Obtain a flawless finish over the whole part’s surface by operating with constant speed and force.Here are some great reasons to use it:SET EXTERNAL TOOL CENTER POINTRobotiq Finishing Copilot software allows you to program an external TCP. It lets the robot know that the finishing tool is external to the robot, unlike most cobot applications. The finishing tasks are then processed by the robot bringing the part to the External TCP.COMPENSATE FOR TOOL WEARFinishing Copilot’s contact offset node uses a point on the external tool as a reference to measure wear. With 0.2 mm precision, Contact Offset validates the tool’s exact position at any moment. If there’s a slight change, the robot program will automatically adjust all relevant parameters.
