Path Programming and Force Mode
/ Most recent by Alexandre_Pare
We received an interesting question from @NicoHanstein who is experimenting with the path recording for deburring with their spindles.
After programming path, we would like to tell the system to follow the path with a specific (preset) force.
With our spindle we can adjust the force to e.g. 5 Newton with a certain air pressure.
That means, the spindle will not deflect/move to the side before you do not exceed a force to spindle higher than 5N.
However very often the force of 5N can be too strong. In this case it would be good to tell the system/software to apply a maximum force of e.g. 2 Newton.
Is this possible with the system?
The reason for this is that our spindles have limitation when it comes to very low forces against a work piece. Depending on the size and weight of a spindle, we need a certain air pressure to position / center it in the middle. This necessary air pressure results in a minimum force of deflection. With a bigger spindle it can be easily 6 – 8 N.
