Hands-On Robotics is a PLC SCADA / Robotics Training institute in Coimbatore. Let’s have a Complete Review about Hands-On Robotics. Their Hands-On strategies and infrastructure facilities for PLC SCADA Training / Advanced Robotics Training. From INFOZUB, we have visited their educational institution to collect the below information.

  • Are you looking for a career in the Industrial Automation area?
  • Do you have good knowledge in the basics of PLC programming?
  • Do you have exposure to Industries by working on real time experiments as used in a manufacturing industry?

You can get answers to all these questions at Hands-On Robotics. It is a training institute started by Automation Industry experts to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and real time industry requirements. The hardships they faced, while recruiting for their own automation company, made them start this institute. They found that even students graduating from Grade A institutions with world class labs were not industry ready.

The institute’s main aim is to impart practical skills required for a person to get hired in the automation industry. Their slogan says it all.


Are you confident with your skills to face an interview from a CORE company for a career in Industrial Automation?

If not, you should take up a course with Hands-On Robotics. Every student is made to apply the knowledge that they gain theoretically, by working on real time experiments. This results in clear understanding of fundamental concepts. They have experienced faculty at Hands-On Robotics who are further trained by current industry experts. Their promise to provide “Experiential Learning” is not just in their words. Every student who takes a class with them can vouch for it because he/she will definitely learn through experience by working on real-time practical experiments. Clear understanding of the fundamental concepts will give you the required confidence to attend interviews with core companies.

Hands-On Robotics Special

Can you call yourself a PLC programmer by just learning ladder logic programming basics? What kind of expertise is required in current industry for a PLC programmer?

A PLC is nothing more than a computer with a processor, except that the architecture is created in a way that is focused on interacting with the outside world. It gets information from the outside world through inputs – digital and analog sensors, relays and other assorted gadgets. It interacts with the real world through outputs – motors, valves, conveyor belts, actuators and much more. In between all of the inputs and outputs is the PLC – the heart of the beast and the brains behind the entire operation. PLC programming makes the decisions based on input from the real world, and then immediately interacts with the real world through the outputs – all in fractions of a second. These are essentially robots.

Hands-On Robotics have a unique set-up which includes real time experiments to teach the basics and advanced level PLC programming along with how they are being used in the Industry. This set up along with their training sessions ensures that the student gets an in-depth knowledge of PLC programming. They have different PLCs used in different experiments. So you get to learn all the types of PLCs. They do not give importance to number of brands of PLCs learnt. They emphasize the need for in-depth understanding by using practical experiments. If you learn to drive any one brand of car, then you can easily drive any other brand of car with a little familiarization with the controls. You do not need separate driving lesson and class for each car. It is the same for PLCs too. They do not increase their fees based on the number of PLCs they teach you. It will be based on the depth of Industrial practical knowledge you gain in their classes.

Hands-On Robotics have two levels of courses in PLC Programming.

BASIC PLC Programming

This course is a must for all students who want a career in Industrial Automation area. It covers the fundamentals of PLC operation. It includes the input/outputs of PLC and its basic instruction set. It teaches basics of Ladder Logic programming. It also includes the fundamentals and applications of sensors and pneumatics. An introduction to HMI programming and interfacing with PLC is also included in here.

It includes four hands-on experiments, which every student will be learning how to program the PLCs and run the experiment and thereby get a thorough working knowledge of PLC and industry related things.

Duration: 40 hrs          Prerequisites: None

Certificate: Basic PLC programmer

ADVANCED PLC Programming

This course is a must for all students who want to have a thorough in-depth knowledge of PLCs as required in the industry. It uses advanced instructions in PLC and students learn to program a complex sequence in PLC. They also learn to program and control stepper motors from PLC and program and control servo motors via Ethernet IP.

It includes three hands-on complex experiments using HMI, servo motors and stepper motors. By learning to run these experiments the student gains advanced knowledge of PLCs.

Duration: 30 hrs          Prerequisites: Basic PLC

Certificate: Certified PLC programmer

Do you know how a FANUC Industrial Robot is being used on a machine floor? Are you interested in learning the real – time Industrial Robot programming? Then, you have to attend the Basic and Advanced Robotics courses at Hands-On Robotics.

The computer control system of a robotic arm will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and indeed model to model, however a standard set of movement principles has evolved that most of the major manufacturers use. Although offline programming has advanced hugely much of the programming is done using the teach pendant. This is a handheld device that allows the robot to be moved and allow the input of commands and instructions. Movements are often controlled by buttons on the teach pendant.

BASIC Robotics

This course teaches the types of robots and their applications. It teaches the basics of robot programming and programming using a teach pendant. It teaches world, tool and joint modes. It includes a hands-on experiment to load and unload components to a CNC chuck.

Duration: 30 hrs    Prerequisites: None

Certificate: Basic Robot programmer


This course teaches offline programming and simulation using FANUC ROBO GUIDE. It teaches to control a robot from PLC through Ethernet. It also gives an overview of Robotic project design and execution. If the students are willing to take up an additional exam, FANUC robotics certification will also be given for this. It includes a hands-on experiment of palletizing of components from in-feed system and another experiment to do a vision based pick from conveyor and palletizing.

Duration: 20 hrs         Prerequisites: Basic Robotics, Basic PLC

Certificate: Advanced Robot programmer / FANUC certified Robot Programmer.

Hands-On Robotics Training

They have a regular track course format which will be two hours per day which is easier for students to attend on weekday evenings. They also have a fast track course format which will be for six hours a day and students who are having a short time to complete the course can go for this option.

More details about Robotics Training by Hands-On Robotics

They have special offers for students who register for BASIC PLC + ADVANCED PLC together or BASIC ROBOTICS + ADVANCED ROBOTICS together and also a great offer for who register for all the four courses. They also provide placement assistance for participants who complete advanced level PLC and Robotics courses. Courses can also be customized based on the requirements of educational institutions and corporate.
