Poster Title

Robotic Arm Positioning

Institution

Western Kentucky University

Abstract

The purpose of this project was to design, build, and verify the performance of a system that would improve production efficiency in the production of brake drums. This system was operated by a designated employee, and allowed for the rapid replacement and accurate orientation of a robotic arm during the manufacturing process. This project was sponsored by a regional industry, which issued specific design requirements and provided information pertaining to the existing system. The main goal of our design was to save our customer both time and money by improving an already functional production process. The current procedure for accurate positioning is slightly more tedious than our customer would like. Decreasing down time would potentially increase production, which would reduce production cost. In addition, precise positioning would ensure the quality of the finished product. Our team accomplished our design goals by paying special attention to our customer's specifications, the current system in place at the factory, and any input provided by our customer.
