Robot Lab (Room G23)
Level 03 - Machine Certification


ABB IRB 1200 robots are medium sized, multipurpose industrial robots with a reach of 901mm. The MSD Robot Lab has two ABB 1200 robots which are used by student for exploration and investigation of robotics in architecture. Each robot is mounted in a cell that is designed to enable safe, hands-on exploration with robotics and varied end effectors, or tools. The robots can be operated independently or the cells can be joined together to become a collaborative cell. A wide range of end effectors can be connected to the end of the robot allowing the robot to be used for a huge variety of tasks such as to move, shape, bend or melt materials or even 3d print.
