Ferris State University will begin to offer a robotics course for its Plastics and Polymer Engineering Technology students.

In partnership with Wittmann Battenfeld Inc., Ferris has acquired a new W821 robot for its lab. This course will teach the students how to integrate a robot into the injection molding process. In addition, the students will learn about end-of-arm tooling (design/build), cavity pressure sensing, vision systems, and other automation equipment.

“We are excited to offer this course for our students. We feel as though the exposure gained from this class will make our students more marketable to our internship and full time employers”, said Steve Wolfer, professor of the Plastics and Rubber Programs. For more information contact Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich., at (231) 591-2640.
