Hi Pros, 

I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about the upcoming release for the Wrist Camera URCap! 

We've noticed that a lot of people want to use the Wrist Camera to locate stock parts for machine tending applications. For this reason, we have included a new method to teach a part to the vision system that is 3 times faster and much easier. The new parametric teaching method will allow you to input the dimensions of a simple geometric part, this means that the vision system will create a much more simple model (square, circle, ring or rectangle). The new teaching method will also have a positive impact on the processing time.

Take a look at the video to see the new teaching process: 



 Stay tuned, we will be posting the updated release on DoF!

    That looks really good!

    Now for the silly question, which manufacturers dress pack is that on the robot?  And how is it working for you?

    @matthewd92
    The cable management system that is on the robot comes from Bagger Nielsen, here is the link to their page on the UR+ site : https://www.universal-robots.com/plus/product/bn-uni-kit-22772-22651/

    Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the tubing used to protect the cables since it is quite difficult to pass multiple cables through the rigid tubing. And the aluminum tool plate can get trigger protective stops by hitting the wrist of the robot during relative moves. On the flip side, the tubing does protect the entirety of the cables (including the pig tail) so that's nice.
