What's trending on DoF this week? Stacking/unstacking parts using the Force Torque Sensor, Gripper safety certification, train application challenge, small parts detection and much more. Get the latest news from automation Pros!

Stacking/Unstacking Parts Using the Force Torque Sensor Program Template

Do you want to stack or unstack parts in your shop just like the video below? This new program template by David_Gariepy will answer your needs! It allows you to stack or unstack parts using the Robotiq Force Torque Sensor FT 150 or Force Torque Sensor FT 300 with a UR robot. It uses the force feedback received from the sensor to detect when it touches a surface. Get the program template here.


Gripper Safety Certification

Thho13ae read about the possibility to certify Grippers in relation to ISO/TS 15066 and ISO 13849. He asked the community if it made sense to certify Grippers when the safety aspects generally depend on the type of application. What is your opinion about this? Let us know!

"Train Vs. Robot" Programming Application Challenge

Daniel shared a programming challenge of a toy train doing a loop. Just for the fun of it what would be your workaround for this type of challenge? Add your suggestions in the DoF thread.



Precise Orientation of a Small Part Detected by the Camera

Glass420 asked for tips and tricks on setting up the Wrist Camera to detect parts under 10% with accurate insertion. Our Integration Coach David_Gariepy shared some useful tips, go take a look!
