The students demonstrated this year’s robot during a visit to the company.
Martinrea one of the county’s largest employers has hundreds of robots ‘in house’.
Phil McDowell, Cobrots coach said the top brass at the facility were excited to see what the robot could do.
Martinrea has been a primary sponsor of the team for several years.
McDowell said although the students couldn’t operate the robot the staff at Martinrea was impressed with the design, programming and TIG welding details.
The team will compete in weeks five and six (March 30 & 31 at Shepherd High School in Midland, and April 6 -7 at Lakeview High School in Battle Creek).
Besides Martinrea the team would like to express gratitude for the continued support of other local businesses, Cobra Moto, Mr Rooter, Orbitform, Jonesville Tool, the Rotary Club, Walmart, Lions Club Intl, Stockhouse Printing, Solidworks, FIRST, Stoll Metal, Sand Lake Party Store, Jonesville Lumber, NEFCO, G&G Glass and Shirt Shack.
