Based on a systematic and comparable energetic assessment of 6-axis industrial robots, manufacturers as well as users of such robots gain various possibilities for increasing their resource efficiency. The method described in this paper, which has been developed for this specific purpose, can nevertheless be transferred and extended to other complex assembly and manufacturing systems even with varying deployment scenarios. Thereby a cross-industrial benefit for optimal energetic operation of industrial manufacturing systems can be achieved. By establishing centralized hosting and evaluation of all result data sheets, a large data pool could be created, which can be used for TCO-analysis as well as energetic and resource-efficient plant (equipment) design and, last but not least, for optimization of single components of manufacturing systems.
