Robotics and Automation

Due to the continuous increase in the labor cost and the steady decrease in the prices of computers, high tech equipment and robotic systems, it became necessary for American industries to automate their production lines or relocate out of the country where labor cost is much cheaper. Therefore, our Engineering Technologies graduate must be trained with state-of-the-art technology in automated systems and possess the practical knowledge necessary to support the national economy and industrial competitiveness. Accordingly, the Institute for Research and Technology Transfer has embarked on the development of a full scale industrial automated robotic manufacturing island.

The automated manufacturing island consists of the following industrial systems:

  • Cincinnati Milacron Sabre 750 CNC Milling Machining Center
  • Cincinnati Milacron Talon 208 CNC Lathe, Turning Center
  • CINCINNATI MILACRON T3-7776 Industrial Robot
  • BROWN & SHARP PFxCell Coordinate Measuring Machine

In addition, IRTT hosts a Vision Guided Robotics System that consists of an Adept Three Industrial Robot with quick changer of the end of arm tooling and camera for circuit board assembly to locate the chips on the circuit board accurately and efficiently. The adept robot could replace 3 operators per shift, while enhancing productivity and reducing the cost per unit.
