Advanced Manufacturing CERT Cell (AM-CERT)

The AM-CERT is an adaptable robot training cell that will teach level 1, 2, and 3 FANUC CERT curriculum. This is real-world manufacturing for your school.

The AM-CERT Cell utilizes a FANUC M10 or M20 robot with communication to a PLC. To accommodate limited space requirements, this cell folds up in a compact footprint of 54″ wide by 72″ deep, and then expands into a 10’ x 10’ manufacturing work cell giving ample area for conveyors, palletizing, or pick and place activities. The opportunities for training are endless with the AM-CERT!

You can use this equipment to teach FANUC level 1 Robot Tool Handling or Level 2 Advanced iRVision curriculum. This system also comes with our project based curriculum, teaching integration and problem solving skills exactly like the students will see upon graduation in a manufacturing environment. 

This equipment features multiple end-of-arm-tooling options, full-sized FANUC R30iB robot controller platform, complete integration to Rockwell Automation CompactLogix PLC using Studio 5000 based programming, a Rockwell PanelView Plus 10” interface touch screen, and advanced safety training features like safety interlock switches and light curtain, or area scanner fully integrated into the robot and PLC safety circuit. The cell is ready for the optional conveyor to supply parts to the robot or away from the robot to outside the safety fencing.

Students will have a hands-on experience with standard industrial components they are most likely to see in real manufacturing environments. Learn robot program calls from a PLC based on decisions. test I/O, motor operation, safety inputs, and vision guided robotics.

This equipment, combined with FANUC CERT curriculum and the advanced project based curriculum, is the most advanced and versatile robot training platform on the market.
