Caz Students Present to SMEEF in Michigan

Riley Lordon & Savannah Johnson, juniors at Cazenovia HS took what they learned in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) class last year and brought it to life in Michigan this week. They presented “Industrial Robots in the Classroom” at the SME Headquarters in Southfield Michigan to many members of the SME Education Foundation as well as their sponsors.

They built a robotic workcell which simulated a grinding operation that included an electric turntable parts feeder that they made, a grinder made out of VEX components, and a Dobot Magician robot. It was a closed loop system that used inputs and outputs with the Dobot to complete the task and then palletize the final product.

Watch this video below for a quick intro to what it does, and stay tuned for much, much more.
