Tool/Pay Load Vrs Holding Load


Is there a difference between the Payload of a tool and how much force the robot can resist when it is still. What is the terminology for this force ? 

For example we want to use the robot with a pneumatic cylinder at the end of it.

It's for an ultrasonic application and when the robot comes to a point we will extend the cylinder which will push against the robot in its current position.

    I guess you could use the load data for this purpose.

    Create a load data for the amount of force you are expecting (converted back to kg) and then use the RAPID command GripLoad when you extend the cylinder.
