Course Description

Discover robots and how they are poised to revolutionize manufacturing. This course covers the overall FANUC Spherical Robot Operations. Learners will program, setup and operate the robots and end effector. The FANUC Teach Pendant will be taught & utilized for programming and jogging the robot. This course is intended for an operator, technician, engineer or programmer who may need to setup, modify, record and run a program on a FANUC robot system. Students will set up a specific application, write basic programs, and test them. Upon the successful completion of this course students will be able to take the FANUC Handling Tool certification test. All Manufacturing students including those utilizing CAD/CAM, Electronics, Fluid Power engineering, Machine Design, Packaging of foods, liquids, and medicines would benefit from taking this test.
