  • Patent number: 10092923
    Abstract: This system has an articulated robot having an arm and a base portion which rotatably supports the arm; and a rotation positioner to which the base portion of the articulated robot is mounted. A turn axis of the base portion of the articulated robot is orthogonal to a rotation axis of the rotation positioner. Thus, interference of a workpiece with the arm can be avoided and flexibility of works performed by the robot can be expanded.
