This checkbox is used to allow for automatic uploading of patterns from a USB-stick onto the robot. The checkbox is not checked by default. By checking it, all JSON-files in the root folder of the most recently plugged in USB-stick will be uploaded to the patterns storage directory folder on the robot.
Manually upload patterns from USB
This button can be used to upload patterns from a plugged in USB-stick to the patterns storage directory on the robot. It is only possible to use this feature if the ‘Automatic upload of patterns’ is disabled.
The first window that appears once the program is run, is the ‘Pattern Selection’-window (as shown below). Start a new pallet
Select product by name
Press ‘Start Program’-button
Palletize until program stop
Select the pattern that is going to be palletized in the ‘Pattern Selection’-window and press the ‘Start Program’-button to start the palletizing process.
Once the robot has palletized at least one box on a pallet, and the program is stopped then restarted; then the ‘Continue existing pallet’-window is opened (as shown below). This window shows the progress on the current pallet.
To change the current palletizing pattern, this is done by clicking the ‘Change Pattern’-button.
Once this button is clicked, the ‘Pattern Selection’-window is opened. Once a pattern is selected in this window and the ‘Start Program’-button is pressed, then the current palletizing process is reset and the newly chosen pattern is run.
You need to remember to have empty pallets before doing this, because Pally will begin palletizing on a empty pallet.
