Completion of this Badge will allow you access to the Robotics Collab under the strict supervision of qualified DFL Staff.

This induction covers the safety considerations of the Kuka iiwa collaborative robots, the Robotiq gripper tool and Robotiq suction gripper tool.

It is a requirement for all subsequent training on individual tools but itself doesn’t grant you any unattended access to the space or the ability to book and use machines. Specific safety features and operational instruction for our different machines will be covered in future inductions.
