SYSTEM 10

Care should be taken when unloading from truck. Because the System 10 is an integrated system
with minimal end-user set-up, components such as light towers and control buttons are mounted on
the outside of the cell and may be exposed and unprotected.

A typical System 10 weighs approximately 2550 lbs. See figure below for approximate system
center of gravity. Be sure to use forklift with appropriate capacity.

These figures assume the system is shipped with a Power Wave 455.

Lagging to Floor

The System 10 should be securely lagged to the floor before any robot programming is performed.
Programmed points may need to be re-taught if the system is lagged after programming. Before
lagging to floor, the System 10 should be shimmed in order to minimize frame deflection and
twisting. Lag pads are welded to the frame in several positions. A thru hole is provided for
customer supplied lag bolts. The threaded hole on the lag pad is used for leveling the system. See
below for lag pad locations:

Table Surface / Mounting Tooling

The System 10 table surface is shown below. The surface is 1/4 sheet with 2 x 2 structural tubing
for support. Although the table surface is reasonably flat and rigid, it is not a machined surface.
Additional support can be added by means of a customer supplied base plate. No pre-drilled hole
patterns exist. If many tooling changes are expected, it is recommended that a common base plate
with tapped holes and dowel holes be used (fixed to table tops) to facilitate in tooling changes.
Lincoln Electric Automation can assist in a robot reach analysis to determine appropriate placement
of parts and fixtures to maximize robot operating space. Before fixing tooling to table, it is
recommended that the customer verify that the robot can reach all welds.

System 10 Special Quick Mastering Procedure

With a normal position of the robot in the System 10, the robots J1 zero position will be at zero
degrees. This ensures that the torch will not collide with any System 10 fencing or peripherals.
Follow the procedure on the next page. If the robot has been mounted in a non-traditional position,
then the zero mastering position of the robot may be different from zero degrees. See the graphic
below for illustration:

SYSTEM 10

RIA Operating Space

The System 10 is an RIA compliant cell as shipped from LECO. To maintain compliance, it is the
end-users responsibility to train all operators, maintenance personnel, and all other personnel
involved with the system. Special attention should be given to pinch points. In order to comply
with RIA regulations regarding pinch points, the System 10 can be taught in the T1 or T2 mode. It
is also imperative that the maintenance door be closed during teaching and Automatic Playback
Verification (i.e. APV). You can teach with the pneumatic screens down; however torch and robot
clearance must be verified prior to running in automatic production mode.

SYSTEM 10

System 10 Operation

The System 10 is a standard robotic welding cell that incorporates two weld zones of operation.
The two-zone design provides a flexible base for automating small and medium sized parts. The
compact, fully integrated cell features a comparatively large work area ready to receive a variety
of parts. System design features two, large metal pneumatic pop-up shields positioned on either
side of the ArcMate100iB/6S robot for maximum ergonomic efficiency as an operator loads and
unloads parts in the two separate work areas. The System 10 has been designed to meet
ANSI/RIA 15.06-99 specifications for workcell safety. The workcell enclosure provides a
complete cell barrier with a solid sheet metal weld flash barrier. This cell is configured with an
integrated palm station complete with operator controls and status indicating pilot lights.

Modes of Operation

The System 10 has two modes of operation that the operator will use to interface with the robot.
These modes consist of a Program Mode and an Auto ( Production ) Mode. Refer to Table 1 to
verify each condition that must be set in order to achieve a certain mode of operation. Refer to
Figures 1 through 4 on page-24 to view pictures of the items discussed in Table 1.

Program Mode - The mode that a programmer will use to create or touch-up welding programs
and program system peripheral devices. This mode will also be used for system start-up and
various maintenance procedures.

Auto Mode - The mode used for production via the two front access doors for loading and
unloading parts. Auto Mode is disabled when the maintenance door is open.

