Robotics Lab

Welcome to the Robotics Laboratory at Colorado State University-Pueblo

The following pages describe a number of Industrial Robots available in this lab. For each robot, you can find a brief description, a How-To tutorial illustrating start-up and shut-down procedures as well as simple programming examples, and, possibly, an interactive session ( local/robot lab) allowing you to control the robot remotely and watch the robot arm carry out your instructions. This last option is not always enabled. Call your instructor for more information on this laboratory.

Our Robots

  •  

    Adept SCARA

    The Adept robot is a four (4) axes servo controlled arm capable of moving loads up to 1kg. It is a Selective Compliance Assembly Robot ARM (SCARA) in a VROT configuration. Its endeffector is an pneumatically operated gripper whose fingers are guided to always remain parallel to each other.

    Rhino

    The Rhino robot is a five (5) axes servo controlled arm capable of moving loads up to 0.5 kg. It is a jointed arm in a VRRRT configuration. Its endeffector is an electrically operated gripper whose fingers are pivoted.

    In addition, the controller also operates two peripheral device, an index table and a conveyor belt as shown in the above picture. the robot arm and the feeders are coordinated through the robot program.​​
