Robotics for Education
AYVA has partnered with KUKA (Germany) to provide industrial robotics training designed specifically for teaching labs. This can take the form of ready-to-use industry-standard training cells or individually configured components for your own solutions.
KUKA's ready2_educate training cells are ideal for hands-on education in robotics - the cells are portable and fit easily through a classroom door.
Choose from 3 different package options to integrate robot training into your programs. The basic package includes a 3-axis industrial robot with a gripper to pick and place the included cubes. The pro package adds onto the basic with a heavy-duty application gripper and comprehensive curriculum with a variety of experiments designed for use with the included application hardware. The advanced package includes everything in the pro plus a plc with a touchpad for more advanced programming.
KUKA's SimPro simulation software is popular with both colleges and universities, it can be added to any of the ready2_educate packages and includes 15 seats. Instructor Certification is also available from KUKA College.
Not only is KUKA Robotics the number one robot manufacturer in Europe, they are the robot of choice for many North American industry leaders, such as Tesla (auto), Boeing (aero), Disney (entertainment), and the only industrial robot in the operating room!
KUKA’s open architecture gives users as much freedom as they want. Delve into the Windows 7 OS to access and modify software or dive deeper into the real-time controller using KUKA’s unique Robot Sensor Interface (RSI).
Three Machine Languages. In addition to its own robot language KRL, and 25 spoken languages, the KR C4 also understands the language of the CNC machining world (G-code) and the language of PLCs, enabling you to control it with your SIEMENS® or Rockwell® controller without additional hardware.
"We have recently acquired six KUKA robots for our Controls and Robotics Lab at the University of Toronto. Not only we are very impressed with the quality and performance of the units, but we are also very pleased with the level of service and professionalism we encountered from AYVA. They have provided a continuous channel through which we could interface with KUKA and fulfill our technical demands from the time of procurement, through to installation, training of personnel and commissioning. It has been a textbook case on how to support laboratory work in higher education."