Program Mode

To operate in Program Mode, the conditions must be met that have been established in Table 1.
Prior to programming, verify that a Tool Center Point (TCP) has been established; refer to the
"Start-Up and Installation" section of the manual. This mode will be used to program all parts
and peripheral devices, as well as touch up existing programs. Review sample programs for
programming examples and sequence.

Auto (Production) Mode

To operate in the Auto Mode, the conditions must be met that have been established in Table 1.
This will be the normal operating mode of the system. After all parts are programmed and welds
have been examined to meet specifications, the welding cell can be setup for continuous operation
of the production cycle.

For example, after a part is loaded into Station 1, press and release the cycle start pushbutton.
The zone shield will close. The robot will begin the welding sequence. While the robot is welding
the part at Station 1, the zone shield at Station 2 will open indicated by the green light and parts
can be loaded into Station 2. Press and release the cycle start pushbutton for Station 2 and the
zone shield will close. When the welding cycle at Station 1 is complete, the robot will start the
welding cycle at Station 2. The amber light at Station 2 will be on, and the green light at Station 1
will be on. Unload and reload Station 1 and the process continues. If the robot faults during
welding, simply turn the fault reset switch to the reset position and wait for the fault to clear, then
press and release the cycle start push button. The robot will resume the program from the point of
fault.

Sample Programs

During assembly of the System 10 five basic programs are written for use during production. The
five programs are as follows; with actual robot teach pendant screen prints.

1. HOME :Safe point for robot
2. RSR0001 :Designated program
3. RSR0002 :Designated program
4. ZONE 1 :Program for Zone 1
5. ZONE 2 :Program for Zone 2

The HOME program is a one-line program that positions the robot at the center of the J1 axis, and
back on the J2 axis in a safe position, indicated by both green lights being on. This is a safe
condition, and the access doors may be opened.

Robot Service Request (RSR) is a request for service from an external device (palm station or
PLC). That request is a dedicated input to the robot. RSR0001 is referenced to Station 1 and
RSR0002 is referenced to Station 2.

SYSTEM 10
Safety Network

Safety features have been integrated into the design of this system. Any attempt to defeat, modify,
or change those features could result in injury.

The System 10 has a detailed safety circuit that is always active in the Auto (production) mode.
There are five basic components to the safety fence circuit: the Front Access Zone Shield
Switches, Station 1 Limit Switch, Station 2 Limit Switch, the Maintenance Door Switch, and
Robot Home Switch. The purpose of the fence circuit is to protect the operator from injury caused
by robot movement.

The operator may access a zone to load or unload parts only when the robot is at the opposite
station or in the home position, otherwise a fault condition will occur and the robot motion will
stop. When the safety network is faulted, the system can be reset with the fault reset switch.
Refer to the Error Recovery section for a complete description.

Error Recovery

Lowering a zone shield while the robot is at that station will cause a fault condition to occur
indicated by the red indicator light. To recover; raise the shield via the teach pendant and activate
the fault reset switch.

To recover from an error during production, first determine the fault and correct if necessary.
Once the fault is corrected, verify all conditions are satisfied for the AUTO mode, activate the
FAULT RESET switch on the palm station, wait for the red light to go out on the light tower, and
then press and release the cycle start pushbutton. The robot will continue from its current position
to the next programmed point.

VERIFY PROGRAM IS AT PROPER LINE.

For example: A fault occurs during a welding routine and the operator identifies the fault on the
Teach Pendant as an ARC START FAILURE. The following steps must be followed to recover:

1. Actuate the FAULT RESET Switch on the palm station.
2. Wait for the alarm to clear and the red light to go out.
3. Press and release the CYCLE START pushbutton.
4. Observe robot recover and restart welding routine.
5. Return to normal operation.

Indicator Status

The System 10 has integrated light towers above the operator palm stations to provide necessary
status lights to the operator. The towers are necessary because the operator may not have a clear
view into the cell, so the towers act as an external interface. Refer to Table 2 and Figure 5 for a
description of the light tower.

