gripHoleSlotMode Toothed gripper hole slotting mode 6.4.93.0 Toothed Gripper 0 to 2 0 Allows elongation of the toothed gripper holes on all profiles, or specific profiles

This helps the gripper pins locate if a profile has rotated slightly in the clamps

Slotting modes

0 - off

1 - On profiles where the flip parameter = 'D'

2 - On all Profiles

gripHoleSlotSize Toothed gripper hole slot size 6.4.93.0 Toothed Gripper -5 to 5 0 Movement of Y axis to produce gripper slot in mm

Can be + or -

A negative value will elongate the hole towards the front of the machine - this is the most common as the profiles tend to roll back

A positive value will elongate holes towards rear

If elongation in both directions is needed, alter the yGripHolePosition parameter first and elongate +/- from that position

canSkipInitialise Flag software to skip the initialise function after estop and continue from where program was stopped 6.4.96.0 All Beckhoff TC3controls 0 or 1 0 Switch on to improve recovery speed after an estop.

This parameter needed following machine compliance upgrade to local gate, needs to be wired into estop circuit

ps_ejectpushMH Pause for eject push on MH side. 6.5.6.0 Mk3 Flowline all-

in-one

0 to 5000 3500 This followed discovery of a bug which means MH side and saw side shared ps_ejectPush. This delay is now used solely for MH side ejecting if there is no eject out sensor

finalCutOffset offset to apply to the final cut of a bar 6.5.13.0 All -1 to 1 0 Applied on a cut less than 150mm from end, as this reflects cuts where the gripper lets go of the profile and leaves the clamping for cutting to the outfeed side. This can create a predictable error that can be offset with this value
...Only use this parameter if the error is consistent across many, many tests on many profiles

usePopupBackfenceZX5 use the popup cylinders for a backfence on MH outfeed 6.5.15.0 ZX5 0 or 1 0 Original software used the popups on Crank C as the backfence, but this was disabled as they were sometimes damaged by a wayward profile, ripping off the plastic journals.


Following an update on Z083 Window Warehouse, some bars tip over, probably indicating a slightly different setup or alignment. This parameter allows a reversal back to the original process

vsOffsetLead Offset value for a vs profile for the vs tilted lead cut of the mitre pair \ ] 6.5.22.0 Autoflow VS -5 to 5 0 Allows a simple offset for inconsistencies with VS tilt cuts

...Should always try to solve with blade spacers first

vsOffsetTail Offset value for a vs profile for the vs tilted tail cut of the mitre pair [ / 6.5.22.0 Autoflow VS -5 to 5 0
vsTiltTiltGap Additional Gap added between two VS Square / square cuts with tilt 6.5.23.0 Autoflow VS 0 to 10 3 Needed if the above vsOffset parameters are used which could end in an overlap situation, putting the cuts in the wrong order on the bar length. The vsTiltTiltGap should exceed the maximum vsOffset
ps_InfeedConvDecelTime Timer for the Infeed Conveyor decel time 6.5.27.0 Autoflow Mk4 0 to 5000 5000 On Stuertz infeed, there is a electro-mechanical brake on the motor. This timer is the time from switching off the inverter output to application of the brake. This allows for issues when the inverter decel timer has not been set correctly. On A2027 it is set on 300 because the decel of the conveyor is 0.5 seconds which is too long
