Go to Setting > Safety and Set a Robot’s Force or Speed #


Scenarios and Purposes #

  1. If your end-of-arm tool is a sharp or dangerous device (e.g., a screwdriver or cutting tool), you can decrease TCP speed to reduce the risk of the robot injuring human operators.
  2. If there is a need for a human operator and the robot to work together at a close distance, you can set TCP Force in ways that allow you to effectively check whether the end-of-arm tool will collide with the operator.
  3. When the robot is manipulated to apply extra force (such as pushing, pressing, or pulling), some joints apply more force than normal and their torque must be adjusted.
