Thursday, July 11th the Knotts Company, of Berkeley Heights, presented the County College of Morris with a UR 3 Model Universal Robot (CB Series). The 6-axis robotic arm is designed to mimic the range of motion of a human arm and will provide the opportunity for CCM faculty and students of the Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing Building (slated to be open in 2020) to familiarize themselves with the most innovative technology currently being used in STEM fields.
The robot will provide students with the opportunity to learn about arm functions, ease of flexible deployment, programming, and performance of various manual labor operations vital to automating factory floors today. “We are grateful for the generosity of The Knotts Company. The robot will help foster workplace scenarios for our students to receive hands-on training and preparation for the workforce,” remarked Patrick Enright, vice president for Professional Studies and Applied Sciences at CCM.
The Knotts Company’s donation is an exciting contribution to CCM’s soon to be open facility and demonstrates the collaborating efforts of the college with industry representatives in its mission to provide students with a high-quality education and businesses with top-notch employees.
