KR C4 Basics for Integrators KSS 8.x (KR C4)

Target Group
Robotprogrammer or Systemintegrators.
As part of this seminar, the participants are taught the basics of commissioning, operating and programming the KUKA robot system.
  • Vocational training in a technical job
  • In comparison to the "Robot programming 1" seminar, there is a greater focus on commissioning the robot system and configuring fieldbuses using the KUKA "WorkVisual" software.
  • In this course topics like robot programming, project management via WorkVisual, robot safety configuration, installation of additional software, disk image creation, bus configuration, I/O mapping, and further skills to successfully integrate the robotic system into production lines are trained.
