Define Safety Planes Like a Pro


An older discussion on normal and reduced safety settings, started by Abeachy_HG24, resurfaced this week. Matthewd92 suggested one approach: define safety planes with two simple waypoints.

But Harini26 and Meeksy are still having trouble setting their safety planes. Take a look at their concerns – maybe you can give them some advice!

Matt_minner wants to know which mobile platforms you’ve been using for machine tending applications. One of his clients is building its own platform for a UR10, and he’s curious about best practices. Maxlavigueur suggested the Vention platform. Let everyone know if you've got any other suggestions!
