WHAT WAS DONE AND WHY? WHAT WAS FOUND? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

The Delta Robot

Technical Training for industrial robots has been a concern in automation attributable to production cost, software, and fee for training. For a school to purchase an industrial robot, one must have setup space for work stations and be capable of affording each unit. Work space for stations and affordability has been a leading cause in why students lack hands on experience with robots in an industrial environment. Our team is providing research with design and manufacturing an affordable robot using SolidWorks 3D CAD design software, 3D printers, and the HAAS CNC Machine. Fully Designed in 3D software a transfer of the Delta Robot can be altered from reality into virtual reality. Virtual Reality has offered opportunities to provide hands on experience to students from industrial equipment without the possibility of ever touching the unity. We have found by producing a virtual environment to simulate real world applications is a safe way of training students for operation control, maintenance, and programming. Thus, training for automation transforms from an exclusive limited source in reality to an opportunity in the number of certifications increasing through virtual reality.
