Kawasaki Robotics Spin Control Function has two control systems. Their differences are listed in the table below.
1. Simple Spin Control: Expands the motion range of JT6 or the external rotation axis set as the spin axis, and synchronizes movement of the spin axis with the other axes (JT1 – JT5) towards the set point. In short, expands the normal motion range for a robot’s JT6 or external rotation axis.
2. Standard Spin Control: Functions the same as Simple Spin Control but without synchronizing movement of the spin axis with the other axes (JT1 – JT5). Uses special commands/instructions for spin control in operation.
Spin Control is more often used in welding robots but can also be used as a safeguard to keep palletizing robots from tearing up the harness on the 4th axis.
