Upcoming Training

UNIVERSAL ROBOTS CORE TRAINING

After the 2-day course, you will have hands-on experience with a UR robot. You will have programmed the robot several times to perform common tasks, including the operation of common peripherals (conveyors, sensors, grippers). You will be able to optimize a pick and place flow, perform palletization, understand safety concepts, and know the additional resources available to them both online and through other training courses. You will be ready to return to your own robot and create pick and place, palletization, and other common application programs on your own.

Learn to:

  • Manage the robot safely understanding safety concepts
  • Build and optimize programs for several typical applications such as pick & place, palletizing, polishing or dispensing
  • Connect and handle peripheral equipment, such as sensors, grippers or conveyor belts
  • Know the online tools and resources available to help with application programming
Class Cost: $1,000

Upcoming Training

October 20–21, 2021 – 9:00AM-5:00PM – Fremont, CA

UR ADVANCED TRAINING

When you complete the UR Certified Advanced course, you will be able to fully understand and utilize all commands in the Universal Robots “User Interface”. You will also be able to better optimize your application and reduce the number of waypoints used by utilizing variable waypoints and user defined features. The latter feature can assist you to align the movement of the robot to the installation or environment. Conveyor tracking and advanced force control will also be explored in this training course. This course enables every developer to deploy applications that account for more environmental variables.

This class includes:

  • Create and structure your programs in a professional manner
  • In-depth knowledge of functions in UR User Interface
  • URScript programming language
  • Work with variable positions and multiple TCPs
  • Referencing and shift positions on different coordinate systems for e.g. artificial vision applications
  • Track and coordinate the movement of the robot with conveyor belts
  • Use the integrated force/torque sensor for developing complex applications using the force feedback
Class Cost: $1,000
