I like to keep my workspace like 16’s 2017 robot.

Nice and neat.

Ive seen your desk. If that’s what you consider neat I consider what you just said to 16 an insult.

Great bot as always guys. Hope to see it at Champs or iri.

My jokes don’t quite correlate with reality.

I guess it’s a neat robot. It does some stuff, it seems.


#16

What kind of wheels are you using in your intake?


#17

I’m not on the team so can’t say for sure but they look like the Andymark Compliant Wheels.


#18

Would I be able to get a close up on how your gear mechanism works or an explanation in how it works.


#19

They are west coast products flex wheels…

Super sticky and surprisingly durable. Great product.


#20

I can give an explanation now and then grab some pics tomorrow maybe.
An intake roller filled with WCP flex wheels pulls the gear under the pickup mechanism. A cylinder fires the pickup down into the center hole on the gear. Another cylinder compresses a polyurethane ring, expanding it’s OD into the center hole on the gear, holding the gear. Then three more cylinder work together to rotate and lift the gear into position.
