Pagination or Media Count:
The RD programs in Manufacturing Technology at The Pennsylvania State University have a major emphasis on automation of materials processing and inspection. Two on-going research projects in these areas, that are based on the application of laser technology are 1 the Laser Articulated Robotic System LARS, and 2 the Intelligent Robot Inspection System IRIS. Both of these projects are supported by the U.S. Navy Manufacturing Technology Program. The paper presents the background, current status, research results, and future plans for the LARS and IRIS.
