Understanding & Using Collaborative Robots (Cobots)

September 9, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

You can improve your career and your company with the cobot class of robots.

Robots can be hard but cobots can be easy and very useful.  Learn how to use cobots and see their many benefits including completing repetitive tasks and performing intricate inspections. After this training class you will be able to identify uses for cobots and be able to implement them.

This training will also provide you with a working knowledge of the easy drag and place instructions for this entry level yet capable robot.  You will learn how to move the cobot arm where you want it and have the cobot repeat the steps.  You will be amazed at how many tasks you can automate and how easy it can be to get started.

Join CCAT for this interactive training session that can be taken either virtually or hands-on/in-person at our state of the art Advanced Technology Center in East Hartford, CT.   The CCAT team will share their expert knowledge and experience on this engaging topic. We will show you how to program and operate a cobot through a hands-on part inspection scenario. Learn how to layout a task, move the robot, and write the program. This program will pick up a part, inspect it with a vision system and then discard bad parts and pack good parts into tray.

– Understand how you can use the cobot class of robots to improve your career and your company.
