What's trending on DoF this week? Offline programming on a UR, PCB manipulation, Robotiq Gripper as a hand tool holder, how to lock and protect programs for copyrights and much more. Get the latest news from automation Pros. 

Many hot topics were discussed this week on DoF. Pros are still sharing their experience about offline programming on a UR. Various software were used such as ArtiMinds, Solidworks, OnShape and RoboDK. Take a look at these Pros who shared their insights on the topic. If you tested any of these software or any other share your experience as well. 


Another discussion about PCB manipulation got traction again this week. Electrostatic discharge is an important problem when working with electronic components just like PCB. Also get information on how to avoid any risk related to ESD and if Universal Robots can work in sensitive applications. Did you use the Gripper in an ESD sensitive application?Figure-3.5.2.jpg

Great videos were shared of various applications using the Robotiq Gripper as a hand tool holder.  You will see the 2-Finger Gripper used in deburring, polishing, aluminium tapping, assembly and drilling applications. If you have any videos of the Gripper being used as a hand tool holder share them with the other Pros



Another interesting discussion emerged on DoF. A Pro has a customer who wants to lock their programs so that their knowledge does not get copied when selling an application. A solution that was proposed was to encrypt the scripts. Do you have any other idea in mind? If so, share it with us here
