Academy / Training / NX100 Advanced Arc Programming

Classroom lectures on programming commands are reinforced with demonstrations. Commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Material covered in the lectures are enhanced with actual hands-on programming by students in Motoman's 8,500-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises. Class size is kept small, typically 12 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on atmosphere. Students work with each other and with the help of Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming. To perform the hands-on practice exercises, students are typically assigned 2 to a programming pendant at MTEC and no more than 3 to a programming pendant On-Site.

Course Overview

The NX100 Advanced Arc Welding Module, an advanced course on Motoman HP/ES/EA-series industrial robots, provides programming instruction for operators with a working knowledge of the NX100 controller. As a minimum, the student should have a basic understanding of the GMAW process and a working knowledge of NX100 Basic topics. The NX100 Basic Programming with Arc Welding Module is the normal prerequisite to this module.

Course Materials

Students receive the NX100 Advanced Arc Welding Programming Manual which details welding commands and programming techniques for the Motoman NX100 controller. Additional handouts relate to specific topics covered in class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions, and to bring up specific programming issues.
