Information PkPP6.01

Simulation fails after loading an old RS station or P&G To work around this problem:

* Press the Reset button in the Picking tab (reset simulation).

* Save the station

* Restart the Robot Studio application

* Reload the station

in the Picking tab (reset simulation). * Save the station * Restart the Robot Studio application

New functionality PkPP6.01

Handling of rejected items in simulation Now it’s possible to program and simulate handling of items that are rejected by a camera. When defining a flow, it is possible to select a rejection ratio (%) for incoming items.

Alternatively, rejection can be selected for individual items in a layout flow. Rejection handling also works with recorded flows if the recording was made with PM3.50 or later version.

In simulation, rejected items and containers are marked with a rejection symbol.

Camera spotlight indicates image aquisition.

A camera spotlight indicates image aquisition in Advanced Lighting mode.

To enable, go to the home tab select Graphic Tools, select Advanced Lighting. The spotlight is enabled by default but can be disabled in the Graphics tree view.

Item groups (PDD3705) New programming object:

An item group is a layout of multiple items that is picked or placed as a group with a picking tool.

By defining item groups, the following robot operations can be setup and simulated:

1) Pick an item group, place the item group. 2) Pick multiple items one by one, place the item group. 3) Pick an item group, place the items one by one.

Improvements PkPP6.01

Improved placing Improvements for placing of items in simulation:

Attachment is made to a nearby conveyor belt if a nearby place location is missing. Improved default timing for releasing items when placing. Improved placing in multi layered container patterns.

Default tool mass (PDD3356) Default load has been introduced in tool properties. It is used by default when adding new picking tools.

Default values: Mass = 1.0 kg, center of gravity = 0, 0, 0.1, inertia = 0, 0, 0.

Ignore item orientation (PDD3693) Possibility to ignore the orientation of camera detected items. There is a new item property, Ignore orientation.

When the property is selected, picking of camera detected items will always be made with the same orientation of the robot tool.

As a consequence, the item orientation in the gripper and at the place location will become affected by the actual orientation of the item when being picked up.

Error Corrections PkPP6.01

Outside reach errors on indexed work areas For some combinations of base frames and task frames, the robot would indicate that (reachable) positions were outside reach. The problem was caused by a miscalculated work object and has now been corrected.

Application crashes during simulation Corrections to prevent sporadic application crashes during simulation of large systems with 8-10 robots. Virtual PickMaster 3.50 is required.

Unused work areas or robots Correction to handle simulation of jobs where some work areas or robots are unused.

Possible to use a layout saved in the library Now it’s possible to reuse a layout saved in the library. It can as well be imported into Container patterns.

Container statistics Initial container statistics at simulation start corrected. Container statistics activated for indexed work areas.

The correction requires usage of RobotWare 6.01 or later.

Picking from container patterns Correction to handle picking from multi layered container patterns. Correction in the flow generation of container patterns for picking.

Single placing of multiple products (PDD3705) Correction to simulate single placing of multiple products.

In previous releases the detach position of the items would become wrong

New programming object:

An item group is a layout of multiple items that can be picked and placed as one unit or as individual items. The item group is equivalent to an item. It can be added to container patterns, flows and jobs. The item group can be defined as assembled. An assembled item group can be picked up and placed with a single tool activator. If the item group not is assembled, the items are picked one-by-one. Picking up an unassembled item group requires multiple tool activators or multiple pick operations.

When multiple items shall be picked one-by-one and placed together, the included items are added to the job and selected for picking. Additionally, an item group is defined that represents the place pattern as picked up in the robot tool. The item group is added to the job and selected for placing.
