Programming / Smart Pendant / Smart Pattern

The Smart Pattern extension is a graphical interface for Smart Pendant to quickly generate jobs to handle parts in specific pattern(s). The interface supports common applications that require patterns (i.e. machine loading/unloading, stacking, unstacking, case packing, etc.)

The user simply selects the type of pattern and teaches the handling of the first part. Smart Pattern will then generate a complete robot job to handle all the parts of the pattern. Smart Pattern generates two types of jobs:

  • Pattern: Job defining a specific pattern and how the robot should move to handle each part in the pattern.

  • Supervisor: Job defining which patterns should be used to pick and place parts and the overall flow of the system, including basic I/O.

Typically, at least two patterns are initially generated - one to pick and one to place parts. The user can then create a supervisor job that uses those patterns. If necessary, jobs can be customized by the user to system specific requirements.
