Supportive apps

Constantly evolving and dynamic production environments pose the challenge to economically efficiently adapt automation processes to products’ modifications. With Panda, and the Apps from this bundle, a process like screwing no longer requires ad hoc integration and highly-trained personnel to be implemented and adapted within your production line. Not only these Apps make the set up of screwing solutions easy and convenient, but they were also designed and developed to guarantee sensitive alignment and insertion of the screws, as well as to apply steady forces while tightening and loosening them.

Approach the screw feeder and pick the screw. With this App, this phase of the automation screwing process can be intuitively and quickly set up. The App is designed and developed to make the best out of Panda’s sensitivity and its ability to interpret force contacts, in order to adapt the strategy until successful picking of the screw.

Teach Panda the position of the screw holes and how to approach them to initiate screwing. This App leverages on Panda’s ability to detect contacts and modulate its compliance, to achieve successful alignment and insertion of the screws.

Use this App to automate unscrewing processes. Teach Panda the positions of the screws, and the robot will sensitively apply the desired motion and force to loosen and remove the screws, as well as monitor on task success during execution.
