A Sneak Peek at the Learning Path

Following a quick introduction and the course overview, we will take our first look at the Yaskawa YRC1000micro robot controller, and the Smart Pendant. Start up and shut down procedures. Emergency stop sequence.  Jogging Basics and Coordinate systems introduction. 

2 hours to complete

After a quick Lesson 1 Quiz, we will take an in-depth look at Alarms, Errors, Home Position, and Job Creation steps.

2 hours to complete

Another quiz to cover the new knowledge we gained in lesson 2. Then we learn the Path Creation procedures. This lesson includes our first practical assignment – the Drawing Lab where you will put your new skills to the test. Do you think you can draw a heart with the help of a robot? 

2 hours to complete

We are taking it from where we left the Drawing Lab in the previous class. This entire session is going to be very hands-on: by learning to make circular and spline moves we finally are able to complete the drawing. Great job! 

2 hours to complete

It is time for another quiz – this time covering our entire first day of the study. Then we go full speed into more advanced path, job, and speed editing, confirmation, and playback.
