So this is my first time on r9k. Not sure what to post so, here's a picture of 4 robots doing robot things. I work in Maintenance in a welding facility.
emotion means nothing to my robots. Only logic.
I like these robots
yes fml. lol.
have some material handlers
material handler next to weld robot for comparison. weld robot is on a raised platform.
Canadian based automotive supplier. I'm not real keen on giving out personal info, and the fact I don't think I'm supposed to be sending pictures out of our customers property lol.
this is a feels thread for neet robots like myself
wagekeks (workers) like you are not welcome here
also the same aplies if you have a girlfriend
now i cant force you to leave but take a good look at the catalog and you'll get it
Love it. they are paying for my college through an apprenticeship program. Money is good, I enjoy the work. The only thing is the physical wear on my body but hey, I'm young.
I do not understand anon :( why can't we be friends. Also cannot into catalog cuz chanu app.
26 next month.
I started here as a temporary at 22. hired at 23 and made team leader the same year. ran my own production line for about 2 years. went and ran my own 2700 ton transfer press for over a year. I went back to team lead because press bay fucking sucked and then got into the apprenticeship program for maintenance. I like working with my hands, and learning. robots are cool as fuck too.
Manual labor? I'm a maintenance technician, not an operator. I get to play with robots mostly.
meh. I browse /k/ a lot and lurk some on /b/
need something to do while at work and bored anyways.
if you want to make good money and mostly just use a computer, take some PLC classes. Good money, perfect for a young single guy. Get to travel the state's doing contract work
I have no idea what that is. googled it and got more confused. didn't read in very deep though. its super easy man. just have to understand XYZ. Most of it is backing up through a program and changing a bad tip and putting it back where it belongs. but it's way more than just robots. Pneumatics, hydraulics, electrical, PLC. Robots is just the most interesting. plus the teacher pendants are pretty informative.
you come from a Dying breed man. how goes it?
Sup guys, got room for a fabricator?
which pic? Teach Pendant is >>25950310
It is for teaching the robot what to do. also controls the robots. you can move them with it. that one is for a motoman, this one in
is for FANUC
hello fellow weldfag. I can MIG, and halfass stick weld.
Damn, that thing looks like a beast.
Bizarrely enough, I've only ever used a TIG. The shop I used to work at (where my pic was from) was a motorsports shop and worked mostly with relatively exotic metals (stainless, cromoly, aluminum, etc), so 99% of our work was TIG. We had a MIG but I never actually used it.
to write some of the more complex programs yes. I believe it's KAREL. I'm not 100% sure on that. As for normal maintenance, no. you just manually move it using the XYZ jog buttons, which all correspond to a certain axis. (SLURBT)
staffing company. There are tons of staffing companies that will put you at a factory. pay is usually shit starting out but it's a foot in the door. just look for staffing companies around you. usually have a name like Quality Personnel, Liberty Staffing, Easy Staff. shit like that.
If you have a resume yes that's great. usually they have a office where you do an application and turn in a resume. look in yellow pages for staffing companies, and call them and ask what time and days they do applications
Less pleasant side of my job. Electrical cabinet. fuck troubleshooting electical.
well I'm a recent electrical engineering graduate so I would like to do something engineering related or do coding but I've come to realize that I dug myself into a corner and thats just a pipedream now
A combination of low grades, low social skills and being unable to secure an internship has made me bottom of the barrel as far university graduates go.
After some introspection I've come to the conclusion that I irrecoverably fucked up and the only thing I can do now is cut your losses and move on
in short: yeah I'll take any job , the prospect of me living on the streets once my dad dies is very real so I need a job, ANY job.
>I assume you took PLC classes as well?
I have experience in programming FPGAs in verilog,
though every example or diy project I see online for things is in VHDL , made me wonder why they made us use verilog.
I don't know much about PLC yet. I know we use the RSlogix program from Allen Bradley. if you know PLC you can get a contractor job. use like monster our whatever else staffing/job website. that is of you have no problem with traveling. also turn in resumes at any factory around.
example of our PLC
>use like monster our whatever else staffing/job website.
Oh I threw my resume around at monster and a dozen other job boards for about 8 months
I'd like to do technical work at least but if a staffing company says the only job it can get me is delivering newspapers or moping up floors, then so be it, my father's health is fading and i don't have the luxury of time anymore.
well then I'd say apply to any staffing company. I know around here we get a lot of temps on a weekly basis. Remember, getting the job you want is all about selling yourself. You are THE man for the job. You can do the job the best. Even if you start as a temp, its easy to move up to a skilled job. Also, the plant I work at is actually 1 PLC tech short...
>I browse /k/
>Breddy gud job from the looks of it
You are 100% welcome here, we need more /k/ommandos that have something to talk about to join in. On an unrelated note, did it require you any college course to get there, or technical school ?
I got into the apprenticeship program that my company offers. they pay for college (community college/technical school) and books, and I have to continue working for them. 4 years of school (or less depending how much you want to overwork yourself) and 8000 hours on the job. in the end I'll have my degree, a journeyman card for industrial maintenance, and be a state certified electrician.
Anyone know how hard it is to convert cell phone video to gif or webm? can I do it from my phone while at work? I'd like to show how the teach pendant works and moves the robot
