Force torque sensor software
- September 9, 2018
Robotiq has launched Force Copilot software to operate Universal Robots’ e-Series embedded force torque sensor.
Force Copilot accelerates the programming of a range of applications, including part insertion and surface finding, among others.
Robotiq says Force Copilot’s sensing functions increase flexibility and reliability in machine tending, assembly, finishing, and pick and place applications. A suite of setup tools allows the user to hand guide the robot on complex trajectories. The software enables objects to be placed precisely in jigs, trays and chucks, and facilitates assembly applications through alignment, indexing and insertion functions. The interface unlocks finishing applications, with adjustable adaptive compliance and constant force for all robot axes.
