Information about fan displayed by PaintGun

Hey,

I have a question about the PaintGun in Tecnomatix.

2018-01-03 09_42_23-Process Simulate 13.1 - [Stop&Go_alu_ohneVerriegelungen.psz].png

Tecnomatix creates a fan when a PaintGun is opened. The fan is different for different PaintGuns. In my cell the fan does not change with different Brush Values.


From where does Tecnomatix get the information how to display the fan? For example direction, length and radius.

And how can I edit the fan?

 

Best Regards,

Henrik Wilshusen

Hello Henrik,

 

Your Paint Gun is attached to the robot and not mounted. In tool definition of your Paint Gun please define the BASE frame as the mounting frame.

Afterwards, use mount command an mount the Paint Gun onto the robot.

 

Best regards

Hello,

 

In the screenshot you posted, the spray cone looks incorrect.

Something like this looks more correct:

The way you currently use the spray cone is automatically created when paint gun is open between "tcp frame" and "tip frame". There is no way to change the size of this purple spray cone.

But PS includes a Paint Coverage functionality. To use it, you have to define different spray cones, based on 3D geometry, using "Paint Brush Editor".

Before Paint Gun Open command you can select the Brush first and then open.
