Greenville Tech Foundation receives SCARA Robot from the Staubli Corporation

The Staubli Corporation, with its North American Headquarters in Duncan, SC, has given to the Greenville Tech Foundation, a new SCARA robot.  The gift is valued at $30,000.
 
David Arceneaux, Staublis Operations Manager-Assistant Division Manager, said, We are quite pleased to be able to help Greenville Technical College effectively prepare students for well-paying jobs in our area.  We have been quite impressed with the work we have seen done by the instructors at Greenville Tech.
 
The robot will be used in the mechatronics lab at the Brashier campus to train 45 to 60 students each semester, who are taking courses in automated controls and robotics.  Instructor Duane Anderson said the new robot will allow our students to get more hands on time with all the robots we use in our lab and also allow them to see how a SCARA robot works and the advantages it has over other types.  This is the only SCARA robot we have in the lab.
