Mobile Training Lab By Marion Technical College
RobotWorx has recently partnered with Marion Technical College on their Mobile Training Lab that provides industrial robotic teaching and training. RobotWorx donated a FANUC LR Mate 200iC robot with a R-30iA controller for the mobile lab.
“RobotWorx 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 RobotWorx 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 RobotWorx 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 RobotWorx, 10 student computer stations, an instructor station, projector, and more.
The FANUC LR Mate 200iC robot is positioned on the new RobotWorx 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.
RobotWorx 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.
