This paper analyzes robotized manipulation in the production of TV screens in a Videocolor plant in Anagni. A general procedure for manipulation analysis, based on the elementary actions concept, was applied to the study of robotized workcell performance and parameters. Manipulation analysis is presented as a practical application to stress its feasibility for practicing engineers. Kinescope manipulation by an industrial robot in a robotized workcell was analyzed and critical movement recognized and numerically evaluated. We also focused on performance and design parameters of workcell operation to significantly improve productivity through adjustments in robot and workcell programming and by slightly redesigning the workcell. This work was done under a research contract supported by Videocolor Ltd., Anagni, Italy, and results implemented in a new robotized workcell.
