Developed for the manufacturing industry as process-agnostic positioning devices industrial robots are highly flexible machines capable of quickly introducing precision and repeatability to a near-infinite number of processes. Current research into their architectural implications leverages this notion, interrogating the expanded intersection of the material and formal domains allowed through their use. Raccoon has two robotic work cells at its disposal: the first contains two KUKA KR300 industrial robots mounted on linear axes; there are also two Hiwin robots mounted on mobile platforms besides the KUKA robot cell.
The use of each robot varies from semester to semester as coursework and research projects change in scope and application. Due to the time associated with learning to use the robots, their use is primarily limited to projects associated with dedicated coursework taught by the Raccoon team. If you have an individual job that you feel requires the robots, contact the Raccoon staff to discuss the application and possible next steps.
