Welcome to the DRAN Arm Project
This is a project from Portland State University's Robotics Club to update and maintain an industrial arm robot
Nearly 10 years ago, two industrial robots (Sieko RT-3000 and RT-3200) were donated to Maseeh College of Engineering's Mechanical engineering department. When the Mechanical engineering department couldn't decide what to use them for, they ended up in the basement of the fourth avenue building for nearly a decade. In the last few months there's been a growing interest in getting the arms in working order for robotic research. This Project will outline and maintain a proposal for operating the arms in a safe environment, while also updating and rebuilding the controller so that the arm can be programmed using a modern operating system on a standard 120VAC supply. A tertiary goal of this project is to keep the project as transparent as possible while still maintaining the high standards of the Maseeh Collage of Engineering.
