VW standard about tool number
« on: June 22, 2016, 04:06:11 AM »
Dear All Vw Forum guys

I have some standard question about vass .

1. how many tools should I use when robot pick part.
For example:before picking part use tool#7 = gripper without part and
after picking part use tool#8 = gripper with par or only use tool #7

2.In vw standard do any document define tool number
for example Punktschwei├čen use tool #1 and #3,Kleben use tool #2 and tool#4,
Handling use tool#7

Many Thanks foliagelx :yesyesyes:

Hey, foliagelx.

I just saw this, and I think you probably have your answers, but I will post it here again, for other people with the same doubt.

1) only one tcp. In your example, only tool 7. In some very, very special cases, you can create a auxiliary tcp for handling the part.

2) tool number is defined normally by the process sequence. If You have, for example, a robot wich pick a part, spot this part in a stationary gun and after apply some glue, your tools/tcps will be #1 for the gripper, #2 for the stationary spot weld gun, and #3 for the glue nozzle.

Dear massula

     Thank you for your answer.Now I have already got the answers.

1) only one tcp. In your example, only tool 7. In some very, very special cases, you can create a auxiliary tcp for handling the part.
According to SAVW standard they use different tools for handing.

2) tool number is defined normally by the process sequence. If You have, for example, a robot wich pick a part, spot this part in a stationary gun and after apply some glue, your tools/tcps will be #1 for the gripper, #2 for the stationary spot weld gun, and #3 for the glue nozzle.
You are right.All tool number is defined by the process sequence and started from #1
