What do you hope to get out of the group?

I am working on a concept to automate a punching machine and I would like to learn how I can do this.

Would you be interested in giving an informal presentation or demo or leading a topic discussion?

I could give presentation on what I do.

What skills do you bring to the group?

I have 20 experience designing and fabricating metal fabrications. Although I am not well versed in robotics I am very mechanicaI. I own a small fabricating shop. I have access to many fabricating tools. Mig, Tig, and Stick welders. We can weld aluminum, stainless steel, and mild steel. We have saws, drills, a milling machine, punchpresses, a paint room, and many other tools.

What types of robot projects (or discussions) are you working on or interested in?

Automated puching and cutting machine where the material moves and not the machine. I have fully automatic saw where the material moves and the saw head stays in one place. That gave me the idea on automating the punch.


I own a small metal fabrication company.I have over 20 years experience in metal fabricating. I enjoy looking for ways to improve on my techniques by creating machines and fixtures that can make work easier and more efficient.
