Universal Robots Workshop for New England Educators


In this hands-on workshop with the Universal Robots UR5e system, instructors learned how to use the collaborative robot. The e-series is a collaborative robot (cobot) designed for shops and lab spaces where people need to work in proximity to their production and testing systems. It's known as an easy-to-use and safe robot in manufacturing and for students. 

This workshop covered how to quickly program industry-standard applications like camera-driven pick-and-place, palletizing routines, force feedback, and more.

We partnered with Blue Hills Regional Technical School for this event!
