Hello guys,

I am using a weld gun on a 7th axis. It seems like someone has already set it up. I have no experience in using a weld gun. My experience is all with pick and place.

To open the gun I am using a Jog command with a group 2 and a position of -127.271
This seems to work Fine.

I was also using this method for closing the gun for cap changing and some other things.

I see in the program a Press_motion P=[1,1] I can run this and it will close the gun and its good. Im assuming this is a close to force type of thing.

What I am trying to do is understand how this works, how much force Im applying. Also When I try to close on a block of wood "for testing" I keep faulting out.  I am assuming because of the thickness of the wood.

I am trying to come into a cap dresser and I want to make sure Im closing to the correct force and holding it

According to their writing, I understand that the welding equipment is defined as an extra axis. To understand how this system works, you need to take a closer look. Resource systems that can be entered through robot menus are usually introduced in two different ways. First of all the values ​​of the robot "Data,Register". All the parameters related to the source can be found there, and the second method is to use the "Func, Grup2" option or when you are in the "setup" menu or directly in the normal program. related parameters. I think that this problem can not produce a healthy solution without knowing the system in detail.
