LiNKX’s Collaborative Robots Implementation Practical Training Service (“this service” from now on) aims to groom your staff to be able to think independently, take the lead of external subcontractors, and devise concrete automation system frameworks on their own. This service is aimed at companies who want to increase productivity by introducing cobots into their workspace.
Multiple core technologies such as cameras, sensors, grippers, peripheral devices and software are required in addition to robots to implement automation systems using cobots. Many companies do not have sufficient internal experience regarding all the required core technologies, and they end up subcontracting the entire implementation of the system to an external subcontractor.
However, relying on external subcontractors leads to problems. For example, external subcontractors might not fully understand the full details of your company’s workflow. Inconsistencies in perceptions due to differences in the presumptions by you and the external subcontractor are not uncommon. All these factors ultimately lead to the deterioration in product quality, delays in product delivery and increased costs, and your company’s productivity does not increase as an end result.
In order to avoid this, your company staff need to become experts in on-site work as well as the various core technologies required for automation. They must be able to think independently, be able to take the lead of external subcontractors, and be able to devise concrete automation system frameworks without relying on external help. This service aims to train your staff with the required skills and know-how to do so.
This training service aims to provide you and your staff with a stronger and more concrete grasp of the issues regarding the implementation of automation systems through practical sessions. We developed this training service using our extensive experience in implementing cobots and automation systems in factories, distribution warehouses and research laboratories. By the end of the training, you and your staff should be able to directly apply what you have learnt to your company’s work environment.
Core competencies covered:
Example case study: packing loose items into boxes with cobots.
Company staff without the appropriate skills might attempt to get an external subcontractor to install a camera based system onto the current workflow in order to use cobots to effectively pack loose items into boxes. This however is not necessarily the best solution.
With training, company staff with the appropriate skills will realize that a camera based system is too complex with multiple points of failure, and that the cobot workflow can be realized using an appropriately designed feeder and gripper system.
The entire training curriculum is scheduled for one 4 hour training session every week for a total of 4 weeks. In order to firmly establish the required skills and knowledge, during each session you will learn about various topics on automation as preparatory work, and then experience those topics hands-on in a workshop. Additionally, by providing us with a list of your company’s operations that are currently being considered for automation, we will be better able to structure a more specific lesson plan catered to your needs.
150,000 JPY/participant for 4 sessions. Minimum of 3 participants for sessions to begin.
