Maintaining Company Integrity with Robot Training

Jun 15, 2014

When you are looking to integrate an automation system onto your production line, it is important to properly train all of the robot technicians. Proper robot training helps to ensure the integrity and safety of the shop, while also helping to keep the production line efficient. is proud to offer robot training after a robotic purchase.


Train­ing is prob­a­bly one of the most impor­tant issues for work­ers when it comes to inte­grat­ing robot­ics into a facil­i­ty. While train­ing is one way to bet­ter the skills of many work­ers dur­ing the inte­gra­tion, it is also nec­es­sary to make sure that the integri­ty and safe­ty of the shop remains intact dur­ing the inte­gra­tion process.

While there used to be a strong work force for the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try, in recent decades, work­ers have moved to ser­vice or office job, which shifts peo­ple away from being qual­i­fied for man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs. The robot­ics indus­try has been key in reju­ve­nat­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing work­force, by offer­ing to train the work­ers in robot­ics – which gives them more mar­ketable skills than they would ever gain through just a weld­ing or han­dling job. This not only boosts morale, but also improves the lives of work­ers by allow­ing them to have skills that can improve their rate of pay.

Anoth­er rea­son robot train­ing is so impor­tant in a facil­i­ty is the safe­ty aspect. Robots can be a worker’s best friend, or their worst ene­my, espe­cial­ly if that work­er has no safe­ty train­ing with that par­tic­u­lar robot. Robots have the abil­i­ty to move with enough speed and force to kill a per­son. When work­ers receive safe­ty train­ing about robots, they should learn all of the safe­ty com­po­nents around the robot, like light cur­tains, mats and fenc­ing. They should also be alert­ed to the walk­ways which have been specif­i­cal­ly marked to keep work­ers away from robots dur­ing oper­a­tion. By pro­vid­ing this train­ing, work­ers are able to avoid injuries, which could low­er morale and cause slow­downs, cost­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers mon­ey, in the long run.
