Official training partner Universal Robots

As one of Universal Robots’ first partners and our extensive experience since 2010, we are the Universal Robots Training partner. Besides our UR-certificated trainers, we have a lot of knowledge about cobots and applications.

Gibas is easily accessible as it is centrally located in the Netherlands next to the A28 highway. Our modern and fully equipped training-center offers an ideal environment to get the most out of your training.


We have taken actions to ensure training will be safe for everyone. There are limited available places, so everyone can keep enough distance from each other. Also we provide face masks and ensure the place is disinfected. We will also ask attendants to fill in a health statement.

Core Training

After the 2.5-day course, you will have hands-on experience with a UR robot. You will have programmed the robot several times to perform common tasks, including the operation of common peripherals (conveyors, sensors, grippers). Furthermore you will be able to optimize a pick and place flow, perform palletization, understand safety concepts, and know the additional resources available to them both online and through other training courses. You will be ready to return to your own robot and create pick and place, palletization, and other common application programs on your own.

Key take-aways from this course:

  • Manage the robot safely understanding safety concepts
  • Build and optimize programs for several typical applications such as pick & place, palletizing, polishing or dispensing
  • Connect and handle peripheral equipment, such as sensors, grippers or conveyor belts
  • Know the online tools and resources available to help with application programming
Advanced training

When you complete the Advanced course, you will be able to fully understand and utilize all commands in the Universal Robots “User Interface”. You will also be able to better optimize your application and reduce the number of waypoints used by utilizing variable waypoints and user defined features. The latter feature can assist you to align the movement of the robot to the installation or environment. Conveyor tracking and advanced force control will also be explored in this training course. This course enables every developer to deploy applications that account for more environmental variables.

Key take-aways from this course:

  • Create and structure your programs in a professional manner
  • In-depth knowledge of functions in UR User Interface
  • URScript programming language
  • Work with variable positions and multiple TCPs
  • Referencing and shift positions on different coordinate systems for e.g. artificial vision applications
  • Track and coordinate the movement of the robot with conveyor belts
  • Use the integrated force/torque sensor for developing complex applications using the force feedback
Safety training

Safety is a mandatory legal requirement for robotic applications – as for any other type of machine. Collaborative robotics is changing the traditional paradigm in the use of industrial robots by making it possible to dispense with a safety enclosure under certain circumstances. Unlike traditional industrial robots, the required level of safety for human-robot collaboration is achieved by limiting the force and power the robot can exert in such a way that it does not cause injury in case of collision. The advantages of this type of collaboration are obvious: reduced space requirements, lower plant costs, higher productivity and higher quality of the manufactured products.

To put a collaborative solution into operation, it is necessary to comply with the European directives. This training is designed to help designers, manufacturers and users of machinery and all the personnel involved in this process to understand the requirements of the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE and the standards harmonized with it.

Key take-aways from this course:

  • Know the relationship between technically relevant legal regulations and rules
  • Get an overview of the 42/2006/EC (Machinery Directive)
  • Understand the context and legal meanings of the relevant standards and legal regulations (EN ISO 10218 / EN ISO 13849 / TS 15066)
  • Know the relevant contents of the above mentioned standards and legal regulations.
