College Automation and Robotics
Automation and robotics solutions provide college students with knowledge to operate, program, troubleshoot and perform maintenance on any industrial automated system. From simulation software to authentic industrial robots, we can enhance your program to incorporate industry-relevant skills and a chance to earn robot operator certifications.
Industrial robotics training in the classroom can be safely achieved through the CERT program, available with necessary instructor training and curriculum. Students learn concepts in basic robot operation, dual check safety, integrated vision systems (iRVision), and programming a logic controller. The Education Training Cart incorporates a compact robot housed in a self-contained mobile enclosure. The lightweight robot is designed for small part handling, high-speed picking and assembly applications.
High school robotics programs love the fenceless robot for the ability to get up-close to the equipment. This lightweight robot is designed for small part handling, high-speed picking and assembly applications. It features FANUC DC Position and Speed Check software with an Allen-Bradley proximity Safety Laser Scanner so students can safely operate the robot without the need for the protective fencing.
The CSM (Connected Smart Manufacturing) is an intelligent manufacturing system using the latest Industry 4.0 connected advanced manufacturing equipment and techniques. The system is a four-robot manufacturing cell, working in conjunction with a CNC Mill and utilizing one APT MTEC machine tender CERT cart and three APT LR Mate CERT cart bases. The fully-automated system machines and assembles a product of your choosing.
The AM-CERT Cell utilizes a FANUC M10 or M20 robot with communication to a PLC. To accommodate limited space requirements, this cell folds up in a compact footprint of 54″ wide by 72″ deep, and then expands into a 10’ x 10’ manufacturing work cell giving ample area for conveyors, palletizing, or pick and place activities. Students will have a hands-on experience with standard industrial components they are most likely to see in real manufacturing environments.
