I would like to share with you some guidance about how to integrate a Robotiq device (ex: 2F, hande, epick or airpick) on a robot.Keep in mind that the reference and updated information for information remain device manual.First let's have a look to type of robot on which you may want to make an integration. The amount of work needed to make an integration will change depending on the robot.I see 3 categories of robots:Plug & Play robots supported by robotiqPlug & Play robots supported by robot manufacturerNon supported to robot1/ Plug & Play robots supported by robotiqIf you have no robotique integration experience choice the easy way, use a plug & play robot for which integration is supported by Robotiq.For those robots Robotiq provide all you need to seamlessly integrate on the robot: hardware (coupling, cables,...), software and documentation.At the time of this articles plug & play robots are (Please check robotiq support page for latest information https://robotiq.com/support):Universal Robot (All products)Techman Robot (hande, 2F, ePick, airPick, FT300-S)Omron Techman robot (hande, 2F, ePick, airPick, FT300-S)Doosan (hande, 2F)Aubo (hande, 2F)Hanwha (hande, 2F)Using a plug&play robot remove the integration challenge. Anyone can make it in few minutes !Robotiq sells hardware kits for those supported robots so no need to scratch your head to know what you need. Your local distributor will be able to provide you those kits.2/ Plug & Play robots supported by robot makersSome other robot makers provide documentation and software for plug&play integration. Hardware is selected among robotiq accessories.Those solution are directly supported by robot makers.Here below are few example:KinovaKassow3/ Non supported robotsThere is always a way to integrate robotiq gripper on a robot but you have to be skilled on how to integrate Modbus RTU device. It should be not problem for an integrator but challenging for a person who have no integration experience.In this category are especially industrial robots.On the next post will an overview about the robot information you need to know before starting integration.
