MyData TP9-UFP : Optical Centering Calibration Question | 16 October, 2014

We have tpsys 1.5.18 on our TP9-UFP. We are attempting to run "Optical Centering Calibration". Following the instructions in the manual, we have centered the cross hairs on the camera frame, loaded a "base" board then the L-19-447 calibration board, found the two reference points, and found a location for checking board height. The machine uses tool C23 and picks the calibration board. The cal board is slowly raised until it is knocked off the C23 tool by the centering jaws assembly. The software then wants us to find the reference points again. The cycle repeats. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for answering. John

Are you able to turn off mechanical centering? Or can you adjust the settings?

The only reason you would need to run this calibration is if the camera was replaced or the centering camera got whacked which is highly unlikely.

If your placements are off, put an offset in the parameter file.
