Hi all,

Why do paint robots have different kinematics (angle between 4 and 5 axes is 45 degrees (not 90 deg).

Is it for avoiding singularities?

What advantages and disadvantages of this kinematics? Why does this kinematic scheme used only for paint robots?

It is primarily to avoid singularities, as I understand it.  Paint robots prioritize long, smooth, constant-velocity plans much more than most industrial robots, as opposed to strength and speed.

The paint-style wrist (I've never heard the technical term for this type of wrist), as I understand it, is slower, weaker, and more mechanically complex (and as such, more prone to wear and/or mechanical failure) than the "normal" triple-roll wrists.

One other advantage the "paint" wrists have is that they can be completely hollow through the center, which some robots (Reis laser-welding robots are one example, IIRC) make use of to avoid running complex hose/cable bundles down the outside of the arm.

i am struggling now but 120-degree - yes, is in my mind confirmed from P200 hardware rj3 beyond, the wrist was 120-degree - and if i recall correctly, a 100 degree wrist on earlier paint models (P-150? until some point it also took the 120-deg? not sure, i think it may have been also an option), i might be able to confirm later

i'm not sure paint robot programming prioritises long, smooth and constant paths above any other applications, so I can't agree on that.
