In Robotics and Materials Handling 1, students work with ScorBase software to develop and write robot programs for manipulating objects and other automated tasks.
The training program uses one of Intelitek’s education robotic arms and accessories such as a conveyor belt, rotary table, parts feeder and parts bin, as well as I/O devices such as an experiment table, photoelectric sensor and microswitches.
The activities challenge students to design solutions for industrial robotic applications, with emphasis on real industrial concerns, such as recording accurate positions, optimizing programming and increasing productivity.
