NEW! Wrist Camera Update
|Not answered yet|
On October 10, Robotiq introduced new functionalities for its Wrist Camera.
Locate a tag on a tray or jig and adjust related robot moves based on how the tag has been moved on your work plane.
Scan codes to help track parts, or run instructions based on the code that is read.
Perform complex assembly tasks by using the new capability to process parts one at a time.
Use these new functionalities to start production even faster!
CAM LOCATE Node: New “Process one at a time” Option
You can now implement Cam Locate loops with the “Process one at a time” option. It further reduces cycle time of complex assemblies by enabling to switch between different parts while keeping unprocessed parts in memory. No need to take a picture for every part.
SCAN CODE Node
The Wrist Camera now supports reading barcodes and 2D codes, with a total of 11 types of codes: Datamatrix, QR, PDF-417, Code 93, EAN-8, EAN-13, ITF-14, UPC-E, UPC-A, Code 39, Code 128.
The Wrist Camera now reads 11 types of codes.
FIND VISUAL OFFSET and APPLY VISUAL OFFSET Nodes
Thanks to the brand-new Robotiq tag, the Wrist Camera is now able to detect changes in positioning, and to alter robot moves based on this position variation (i.e. the “offset”). This process is two-fold, initiated by the Find Visual Offset node, and followed by the Apply Visual Offset node.
The Robotiq Visual Offset Tag is made of durable aluminum.
With the tag, ensure your robot program remains valid even when moving the robot between workstations. The tag acts as a reference position, which eliminates the need to reprogram moves for a same routine done on a new work plane, or when a rig enters a robot work plane for processing.
SAVE IMAGE node
This node lets you save pictures to a USB drive. Among other things, you can use it to collect visual data at any step of the program, or as a quality improvement tool when a Cam Locate fails to recognize a taught object.
