I have stange problems with the Path Template in PS 10.1
We do stud welding with a Tucker gun. The TCP of the gun is about 50mm above the stud, the part is about 25mm above the stud. When I load the program in PS, the location for the stud is inside the part or on the different side of the part.
I´ve wrote a Action for the path template that decrease the Z-Value of the stud location sp that the location locates on the part.
<RobotController Name="Abb-Rapid" Version="All"> <ActionList> <Action Name="REAL-->SIM BolzL-Loc Z+27mm" LocRange="All" LocationTypes="Weld" MotionTypes="1,2" Description="REAL --> SIM \nVerschiebe BolzL-Location in Z-27mm und färbe Änderungen rot"> <MoveLoc RelZ="+27" IgnoreLimitations ="true"/> <Color Value="RED"/> </Action> <Action Name="SIM --> REAL BolzL-Loc Z-27mm" LocRange="All" LocationTypes="Weld" MotionTypes="1,2" Description="SIM --> REAL \nVerschiebe BolzL-Location in Z+27mm und färbe Änderungen grün"> <MoveLoc RelZ="-27" IgnoreLimitations ="true"/> <Color Value="GREEN"/> </Action> </ActionList> <ActionFilter> </ActionFilter> </RobotController>
Sometimes it works, sometimes don´t.
REAL-->SIM BolzL-Loc Z+27mm action was applied on one or more locations/operations (listed below):
b268_LR_c, b460_LR_c, b267_LR_c, b266_LR_c, b265_LR_c, b115_LR_c, b214_LR_c, b213_LR_c, b256_LR_c, b255_LR_c, b114_LR_c, b117_LR_c, b121_LR_c, b259_LR_c, b258_LR_c, b120_LR_c, b116_LR_c, b217_LR_c, b218_LR_c, b122_LR_c, b269_LR_c, b270_LR_c, b271_LR_c, b272_LR_c, b463_LR_c.
[Error] One or more locations (listed below) were not translated or rotated: b267_LR_c, b266_LR_c, b265_LR_c, b115_LR_c, b214_LR_c, b213_LR_c, b121_LR_c, b259_LR_c, b258_LR_c, b120_LR_c, b116_LR_c, b218_LR_c, b269_LR_c.
When I look at the locations, I see that sometimes the orientation or the translated location doesn´t change (see picture below).
Does anone know how to fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is very surprizing. I just copied your template, replaced in the comment the Umlaut by ae or ue (not sure these special characters ares supported in the xml) nad it worked perfectly. I changed the position back and forth and it was always successful.
I think you should try to use the "location manipulator", it should produce same error. I suspect there is something in the data ppreventing some locations to move.
With the location manipulator everything works - I have also removed the Ö´s and ü`s.
I have done a quick pkz with our customsations and a small dummy cell - maybe someone can try to reproduce the problem? Maybe it´s something for an IR...
I can use the function z+27mm, but not Z-27mm - I have no Idea whats the problem. :/
I tested your data in my version (TX12.0TR1), it works well. I can shift +27 and -27, all locations are moved from the initial position in your study. It must be a problem in TX10.1.
Really great that you have tested this - thank you for that!
I think I have to open an IR and annoy the support.
