Hello,

I'm looking to measure the width of objects using the 2-finger 140 gripper. Is this possible to do and if so how do you do it?

Thank you,

Nick Baron

    @NickBaron1 you can do so using script functions we provide. You should start by having a variable to record the gripper position. Use a variable assignment with:
    position= rq_current_pos()
    this will give you a number between 0 and 255 that represents your object size. With the 2F 140 you get an approximate resolution of 0.65mm. Note that you will need a minimum thickness of 1.2 mm to have something reliable on object detect.

    Hope that helps.

    Okay, thank you. I didn't see this function in the URScript manual; is there a script manual which documents all the functions you can use to interact with the robotiq products?

    @NickBaron1yes you can find all of our functions and variables inside our instruction manual. Check the online version, section 4, subsection about UR robots.
