What is the result of adding two positions registers that have different turn counts or different configurations? can this even be done?
I have a machine tending program with many pick locations. I am using one position register for the current pick position, and every time a part is picked, I add a x and y offset (via additional PR's) to the "current_pick_position" PR that the program goes to for every pick. (i.e.- I programmed what I believe to be my own palletizing function).
Originally I had a bunch of limit errors that were confusing, and I just ignored them by using L moves instead of J (to avoid dealing with turn counts) to move above the pick point.
Now that I have finally begun to understand how turn counts work, I am going back to the J moves, and seemingly need to create conditional statements which change the turn count of the "current_pick_position" PR based on what pick spot is up next. It would be great if I could accomplish this via addition of PR's.
Any help or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Sadly purchasing the palletizing option is not feasible.
