Automated Manufacturing with Low Cost Machines using Solar Energy in Remote and Rural Areas

    Department of Mechanical Engineering, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada


Abstract : In this paper, automated method of manufacturing in remote and rural areas are discussed. These areas many times lack supply of electrical energy. This is overcome by introducing efficient method of solar energy conversion into electricity using photo- voltaic solar panels. Next, to introduce better productivity and quality control, x-y robots are used which use micro-processor control. The end-effector of this robot carries an embroidery frame which is given motion in two dimensions. The two-dimensional motion is co-ordinated with sewing machine needle’s motion.
