Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES METHODS TO AUTOMATE THE PRINTING INDUSTRY THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF ROBOTIC END EFFECTORS, SYSTEMS, AND COMPUTER INTEGRATION. FLEXIBILITY OF ROBOTIC ARMS ARE EXTENDED THROUGH ADVANCED END EFFECTOR DESIGNS BASED ON THE SENSITIVE END EFFECTOR SYSTEM (SEES) CONCEPT. THE SEES HAS PROXIMITY/RANGING, TACTILE, TRACKING, IMAGING, SLIP DETERMINATION AND SLIP CORRECTION CAPABILITIES. COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL ARE RESEARCHED WITH EMPHASIS ON MAP, TOP, AND TCP/IP. COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES ARE APPLIED TO SPECIFIC PROBLEMS WITHIN THE PRINTING INDUSTRY TO LEAD THEM INTO THE "FACTORY OF THE FUTURE". COMPUTER INTEGRATED PRINTING (CIP) IS THE RESULT.
