Mobile Training Lab By Marion Technical College
Robots.com has partnered with Marion Technical College to create Mobile Training Lab. This lab is intended to provide a flexible option for manufacturers to train employees or students without taking any systems offline. This Mobile Training Lab has computers, CNC, and a Fanuc robot that can properly help prepare the workers of the future for their automation jobs.
Robots.com has recently partnered with Marion Technical College on their Mobile Training Lab that provides industrial robotic teaching and training. Robots.com donated a Fanuc LR Mate 200iC robot with a R‑30iA controller for the mobile lab.
“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.