SYST-015 WARN Robot Service Request failed
Cause:
RSR operation has failed by some reason. The most likely cause is an improper mode on the
controller key switch. A missing, or incorrectly labeled program could also be at fault.
Remedy:
Refer to the error cause code. Use MENU to display the Alarm Log screen.

Power Wave Related Faults

ARC-045 Weld EQ Device is OFFLINE
Cause:
The PW455 has not yet established communication with the robot or there is a communication
problem.
Remedy:
If this fault can not be reset after a few moments pause between powering up the system, check
for proper connection of the Arclink cable connected between the robot Devicenet board and
PW455 Arclink connector. There are two wires in the Arclink cable; one white and one black.
There should be continuity between pin A on the PW455 amphenol connector and the black wire
on the Devicenet board and pin B on the PW455 amphenol and the white wire on the Devicenet
board. If connections are sound, the Devicenet board may be faulty. Also, check the status light
and note the error code that is being flashed. When calling for assistance, this code will be useful
in diagnosing the problem.

Welding Wire Will Not Inch
Cause:
Most likely the water cooler is not turned on or supplying proper flow.
Remedy:
Check the water cooler and make sure it is on. If a water flow sensor is used, confirm connections
to contacts 9 & 11 of the terminal strip located on the outside front of the PW455. As a
troubleshooting aid, you can jumper pins 9,10, and 11 of the terminal strip (located on the lower
front of Power Wave) and check to see if machine operates normally (please see PW manual for
terminal strip pin functions).

Torchmate Appendix

The Torchmate option provides a cost effective, easy-to-use solution for automatic adjustment of
the Tool Center Point (TCP). Torchmate automatically compensates for bent torch barrels and worn
contact tips to reduce weld defects and increase system productivity.

When you use Torchmate, you start with a system that is fully functional and has a properly defined
TCP. Then, you set up Torchmate and master the TCP. After it is mastered, Torchmate can be used
at any time to check and adjust the TCP to compensate for problems such as a bent torch body.
Since Torchmate is an executable program, it can be called either automatically (for example, every
50 production parts) or manually, whenever desired.

When setting up Torchmate, the following procedures must be accomplished for proper option use.

1. Install the touch block on a stationary object in the robot workcell.
2. Set up Torchmate tool frame.
3. Calibrate the Torchmate TCP.
4. Add Torchmate information to a program.

Touch Block Installation

1. Install the touch block on a flat, level surface well within the workcell. Allow space within the
work envelope for a 250mm "edge search" along the robot WORLD x and y direction, and
within the robot workcell.
2. Align the touch plant so that the edges are parallel to the robot WORLD frame. The touch place
x, y, and z axes should be parallel to the robot x, y, and z axes.
a. Loosen the M5 bolts until the touch plate moves freely.
b. On the teach pendant, press the COORD key until you have selected the WORLD
coordinate system.
c. Adjust the touch plate until its edges are parallel to the robot WORLD frame. Jog the
robot along the edges to check the alignment of the touch plate. It should be parallel to
the WORLD frame to within 0.5 mm from end to end.
d. Tighten the M5 bolts to secure the touch plate.
e. Verify the alignment of the touch plate. It should be parallel to the WORLD frame
within 0.5 mm from end to end.

Set up of Tool Frame (TCP)

1. Refer to the TCP section of this manual for a detailed procedure to enter the TCP.
2. For the System 10, the torch head must be configured such that the right side of the torch faces
towards the rear of the cell. Use the following robot angles as a general guideline.

J1 = 90 J2 = 45 J3 = -55
J4 = 60 J5 = -60 J6 = 0

Torchmate Calibration

After you have defined the Torchmate tool frame, you must calibrate the tool center point (TCP).
You must do this to establish the Torchmate master TCP.

You do not always need to recalibrate the TCP when you replace a worn-out torch with an
identically new one. If the new torch is nested in the mount exactly like the original torch, then
recalibration is not necessary.

