Unit 1: Robotics Systems and Basic Procedures

Unit 1: Robotics Systems and Basic Procedures

Level: 3

Unit type: Mandatory

Guided learning hours: 10

Unit introduction

Robotic automation is at the forefront of the latest industry developments across a range of engineering sectors. Industrial robots are used within heavy production environments such as motor car assembly, as well as in light industry such as printed circuit board (pcb) assembly. Robots are also being introduced into ancillary operations such as product picking, packing, test and inspection.

This unit develops a learner’s abilities in robot programming and engineering, allowing

the learner to understand the specific terms and techniques associated with working on a robotic system. This in turn will prepare them for a trainee or apprentice role in this field, or for further study in this subject area.

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria

To pass this unit, the learner needs to meet all the learning outcomes for the unit. The assessment criteria determine the standard required to achieve the unit.

Learning outcomes                                                                           Assessment criteria

A

Understand the main components of the robotic system and their function

A.1

Explain how and why the main components of the ARM function correctly

A.2

Explain how and why the main components of the control unit function correctly

B

Be able to use the teach pendant (programming terminal)

B.1

Explain the main teach pendant commands and functions

B.2

Correctly use the graphical user interface to safely move the ARM to a given specification

C

Safely use the correct operating procedures of a robot control unit

C.1

Discuss the need for degrees of protection in a robotic system in relation to given IP ratings

C.2

Correctly and safely use the control unit to meet given objectives

Essential information for assessors

Essential resources

Please see Section 8: Quality assurance for details of resources needed to deliver all units.

Suggested assessment approach

This section must be read in conjunction with Section 6: Assessment.

This unit is assessed internally by the centre and externally verified by Pearson. The table below shows the suggested approach to assessments.

When preparing the assessment for this unit, the learner should be given an assignment brief designed by the tutor. This brief should be set in a specific organisational context. It should draw on learning from the unit and be designed in a way that enables learners to meet all the assessment criteria.

Learning outcome

Suggested assessment approach

A     Understand the main components of the robotic system and their function

A two-page statement or five-slide presentation reporting on the main components of a robotic system and the control unit.

B Be able to use the teach pendant (programming terminal)

A demonstration of how to use the programming terminal to move the ARM for a given engineering scenario, using specific commands and functions. This could include a quiz or question-and-answer session.

C     Safely use the correct operating procedures of a robot control unit

A verbal or written discussion around degrees of protection and the IP rating system. Demonstration of safe and correct use of the control unit.
