The CIM and Robotics laboratory at the ORT Braude was opened in 1997. It is located at the ground level of the central building of the college in Hall D106. It occupies a space of more than 100m2 in close proximity to the Computer Aided Design laboratory (Hall D107) the Strength and Measurement Laboratory (Hall 108) and the Control Laboratory (Hall D109). The laboratory was established in order to provide our students with knowledge and hands-on experience in the area of Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Robotics. Israel’s most important industry – the HiTech industry depends heavily on the ability of engineering universities and colleges to provide their students with modern and updated equipment to accompany their theoretical studies. The CIM and Robotics laboratory presents the students the most advanced methods in various production processes. These modern methods are based upon the emerging technologies of computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) and flexible manufacturing (FMS). They allow for faster development of new and improved products of high quality, shorter development and production cycles, faster delivery times, reduced production costs, and the ability to compete with the ever-changing demands of the international markets. The Laboratory serves students in the department of Industrial Engineering and Management and department of Mechanical Engineering. It is used by a large number of undergraduate students for carrying out supervised assignments and projects. The Laboratory is based on a semi industrial CIM/FMS training facility designed and build by Eshed Robotech. It consists of all the stages of computer integrated manufacturing (CIM), from product design to product realization.
