    What kind of engineering works need one company that develop very accuracy arm robots except develop engineer in mechanics or develop engineer in control and what these engineers do in these job?
    What are the knowledge, experiences, requirement that are desirable to have for purchasing engineering in a company that develop very accuracy arm robots?

    Mechanical engineers to design the structures
    Metallurgists to specify bearings and wear tolerances.
    Control engineers - feedback loops and PID control strategies
    Applied mathematicians - determining how and articulated arm can reach each position of 3-dimensional space

    All kinds of specialties to actually manufacture and assemble the various pieces.
    Quality systems engineers
    Technical purchasing people
    Supply chain and transportation
    ...

    GeopherT and djsfantasi - thank you very much for your excellent answers
    My question now is what can be the skills, knowledge and experiences that engineer that work in quality assurance or in technical purchasing or in very accuracy manufacture and very accuracy assembly will desire to have for a company that develop very accuracy arm robots?
    Also I will glad to know more about what do a software engineer in automated software test engineers or software quality control
