GSM PWC, calibration issue? PWC axis hits limit switch when setting board width. | 19 February, 2016

I'm setting up a product for the first time on my GSM after I completed debugging some other issues. The previous owners had the PWC axis disabled and the axis motor disconnected, so I re-connected it and enabled it and now it homes and moves. When I try to set a board width of 4.5" (4500/1000), the rear rail moves forward until it hits the front limit switch and the lane is 3" wide. I'm not sure what I'm missing here. The machine has the rear plate in the inboind position so the max lane width at pwc home position is 11". I 'set default data' for the axis' per the configuration manual but the issue persists. When the pwc axis homes, it shows 0 position and tracks accurately over the 8" of travel but the machine still seems to think there is more lane travel.

RESOLVED

I adjusted the "Minimum Board Width" in the Board Handling Configuration to resolve this issue. I set the lane width to a larger value which did not hit the front limit and measured the difference between the actual lane width and the set lane width to make the necessary adjustements to the value. The correct widths are now achieved.
