Proposed Facilities in the JC Innovation Center/Robotics Laboratory

Industrial Robot Manipulators

The example shown below is a VP-6242G 6-axis robot arm with 420 mm reach and 2.5 kg payload. A RC7 high-performance controller drives the robot that is programmed offline using Denso's new Wincaps3 software package on EIGHT dedicated workstations. All STUDENTS will get complete hands on experience to using ALL hardware in the Laboratory.
