This course is an introduction to fixed and flexible automation equipment. An emphasis is placed upon flexible equipment components such as the industrial robot. Robot topics include history, geometric configuration, component subsystems, robot safety, basic programming and operation, and end effector design. Laboratory work includes the use of industrial robot arms to perform various independent functions such as assembly and material handling processes. Other equipment studied includes motion control devices, such as motors and sensors, conveyors and parts feeder mechanisms, use of vision systems as well as other automation equipment used in manufacturing. All students taking RAET 210C will be charged a $50 course fee. (Prequisites: MATH 140C and MFET 111C, each with a grade of “C” or higher and CPET 107C with a grade of “C-“ or higher or permission of the Department Chair of Robotics and Automation Engineering Technology.)
