Basic Robotic Programming

Course Duration

The duration is 3 days.

Frequency of course offering Weekly Monday-Wednesday

If you have purchased additional options such as positioning equipment, Touch Sensing, and Thru-Arc-Seam-Tracking, you will be scheduled for 1-2 additional days for these options.


Robotic Programming Training Course Prerequisites

The robotic programming training course is conducted on a combination lecture-laboratory basis. Typically, students are grouped (2) per robot and work as a team in performing the hands-on exercises. The course is intensive. Students attending are expected to have some experience in one or more of the following:


Welding, Electrical, Computer, C.N.C.

Prior robot programming experience is a plus. Assignments are made which require some evening study. The proper selection of the employees to be trained and their interest in being trained are critical success factors in any robot installation.

Students should have experience in GMAW and welding processes.

The basic robot programming class is geared towards programmers responsible for maintaining their systems.
