Abb rapid programming help

  1. Sep 30, 2008 #1
    Hello,

    I'm new rapid programing. I currently have an laser engraver mounted to a LRB 2400 with an s4 controller. I have the robot inter-phased to the laser engraver via I/O signals. After every layer the laser lases I'd like to lower the engraver head linearly in the Z direction. The problem I'm having is, I cannot seem to find away to lower the head from it current position. I'd like to make my robot target command variable. (I.e P1, P2, ...)

    Is there a way to make a command like:

    MoveLOffst(currentPosition,0,0,-5) (this command won't work of course, but I'm trying to feather explain my problem)

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks,

    Matt
