XRC Basic Programming
This course runs 4 days, Mon - Thurs 8:30am to 3:45pm
Who Should Attend
The XRC Basic Programming Course is an introductory course to the XRC Controller and programming of the Yaskawa Motoman® SK-X and UP-Series industrial robots. No prior knowledge of robot programming or of the XRC Controller is required.
The training module consists of classroom lectures in which Yaskawa Motoman instructors present course material consisting of programming commands, reinforced with demonstrations. The commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Students enhance the materials covered in the lectures with actual hands-on programming in the Yaskawa Motoman Canada Ltd. 2400 square foot demonstration and training laboratory. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises including actual programming to emphasize commands covered in class lectures. Classes are kept small in size, typically 12 or fewer students, in order to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows the students to work with each other and YMC instructors in order to grasp the concepts of operating a robot.
Students receive a copy of the XRC Basic Programming manual which details commands and programming techniques for the Yaskawa Motoman® XRC Controller. Additional handouts are provided relating to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions and to bring up specific programming issues.
Yaskawa instructors cover topics which enable the students to manipulate the robot, create robot programs and modify existing programs. An overview of the primary topics covered in the course is provided below: - Robot Safety - Fault Recovery - System Power Up/Down - Programming Pendant - Coordinate Systems - Path Editing - Cut/Paste Functions - Arithmetic Variables - Position Levels - I/O & Control Instructions - User Frames - Job Functions - Speed Correction - Tool Centre Point (TCP)
