Week Four – 2013 Build

This week the build team concentrated heavily on fabrication, assembly and installation of the lead screw components.  Several nagging technical challenges were solved.  Additionally, the initial robotic arms were completed – work has continued on the mounting and movement of this arm, and how the arm and actuator will fit on and in the robot.  At the end of this week we will turn over the robot to the controls team for completion of wiring and more troubleshooting. Both the Chairman’s and Woodie Flowers awards are well underway.
