Programmed path reached (BCO) during Powermill krl program execution in KSS 5.6.12

  • Hello,

    Trying to implement effective connection between Kuka KR210L150, KRC2, KSS 5.6.12 and Powermill Robot software.

    Programmed path reached (BCO) is common problem in execution of Powermill krl program in AUT mode. The simulation in Officelite and Kuka Simpro, shows that the robot goes from home position to the first point of the Powermill programmed path, when the Programmed path reached (BCO) note is shown in message window. After pressing the forward button, the robot continue to move following the programmed path (Lin moves) for a while with reduced speed, when BCO note is shown again and so on.

    Waiting for help in solving this

    common problem in execution of Powermill krl program in AUT mode (not in AUT EXT).

    Many thanks in advance!

  • so.... what is the exact problem? that message is displayed?

    do you know reason for BCO?

    that is correct and expected.

    neither of this is expected. there should be only ONE message that BCO is reached... unless of course there is a reason for another BCO. Normally this means that you moved robot off the programmed path (using jog) or you did a block selection....

    1) read pinned topic: READ FIRST...

    2) if you have an issue with robot, post question in the correct forum section... do NOT contact me directly

    3) read 1 and 2

  • BCO has to exsists only once (after reaching the first programmed path point) is true, as well as is true that there is a reason of continiuselly provoking BCO notification. The robot has not been moved off the programmed path using jog. Probably, upgrading the robot geometry with the imported custom spindle in Kuka simpro was the reason of continiuselly provoking BCO notification.

    So far, effective execution of Powermill Robot programmed path with Kuka robot can be done without any correction in the program files.
