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).

You will receive: Certificate, Portfolio, Pen, T-Shirt, USB Drive with Recorded Class, and Lunch
