LEPS (LEONI Engineering Products & Services) Robotic Training for E-Commerce Company Improves Warehouse Automation
Toward More Efficient Installation
A major e-commerce company looking for specialized robotic training recently completed its first custom training with LEPS engineers. The company utilizes robotic cells that scan package barcodes and help move packages along for distribution within the warehouse. The company’s robotic engineers are heavily involved in the deployment of these automated robotic cells, which go through a system validation and testing process.
To improve robotic operations, LEPS developed a four-day, system-level training program that allows company engineers to more efficiently set up and optimize robotic cells across all warehouse distribution centers. “In essence, the company brought in LEONI to leverage our specialized expertise in robot system design, integration, and maintenance,” said Darrell Cope, training sales expert and key account manager for LEPS.
Four-Day Custom Program
Courses were designed according to the customer’s specific application. They covered safe operation of the robot cell, robotic programming and workflow, and principles of input/output communication and manipulation. In addition, the training included a hardware overview, covering the robot cabinet and controller, physical connections, reaching payload, and end-of-arm tooling. The training also covered safe I/O devices, dual check safety, and software safety, and included an overview of cell and robot operations.
Due to the success of the training, the company’s engineers can now more efficiently set up and optimize automated robotic cells at multiple warehouse locations. “After the completion of the first training program, the company is now seeking a comprehensive robotic safety curriculum from LEONI, which will include yearly certification and testing,” said Cope.
