Professions in Industrial Robotics include automation based technicians, maintenance engineers or installation engineers. They install, test, programme or maintain robotic installations, reduce cycle times and the elimination of waste movement.
The competition has been designed to accommodate a range of participants with little to no knowledge of robotic systems, to robotics engineers. Stretch and challenge tasks have been incorporated to maximise a range of skills necessary to operate in a range of robotic engineering environments. Participants will be asked to complete tasks using FANUC’s virtual simulation software to create a work cell and design some of the components in the Passive stage along with the opportunity to take part in practical hands-on set-up and programming in the qualifier round.
Successful participants will then be invited to take part in the National Finals working with the FANUC education cell to complete a simulated manufacturing process.
