Clutch Test Stand

Students: Justin Baker, Dan Davis, Robert Schneider
Design of a clutch test stand for testing clutches as they are manufactured. This includes the overall structure, operator interface, and PLC control of the test stand.

Interfacing Process Control Trainer to the Web

Students: Derrick Tucker, Nathan Webb
Students are rewiring the trainer to interface to a data acquisition card. They are interfacing the trainer through Labview so the trainer can be controlled and monitored via a TCP/IP interface.

Tool Nipper Station with Vision Camera

First Robotics

Students: Don Becker, Paula Doliboa, Chris Haussler, Zach Shelton
BendArch Engineering is a Senior Design Team comprised of the students listed. They are partnered with Lakota East Robotics for their robotics competition this year. They are using their Miami University experience in helping to mentor thirty-three high school students, who are in sophomore through senior status, build and compete with a championship robot in the First Robotics competition at both the Regional and National level.

Motoman Standard Design for a Torch Tip Changing Box

Students: Adam Tarter, Dan Goforth, Matthew Foister, Jason Collins
This design needed to encompass all of the standard new NX100 ArcWorld product lines offered by the company. Reach study analyses had to be performed for all systems, AutoCAD drawings, BOM's (Bill of Materials), cost effective solutions for saleability, and two alternate designs. One design was a simple torch tip change function, and the other incorporated more of an automatic tip change function with minor operator interaction. We will have video documentation reflecting the actual functionality as part of our final presentation.
