Just registered on the forum! I am a research engineer tasked with setting up our new FANUC robots, specifically the models M3ia-6S and M3ia-6A, which are expected to arrive in our Lab in the coming weeks. These robots will be used in different pilot production lines, primarily focused on pick-and-place tasks for objects moving on conveyors.
In order to become better acquainted with the world of FANUC robotics, I've experimented a bit with ROBOGUIDE which will be our go-to software for programming these robots. Basic stuff actually, simple pick and place programs. However, I've noticed that the available tutorials and visual resources are somewhat limited, and the manuals, while comprehensive, can be quite overwhelming with their sheer volume of information.
From what I’ve seen so far, I’ll also need to get familiar with iRPickTool. Reading another another thread in this forum I did find some guidance on learning iRPickTool (registration on myfanuc.eu and a couple of relevant youtube channels), though I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions or resources you can provide with to help me learn and practice using this tool effectively.
Moreover, I've been pondering the possibility of coupling iRPickTool with an in-house developed vision module instead of iRVision. If any of you have experience or insights into such integration, I'd be grateful for your guidance and advice.
Lastly, if you have any pointers, tutorials, or recommendations on how to get started with KAREL programming, please do share.
Please feel free to ask for any clarifications or additional information if needed. If you know of any existing forum threads that might address my questions, kindly point me in the right direction.
Thank you all in advance for your time and assistance!
