User-Friendly Touchscreen Teach Pendant for Novice Robot Users

Radically change the way a robot is programmed with the easy-to-use touchscreen Smart Pendant. Ideal for novice robot users, this pendant simplifies INFORM programming for easy-to-understand operation and fast implementation of the robot system. The Smart Pendant’s intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) accommodates the programmer’s style, and the patented, built-in Smart Frame feature allows the robot to adapt to the operator’s position, eliminating the utilization of coordinate frames and allowing for easy robot jogging.

The Smart Pendant is also well-suited for experienced robot operators looking to reduce programming downtime. Recent software releases extend Smart Pendant functionality, providing powerful control for simple applications such as assembly, injection molding, inspection, machine tending, material handling, and pick and place.
