Abstract

Over the summer I collaborated with Anderson Brass Company (ABCO) and Integrated Systems Incorporated (ISI), two local companies. I worked closely with ASEA Brown Boveri’s (ABB) YuMi collaborative robot, designing an application for it in ABCO’s manufacturing process. Using the Integrated Vision software of the YuMi I was able to program it to pick up pieces of brass in any orientation and place them in a fixture to be machined in. While the YuMi worked for the process, there are robots available to companies which are better suited to the task I tried to automate; however, these robots were not available to us as we only had access to the YuMi.
