Dual Puma Workcell

  • The Unimation 6 Degree of Freedom PUMA 560 robot was designed to meet the needs of a flexible manufacturing environment and can therefore adapt to a wide range of applications.
  • The original control software has been replaced by the RCCL/RCI system (where RCCL stands for Robot Control C Library).
  • Overall system control is orchestrated by a 266 MHz Pentium computer running QNX real-time operating system. The trajectory control task executes at a high priority, at a fixed sample rate, and is responsible for generating position and current setpoints for the individual joints of the robot(s) being controlled.
