Bishop Ryan Robotics Team gets a boost from Mohawk's AMRC

“Students on Bishop Ryan's Celt-X-5406 Robotics Team design and build 120-pound robots to compete against teams from around the world. This year (Bishop Ryan) needed our robots to cross defences, score goals, and climb a tower all while fending off our opponents’ offences. We got in touch with Mohawk's Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre after seeing them at the Hamilton Maker Faire. They showed our students cutting-edge additive manufacturing technologies and offered to 3D print our design for an intake roller using nylon SLS. This unique part performed amazingly well, allowing our students to win the Pittsburgh regional and reach the divisional semi-finals at the World Championships.”
