  • providing a surface on an end of a multiple degree of freedom robot, which robot end is highly accurately positionable;

    locating the robot adjacent the base at a position known relative to the base;

    actuating the robot to move the end so that the surface is moved to the predetermined point in space;

    determining the position of the object relative to the surface; and

    moving the object as needed to bring the object into the desired accurate position relative to the surface.
