Benefits of using Quick Control and Joystick Control? #



Application better in following scenarios #

  • When it is necessary to watch the movement of the robot TCP and control the fine movement of the robot at the same time, it provides a solution other than the TMflow Controller to operate the robot.
  • Where the current TCP position is far from the target in the environment. Provides an alternative method to the FreeBot for easier robot movement where space is limited or the robot length is too long to hand guide.
  • Where the TMflow Controller window would block TMflow, and it is necessary to open and close the Controller window repeatedly when editing a project and moving the robot. This method can simplify the operation and reduce teaching time.
  • Where there is no screen, keyboard and mouse around.

 The robot is in a limited space and it is hard to hand guide the robot using FreeBot

How to connect and setup? #

  • Quick Control: Use Robot Stick to operate, not require additional connection and setup.
