papercube – Testing the Lasermodule for cutting and slitting the paper.

Today the paper cube team has worked again.
The aim was to test the laser for cutting and slitting the paper. With the help of a small Java program, the motors of the cutting unit has been activated and a test is performed. We are very pleased with the initial results. What do you think?

Jens and Fabrice are members of the papercube project team. In the last days they have been working on our „Module 1“ (The CuttingModule . The carriage with the pencil is used for training purposes in the Java lecture . Later, it is replaced by a laser module . Then it’s possible to cut the paper . The film can be seen exactly how the unit works . We are always impressed how accurate can be constructed with LEGO.


Pictures from our new Gluing-Module

Today the paper cube team has worked again: A part is currently working on the revision of the cutting module . The other team members revise the gluing module. The entire unit is now mounted on a carriage, to apply the adhesive on each point of the paper can.
The special feature of the unit is the contactless gluing. The adhesive is applied by means of pneumatic onto the paper. Therefore we use a small 3-way valve. More on this later 🙂
