The NX Shift Utilities WBT is a self-paced learning module that is designed specifically for understanding the range of opportunities to apply shifting utilities to jobs and programmed positions that need to be quickly and easily modified to a new location. This WBT teaches programmers, engineers, and service personnel the basic functions, menus, and procedures to apply Shift Utilities available on the NX controller. It can also be used as a refresher course for students that have previously viewed this module. Students must be at least familiar with how to teach positions and jog the robot safely.
Students learn the NX Shift Utilities procedures.
Primary topics include:
- Identify frames associated with shifting.
- Format a Position Variable for shifting use.
- Temporarily or permanently shift a job.
- Create new jobs as offset copies (Parallel Shift).
- Create new jobs as mirrored copies (Mirror Shift).
- 3-D shifting (Relative Job).
- Dynamically modify job positions.
This module consists of a self-paced learning environment reinforced with step-by-step procedures, images, and interaction. Topics relate to real-world cell operation. Students are encouraged to follow and perform the WBT screen exercises on a live Robot cell (when feasible).
