Advanced Robotics

  • 9:00AM - 4:00PM, 7 - 9 Jun 2022
  • MAKE UK Technology Hub, Birmingham
  • PPMA Academy

There are many diverse applications of Robots within industry, all of which will require some form of adjustments and reprogramming to be carried out. This could be as a result of maintenance activities, failures or task changes to the system. This course will provide those delegates with a basic level of understanding and experience of Industrial Robots to the more advanced techniques required for the operation, programming and control of more complex robot systems found within industrial settings.

Course content

The course is quite intensive over the three days and is designed to develop and enhance the candidates’ understanding of advanced robotics systems and control. It contains some theory on programming and logic functions as well as tool calibration. It also includes practical exercises to demonstrate and explore the elements of Advanced Robotics covered in this course.

Course content includes:

  • Robotics theory recap
  • Advanced tool calibration
  • Using logic functions
  • Simulated work environments and offline programming
  • Using robots with PLCs

Delegates should ideally have:

  • Completed the EEF Introduction to Robotics or have experience with teach pendant programming.

Whilst there is no formal assessment on this course, delegates will need to demonstrate a good working knowledge and understanding of Advanced Robotics. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance. 

Delivered at the new EEF Hub facility, the Robotics Room contains latest version of the commonest robotic arms and software systems along with simulation software.
