Kilian's Robot Shop of Horrors - 10/05/2001

Click thumbnails for a larger view.

I (Jeff Sampson) am working at Par Systems again. I had my camera at work because I was taking it to RSOh Friday night. So I stopped by the robot lab and took some pictures of one of the big X/Y/Z mills that they sell. This particular one is pretty good size. It is about 15 feet wide and about 30 or 40 feet long. It has about 8 to 10 feet of travel vertically. They sell these to people like Winebago and they cut out full size R/Vs out of foam blocks. Another company uses these to cut full size power boat molds out of foam. I see they have pictures of the boats on their web page.

So we didn't build this at RSOH. :-)

And I work on the nuclear side so I don't work on these robot systems.

Bob H. and Alan are
drilling holes for the power
Four amplifiers are bolted
in. As well as a big terminal
strip that Jeff had.
Alan found these ribbon
cables at ABC Electronics.
They have DB50 connectors.
We needed some hook-up wire

playing tug-of-war.
Now which one should I use...
One channel wired up and
running. Three more to go.
