EDT Takes Home Awards!

March 13-14th, 2015

Chicago Engineering Design Team competed at the Jerry Sanders Design Competition at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign.  EDT had three teams representing UIC over the weekend: Team GLaDOS, Team Pandora, and Team Richard.  Against fierce competition, Team GLaDOS and Team Pandora were able to take home the 3rd and 4th place awards, respectively!

DRO Install on our Bridgeport Mill

Over the course of a few days, and with the gracious help of our alumni, EDT was able to install the Acu-Rite 200S on our trusty old Bridgeport J-head mill. The installation included two optical encoders for the table, one for the quill, and the control unit. After everything was installed, the mill was trammed and checked for repeatability and accuracy using a dial indicator. Many thanks to the UIC College of Engineering for their continued support!

No more reading dials and counting rotations for us!
