In February 2020 Allied Automation announced the opening of our Universal Robots Certified Traning Center. We are proud to announce that we have 5 applications engineers in house who have their UR Advanced Class Certification, allowing us to offer advanced UR training courses.
“Our Certified Universal Robot Training program and our 5 in house UR Advanced Class Certified
applications engineers are important additions to our Advanced
Manufacturing Automation Training Center in Indianapolis and our extensions in Dayton, Ohio and
Louisville, Kentucky. This reflects Allied Automation’s commitment to keeping manufacturing local for
the benefit of our local communities by helping manufacturers migrate efficiently and cost-effectively
toward leading-edge manufacturing technologies, product upgrades and intelligent solutions” said Greg
Dill, President of Allied Automation. “Through our products and application knowledge and our
advanced design team consulting and training, manufacturers can quickly acquire and sustain
enhancements in performance, reliability and information connectivity that are critical to an advanced
and lean production environment.”

UR Certified Core
After the 2-day course, you will have hands-on experience with a UR robot. You will have programmed the robot several times to perform common tasks, including the operation of common peripherals (conveyors, sensors, grippers). You will be able to optimize a pick and place flow, perform palletization, understand safety concepts, and know the additional resources available to them both online and through other training courses. You will be ready to return to your own robot and create pick and place, palletization, and other common application programs on your own.
Please note that you must have completed the Online Core Training to be able to sign up for the In-class Core Training. Also note, this Core Training is the pre-requisite for the Advanced Training.
UR Certified Advanced
When you complete the Advanced course, you will be able to fully understand and utilize all commands in the Universal Robots “User Interface”. You will also be able to better optimize your application and reduce the number of waypoints used by utilizing variable waypoints and user defined features. The latter feature can assist you to align the movement of the robot to the installation or environment. Conveyor tracking and advanced force control will also be explored in this training course. This course enables every developer to deploy applications that account for more environmental variables.
