Robots​.com is proud to sup­port local pro­grams like MTC and Job­sO­hio. We are delight­ed to be a part of a town like Mar­i­on that has exhib­it­ed such a strong pas­sion in assist­ing the work­force solu­tions for today’s skilled tech­ni­cal jobs,” stat­ed Jacque­line Dick­son, human resources and admin­is­tra­tive assis­tant with Robots​.com in Marion.

Jodi Ben­nett, an engi­neer­ing grad­u­ate from Mar­i­on Tech­ni­cal Col­lege, designed the robot train­ing cart and took part in the offi­cial han­dover cer­e­mo­ny. It’s great work­ing for a com­pa­ny that sees the impor­tance of invest­ing in edu­ca­tion. I’m proud to be a part of giv­ing back to MTC.”

Mar­i­on Tech­ni­cal Col­lege (MTC) offers a wide range of robot­ic pro­grams and con­tin­ues to build a strong pres­ence in the mid-west, build­ing part­ner­ships with Robots​.com and RAMTEC to con­tin­ue to find ways to help teach the stu­dents of tomorrow’s workforce.

This on-going col­lab­o­ra­tion is impor­tant for the con­nec­tion of indus­tri­al robots to the upcom­ing gen­er­a­tion as seen with their new mobile lab that pro­vides flex­i­ble, on-the-go train­ing to local man­u­fac­tur­ers so a site doesn’t have to take equip­ment offline. This mobile lab is aimed to help local employ­ers improve their work­er’s skills for career advance­ment; it can reach hun­dreds of work­ers each year through­out Cen­tral Ohio.

This Mobile Train­ing Lab, which can be used as a mobile lab or on cam­pus in a class­room, is a 400-square foot sim­u­la­tion cen­ter that can accom­mo­date up to eight stu­dents, each with a lap­top and oth­er train­ing equip­ment. It includes a CNC mill, the robot from Robots​.com, 10 stu­dent com­put­er sta­tions, an instruc­tor sta­tion, pro­jec­tor, and more. 

The Fanuc LR Mate 200iC robot is posi­tioned on the new Robots​.com E5000 edu­ca­tion­al fence­less cart that has a SICK safe­ty scan­ner. This cart was built with edu­ca­tion in mind; it has col­lapsi­ble sides to help make trav­el from class­room to class­room more convenient.

Robots​.com is excit­ed for future part­ner­ships like this; we take pride in our com­mu­ni­ty out­reach and are always look­ing for oppor­tu­ni­ties to offer con­tin­ued sup­port for the edu­ca­tion of indus­tri­al robots to the ris­ing gen­er­a­tions.
