Robot & Hardware Communication

Now that you understand how to set up the communication between the robot and the CNC machine, it's time to control other important components of the automated cell. There is more than one way to control the CNC door and this lesson will guide you through the integration of a pneumatic actuator in order to control it.  We will program the opening using the Input and Output configuration presented previously in the table below.

The automatic vise can also be easily added to an existing CNC machine. The control is similar and based on the same principles.

Watch the next video to learn more about how to select the proper pneumatic components and how to assemble the system. A Robotiq Application Expert will explain how to properly communicate with the various components of the cell.
