This  course provides key foundational knowledge of the anatomy that goes into the six-axis robot: the specification of robotic properties such as payload and reach requirements, and an overview of how to startup, shutdown, and jog six-axis systems. In manufacturing, the hallmarks of this rapidly developing articulated robot are speed, efficiency, quality maximization, and cost reduction.  This course also covers the fundamental concepts and terminology that small-to-major manufacturers are using to strengthen industries across the U.S.
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Acquire general and vocational knowledge of the process of industrial automation
  • Gain knowledge of engineering experience and skills and apply it to real world case studies
  • Apply new insights to make important decisions and business considerations 
  • Describe the human and social impacts of industrial automation

Who should attend:

  • All engineers across various fields (i.e. mechanical, electrical, computer, etc.) without formal training in robotics from previous academic programs 
  • Individuals who are considering a career in industrial robotics automation 
  • Working engineers in small to mid-size manufacturing companies looking to add robotic automation to their manufacturing process 
  • Owners and managers of companies seeking a greater understanding of robotic integration into manufacturing processes 

Course participants are expected to: 

A Certificate of Completion will be issued to registrants who successfully complete this course
