Unstacking a Pallet With Vision

Robocase is working on an unstacking pallets application. The robot is picking up items off the surface using a vision system and then placing the items in a box using the pallet function. Roger would like for the robot to pick items from inside the box to place them into a different one. He's looking for a way to use the pallet procedure in reverse. Have any ideas? Help Roger!

Monitoring the Safety Settings Externally

kawhitt would like to know if it is possible to automatically send a command to an external device (PLC)? He wants to monitor changes in the safety settings. Do you know which device could help?

Installing a Universal Robot on a Servo Driven Linear Axis

Sebastien is currently working on a project where the UR would need to be moved on a rail. He is curious to know how hard it would be to have the UR move on a servo driven axis. Would this be possible? Have your tried it before? Help Sebastien!
