Learn OnRobot includes tutorials and 3D simulations of the most popular applications for cobots such as machine tending, palletizing, pick and place, and sanding.
OnRobot aims to ease the design and deployment of common collaborative robot applications using its tooling by offering the free Learn OnRobot Web-based training platform.

Before collaborative robots can democratize automation by making it easier for small and midsize companies to use, workers need to gain experience in automating tasks. OnRobot A/S today said it has launched Learn OnRobot, a free online training platform that guides users through the process of designing and deploying cobot applications.

“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, to integrators, and to end users of all skill levels looking to maximize the success of their automation deployment.”

Odense, Denmark-based OnRobot makes all-electric tools that don't require pneumatics. They include vacuum and magnetic grippers, the bio-inspired Gecko gripping technology, force/torque sensors, a 2.5D vision, robotic screwdrivers, sanding kits, and tool changers.

The company said it serves applications such as packaging, quality control, and materials handling, as well as machine tending, assembly, and surface finishing.

Learn OnRobot designed for easy reference

Learn OnRobot provides step-by-step guidance for tasks using the company's grippers, vision cameras, processing kits, and sensors in setups with all major cobot and light industrial robot brands, said OnRobot.

Localized with support in nine languages, the platform includes an extensive library of “How To” videos and 3D simulations with detailed information on collaborative applications, including machine tending, palletizing, pick and place, and sanding.

Learn OnRobot is accessible via PCs, smartphones, and tablets for easy access to resources from the shop floor during the deployment process, said OnRobot.

Learn OnRobot platform is designed to be easy to navigate and has three main sections:

  • The Application section provides overviews of different collaborative applications, including best practices and deep dives into the specifics of successful deployments.
  • The Product section provides guidance on the OnRobot tools best suited to each 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 arms.

OnRobot wants to help robotics deployments

OnRobot claimed that its free offering can enable fast robotics deployments, empowering companies to respond quickly to challenging labor conditions.

Stefan Stubgaard, director of application research and product management at OnRobot, led the development of the new learning platform. He said that Learn OnRobot is a great way for his company to pay the community back for many years of insightful conversations about the easiest and most effective ways to deploy automation.

“Learn OnRobot is designed to help answer integration questions and overcome deployment challenges,” said Stubgaard. “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.”

As OnRobot expands its line of tools, more resources will be added to the Learn OnRobot platform, ensuring a continuous learning experience across all OnRobot products, he added.

The Learn OnRobot platform is complemented by OnRobot’s free, two-day training courses held monthly in OnRobot’s office in Dallas. Learn OnRobot is available free worldwide from the OnRobot website.

Yokoyama Kogyo is a Japanese manufacturer of car seat frames and various automobile parts. Challenged by the labor shortage, Yokoyama deployed collaborative automation, combining OnRobot RG2 Gripper and AUBO Cobot. Automation has delivered 35% cost savings, eliminating inefficiencies while improving the work environment for employees.
