Motoman launches new STEM platform for robotics education

Aug 2, 2013

Motoman robotics is expanding the ability for students to study robotics by providing opportunities to develop specific manufacturing skills. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is an imperative skill for kids today and so integrating robotics will be very beneficial across the board.


Like many of the oth­er major robot­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers, Motoman Robot­ics is inter­est­ed in expand­ing the abil­i­ty for stu­dents to study robot­ics. By pro­vid­ing these oppor­tu­ni­ties, stu­dents are ensured to devel­op skills that can be used in man­u­fac­tur­ing and oth­er tech­no­log­i­cal jobs.

The STEM (Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, Engi­neer­ing and Math­e­mat­ics) plat­form is at the fore­front of edu­ca­tion today. With the fast-paced, ever-chang­ing world of tech­nol­o­gy, stu­dents today need to learn abil­i­ties that can equip them for the work­place. Motoman wants to help.

Motoman announced recent­ly, accord­ing to a July 31 arti­cle from Robot­X­world, that it is mak­ing two new plat­forms avail­able for STEM edu­ca­tion – a gen­er­al-pur­pose plat­form and a weld­ing edu­ca­tion cell platform.

These plat­forms are able to help stu­dents prac­tice tech­nolo­gies at a high school and col­lege lev­el that are found in man­u­fac­tur­ing envi­ron­ments, the arti­cle stat­ed. With this kind of hands-on edu­ca­tion and train­ing avail­able, stu­dents are able to learn key skills required for the new robot­ic-dri­ven indus­tries of today.

One issue fac­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers now is the lack of skilled work­ers avail­able for high-tech jobs. As robot­ic man­u­fac­tur­ing moves for­ward, even more of these work­ers are going to be need­ed. The US Depart­ment of Labor esti­mates that the robot­ics engi­neer­ing field alone will rise up to 13 per­cent by 2018. Motoman’s STEM plat­form ensures that today’s youth will become tomorrow’s tech­ni­cians, design­ers and robot­ic engineers.

Robots​.com has a vest­ed inter­est in hands-on robot­ics train­ing at the high school, voca­tion­al and col­lege lev­el. Over the years, grad­u­ates from local robot­ics pro­grams have gone on to gain employ­ment in their home­town at the Robots​.com facil­i­ty in Mar­i­on, Ohio.

Robots​.com car­ries a vast array of robot­ic mod­els for weld­ing, mate­r­i­al han­dling and mate­r­i­al removal, along with sev­er­al oth­er appli­ca­tions. Our robots are ready for pur­chase and cus­tomiza­tion today. For more infor­ma­tion about automat­ing with Robots​.com, con­tact us online or at 8777626881.
