Robotics Training Academy Launched

CNC Robotics Training Academy

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Training Academy the first of its kind in the North West focusing exclusively on robotics for manufacturing.

Robotic technology is significantly and positively changing the way we work and live, the future success across all industries will be defined by the ability of UK firms to adapt their infrastructure and exploit related technologies. To that end we have established a training academy to train the next generation of robotic machining and advanced processing engineers to drive productivity and jobs across the UK’s manufacturing base. Upskilling your workforce has never been more important to give your business a competitive edge.

 All economists agree that automation changes across industries will be of a scale and scope that is unprecedented. Across manufacturing, the UK continues to fall well behind other major nations in terms of output. Why?  Because historically only large companies have embedded automation into their production processes whilst SMEs account for 70% of manufacturers. The low adoption rate for installing industrial robots in small UK businesses means productivity has been limited to the increase in human resources. According to the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA), there are just 71 robots per 10,000 employees in the UK, versus 189 in USA, 309 in Germany and 631 in Korea. Currently, the UK has the lowest density of robots to employees in the EU. With more machines anticipated to be deployed in British industry over the coming years, the demand for qualified engineers able to work closely with the next generation of robotics is set to grow. These technological changes mean that targeted training and educating your people in the right skills is more important than ever to remain ahead of your competition. 

Here at the Robotics Training Academy we are passionate about robotic systems, all of our courses are designed for companies to get the most out of their automation investment and we offer a wide range of training programmes to meet any manufacturers training needs. Our courses are aimed at students, machine operators, programmers and designers who need either introductory, intermediate or advanced training to get the best out of their systems. 

We believe in using real environments for our training and our courses combine classroom training with practical workshop exercises on state of the art robotic systems and using the latest technology. The training is aimed at small groups and provide a hands on learning experience with every attendee receiving a complete training manual to take away.

As MTA members training grants are on offer through MTA to help with the development of your workforce. If you have been a MTA member for over 12 months, then up to 50% of our course fees can be covered through the MTA grant scheme. 

To learn more about increasing productivity and upskilling your staff, call one of our trainers today on 0151 523 8009 or visit our website have a wide range of standard courses and bespoke options are available, both of which can be delivered at a site of your choice.
