ABB Robotics launches new Educational Package

2011-07-19 - To help equip the engineers of tomorrow with the skills needed for a robotic future, ABB is offering schools, colleges and universities a new robotic package, designed to demonstrate and teach real-life industrial robot concepts in the classroom.

Based around ABB’s smallest ever robot IRB 120, and its compact robot controller, the package enables students to increase their awareness and understanding of the principles and operation of real industrial robots used in modern manufacturing applications.

Utilizing the same technology used throughout industry, ABB’s educational package gives students hands-on experience and an opportunity to learn the skills needed for effective use and management of modern robotic manufacturing systems.

ABB’s robotic package for education is designed to give students an insight into:

  • How industrial robots are programmed and operated
  • The design and control principles of industrial robots
  • The design and control principles of robot work cells
  • Programming ABB robots using the off-line programming software, RobotStudio
  • Robotic cell hazards, health and safety and maintenance requirements

Learning with robots
With ABB’s robotic packages for education, schools, colleges and universities get the latest in automation software and robotic technologies, including:

The IRB 120 robot features a light, aluminium structure. Weighing just 25kg, it is not only easily portable but is ideal where space is at a premium in classrooms or practical work areas.

The IRC5 Compact controller is a world-leading dedicated robot controller and transforms off-line programming into on-line performance. Featuring sophisticated motion control technology, the controller ensures the routines programmed into RobotStudio are mirrored on the actual robot.

ABB’s simulation and off-line programming software, RobotStudio, enables students to prepare realistic simulations of real-life robotic applications. The education package includes 50 floating user licences, enabling 50 simultaneous users at any one time.

There is also a cost-effective optional software bundle available containing 13 additional software functions including SoftMove, Multitasking and Collision Detection functions.

The ABB Robotics Educational Package is fully supported by the ABB Robotics global sales and service organization in 53 countries and over 100 locations
