Advice for animation

Does anyone have advice for animating a part being moved by a pick and place robot? Like, advice on what kind of mates should the part that's being picked up by the robot should have. What if the robot would rotate the part?


I'm running into a problem where I can't decide what mates I should have on the part. If I should mate it to stationary object or to the robot. Is there a possibility to have the part mated to robot end of arm tooling for certain period of animation and then when it's droped off change mates to stationary object?


Any advice on best practices where one robot hands over part to different robot would be great.
