FANUC America Highlights RAMTEC’s Certified Training Programs for Robots and CNC Automation

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., April 21, 2015 – FANUC America Corporation released a new YouTube video about RAMTEC’s certified robotics and CNC education program dedicated to helping create the next-generation workforce. RAMTEC, which stands for Robotics Advanced Manufacturing Technology Education Collaborative, uses FANUC industrial robots, CNCs and ROBODRILLs to technically train students for high-skilled careers. See the video here.

RAMTEC’s mission is to increase the number of skilled laborers to fill the hundreds of thousands of available jobs in the U.S. by providing the technical training required by business and industry. Based in Marion, Ohio at the Tri-Rivers Career Center (TRCC), RAMTEC offers adult, college and high school students the opportunity to work hands-on with the latest automation on the market. Upon completion of the program, students become certified which opens the doors for continuing education or immediate employment in advanced manufacturing.

According to Chuck Speelman, superintendent of TRCC and RAMTEC, students are provided the opportunity to attract potential employers offering competitive salaries. “It’s exciting for our students to have companies and universities recruiting them as soon as they complete our program.”

“We collaborate with education centers like RAMTEC to encourage the development of innovative curriculums based on today’s industry needs,” said Paul Aiello, director, FANUC Certified Education Training (CERT). “Companies are then able to hire locally trained students that have advanced automation skills.”

“We look forward to expanding the RAMTEC concept throughout the state with additional technical training facilities,” said Speelman. “Manufacturing is part of America’s future, and we’re excited to be a part of it.”

FANUC Introduces FASBacCNC Powerful & Easy to use Network Based Backup Solution for CNC Files

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – (January 26, 2015) FANUC America Corporation introduces FASBacCNC (FOCAS Automation Solution Backup CNC), a powerful and easy to use network based backup solution for FANUC CNCs. FASBacCNC eliminates the risk of one of the most common and expensive service interventions - extended downtime as a result of the loss of critical files on the CNC following a hardware failure or operational mistake.

 

FASBacCNC provides peace of mind by automatically backing up the CNC files that have been created and customized by the machine tool builder or end user to a remote network server. Files backed up can include CNC parameters, PMC ladder and parameters, custom macros and variables, part programs, tool offsets and workpiece coordinate system offsets.

 

FASBacCNC is a front end application that interfaces with FANUC’s FASConnect server for file browsing, scheduling and backup operations for FOCAS enabled FANUC CNCs. FASBacCNC can work with multiple FASConnect servers across an entire network, so that files from a single machine, work cell, factory or even multiple factories can be combined into a single configuration for backup scheduling. FASBacCNC can be used on any personal computer on the network located out in the factory, back in an office or from a remote location.

 

Users browse their FASConnect servers with easy to use drag & drop navigation. Individual files can be uploaded manually or multiple files from multiple CNCs across the network can be included in a configuration. Multiple configurations can then be combined into a single scheduled backup. Powerful and flexible scheduling allows automatic backup to be executed hourly, daily, weekly or monthly.  Users may also execute schedules manually for immediate needs.  Users receive email notifications relating to the scheduled backup status.

 

FASBacCNC is the latest addition to the FAS (FOCAS Automation Solution) lineup.  The complete FAS (FOCAS Automation Solution) suite includes:  FASBacCNC – a user interface for FASConnect allows browsing of all FASConnect servers and backup data either manually or on a scheduled basis, FASConnect - a Windows® service allows access and management of text data from all FOCAS enabled CNCs across a network, FASOPC - an OPC 3.0 compliant server for easy retrieval of machining data from all FOCAS enabled CNCs.
