Call for class availability

This module is a 2.5-day training class. Classes are held throughout the year on average of once per quarter, and typically close out 30-60 days in advance. Students learn to perform robot calibration, robot and end-effector calibration, TCP-only calibration; they also create and use single robot upgrade filters, and filters for job cloning robot-to-robot and MotoSim CAD-to-robot.

The MotoCal Robot Calibration Module teaches programmers, engineers, maintenance, and service personnel the procedures and concepts to perform robot calibrations and job filtering using the MotoCal and MotoFilter software on the MRC controlled K-series and SK-series robots. Students are required to possess basic programming knowledge of the MRC controller. This can come from attendance at either MRC Basic Programming or MRC K/SK-Series Maintenance. Students must also possess PC skills such as using Explorer for Windows .

Primary topics include:

Course Overview

Classroom lectures cover material in the MotoCal Training Guide. Commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Material covered in the lectures is enhanced with actual hands-on robot calibration and filtering jobs by students in Motoman's 8,500-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises which emphasize commands covered in class lectures. Class size is kept small, typically six or fewer, to promote an inter- active, hands-on learning atmo- sphere. This allows students to work closely with each other and Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of using MotoCal and MotoFilter software.

Course Materials

Students receive a copy of the MotoCal Training Guide which details procedures and functions for MotoCal and MotoFilter software. Additional handouts relate to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions, and to bring up specific calibration and filtering issues.
