WireTank Plane Editor

TCP positioning made easy

Accurate plane definition is critical  for a repeatable robotic application. The WIreTank Plane Editor URCap offers a more flexible interface to accurately create planes, and leverages  the cobot's built-in torque sensor to  position the TCP, eliminating visual subjectiveness.

• Use a virtual origin for parts with rounded corners.

• Use edges instead of points, when your part doesn’t have a marked origin

• Enter points coordinates, ideal for planes defined within your CAD system or for planes the robot cannot reach, as it is often the case for

safety planes


• Use  incremental moves in programmable steps both for translation and for rotation ​

• Find surfaces or IO sensor limits in all 6 directions relative to the base, tool or any defined plane at programmable speeds 

• Center your tools  in X, or XY directions, ideal for centering a gripper on a circular part 

• Align TCP to any defined plane
