Re: Original by-line mislead me

Actually, that makes perfect sense, GTOlover. If it's made to run fast, it should certainly do well running fast. At the manufacturing show in Philly last month, I saw some robots that moved mind-numbingly fast.

Original by-line mislead me

I read the by-line and immediately thought, "Another story about running a robot slow to keep it from wearing out or breaking." But it seems your isue was the timing of the weld gun in relation to the robot motion.

But to my first point, I have always wondered why technicians (most notably the maintenance guys) want to run a robot (servo robot no less) at a greatly reduced speed? I understand that end of arm tooling weight has some factor in this, but if the robot program allows you to run fast, then I expect the robot to be designed to handle this speed. If it wears out or breaks, that is the manufacturer of the robot issue. I figure if the manufacturer didn't want it to fall apart from running fast, they should of limited the maximum speed that I can set!
