The Trallfa 3000 robot is an electronically controlled machine made specially for industrial painting. The robot is designed to emulate human body movements. In its original form, the Trallfa robot consists of three basic components namely: robot arm and manipulator, with each axis having a hydraulic drive cylinder and a servo-valve; hydraulic powerpack; and electronic console incorporating a number of tape cassette holders, and recording and playback control. In order to update the control systems of this robot, a scheme for conversion from magnetic tape to computer control of an industrial robot has been developed. Programming has been extended from the normal teach capability to operation from a remote hand-held joystick as well as from the computer console.
