ABB Robot Education Package

Oct 31, 2013

It is important for the upcoming generation of students to understand industrial robots and be able to operate them. Industrial robots will soon be seen in almost all businesses as companies are quickly realizing their benefits. That is why ABB has created the Robot Education Package for students.


ABB designed a new robot­ic pack­aged to demon­strate and teach real-life indus­tri­al robot con­cepts in the class­room. In 2011, ABB began offer­ing schools, col­leges, and uni­ver­si­ties this edu­ca­tion­al pack­age to help equip the engi­neers of the future with the nec­es­sary skills for a robot­ic career.

The pack­age is based around ABB’s IRB 120 and its com­pact robot con­troller. The pro­gram will increase stu­dents’ aware­ness and under­stand­ing of the oper­a­tion of indus­tri­al robots used in man­u­fac­tur­ing applications.

Stu­dents will get hands-on expe­ri­ence with insight into how indus­tri­al robots are pro­grammed and oper­at­ed. They will actu­al­ly be able to use the off-line pro­gram­ming soft­ware Robot­Stu­dio. They will also learn about the design and con­trol prin­ci­ples of robot work cells, and will learn about the haz­ards of robot cells.

In 2010, ABB linked up with Fox Val­ley Tech­ni­cal Col­lege in an agree­ment for the col­lege to pro­vide cer­ti­fied train­ing. Only three oth­er col­leges in the nation are ABB Robot­ics cer­ti­fied. ABB pro­vides the col­lege with a state-of-the-art lab that includes sev­en ABB robots with relat­ed soft­ware and con­trollers. The col­lege is able to offer the train­ing to employ­ers and equip­ment for learn­ing for the stu­dents. Hav­ing access to the robots dur­ing their edu­ca­tion enables the stu­dents enrolled at the col­lege to have a guar­an­teed job upon graduation.
