You don’t need a robotics background to use Finishing Copilot. Its intuitive programming interface guides you through the steps to set up an efficient finishing application.
The contact offset node uses a point on the external tool as a reference to measure wear. Contact offset validates the tool’s exact position anytime you wish. If there’s a slight change, the robot program automatically adapts all related parameters.
Program complex finishing trajectories by teaching fewer than 10 waypoints. Whether it’s on a flat (4 waypoints), curved (6 waypoints), or spherical (9 waypoints) surface, Finishing Copilot generates a complete path and applies consistent force at each cycle.
Finishing Copilot lets you program an external TCP. This tells the robot that the finishing tool is external to the robot, unlike in most cobot applications. The finishing task is then processed with the robot bringing the part to the external TCP.
The contact offset node uses reference points on the part to validate its position. If there’s a slight change, the robot program automatically adapts all related parameters.
