The Seminar on Role of Automation in Packaging Industry
A seminar on Role of Automation in Packaging Industry was organized by the Department of Robotics Engineering on 29th January 2020. The Resource Person, Mr. I. Karthikeyan, Project Lead, Spark Drives and Automation, Coimbatore, gave an insight on the need for Automation in Packaging and the different sensors and devices used in automation. He also had interactive sessions with the participants and discussed about the possibilities of internships and industrial projects for the students.
The seminar was greatly beneficial to the students and they attained a practical knowledge on the application of sensors and automation in real time industrial applications.
The students of II B. Tech Robotics and Automation had the opportunity to visit the Yaskawa Robot Facility at AGIIT, Coimbatore. The team comprised of 30 students accompanied by two faculty members, Dr. P. Annatha Christu raj and Dr. L. D. Vijay Anand. The students were given hands on training on the GP-12 Yaskawa robot.
The Visit started with an Orientation Session on the basics of robots that was handled by ___ from AGIIT. Later, the team was taken to the robot factroy where the working of the robot was demonstrated and hands-on-training was also provided to teahc the robot the path to be followed using the teach pendant. As students were already enlightened about the simulation software (Robostudio ABB 12.1.2/MotoSimEG4.0) in their previous workshops held in college, it was easy to identify the working of the robot.
