Is it possible to load a container using the entrance control of a singleproc? When the Mu arrives at the singleproc, I would like to logically move a container from a buffer station (not attached to anything) to the singleproc and place the mu on it. This way I can maintain a pool of containers in a central buffer station that serve several different flows of singleprocs.
I appreciate your tips.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is there a possibility to use the Assembly station? Mainpart as Container and then when the container is available you place the mu otherwise it will wait till the container is available. Check the sample model.
And to answer your question yes we should be able to move a container and then a mu on it by using Methods/programming.
Unfortunately, I can only open models that are version 12 or under.
Yes, using the assembly station is a possibility and I have chosen to do that. I have ran into the following issues though.
Thanks, however I want to move the container using SimTalk instead of a connection between the buffer and the Assembly object because it will make for a very cluttered frame in my case.
The reason for this is to model tooling fixtures and other resources that stay with MUs for several processes before they are freed. Perhaps there are better ways of doing this.
