Can I connect and control my HAAS CNC Machine with my Universal Robots UR10 teach pendant?
Yes, Robot2CNC allows the user to select and run any program stored on the CNC using a simple URCap program node. Once the program is started, the robot can continue to perform other tasks if needed and when those tasks are completed, the robot can use the Robot2CNC URCap to wait for the CNC to finish. The ability to store the CNC program number in the UR robot reduces setup time and the potential for operator errors the result in CNC crashes.
Additionally, Robot2CNC allows the robot to read and write macro variables on the CNC. Macro variables can be used to allow the robot to communicate with the CNC program or read CNC status variables like coolant level or tool wear offsets.
