Tim_Smith tried integrating a SICK safety scanner with a UR5 robot. His goal was to have it go into reduced mode settings as soon as the robot moved across a certain line. However, the robot's transition into the reduced mode is very sudden and creates a jerking motion when crossing the line. Is there a way to create a smooth transition between the normal working settings and the reduced mode settings with Universal Robots? Help out!
mikebeauchemin did an application demo using Robotiq's products and a 3D Laser Scanner from Creaform. The purpose of this application demo was to demonstrate how easy it is to perform a 3D inspection of a plastic part using the whole combined solution of Robotiq, UR and Creaform. See the final results of the demo!
