German Robot System Integration Championship 2022

December 12th, 2022 | by

Once again IGMR successfully participated in the German Championship (formerly the Olympics) in Robot System Integration at FANUC Germany!

This year’s task was the variable loading and palletising of boxes. In addition to the independent design of the entire cell, both real and virtual, the implementation also included the digital drawing of components, the setting of safety functions, error detection, user friendliness and instructions, as well as the integration of sensors, actuators and cameras.

Simon Strauch and Florian Menz competed under the team name IGMR, while Frederick van Kerkom and Sebastian Polzin took part as the RWTH team. They were accompanied by former participant Sophie Charlotte Keunecke as their coach.

The four students have been working independently with the FANUC Education Cell in the IGMR in their free time over the past few months, learning TP programming and simulation in RoboGuide. The effort was worth it!

Team IGMR presented a very impressive real and virtual Cell installation, implementing every menu option for customer convenience and error handling.

Team RWTH achieved the fastest lap times in both timings with 57 seconds and shone with a very detailed simulation and documentation. We are very proud of all four participants for their great performance!

A special thanks to FANUC Germany for the great implementation and the exceptional cooperation.

The FANUC Education Cell is an essential part of the practical teaching of robotics and offers students the opportunity to try out the handling of industrial robots and the use of frames (coordinate systems) and to carry out or verify their own experiments and measurements.

Programming courses with the FANUC Education Cell and RoboGuide

August 30th, 2022 | by

One of the key factors in working with robots at the IGMR is not only the theoretical consideration, calculation and optimisation of movement or mechanics, but in particular the practical work and handling of the systems, as well as the various programming tasks. The FANUC Education Cell is at the heart of this practical teaching, and is also an integral part of the Robotic Systems lecture and robotics courses at the International Academy. In addition to the lectures, the IGMR, represented by Carlo Weidemann, winner of the FANUC Olympiad 2020, also offers internal user courses for employees and gives them the opportunity to work independently on the cell.

Are you a student at the RWTH and interested in working with robots such as the FANUC LR Mate 200iD 4S or carrying out projects? Perhaps you have a concrete idea for a thesis involving the robot? Then please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Exercise with the Fanuc Education Cell in the module Robotic Systems

November 9th, 2020 | by

As part of the practical exercise of the Robotic Systems module the Fanuc Education Cell with the Roboguide software is used in our Robotic Lab.

The students learn the basic operation of a robotic cell and implement a logistics scenario by themselves using the Roboguide software. This semester we are also able to maintain the practical exercises remotely. For this purpose, teaching materials have been digitized so that students can simulate the task from their own computers.
