Could you describe one of your work days?

I’m a senior at Brennan high school interested in biomedical engineering. Currently enrolled in robotics 2 and various science courses.
My typical day starts with a brainstorming session with mechanical engineers and automation controls engineers. The team works together to determine the steps in the automation. Step one - part is placed on a tray through a vibration feeder. Step two - camera vision system identifies the square in the middle of the plate. Step three - the robot gripper moves to the square and expands to pick up the plate. Step four - robot moves the plate to the press and places the plate inside the tool in the press. Step five - press runs the tool to punch a round hole. The steps continue. The team uses 3D cad models and robotic simulations to verify the parts fit together, do not crash, and they achieve the cycle time required to be competitive.
