Purpose-built academy at Ansty ParkFactory-automation specialist Fanuc (www.fanuc.eu) is launching a purpose-built training academy at its new 107,000ft2 facility in Ansty Park, Coventry.

The academy — more than four-times the size of Fanuc’s previous facility at the Seven Stars Industrial Estate — includes brand-new equipment worth more than £300,000 and will allow students to receive practical training in a safe and controlled environment.

The academy has eight cells of Fanuc M-20 and M-10 robots, as well as a Robocut, a Robodrill and a Roboshot machine.

Each machine operates at teach speed and is equipped with the latest touch-screen pendant and human-machine interface technology. There are also two robots that can be stripped down and rebuilt for maintenance training.

The basic introductory course, which lasts for around five days, allows students to learn the fundamentals of machine operation, from basic safety protocols to programming and control.

The academy also offers advanced courses and maintenance courses, as well as bespoke programmes. Applications are accepted from both experienced and first-time users of automated machinery.

Be seen in all the right places!
