Alum Success

"I graduated from LSSU in Mechanical Engineering in 1999, and have since had a heavy focus in robotics and systems integration. I spent my first 7 years with FANUC in Rochester Hills as a product manager, and have since worked for Hartness International managing a robotic automation group. We continue to grow at a rapid pace, and will integrate 60+ robots this year and see no slow down in sight. My experience at LSSU has enabled me to take charge in this challenging and growing market."

Project Description: Vision Integrated Robotics Workcell

Applied Manufacturing Technologies, Inc. required a portable robotic workcell to demonstrate current technology at tradeshows and open houses. Team SVS designed and built a workcell which integrates a robotic arm, vision system, and conveyor system. It accepts a user-defined product order via a touch screen, and relay the information to the robot arm. The robot fulfills the order through the use of a camera to recognize the products, retrieve them from the conveyor system and place the products on an output shelf.
