Abstract: Robots requires specialized supporting structure to accurately hold the work piece during the operations. Precision made robot table and robot platforms are standard capital equipment and are required in today’s high technology manufacturing companies. Most robots are designed for specific functions within a custom environment for performing elevated tasks. Each robot usually requires its own custom manufactured robot pedestal, custom built to size and strength in order to ensure immobility while firmly supporting the robot. So robotic structures are challenging because of the involving of dynamic forces. These dynamic forces further amplify themselves during emergency stop operation. Therefore robot pedestal should be well designed for operative loads and dynamic loads using estops, and also for transportation loads. Objective of the project is to design and analysis of robotic pedestal and also optimizing the structural aspects of pedestal.
