How to make the robot uses axis 6 more than 4?!!

I have an IRB 1200 and during a special task, when program it to go to a certain point and orientation, it reaches the -270 degree limitation on the Axis 4, while there is still a lot more room for axis 6 to do the same task. I set both ConfJ  & ConfL  \Off  but still not working.
anybody can help with that?


  • If it is possible for the robot to reach the targets by rotating axis 6 in preference to axis 4 you would need to manually select the axis configurations - easy to do in RobotStudio as it will give you the available options with the rotation of each axis (in the home tab/graphical environment).

    You may also using the axis configuration wind axis 4 to plus 270° (or as close as possible) before starting this particular set of movements?

  • In this case you would actually want ConfJ ON, and as Graeme said, make sure that you have the correct axis configurations stored in the robtarget.  You might also use MoveAbsJ.
