DEPCO’s Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) workcell is completely integrated and designed to be stand-alone. The robot tends the CNC machine and performs other part manipulation and/or assembly tasks. The robot loads and unloads parts to and from the conveyor. The robot is a rugged robotic system that offers advanced robotic path control, speed, and accuracy. A real-time, multi-tasking controller that can simultaneously monitor and control up to 8 inputs and 8 outputs control the vertically articulated robot arm. The CNC machining center is a computer controlled milling machine. Similar to larger industrial machines, the CNC machine uses EIA, ISO, and Fanuc-compatible G&M code programs to cut parts in a variety of materials. The machine's software supports a number of programming modes, including linear, circular, and helical interpolation, multiple tool programming, and canned cycles. This turnkey FMS workcell gives students training and skills in CAD/CAM, CNC and robotic programming and control, and automated manufacturing systems.





DEPCO courseware is developed from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) and the National Skill Standards Board (NSSB). Close correlation with these standards will provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary for success in the workplace.
