The project

Precise Welding Positioning Robot. Is a test concept project, that could be a helpful industrial machine, to reduce the time needed to assemble a beam.

The machine, has a support for new plates. The robot takes the plates and place them over the beam at the programed position. Then, the welder can weld the plate on this position. No need to measure, marking or use adittional tools.

Reduce time

Put the pieces of a beam at the right position, is a really time consuming task on fabrication.

Improved precision

Use of a collaborative robot, can automate only the part of the task needs precision.

Enhanced safety

Less manipulation of heavy pieces, can reduce the risk of injury to the worker.

Progress of this week

The Fab Academy is a very intense course of 20 weeks. We learn digital fabrication principles an practices. Every week, we learn topics like computer aided design, electronics, computer controlled machining, 3d scanning/printing, and so much more.
