Computerized Manufacturing and Robotics Course Descriptions

COM107- Robotic Manufacturing Cell Operations

This course provides an overview of robot classifications and types of control for manipulators. Topics include CNC robot applications, basics of robotic actuators and sensors, visual systems, motion planning, task modeling, human-machine interface, and motion and gripping processes. Weekly laboratories provide experience with powering up and jogging the robot; recovery from common program and robot faults, production operations execution, CNC cell program modification and execution, programs and files backup and restoration in a group-based term project. This course is an introduction to robotics and how robots communicate with CNC machines. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify robotic system units in CNC manufacturing and perform basic robotic manipulations that are necessary to operate and edit programs in the Fanuc robotics handling tool software.

Prerequisites: ABM 100 and COM 100



COM207- Robotic Manufacturing Cell Advanced Operations

This course provides an overview of integrating vision systems, tool handling operations, and programming with Fanuc Robotics simulation software. Students will learn CNC machine tool-robot integration. Instruction will utilize robot integrated vision systems with iRVision applications and R-30iA robot controller, FANUC Robotics HandlingPRO Software operations, and programming. Each week, students will use BIR’s Computerized Manufacturing Lab equipped with the latest technology such as FANUC LR Mate 200iC educational robot, robot applications iRVision-2D-R30iA, integrated vision systems, and computer and lectures with FANUC Robotics HandlingPRO software. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify robotic vision system solutions in CNC manufacturing, program basic iRVision-2D-R30iA vision solutions, and create programs in the FANUC Robotics HandlingPRO Software Package.

Prerequisites: COM 107 and COM 115
