A very important aspect of this system is the virtually unlimited number of possible functions ─ pick and place, drilling, coating and quality check are just some examples.
The final user can equip an industrial automation robot with tools to adapt it to the working environment, such as scanners, high definition cameras, drill bits, pliers etc. ― depending on the assigned task ― and these tools can be interfaced with the supervisor and control system, thus making the software-machine combination more versatile and fully operational in any situation.
The adaptability of the system
To perform automated tasks ― e.g.: pick and place or fixing screws ― the robot follows pre-set coordinates.
If one or more coordinates shouldn’t match with the landing point, the robot can be manually maneuvered and memorize the new parameters; this way the system will automatically know where the landing point for the robot’s tool is.
Being able to manually insert new coordinates ― and to save them as new instructions for future operations ─ makes the whole system 100% adaptable to any variation on the working routine, without sacrificing its capabilities.
The robot can also benefit from Ferrazza remote assistance, to help during the installation and the initial programming phases, using any type of Internet connection.
