Hannover: Deutsche Messe has set up the world's first independent robot academy, Robotation Academy to help industries adopt future-focused production facilities and cost-effective automation strategies to safeguard sites and workplaces.

By providing a range of customized high-tech training courses throughout the year, the Robotation Academy will offer the manufacturing industry, and SMEs in particular, the opportunity to equip their businesses for the future.

Slated to start at the exhibition center in 2009, the Robotation Academy concept is already proving to be highly successful. Already 14 of the 20 partners whose high-tech products will ensure the academy is equipped with cutting-edge equipment, have been brought on board during HANNOVER MESSE 2008.

Throughout the year the academy will offer tailor-made courses to interested companies and presentation options for partners to showcase their technologies at the first conference center for automation and robotics.

Delighted with the wide selection of training options, Thomas Rilke, automation project manager at Deutsche Messe and CEO of the Robotation Academy, said that they would be catering for all users' needs, ranging from industrial robots and control and drive technologies to image processing and safety.

Technology camps are also planned for schoolchildren and students

Sepp D. Heckmann, Chairman of the Management Board at Deutsche Messe pointed out the economic and social dimensions of the "Robotation Academy", whose initiators also have the next generation in their sights. He believes that the academy will offer companies the opportunity to introduce innovative robotic and automation technology that will help them succeed on the global market

The Robotation Academy which will be located on a display space of over 2,500 square meters at Pavilion 36 will offer the ideal setting for an in-depth look at automation and robotation. unique machinery is available to participants in addition to outstanding event rooms.

"The Robotation Academy enables our experienced trainers to pass on their expertise and industry know-how to a broad audience. The concentration of different robot brands at one central site is ideal for this," explains Jürgen Haase, managing director of cooperation partner Volkswagen Coaching.

Maintaining a focus on people when working with innovative technology is one of the key criteria for training at the Robotation Academy. "Every customer needs their 'robot view'," emphasizes Olaf Katzer, who manages Volkswagen Coaching's technical training in Wolfsburg and has been working with Deutsche Messe for three years. "However, they can only develop this from the overall context in which a robot is used and can only get the right training from coaches who have the know-how to choose the right ingredients for customized training."
