HOTWIRE CUTTER KUKA
« on: January 16, 2019, 07:44:55 AM »
i am using hot wire cutter on KUKA 30/60. everything runs smoothly in grasshopper simulation, however i don't know how to set up my tool in the robot control pad
in the robot control panel, start-up calibrate -tool- numeric tool - tool number 6) then I only input the Z value same as the one I have in the grasshopper definition, however robot does not follow the path requested.
any help

Hello,

In order to have simulation and reality match you need to make sure that the tool's number and XYZABC values are identical and that the tool is mounted the same way on the virtual as well as on the actual robot. That is usually easiest to check at the start position of a job, as the robot will stop there anyway with the BCO reached message.

Also, make sure that the base values match as well!

Best,
Johannes
