The MotoSim EG Offline Programming Module teaches programmers, engineers, and service personnel the fundamentals of robot cell development and offline programming concepts based on the Motoman MRC, XRC, NX100 controllers (for K-, SK-, SKX-, UP-, HP-, EA-, ES- series robots). The MRC, XRC or NX100 Basic Programming Module is a prerequisite to this module. The student must also be familiar with Windows®-type software.
Students learn to develop robot workcell simulations with MRC, XRC, and NX100 robot controllers.
This course consists of classroom lectures reinforced with demonstrations. Topics relate to real-world cell development and cycle time concerns. Students perform workshop exercises which emphasize lecture topics and can expect to spend a majority of their time in graphical cell development. Class size is kept small, typically six or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows students to work closely with Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of graphical offline programming and optional use of MotoPallet EG Software.
Students receive a copy of the MotoSim EG Training Manual which details the functions and operation of MotoSim. Additional handouts relate to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in workcell labs, and bring up specific offline programming issues
The MRC, XRC, or NX100 Basic Programming Module is a prerequisite to this module.
