FANUC America and APT Manufacturing Solutions partnered to develop educational “cells” for Advanced Manufacturing CERT training. The AM-CERT20 Cell utilizes a FANUC M20 robot that has a PLC, multiple End of Arm Tooling options, custom folding fencing, and safety training feature’s built into one portable system.
Skill Boss: Comprehensive Assessment
"CPT Plus" Certification Assessment
CPT Plus certification provides employers further proof of an individual's skill set by requiring successful demonstration of hands-on on skills in electronic, electrical, fluid power and mechanical systems.
Skill Boss, designed to meet MSSC standards, is a hands-on skill training & assessment system that integrates seamlessly into any manufacturing program and is required for Certified Production Technician (CPT) Plus certification
Amatrol’s Skill Boss (95-MSB1) offers organizations performance-based assessment for evaluating the skill levels and competencies of future machine operators. This system fits onto a standard tabletop and features an electric motor, variable frequency drive, human-machine interface, pneumatic pick-and-place module, and much more! When setup, this system will quality test and sort blocks made from plastic and metal.
Skill Boss was designed to assess the hands-on skills needed by today’s modern manufacturing production areas including assembly & machine operation. No other system boasts this many technologies in a portable platform.
Use Skill Boss to Gain MSSC’s CPT Plus Certification
This system is used by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) for its Certified Production Technician (CPT) Plus certification. The Skill Boss assessment system, designed to meet MSSC standards, is a hands-on skill assessment system that integrates seamlessly into any manufacturing program. MSSC’s CPT Plus program provides proof of an individual’s ability to perform a wide range of hands-on technical skills in electronic, electrical, fluid power, & mechanical systems.
The CPT Program is an industry-led standards-based training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s advanced manufacturing workforce. The interactive multimedia curriculum for each program is identical and focuses on building foundational workplace skills for advanced manufacturing careers within areas like safety, quality, manufacturing processes and maintenance, as well as cross-functional skills such as communications, teamwork, customer awareness and workplace conduct. The CPT Plus certification expands on the full CPT credential by providing employees with proof that an individual has the comprehensive technical knowledge and hands-on skills needed to be immediately productive.
Develop/Evaluate Individuals Skills Sets
Skills Boss provides the tool you need to teach or evaluate an individual's skills as they install, adjust and troubleshoot components on this fully functional mechatronics system, applicable to both discrete parts and process manufacturing.
Performing a real-world sorting & finishing process, Skill Boss automatically feeds parts into the system where they are rejected or accepts to continue the process. If accepted, the parts are buffed with a polish wheel before a 3-axis robotic pick & place system picks up the part and moves it into "finished goods" based on its material.
