Discussing parasitic phenomena (unwanted, unforeseen, or limiting behaviors) rising from the dynamic behavior of real machines, this volume describes the potential causes and effects of these behaviors and provides indications that could minimize their influence on the mechanical system in question. Highlighting industrial devices in the manufacturing industry, including industrial indexing devices and industrial robots, it offers case studies, advanced models, design methods, and short examples of applications. The book is of critical importance for any manufacturing enterprise that produces significant amounts of objects through a process with one or more automated phases.
