OnRobot, a provider of tools
for collaborative robot applications, launched Learn OnRobot, a free online training platform. Learn guides users,
step-by-step, through the process of designing and deploying cobot applications
featuring OnRobot tools such as grippers, vision cameras, processing kits, and sensors
in setups with all major cobot and light industrial robot brands.
Support is localized and
features nine languages. Learn OnRobot’s library of ‘How To’ videos and 3D
simulations provides detailed information on collaborative applications,
including machine tending, palletizing, pick & place, and sanding. The
platform is accessible via PCs, smartphones, and tablets, enabling easy access
to Learn OnRobot resources from the shop floor. Learn OnRobot also
mitigates labor shortages by enabling fast and effective collaborative
automation deployments so companies can respond quickly to labor conditions.
“OnRobot’s solutions break down
the barriers to automation adoption by making affordable, industry ready,
easy-to-use technologies available to companies of all sizes,” says Enrico Krog
Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “Learn OnRobot continues this democratizing,
barrier-busting tradition by making collaborative application know-how freely
available to anyone with an internet connection, from prospective customers
curious about our offerings, to partners, to integrators, and to end users of
all skill levels looking to maximize the success of their automation
The easy-to-navigate Learn OnRobot platform has three main sections, organized to help visitors get straight to the information they need:
• ‘Application’ provides overviews of different collaborative applications, including best practices, specifics of successful application deployments.
• ‘Product’ provides guidance on the OnRobot tools best suited to each collaborative application, integration tips and insights.
• ‘Robot Integration’
shows how to integrate the application with the robot arm, featuring separate
tutorials for each supported brand of robot arms.
Stefan Stubgaard, Director of Application Research & Product Management at OnRobot, led the development of the new learning platform and sees Learn OnRobot as the easiest and most effective way to deploy industry-grade collaborative automation. “Learn OnRobot is designed to help answer integration questions and overcome deployment challenges,” he says. “The new platform is high on simplicity and usability. Using Learn OnRobot as their guide, integrators and end-users of all skill levels can make the most of their collaborative automation deployments.”
