OnRobot Debuts Online Learning Platform to Deploy Cobot Apps


October 28, 2021

OnRobot, which develops tools for collaborative robot applications, has launched Learn OnRobot, a free online training platform that gives step-by-step directions through the process of designing and deploying cobot applications with tools such as grippers, vision cameras, processing kits, and sensors. The system works with all major cobot and light industrial robot brands and supports nine languages.

The platform includes a library of simple and direct “How To” videos and 3D simulations that give detailed information on cobot applications, including machine tending, palletizing, pick and place, and sanding. The platform can be accessed via PCs, smartphones and tablets, which allows users to use the platform while on a shop floor during the deployment process. The company said Learn OnRobot can mitigate labor shortages by enabling faster and more effective cobot automation deployments, empowering companies to quickly respond to challenging labor conditions.

“OnRobot’s solutions break down the barriers to automation adoption by making affordable, industry-ready, easy-to-use technologies available to companies of all sizes,” said Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “Learn OnRobot continues this democratizing, barrier-busting tradition by making collaborative application know-how freely available to anyone with an Internet connection, from prospective customers curious about our offerings, to partners, integrators and end users of all skill levels looking to maximize the success of their automation deployment.”

The platform includes three main sections that are organized to help users get straight to the information they need. The “Application” section gives overviews of different collaborative applications, including best practices and deep dives into the specifics of successful deployments. The “Product” section gives guidance on the OnRobot tool or tools best suited to each collaborative application, along with integration tips and insights. The “Robot integration” section shows how to integrate the application with the robot arm, featuring separate tutorials for each supported brand of robot arm.

“Learn OnRobot is designed to help answer integration questions and overcome deployment challenges,” said Stefan Stubgaard, director of application research and product management at OnRobot. “The new platform is high on simplicity and usability. Using Learn OnRobot as their guide, integrators and end users of all skill levels can make the most of their collaborative automation deployments.

The company said it will add more resources as OnRobot expands its line of tools to ensure a continuous learning experience across all of its products. The platform is also complemented by OnRobot’s free, two-day training courses, which are held monthly at the company’s Dallas, Texas office.
