Employers in every region are demanding that welding educators deliver prospective employees prepared to work with advanced technologies like robotic welding and programming. Lincoln Electric’s new ClassMate Robotic Trainer provides welding educators with a complete advanced manufacturing solution for robotic welding training, demonstration and recruiting at every level, including community and technical colleges, trade schools and workforce development programs.

The ClassMate robotic cell features a compact robotic arm from FANUC Robotics, the most popular robot manufacturer in the United States. The classroom-ready system comes with everything needed to get started including instructor training, curriculum, a fully functional welding power source, integrated fume control and safety equipment, and a large expandable surface that easily sets up in seconds.

The cell comes with more than a dozen complete project curricula designed to encourage active inquiry, higher-level thinking and easy integration into advanced manufacturing education programs. Each lesson provides learning activities, step-by-step instructions and discussion questions. Purchasers also enjoy access to Lincoln Electric’s Train-the-Trainer Program, including curriculum and safety materials, as well as a basic robotic training course or up to three instructors.

Designed to fit through a standard doorway, the ClassMate cell allows instructors to teach robotic programming concepts in the classroomusing common 120V input power and quickly move to the lab for hands-on welding practice. Using available WeldPRO® software, students can perform offline programming and then test their skills on the manufacturing-ready robotic cell.

An optional patent-pending robotic 3-in-1 welding fixture allows students to practice a number of industry-standard weld joint configurations.
