New Training System Equips Workforce With Advanced Manufacturing Robotic Skills

ClevelandLincoln Electric introduces an enhanced Robotic Welding Education Cell 2.0 for use in schools, colleges and private manufacturing training centers. The compact new robotic cell is intended to help the manufacturing industry respond to a critical shortage of skilled labor. Training available workers on advanced automated welding delivers the productivity and quality the U.S. manufacturing industry must have to remain successfully competitive.

For instructors and students, the new cell provides access to robotic technology and advanced training, allowing students to develop skills that meet the needs of the industry’s developing manufacturing environment.  The mobile nature of the Education Cell, including a collapsible work space, allows it to be used as a training tool in multiple classrooms and welding labs. It also can be easily transported to recruiting events to attract students.

"The future of manufacturing lies in motivating students to consider science, technology, engineering and math careers," said Deanna Postlethwaite, marketing manager, Lincoln Electric Automation Solutions. "The enhanced Robotic Welding Education Cell is a key to addressing these educational targets and building a workforce with the right skills for manufacturing.  The robotic system design caters to industrial, welding education and robotic training needs.”

The Robotic Education Cell Program gives students a foundation in robotic welding basics, as well as more sophisticated technologies, preparing them to succeed in industries ranging from building and fabrication to automotive, transportation, and structural steel.  The welding cell supplements coursework in any math or science-based curriculum, including CAD, electronics, machining, and computer science and information technology.
