UT Arlington receives Walmart, Walmart Foundation innovation grant
Date:8/16/2014

UT Arlington has received a $229,214 grant from the Walmart Foundation to build a robotic small motors assembly and testing system that would cut the manufacturing costs of goods, allowing those goods to be produced in the United States that were formerly built overseas.

The Walmart U.S. Manufacturing Innovation Grant was part of an announcement of $4 million in awards to seven research and development institutions at the 2014 U.S. Manufacturing Summit in Denver made possible through the collaboration between Walmart, the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the Walmart Foundation. The grants fund creation of new processes, ideas and jobs that will foster America's growing manufacturing footprint.

Aditya Das, senior research scientist at The University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute, will lead the project here.

UT Arlington President Vistasp Karbhari said the Innovation Fund's support of the UT Arlington Research Institute positions the University as a strong partner for industry with the know-how to propel manufacturing innovation.

"Walmart, the Walmart Foundation and the U.S. Conference of Mayors clearly recognize that preeminent research universities are the place where engineering solutions can best be devised to increase manufacturing efficiency and lower costs," Karbhari said. "This significant collaboration will bridge the gap between the capabilities of robotic automation and the cost-prohibitive nature of most automation processes."

Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck endorsed UT Arlington's full proposal for the grant.

"The City of Arlington collaborates with The University of Texas at Arlington on a wide range of programs, and we're looking forward to expanding the reach and scope of those programs to help our region continue to be a beneficial environment for industry," Cluck said. "Arlington is a city that offers a particularly positive climate for business, and one of our largest areas of focus is ma
