Robotics Training

  • ABB Operation and Basic Programming

    The detailed course is designed to familiarize students with basic operation, safety and programming. The target audience is technicians, engineers or anyone who will be programming or editing programs on a regular basis. Anyone intending to write programs 'from scratch' would be encouraged to take this detailed programming course. This course has a slightly higher classroom vs. hands-on percentage. It is open to all and is recommended before attempting the advanced course.

    Course Goal:
    Students that pass the course will be required to show they are able to:

    • Safely start, stop and operate the robot.
    • Jog the robot in all coordinate systems, and demonstrate knowledge of when or why they would change.
    • Create a program that has routines, inputs, outputs, conditional jumps or calls, and frames.
    • Step through the program as well as edit it.

    Prospective Students:
    The target audience is technicians, engineers or anyone who will be programming or editing programs on a regular basis. This is above the level a basic operator would need. Students who complete the course should be able to set up, program and operate a robotic system with minimal outside help.

    Course Length: 40 Hours

    Tuition:  $2343

  • Fanuc Advanced Programming

    This is for the student that has already completed the basic course or already has a large amount of experience in setting up and programming Fanuc robots. This course will take the student through all of the necessary steps to integrate a Fanuc robot into a new work environment. The student will get detailed information on what the more advanced functions do as well as when to use them. This course is tailored for the experienced robot user, though no prerequisite is required. All novice robot programmers are highly encouraged to take the basic course first. If you have any questions about which course to take we can perform a test to determine placement.

    Course Goal:
    Students that pass the course will be required to show they are able to:

    • Set multiple frames and describe when and why they would use them.
    • Set reference points and describe the use of, and advantage to regular outputs.
    • Describe when to use different Universal Operator Panel (UOP) set-ups and how to change the robot to accept and use them.
    • Work with a partner to successfully set up a robot cell. The cell must function as described and will incorporate all the advanced features taught in the class.

    Prospective Students:
    The target audience is programmers, technicians, engineers or anyone who will be setting up a robot in a new environment. Students who complete the course should be able to set up a complete robotic cell without outside help.
