We have been working with Robotic Automation to add laser sensing capability to Verbotics Weld. Laser sensing uses a laser distance sensor to determine the position of the part, in a process similar to touch sensing. The advantage of using a laser is there is no wire to cut prior to sensing, and wire related issues such as a bent wire are no longer a problem.

We have partnered with Canmec to develop a FANUC TP translator for Verbotics Weld. This will enable Verbotics Weld to output robot code directly to FANUC robots. Last week Canmec began live testing on production parts with code generated with Verbotics Weld, marking a significant milestone for this project. Initial FANUC support has been added to Verbotics Weld version 0.

Today we have released Verbotics Weld 0.8 with support for laser sensing, in-progress support for Fanuc robots and many other improvements. As always, you can download the latest release from the download page or by checking for updates within Verbotics Weld. The first major new feature is the addition of laser sensing.
