Chain maker celebrates 140 years of innovation


ABB COLUMN


We’re expanding our robot training courses for 2019


This year will see the launch of an expanded range of training courses for robot operators, programmers and maintenance staff covering our paint robots and new OmniCore controller.


The courses will take place at our Training Centre in Milton Keynes. The new Paint robot course will be an


instructor-led, five-day seminar with practical exercises to teach participants how to programme a robot safely. Working with IRC5P (Paint) robots, students will learn how to operate the robot using both hand-held controllers and offline programming software such as RobotStudio. Participants will be able to control the robot in

manual and automatic modes, and operate ABB’s RobotStudio, application-specific programming software packages. Using these packages, operators can edit programs offline without interrupting the production line on a simulation of the shop floor. The OmniCore controllers course will cover our


new OmniCore robot controller family, which offers the best-in-class motion control and path accuracy, but in a 50 per cent smaller footprint for maximum installation flexibility and floor space utilisation. Designed to help customers build the factories


of the future, the controller family comes with the ABB Ability digital platform, ABB Ability Connected Services and ABB’s SafeMove2 safety software built into it. By enabling ABB’s SafeMove2 software solution within the controller, operators are able to make small connected industrial robots collaborative through additional safety settings. The course is designed to teach participants how


to conveniently connect their existing operations and how to use the operating system, RobotWare7, through ABB’s newly redesigned FlexPendant. The course involves four and a half days of


training, with a hands-on session where participants will learn how to operate YuMi in manual and automatic modes with integrated vision inspection tools. It teaches students to safely operate collaborative robot equipment, create basic programs and configure cameras using RobotStudio’s vision program to move the robot to a detected object.
