Who Should Attend

The MRC Basic Programming Course is an introductory course to the MRC Controller and programming of the Yaskawa Motoman® K-Series and SK-Series industrial robots. No prior knowledge of robot programming or of the MRC Controller is required.

Course Overview

The training module consists of classroom lectures in which Yaskawa Motoman instructors present course material consisting of programming commands, reinforced with demonstrations. The commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Students enhance the materials covered in the lectures with actual hands-on programming in the Yaskawa Motoman Canada Ltd. 2400 square foot, demonstration and training laboratory. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises including actual programming to emphasize commands covered in class lectures. Classes are kept small in size, typically 12 or fewer students, in order to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows the students to work with each other and YMC instructors in order to grasp the concepts of operating a robot.

Course Materials

Students receive a copy of the MRC Basic Programming manual, which details commands and programming techniques for the Yaskawa Motoman® MRC Controller. Additional handouts are provided relating to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions and to bring up specific programming issues.


Yaskawa Instructors cover topics, which enable the students to manipulate the robot, create robot programs and modify existing programs. An overview of the primary topics covered in the course is provided below: - Robot Safety - System Power Up/Down - Path Editing - Fault Recovery - Coordinate Systems - Programming Pendant - Cut/Paste Functions - Arithmetic Variables - Position Levels - User Frames - Job Functions - Speed Correction - Tool Centre Point (TCP) - I/O & Control Instructions
