The skill is categorized under the Future Skills group. Early competitions in Robot Systems Integration were held only at the regional and national levels, where industrial robotics specialists demonstrated their knowledge in the design of robotic complexes in the field of industrial automation.
FANUC engineers developed the terms of reference for this skill based on the WorldSkills international Standards Specifications, which allowed it to be brought to the world stage.
FANUC is a leader in the field of industrial automation, with 60 years of experience in the implementation of such systems. It has been conducting training to improve the qualifications of employees of industrial enterprises around the world to improve the efficiency and quality of technological processes.
Competition in Robot Systems Integration will be held using robots FANUC LR Mate 200iD. These are compact six-axis robots about the size and reach of a human arm. It combines best-in-class load carrying capacity, IP67 protection standard, and FANUC’s superb workmanship. As part of the competition test, participants will need to apply their knowledge in installing, launching, and programming the robot, as well as integrating peripheral equipment, including technical vision.
FANUC equipment will be used in a number of other skill competitions. ROBOSHOT electric injection moulding machines will be represented in Plastic Die Engineering.
