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: Robotic Automation Flow Line - Mechanical

Team PAS, in partnership with team AIR, has designed and implemented a 4-robot automation flow line in LSSU’s robotics lab. The line consists of four Staubli industrial robots, a PLC with DeviceNet, a conveyor system, four vision systems, robotics tool changers, end of arm devices, and several other flow line sensors and components. The team selected and integrated a pallet conveyor system, designed and manufactured end-of-arm tooling, installed and integrated components, and provided PLC programming. Automated assembly of model zambonis will be demonstrated.

Analysis of 2,4-D in Sediment Samples Taken from Paradise Lake, MI

Benjamin McPhail

Two organizations from Paradise Lake, concerned for the environmental quality of Paradise Lake, wanted to test a few methods to help control the population of Eurasian Milfoil to help promote continuing recreational activity in the lake. Each organization had different ideals: one was for natural treatment, the other wanted to explore chemical treatment avenues. One method chosen by the latter organization was chemical treatment using 2,4-Dichlorophenoxy Acetic Acid (2,4-D), a common pesticide, especially in agriculture. To determine whether there was a risk to the lake or surrounding groundwater sources, sediment samples were collected and analyzed for the presence of 2,4-D.
