Material handling robots (arc welding robots do not use this feature) have a utility for automatic calculations of tool weight and gravity. From your tool file, select utility, then W.GRAV.POS MEASURE. Now choose to consider or not-consider the load setting on the U arm. Press the FWD key, and the robot will move to the 0 position. Press and hold the FWD key, and the robot controller will run a macro to do the calculations. Pressing register will put the data in your tool file.
