TwinCAT® Kinematic Transformation software now extends its standard machine sequencing and motion control capability to Delta- and SCARA-type robot mechanisms. This eliminates the need for a dedicated robot controller, the associated software and handshaking routines in applications that require a robot to handle part loading/unloading tasks. Because the robot control is in the same controller, the robot movements can be tightly coordinated with non-robotic motion such as conveyors and other moving mechanisms. The PC-based control platform unites PLC, motion control and robotics all on one multi-tasking hardware and software platform, the co. states.
