Schneider Packaging Equipment Unveils State-of-the-Art Training Lab for Customers

BREWERTON, NY — Schneider Packaging Equipment Co. has built a state-of-the-art training laboratory at its headquarters in upstate New York. The lab provides customers the opportunity to train on equipment in a controlled environment. Through hands-on training, customers are able to learn specific technical skills without slowing or stopping their production lines, which helps lower the learning curve once the new system is in place.

Training courses include:

Robotic Training Cell

1. Introduction to Schneider robotics
2. General FANUC robotics
3. Unit load creation using Pallet Pro and/or Schneider pallet generation software
4. Robot troubleshooting

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) Training

1. Introduction to PLCs
2. Introduction to Schneider PLC logic
3. Troubleshooting PLCs
4. Product select addition to PLC
5. HMI fundamentals

Servo Motor Training

1. Introduction to servos
2. Servo troubleshooting

In addition to customers, Schneider employees will use the training facility. The company relies on the continued development of its highly trained technicians to serve its customers. With the lab and its miniature robotic palletizing cell, service and maintenance training will occur more frequently with a broader range of training programs increasing the number of Schneider FANUC robot-certified technicians.

Schneider is currently accepting customer requests to use the training lab as part of a new equipment purchase or based on individual needs. Training can be scheduled by contacting Rick Buffham at 315-676-3035 ext. 469 or at [email protected]
