Can you set the number of parts already in a stack for a UR10 palletizing application?
/ Most recent by MarcAntoine_Gauthier
I am sure this is possible. One way to do it is to create a counter. (Assign a variable as the counter to 0. Then add plus 1 each time a part is stacked. You will then be able to monitor the number of parts stacked.
Are you using standard waypoint to stack?
One easy way to do it and avoid collision is to use the Force Copilot software from Robotiq. We have a built in node called "Find Surface" that is designed for application like yours. The robot goes in one direction until you feel a force (Feel the stack) then it will jump to the next node in line. (most of the time the opening of the gripper).
Hope this helps.
