Logistics BusinessRARUK expands UR training team

The quality resources RARUK Automation (UK) Limited provides its customers has been central to its promotion from gold to platinum status Universal Robots (UR) distributor. Dedicated UR training is a key element. The company opened the UK’s first UR Authorised Training Centre at its headquarters in Bedfordshire just two years ago and despite COVID-19 disruption, the facility has gone from strength to strength.

To support demand, RARUK Automation has further expanded its training team. Automation technician Harry Brunker, who holds a first-class honours degree in mechanical engineering with professional development from Brunel University, has joined the line-up of certified UR trainers. Brunker and his fellow trainer Paul Keeling provide tuition in collaborative robot programming, empowering UK customers to get the very best return from their UR investment.

The UR Authorised Training Centre Network, of which RARUK Automation is part, allows a variety of modules to be delivered in a local, classroom environment or online. They cover core to advanced cobot programming, including cobot scripting, preventative maintenance, system troubleshooting and parts replacement. Beyond that, the company has the benefit of showroom and laboratory facilities to help customers explore and prove cobot applications.
