Robotiq Finishing Copilot
Automate all finishing processes requiring the robot to bring the finishing tool to the part:
Generate a finishing path in minutes. Program complex finishing trajectories by teaching less than 10 waypoints, even on complex, spherical surfaces. Apply con"&"stant force at each cycle.
Validate the part's position by using reference points on the part. If there’s a slight change, the robot program will automatically adapt to all related parameters.
Automate all finishing processes requiring the robot handling "&"the part against a fixed finishing tool:
Make sure the robot offers a flawless finish over the whole part’s surface by operating with constant speed and force over the external tool center point.
Compensate for external tool wear at any given time, usin"&"g a reference point on the tool to let the robot notice any movement, and automatically adapt all related program parameters.

How does it work?
Finishing Copilot’s Path Generator only needs and handful of waypoints to generate complex finishing trajectories. Teach a flat surface finishing path with only 4 waypoints, a curved surface with 6 and a spherical shape with no more than 9 waypoints.
Finishing Copilot allows you to program an external TCP. It lets the robot know that the finishing tool is external to the robot, unlike most cobot applications. The finishing tasks is then processed with the robot bringing the part to the external TCP.
Finishing Copilot’s contact offset node uses a point on the external tool as a reference to measure wear. With 0.2 mm precision, contact offset validates the tool’s exact position anytime you wish. If there’s a slight change, the robot program will automatically adapt all related parameters.
Software version requiredPolyScope 3.5+ is required to use the latest URCap plugin. If using older version, contact Robotiq support to get previous versions.
