Robotiq is proud to offer a new key component enhancing our FT Sensors solution for UR robots.

It's an add-on software package with enhanced features to guide the UR robot. This add-on is presented in the form of a toolbar located at the top of the UR touch pad. By a simple touch, you can activate and deactivate the ActiveDrive mode wherever you are in the Polyscope tabs.

You also have access to various features like:
  • 6-axis movements; which is similar to the actual freedrive mode of UR,
  • Scara movement; allowing translations in the X, Y, Z plane and 1 rotation of the tool,
  • Translation movements; Also known as Cartesian movements which allow only linear translation in the 3 axis,
  • Plane movements; which keeps your tool always in the same plan,
  • Automatic tool orientation in the closest orthogonal axis,
  • Speed of the movements (fast or slow).
All those new features are meant to facilitate the hand guiding of the UR robots. The ActiveDrive mode take full advantage of the FT-300 and FT-150 sensitivity beyond the force feedback in the robot program. The results are smoother and more precise movements allowing the robot to be easily move with only 1 hand.

This new Robotiq product is compatible with UR robots using CB3 and CB3.1 controllers (Polyscope version 3.2 or latest).

So, what do you think about this new product?
