ABC’s BattleBots has support from the welding and motor industries

It’s great and all that robots can help assemble complex machinery, but it’s even greater when they fight! ABC’s BattleBots showcases such battles on Sunday nights at 9 P.M./8 P.M Central. This series follows a group of tech-minded competitors who design and operate remote-controlled armed and armored machines. The machines are designed to fight in an arena combat elimination tournament.

This season includes robots with awesome names like Captain Shrederator, Ghost Raptor, and HyperShock. Each team includes builders who come from a variety of backgrounds and are comprised of family members, significant others, colleagues, and friends. Research and development engineers, machinists, accounting managers, and graduate research assistants are all putting their minds to entertaining use.

Team sponsors who provide welding gear to the teams have deep roots in a number of engineering fields. I’ll just go ahead and list them off: Lincoln Electric, Vex Robotics, Worchester Polytechnical Institute, Magmotor Technologies, Nocturna Fabrication and more.
