We have a tool that is aluminum and at 100% speed, the tool can bend when coming to a stop or sudden quick changes in direction can cause problems. The current solution is to simply lower the speed to 75-85% depending on the program. To help with cycle time, I'm curious if using ACC50 or whatever value at CNT0 or FINE positions would be faster than just lowering the speed. I did a very simple test in Roboguide, and it is "faster". I tried ACC75, 50, 25 as I approached a stopping point, but this was slower than just changing the speed. I haven't done any real world testing yet. Anyone have experience lowering ACC values and if it's worth going that route?
Essentially, I don't want this flimsy terribly designed tool to bend, but I'd like to increase the speed of the robot so that it operates at full speed except any movement that may cause issues. If I end up having to keep a speed override in place, I may override the speed using BG Logic in the form of the code below and setting the speed at certain points by changing the register values. Any ideas will be much appreciated.
