APT Features

This trainer was developed by APT Manufacturing, Rockwell Automation, and FANUC America. We wanted an industrial system that students at all levels can learn from. The beginner can learn panel build and basic ladder program and the advance can write their own programs and integrate with an existing Robot.

FANUC features

This trainer can be used with a FANUC CERT Cart or FANUC Robot.

FANUC Fenceless CERT

This is designed to integrate and operate the Robot from a PLC. Integration is vital for students to understand and learn how to operate the Robot.
