1. Asynchronous Part-Presence Checking (When the Robots are Too Fast)

    I’ve spent a lot of time working on high-speed line tracking (iRPickTool) applications. When I first started working on them back in 2008, throughputs around 100 cycles per minute were really pushing the envelope (but this was when FANUC’s flagship high-speed picking robot was the M-430iA). Since then FANUC has introduced a number of Delta robots: the M-1iA in 2009, the M-3iA in 2010, the M-2iA in 2013(?) and the DR-3iB in 2019.