1. Select the Torchmate tool frame and move to the origin.
a. Press MENU.
b. Select SETUP.
c. Press F1, [TYPE].
d. Select Frames.
e. If tool frames are not displayed, press F3, [OTHER], and select Tool Frame. If F3,
[OTHER], is not displayed, press PREV. You will see a screen similar to the following.

find the master positions and then move back to the reference position.

Programming Torchmate

Performing Torchmate adjustments can be accomplished by either of the two methods described
below:

Manually, by running the TM_ADJST macro.
Automatically, by incorporating the Torchmate adjustment instruction into a teach pendant
program.

Manual operation
1. Confirm that the welding torch is causing the problem.
2. Select the Torchmate adjustment program, TM_ADJST.
a. Press SELECT.
b. Press F1, [TYPE].
c. Select All or Macro Programs.
d. Move the cursor to TM_ADJST and press ENTER.
3. Verify that the robot has a clear path to the touch block.
4. Place the robot in 100% override.
5. Press and hold the SHIFT and FWD keys while the robot runs the adjust routine.

Automatic operation
Torchmate can be configured to operate within a production program or auto operation connected to
the User 1 pushbutton on the control panel. Torchmate instructions included in production programs
will add time to production cycles and possibly over use the Torchmate option. It is recommended
to run Torchmate after any torch maintenance or collision. It will be helpful to run the option at the
beginning of any shift change as well. This will confirm accuracy of the system prior to the creation
of production parts.

Robot Payload and Collision Guard


1. Before setting up the payload of a robot for use with the Collision Guard option, using the
automatic method, the Payload ID option must first be installed in the robot. Payload ID can
be installed using one of two methods:

A. Install the Torch Guard option which includes the Torchmate, Collision Guard, and
Payload ID options.
B. Install the Collision Guard and Payload ID options as two separate options.

2. Obtain the Fanuc factory test and inspection sheets which ship with the robot. Note at the
bottom of first sheet is a section labeled Torque Margin Data. There are four system variable
files shown in this section. Make note of two of these files:

$PLCL_GRP[ 1 ] . TRQ_MGN[ 5 ]
$PLCL_GRP[ 1 ] . TRQ_MGN[ 6 ]

There will be a value after each of these two files. This value will be keyed into the
appropriate system variable in the next step.

3. Power up the robot in the standard manner. Press Menus key, 0-next page, cursor to line 6

Collision Guard

The Collision Guard option provides a highly sensitive method to detect that the robot has
collided with an object and then stops the robot immediately. This helps to minimize the potential
for damage to the end-of-arm tooling and robot.

Collision Guard also helps to prevent damage during teaching.

The ability to disable the option selectively allows you to use it when some disturbances are
applied to the robot, as long as you can predict in your program when these disturbances will
occur.

Collision Guard is in effect both during jogging motion and programmed motion whenever it is
enabled.

There are several ways to configure and adjust Collision Guard:

The Collision Guard Setup screen allows you to enable and disable Collision Guard globally,
for both programmed motion and jogging motion.
In addition, you can use this screen to adjust the sensitivity of collision detection for
programmed motion.
Collision Guard automatically uses more sensitive limits for jogging motion. These limits can
not be adjusted. You can still disable Collision Guard for jogging motion, using the Collision
Guard SETUP screen.
Within a teach pendant program, you can disable Collision Guard locally through the use of
special teach pendant instructions, COL DETECT OFF and COL DETECT ON.

Collision Guard Adjust Macro

You can use the Collision Guard Adjust macro program, CG_ADJST, to set the Collision Guard
sensitivity during program execution. You must use the CG_ADJST macro program with the
sensitivity macro register, usually register 1.

The sensitivity macro register is a register that contains the Collision Guard setting value. The
sensitivity value is a value from 1% to 200%, where 1 is the least sensitive.

Adjusting Collision Guard within a Program

To adjust Collision Guard sensitivity within a program, do the following:

1. Verify that CG_ADJST macro is added to the macro table. Software default loads the macro
into the table as item 97.
2. Verify that the sensitivity macro register number has been set. Factory set to register 1.
