I had already done a Pick and Place Robot with Exit Strategy and using Methods for both the Exit Strategy and Target (for the Pick and Place Robot). I wanted to replicate that in this model. I want RobotC to take it from Laser to OptionalGage to Buffer. Then I want the RobotC to wait while the product goes through to TackDE by itself. Then I want RobotC to take the product again and move it to BufferingConv. I tried to use a similar technique but it doesn't work. I also tried to code Laser differently but it didn't work so I commented it out. Is there something about wanting the robot to wait that is causing a problem? Or am I somehow using the Buffer tool wrong? I've attached the example below and the code I used for each of the methods. I put MLaser in the Exit Strategy for Laser, MOptionalGage for OptionalGage, MTackDE for TackDE, and MRobotC in the Target area for RobotC. Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think you can set the destination of RobotC to BufferingConv since that is not connected to RobotC with a connector.
I have attached a model where I also implemented something similar to what is shown in your picture. I think the issue is that you don`t set the robot to move to your "TackDE" station. You can take a look at the entrance and exit strategies in the stations and the robot in my model. Once you start using an exit strategy to move a MU between stations using a robot, it is better to set every destination for that robot for every station that is using an exit strategy involving this robot.
