April 2014 Newsletter

Hello all and thank you for reading the April newsletter from BotBrain® Educational Robots.  This month I would like to talk to you about one of my favorite subjects.  You may be thinking it must be robots – right!  Not entirely true...its manufacturing and how computers, robots and automation are an important part of how a number of things are produced just like our BotBrain® products.

Below are pictures of the BotBrain® Sensors being cut on a Computer Numerical Control Machining Center or more commonly referred to as a CNC Mill.  The CNC uses commands programed into the control to move the tool, rotate the spindle, turn on the coolant pump and guide the cutter along the X, Y and Z coordinates inside the machine.  The machine uses the Cartesian Coordinate System you learned in your math class to move the tool.  That’s why we believe that math and programing are important subjects to learn since we use math skills everyday to operate our equipment and engineer our product.  Maybe one day you’ll be designing, developing or operating the next futuristic machine to make robots, planes, cars or whatever you can imagine.
