What's trending on DoF this week? Gluing application with the camera, barcode reader with UR, finding parts in multiple positions with the Wrist Camera, how to connect the Gripper via ROS, and much more. Get the latest news from automation pros!

Gluing Application With the Camera

Rolf wants to automate a gluing process with foam pieces of various sizes and shapes. The idea is to place parts manually on the conveyor, take a picture with the camera to identify the shape and apply glue inside the part's contour. How would you work around this application?

Barcode Reader Integration With UR

C_Hoover is using a UR5 to glue different sized objects to a shaft. He would like to integrate a barcode reader directly into the UR to call up various subroutines for each different part. He is wondering if it is possible to integrate the barcode reader directly to the UR. Share your ideas with Cole!

Finding Parts in Multiple Positions With the Wrist Camera


Alib was wondering if it was possible to find a part from multiple positions. At the moment she is teaching a part and moveL for each snapshot position. But there is a simpler way for Alison to conduct this by using a script command. Get the tip from our Integration Coach David_Gariepy.

How to Connect the Gripper Via ROS

 Wukong is experiencing problems connecting to the Robotiq 2-Finger Gripper to Linux via the USB of the Gripper and camera. When he runs the driver an error appears and the Linux cannot  find any USB device. He needs your help!
