Abstract: Currently glass production industry is growing at a very fast rate and its need high technology procedure to support its manufacturing process. To provide an efficient manufacturing environment such as producing, packaging or handling the glass product, a high-end technology is required and the use of latest technology also has an impact on the production cost. Thus, automated glass handling robots is one kind of latest technology appliance to provide a smoother and more. It is unavoidable during the manufacturing process, a product-sorting sequence performed in the middle of the process such as to transfer glass products from a lane of conveyor to another lane. Therefore, a robotic arm with gripping mechanism is required to perform this function. A glass-handling robotic arm with reflective sensing element could be helpful when differentiation of materials is needed during pick-and-place sequence of glass products. To provide an efficient, the glass-handling robotic arm must be able to grip and pick up desired glass products without slipping and dropping the product accidentally. This is crucial to reduce downtime of the process and material losses. The present research work deals with the design of articulated robotic arm for handling glass product. This paper discussed the design and fabrication of the robotic arm and the detail methodology of the research is described.
