Robotics training for schools and universities

All the core robot skills contained in a dedicated robotics package

At FANUC, we're passionate about automation. Contributing massively to manufacturing efficiencies, automated solutions drive productivity, enhance quality and minimise costs.

Given the exciting future facing the industry, we are also passionate about education. That’s why we have put together different FANUC educational packages depending on your needs.

FANUC’s existing educational cell, featuring a standard FANUC ER-4iA industrial robot, continues to prove highly popular. Adding a new option to this offer, the FANUC CRX educational cell with a collaborative robot will allow schools, colleges, universities, training centres and OEM training facilities to offer learners a choice of automation concepts.

Designed with students in mind, these all-in-one robotics-training bundles enable young people to gain first-hand experience of programming and operating cutting-edge industrial or collaborative robots. Package contents are highly relevant for modern factory applications and contain everything instructors require to teach students to program and operate robots.
