Movement of the robot

Hello people,

I'm trying to configure a conveyor tracking system. My question turns around the movement of the robot in robot studio versus quickteach.

When there is a conveyor tracking system robot's base frame is turned 90? respect world frame. if so, that it is true because I can check it in MOC.cfg, why If I move the robot via robotstudio/mechanismStatus"  there is no difference between moving the robot respect robot's base frame or world frame? why  does "X" direcction is the same one for both frames (world and base)?

If I move the robot from quickteach the movement is right! i mean that between axis "x" from base frame and "axis "x" from world frame there are 90? degrees!

What is going on?

Thank you very much in advanced,

Jordi Santisteve

    Hi,



    If the baseframe is rotated 90 deg. in the VirtualController, you have
    to rotate the robot model in RobotStudio 90 deg. The reason is that the
    robot model must match the baseframe in the VC. When you rotate the
    robot, use Modify-Rotate or Modify-Position, do not use Modify-Position
    Robot World.

  • Thank you very much Anders, now it is time to simulate conveyour tracking and translate programs from tralfa to IRB5400! If I have problems I will post these.

    Thanks and best regards,
