Skills are to robots what apps are to phones. They accelerate robot programming by providing ready-to-use, downloadable robotic programs. They extend the built-in capabilities of the robot with a broader variety of specialized tasks.
Every Skills package includes a complete program to download on a USB key, a step-by-step procedure describing how to use the application itself, and a demonstration video. Skills are free for all users of Robotiq Plug & Play components or Insights subscribers.
Automation engineers can download and reuse skills instead of teaching or programming a complex robotic task that has already been solved.
Once the Skill is installed, activate it by inserting a Script node and call the Skill from the functions menu. Your robot is now able to do more, increasing precision, repeatability and overall productivity.
