dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this project was to design, fabricate, and implement a linear-axis rail system for use with the Kawasaki RS03N six axis robots located in the Applied Engineering Center at USI. After the rail system is completed, individuals can issue positioning commands to the motor-driven platform, which will move the platform to different locations along the track. This project was set into motion by a group of past students who were tasked with determining the proper specifications for the rails, slides, bearing and motor. Given that they had to research all that information their overall design portion of the linear-axis rail system lacked some of the qualities instructors were looking for. To design the rail system, significant CAD work was performed to identify the proper solution to the design to make it more robust and user friendly. Upon completion, this project will allow the Robotics (TECH 272) curriculum to expand, by allowing instructors to discuss the importance of motion control systems in manufacturing, and how to implement them. This is a design that instructors are interested in as well which involves implementing the linear-axis rail system for future use in their Robotics labs to further expand the capability of the robot and what the operator can do.
