Robotics Lab

The MSD Robotics lab is an advanced experimental fabrication facility in the Melbourne School of Design at the University of Melbourne.

The Robot Lab extends the Fabrication Workshop’s engagement with advanced fabrication technologies.

The Robot Lab extends the Fabrication Workshop’s engagement with advanced fabrication technologies. Using industrial robot arms, the Robot Lab creates a next generation platform for experimentation, speculation and research into the future of architecture and construction. The Robot Lab is specifically designed to foster hands-on collaborative experimentation with equipment and processes.

The Robot Lab is strategically located in the centre of the Fabrication Workshop and is comprised of two ABB IRB 1200 industrial robot arms, housed in custom made safety cells, and two ABB IRB 120 industrial robot arms, housed in custom mobile safety cells enabling the robots to be used anywhere in the MSD building.
