New here to the forum and new to ABB robots. Have used FANUC in the past, but still an amateur in the field. Here is my problem:
We are moving a robot at work that performs grit blast, the programs have all been taught using a work object called wobj_spindle. This work object was created a long time ago and nobody knows what it was based off of. I have a tool that locks into the spindle and has two metal tips in the X direction to teach X1 and X2 and a third metal tip to teach the Y direction.
If I teach a new work object with this tool, lets call it wobj_NEW, can I use this as a reference frame for all of my old points that used wobj_spindle and keep the original points in the same location in space? The goal would be to teach the wobj_NEW over again with the tool after the robot and machine have moved so that the rest of the points do not need to be touched up individually.
Is this possible? I know if I change the work object from wobj_spindle to wobj_NEW in my program, the robot DOES NOT go to the same location, or anywhere close. Luckily I planned that would happen and stepped though slowly!
Thanks for any help!
