Abstract

Applications of Industrial Robots in The Classroom, KALEB TOLLER, JORGE ORTEGA-MOODY, ADOLFO ENRIQUE SAMUDIO CANO, and MICHAEL TYLER EDLIN, Department of Engineering Technology Management, Morehead State University, Morehead, Kentucky 40351.

Parallel robots are growing in popularity in industry for their agility and speed. Although they may have a smaller work space compared to serial robots they are able to move within their workspace more efficiently. A growing concern about industrial robots in general is training. The costliest portion of the hiring process in any field is training, to tackle this issue a group of students at Morehead State University have created a Delta robot including a functioning teach pendant that functions and feels like a real Fanuc teach pendant. The teach pendant allows students to program a virtual delta robot and run simulations and later use the same program on the physical classroom robot shared by multiple students. For half the price of a Fanuc LR Mate 200iD a classroom could a have a fully functioning delta robot with ten teach pendants making industrial training affordable and allowing young students a competitive edge in the job market.
