Configuring Storage Crane - X-Dimension

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hallo All,

 

I`m trying to use the Storage Crane Library v12.0 for the first time. Unfortunately I do not even get past the configuration process.

 

Actually I want to model a portal robot. My MUs are small (Automotive KLT) and my storage position in the portal robot (=crane) are small too. When I`m trying to configure a number of storage positions in x-direction which would lead to a length per position lower 1 m I get the error code:

 

"Zu viele lagerplätze in x" (meaning too many storage positions in x).

In y-direction, this seems no problem.

 

Am I doing a mistake or is this a normal behaviour? If so, any suggestions?

Hello MarcoDe,

 

which type of crane are you using? The StorageCrane or the MultiPortalCrane?

 

Could you please provide a model?

Dear GG,

 

thanks for the quick reply. I`m tying to use the Storage crane.

 

I added my testmodel. Currently it is configured with 7 position in x-direction which makes ca. 1.114 mm per position. If you switch to 8 positions, it goes down to 975 mm per position and the model wont run anymore showing the same error code.

 

In reality I would have 14 positions in x.

 

In y direction this does not seem to be a problem.

 

 

Best Regards Marco

Hello MarcoDe,

 

in the StorageCrane object, the length of a portal is fix defined as 1m. This is tested against the x dimension of one storage place and leaads to the error message.

 

In the attached spp file I modified the length of the portal to 0.5m which is good enough also for 14 places.

 

I run the model and it seems that everything is working well. But be careful, this is not a official version of the staorage crane. If you update your model, the length of the portal will be set to 1m again.

 

I updated your model to the latest version of the Crane library before I did the modifications.

 

For prospective projects we recommend using the MultiPortalCrane. In upcoming version 13.1  of Plant Simulation this crane will also support storing parts in a store object.

 

Hope this will help.

 

Regards
