ROBOT PROGRAMMERS ARE TIMING ORIENTED AND EXTREMELY FOCUSED
AID IN DESIGN
As a robotic programmer you may be asked to assist a customer with the design of a robotic cell, and you will need to understand each robots work envelop and manufacturing prints.
Understanding the movements of the robot is critical so pre-installation simulations can be created and code can be written and tested prior to launch.
After installation is completed and software is downloaded, robot paths must be created, and points touched-up according to customer specifications.
It is absolutely critical that the robots do not crash, so setting up interference zones will help keep your customers equipment safe.
The goal of every robot is to be as efficient as possible and it’s your job to get it there.
Contract robot programmers may have to train the customers robot technicians or maintenance staff.
