Thank you for the feedback regarding the Spiral Search program.
The program uses the robot's TCP position, this means that you do not have to reprogram anything as long as you position the tool in the correct orientation before calling the Spiral Search subprogram. If you position the TCP with a 90deg offset relative to the base, the spiral search will be performed in this orientation.
Louis mentioned a revised version of the program that is available on the Robotiq website. The revised version can be downloaded by clicking on the following link : http://blog.robotiq.com/spiral-search?_ga=2.123390987.1087686588.1500726322-1745763925.1494319737
In this program the template, the spiral search program is included in a script file. The included PDF document will explain how to setup the script file within a UR program.
@_patrick_ Yes, the template will work with the FT150 sensor. You will be able to decrease the force thresholds if you use the FT150 sensor since you will have a better sensitivity with the FT150 sensor!
Here's the new program template of the week! It allows you to insert a pin or a shaft into a bore. Certain insertion applications require a lot of precision to align the part and the corresponding bore. By using the force data provided by the Force Torque Sensor FT300, the sense of touch is given to the robot’s skillset.
Get the program template here and check out the final result below!
Here's a new program template that allows you to place a part with good positional repeatability by using the force data provided by the Force Torque Sensor FT300 to find three reference points (X, Y and Z).

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!
