  • Detecting Thin Objects With the Robotiq 2-Finger Gripper

    Hi Pros, 

    We've got a new program template for you this week! As you may know, the Robotiq 2-Finger Gripper has a built-in feature to detect the presence of an object. The typical fingertips allow the detection of an object with a thickness of about 1.2mm or more.

    But now with the help of this simple program template you can detect the presence of thin objects! Get the program template here and check out the final result below.

    Hi Ropot_man, 
    To share the emergency stop function with other machine, you'll need to use the configurable I/O. 
    See section 5.3.2.3 of the UR5 manual

    Hi Pros,
