Duration: 1 Day*
In this advanced level programming class, students will configure and program the MPiec controller for a pick-and-place application to a moving conveyor. Students will implement the MC_TrackConveyorBelt block, along with other required programming. A pre-configured vision system will be integrated to the controller program. Students will be assigned one lab station only; a delta robot or 6-axis robot manipulator.
Students will receive a copy of the class training manual, as well as selected product, user, and instruction materials in paper and/or electronic format.
COVID Policies During Training Classes:
Yaskawa America, Technical Training Services follows the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) recommendation of social distancing at least six feet during factory training classes held at the Yaskawa America facility in Waukegan, IL. To meet these recommendations, we’ve physically rearranged the classrooms and limited the number of students enrolled in the class.
Students and instructors must adhere to Yaskawa's safety protocol for mask or face shield utilization in all Yaskawa training facilities, which follow local, state or federal mask orders or revised CDC guidelines. Students should bring with them and may wear during the class, a facemask or face shield approved by the CDC for COVID-19 face protection based on Yaskawa’s safety protocol level at the time of their scheduled class.
Yaskawa TTS provides a number of training classes for its customers that require the use of low level voltages (120vac, 208vac and 460vac). To ensure a level of safety for the student while working with training class equipment using these voltages, TTS follows an Arc Flash Policy that is consistent with NFPA 70E.
Each student attending class must wear non-melting, untreated, natural fiber long pants.
This class is designed for the programming engineer who already has significant application experience with the MotionWorks IEC hardware configuration and programming environment, and is comfortable with the IEC 61131-3 standard and PLCopen standard. This is an advanced class and can be quite challenging. Proper preparation is critical for successful completion.
These training courses are prerequisites:
- Introduction to Conveyor Tracking (eLV.MotionWorksIEC.01.ConvTrackIntro)
- Practical Application of Conveyor Tracking with MotionWorks IEC (eLV.MotionWorksIEC.01.ConvTrackApp
- PLCopen Part 4: Coordinated Motion (TRM010-MPiec-PLCopenPart4)
- MPiec Intermediate Application Programming (TRM020-MPiec-Intermediate)
- MPiec Robot Control (TRM020-MPiec-RobotControl)
Equivalent experience will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.

This is a lab style “hands – on” format training course. Students will work independently or with a partner. A workbook is provided with questions and instructions to complete the required configuration and programming. Some code will be created by the student, and some code is provided for import into the project. A variety of programming languages are used, including structured text (ST) and ladder diagram (LD).
*Since this class is a continuation from the MPiec Robot Control APW, the material will begin at 3:00pm on day 1 and run until 3:00pm on day 2, with a one-hour lunch and one 15-minute break. The class consists of approximately 5% lecture and 95% hands-on exercises.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing. The fee that you will be charged includes all training documents, a light snack each morning and a lunch each day. Costs associated with travel, lodging, and evening meals are not included and are the student’s responsibility.
