Harwin is ensuring that students attending Havant & South Downs College (HSDC) have access to the hardware necessary to support their ongoing education, by donating a robot arm in a package worth more than £30,000. In September of 2018, in association with HSDC, the company established the Harwin Academy. After completing the two-year course, students receive an internationally-recognized qualification, plus the option to then join Harwin's apprentice scheme.
The robot arm that Harwin Academy students will be working with is an RV-FR from Mitsubishi Electric. With a 504mm maximum reach radius, the 3kg servo motor-driven articulated unit supports motion across 6 axes, with an incorporated absolute encoder technology for accurate positioning and operational repeatability. This robot arm is predominantly intended for tasks like the inspection and assembly of small component parts.
