ABB Australia  announces that is has successfully conducted training workshops on the safe operation and design of machinery with particular regard to robotics. Roger Lim, an expert in the field of robotic safety systems, conducted the sessions as part of ABB’s National Robotics Innovation Competition, now in its third year.

The workshop was embraced by students from RMIT, University of Melbourne and Swinbourne University with a variety of disciplines including mechatronic, manufacturing, electrical and mechanical engineering represented.

Roger Lim outlined the current Australian Standards on machinery safeguarding and how they are interpreted. Real life scenarios were delivered by Roger Lim and ABB’s Robotics Manager, Paul Gekas that provided students with a better understanding of how solutions can be developed for safety to ensure a safe operating environment.   

The workshop was an element of a series of training sessions for students participating in ABB’s National Robotics Innovation Competition. Previous sessions held involved discussions on project management and developing robotic systems and students have also received instruction and training on ABB’s robot studio software.
