Following Holders

On a machine with FSCUT5000A or 5000B control system, you’re allowed to configure Following Holders, the below shows the steps for it.

  1. Select Specific Axis for Follow Holders.

  1. Configuration

Required Parameters:

         Holder Type: Choose proper Holder Type according to whether the Follow Holder has cylinder in its mechanic structure.

         Common Axis: Select specific following motor for Holder1, 2, 3 and 4, whose basic parameters and Return Origin parameters can be set in Follow Holder.

        Up/Down Parameters: Up and Down Parameters is necessary for Follow Holder with Cylinder. If the Up and Down motion is controlled by triggering one single output, then you just need to configure it for Up output only, and select 0 for Down output.

Holder Down Position Setting

        Down Pos;When main chuck moves to Down Position, the holder starts getting down and if main chuck moves to Limit Position and this holder failed to finish Down motion, TubePro will give an Holder Error and suspend the chuck motion.

        Notes: The Parameters above should be set correctly and properly for each Follow Holder.

Optional Parameters

  1. If you set specific output for Holder Value Output shown below, there will be an output named for this automatically, if it is on, that means Unselect Disable Holder in Manual Debug. And you can turn on or off this output manually as needed.

  1. If XXX is selected, then when Y1 coordinate is less than that of Auto Up Pos, the holder will lift up automatically( If Holder Auto Up Input is set, then these two conditions must be meet simultaneously). After it is triggered successfully, Follow Holder will get up to Reference position, while Cylinder Follow Holder will trigger Up output.

  1. If XXX is selected, then the main chuck will move between Y Down Position and Limit Position in a specific speed which can be automatically calculated by an equation V=90%*(Down Position-Limit Position)/Default OK Time. This speed constriction is only validated during Travel, but not actual cutting and jogging, which can be used to reduced the distance between Y Down Position and Limit Position to enhance Holder utilization and shorten Travel time.

  1. If available limit switches are installed for the Up and Down motion of holders, then you can select corresponding Up Inputinstead of Default OK time.

  1. If available limit switches are installed for the Back and Forth motion of holders, then you can enable corresponding Alarm Input for it. That means, when this input is triggered and the holder hasn’t finished Down motion, then TubePro will gives an error Holder Alarm and stop the chucks. Both Alarm Input and Limit Position are set to prevent the collision between chucks and holders, in which the former is equivalent to hard limit, the former soft limit.

  1. If a holder is controlled by two outputs, for Up and Down respectively, you’re allowed to enable Close Output When OK to turn off corresponding output when Up or Down motion is completed.

Configuration

        If you want to configure Pick-Part Follow Holders, it is necessary to configure Pick-Part methods in Pick-Part, Config Tool.

Follow Holders Calibration

       If Follow Holders are configured in TubePro, then there will be an icon named Holder Follow in the main interface.

       As for the holders between Main chuck and Middle chuck, click Holder Follow to start configuration, while the holders behind Middle chucks, click Assist Unload Holder in the drop-down arrow.

  1. Calibration of the Holders Between Main and Middle Chucks

       Click Holders Follow to start the first calibration.

       Generally the Follow Holders can be applied successfully after the calibration of them is finished once with a rectangular tube.

        Move the main chuck to the position forth to Down Position of Holder 1, click Return Center and finish Single Surface Level with the rectangular tube tightened. Then, click Holder Up, and move the holder close to tube surface by jogging, finally click Calibrate to finish it.

        Rectangular Tube Dimension: A rectangular tube is needed during the calibration, then TubePro will recognize the dimension of the tubes imported automatically.

        B Axis Speed Limit: When Follow status is on, the max speed of B axis will be limited to avoid the collision between the tubes and holder.

        Follow Mode: The holders will adjust its height according to tube rotation.

        Separate Mode: The holders will descend to Reference Position and not adjust its height simultaneously.

Fit

        If the range of holder and motor motion is not linear corresponding relation, you’re allowed to select Enable Non-Linear Pattern, which will offer an equation to fit actual situation by the factors inside.

        In this interface, you can set specific groups of Coordinates and fixed Step Distance, then click Create Table to generate a table with designated groups of data.

        To generate a fitting equation, you need to move the holder up by jogging the Step distance and measure the actual height of holders one by one, then input the results in corresponding blanks.

        Enable Jog and confirm Step distance in TubePro.

         Move the holder in Holder Follow Debug by that arrow.

        When all results are finished and input correctly, click Fit to generate an equation according to current data, finally click OK to save and quit.

Calibration of Holders behind Middle Chuck

        It is necessary to calibrate the Follow Holders for Pick-Part in Assist unload holder, the steps are same to the above.

Set Conditions for Follow Holders

        You’re allowed to select specific conditions to enable Follow Holders in Global Parameters as shown below:

        By these two options, you can choose to enable Follow Holders before tasks or after returning zero.
