Robotiq Finishing CoPilot
Automate all finishing processes requiring the robot to bring the finishing tool to the part:
Generate a finishing path in minutes. Program complex finishing trajectories by teaching less than 10 waypoints, even on complex, spherical surfaces. Apply con”&”stant force at each cycle.
Validate the part’s position by using reference points on the part. If there’s a slight change, the robot program will automatically adapt to all related parameters.
Automate all finishing processes requiring the robot handling ”&”the part against a fixed finishing tool:
Make sure the robot offers a flawless finish over the whole part’s surface by operating with constant speed and force over the external tool center point.
Compensate for external tool wear at any given time, usin”&”g a reference point on the tool to let the robot notice any movement, and automatically adapt all related program parameters.
Finishing Copilot features
- Set an external tool center point
- Find and apply contact offset
- Generate finishing paths with fewer than 10 waypoints
- Achieve 0.2-mm precision (same as Universal Robots)
- Find a surface
- Perform various insertions
- Hand-guide your robot
- Follow complex trajectories
- Edit point-to-point trajectories
- Apply constant force and define the stiffness for each axis
- Reset sensor values to zero
SET EXTERNAL TOOL CENTER POINT
Finishing Copilot lets you program an external TCP. This tells the robot that the finishing tool is external to the robot, unlike in most collaborative robot applications. The finishing task is then processed with the robot bringing the part to the external TCP
GENERATE A FINISHING PATH IN MINUTES
Program complex finishing trajectories by teaching fewer than 10 waypoints. Whether it’s on a flat (4 waypoints), curved (6 waypoints), or spherical (9 waypoints) surface, Finishing Copilot generates a complete path and applies consistent force at each cycle.
COMPENSATE FOR TOOL WEAR
The contact offset node uses a point on the external tool as a reference to measure wear. Contact offset validates the tool’s exact position anytime you wish. If there’s a slight change, the robot program automatically adapts all related parameters.
VALIDATE PART POSITION
The contact offset node uses reference points on the part to validate its position. If there’s a slight change, the robot program automatically adapts all related parameters.
