Robot on track


I am trying to cordinate the motion of a track and a robot, where the robot is mounted on the track rotated 90 deg around the Z-axis, in other words, the robot x axis is not parallel to the direction of movement of the track. When I specifiy this in the robot's baseframe, this does not affect the coordinated motion of the robot and track (when jogging the track in the Mech status window with "locked TCP" the TCP does not stand still). I also tried to rotate the track's base frame and the combination of the two.

How can I solve this problem?

  • Hello Jan -Jaap,

    To run a robot coordinated on a track with the robot rotated, you should rotate the baseframe of the track. Unfortunately the MechStatusWindow doesn't work correctly when the robot is rotated. But if you create a path and sync it to the controller, the robot should behave correctly. See the attached document (some of the picutres are not correctly for RS 3.1).
