Introduction to Industrial Robotics 


To be invoiced for the cost of the course, please submit an enquiry with the course title as the subject line.


This introduction to Industrial Robotics course gives a general overview of the operation, programming, simulation, and commissioning of industrial robots. During this one-day introductory course, participants will gain valuable knowledge and experience in the world of industrial robotics, as they freely jog their own robot and model their own virtual robot cell.

1 day of in-person training (with another 4-day course to follow)


W8 Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim

Course Content 

This course is aimed at students and professionals in the manufacturing industry, providing them with an essential link to industrial robotic processes and technologies. Six-axis robots have been the industry standard for many processes including welding, painting, assembly, packaging , since the dawn of industry 3.0. Historically, this technology has been largely confined to high volume manufacturing processes, particularly in the automotive, electronics, and pharmaceutical industries.
In recent years however, the status quo has shifted towards automation in all industries, particularly since the advent of Industry 4.0. We are now seeing increasing demand for robotics and automation from all industries such as: 
  • Quarrying and mining; for packing and palletising heavy materials.
  • Small Tool-and-Die makers, for automatic workpiece and tool changes.
  • Logistics and postal companies; for automatic storage and retrieval and sorting.
  • Factories and Pharmaceutical Plants; for assembly, packaging and improving quality control. Pharmaceutical companies; for quality control.
  • Construction; for off-site manufacturing of modular homes and structural components.

The growing adoption of industrial robots has left a huge demand for robot operators, programmers, and integrators, while leaving a skills gap among factory fitters and engineers who may have the underlying skills to work with these kinds of systems, but still require the necessary training to service, commission, and operate these robots.

Who should attend? 

Anyone with an interest in the field of robotics and automation (Engineers, Mechanical/Electrical Fitters, Technicians, PLC Technicians, Students in any of the above fields)


Training Methods

Most of the training day will be hands-on and immersive, while an overview of the field of robotics theory will be taught. Participants will physically operate their own robot, program on the robot pendant, virtually model on our laptops and virtually commission on our VR headsets.
