Robotstudio/baseframe help needed - £2000 reward
Moderators - I trust I'm not impinging on any forum rules here, I'm effectively simply looking for some freelance work.
Our issue is simply moving the base frame in RobotStudio.
The controller is IRC5. The robot is IRB5500, but that is not relevant really.
In our paint spray room, we have made our own slide that the robot is mounted on, so the actual robot can move back and forth along the wall in the spray booth.
This slide is pneumatic. It is a standard fixed stroke air cylinder. There is no intermediate position of any kind. A robot output turns an air valve on and the robot slides out to the end of the cylinder stroke, turn the output off and cylinder and robot slides back. Very simple and straight forward.
Our problem is in RobotStudio.
We have drawn out the slide and created a mechanism and attached the robot to it. No problem. We can then jog our mechanism and the robot moves on the mechanism correctly…… but the base frame does not move.
We need the base frame to move with the mechanism, as it does in real life.
We can see that the base frame can be moved in RS if it is attached to an external axis, but that axis seems to have to be an integral robot controlled servo 7th axis. You cannot move the base frame on a mechanism.
So, in RobotStudio, how can we move the robot on our air slide mechanism and have the base frame move with it?
I have slightly simplified the slide to make it easier to understand. In reality, we have 3 air cylinders which give us 5 fixed positions and a total travel distance of 4.8m.
We manufacture long and thin pallets and ladders up to 6m long.
Currently in RS, our work around is that we move our work piece on the slide, leaving the robot and its base frame static, but its not ideal.
I'm hoping, if you are a robotstudio guru, that you will see whether its possible or not, in principle, pretty quickly. If you can solve our problem in an hour, good on you, easy money. If it takes a Sunday of your weekend in a dark room to "get your head around it", its still good money and I will still be grateful
Thank you. Its perhaps a strange approach, but we are hitting a brick wall now
