Beta URCap for a new FT 300 feature

_MG_7265 (1)-1

This week we are very excited to bring you a beta version of a new FT 300 feature! The latest update is a new URCap node that uses FT 300 data to apply predefined forces and/or torques on a path recording node. With this new version, the robot can also have a spring effect in desired axes.

Check out the beta version of the new FT 300 feature and download the Beta Quickstart guide here.

This week, Jason_g asked a question about the possibility of using a camera to distinguish between two or more defined patterns, and then having an action performed after a specific pattern is detected. Our integration coach David_Gariepy stated that this could be achieved with the Wrist Camera.

For all camera-related questions, this eBook is a great guide.

One of our team members, mathbelanger, is dealing with stainless steel screws and recently asked a question regarding the best way to carry SS screws from the screw dispenser to their final position. Do you guys have any ideas?
