No Pre-Requisite Required

Our Basic Robot Programming Class is a half-day session with a capacity of 8 students per class.

Sign up for one of the 4 classes listed below:

  • Wednesday, October 19th – 8:00am – 12:00pm (lunch included)
  • Wednesday, October 19th 1:00pm – 5:00 pm (lunch included)

  • Thursday, October 20th 1:00pm – 5:00 pm (lunch included)

This half-day class is designed for beginners who have never worked with robots—all you need is a willingness to learn robotics. This hands-on course starts with a basic introduction on best methods and practices, and is followed by lab time. By the end of this half-day, you will not only learn how to program 4- and 6-axis robots, but also learn how to set up I/O for a robot cell. This is our 8th year teaching this course, and it provides a great foundation in software-based robotics programming.

In this class, all instruction segments will be followed by lab time. We will provide laptops on-site.

Students will learn the following:

  • EPSON RC+7.0 Programming Software
  • Icon Functionality in Program File Creation
  • Moving the Robot Axis Through Ranges of Motion
  • Teaching, Naming, & Editing Points
  • Basic Program Functions for Motions — (Move, Go Jump, Arc, Circle, limZ)
  • Basic Program Functions for Utility — (Loop, Integer, Timer, Comments, & Instructions)
  • Sub-Routines From Call Functions, Labels, & Go-to Functions
  • Collision Boxes & Shared Zone Logic
  • Program I/O Communication — (Types of Communication, Program Examples)
  • Tool Center Offset Functionality; TCP Wizard
  • Tray Pallet Function & Simulation

Cost: $300 (We will award a $100 credit if you’ve purchased an EPSON robot from us. FREE admission for students and faculty).
