Tool change operation

Hey,

Is there any way to implement a mount/unmount of a tool in an operation, so i can effectively change tools in the simulation?

Kind regards,
Maxime

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

As usual in PS, there are even several ways.

If the robot-program does not define it, the robot will use the tool assigned to the robot-operation.

If the tool needs to be dropped, use detach/attach-events on your operation.

The better way is to control this in the robot-program. There are mount/unmount commands available, that will not appear later in the downloaded program.

Hi Guido,

Thanks for the quick answer. I'm new to the program (using it for school).
I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by RobotExperty, but i'll figure it out.

Kind regards,
Maxime
