I am new in robot programming (I'm PLC programmer). I have a few questions on you.
My gripper enters to tight space in measuring station where clamps a part.
Sometimes can happen that gripper can't clamp the part (GripperSpot-Tech error with stop program). Then operator should stop automatic cycle and EXT mode for restart program. I am pretty sure, if SAK movement to HOME starts from this area then gripper damage the measuring station.
What is your idea for solution to avoid a mistake by machine operator?
2) During robot movement to measuring station I would like to send to master controller (PLC) signal "ROBOT TOOL IS INSIDE THE AREA". This signal should block the measuring station movements. When robot tool leave the dangerous area signal should reset for enable the measuring station.
What is your ideas for realizing?
Thank you very much for your suggestion.
