    Fanuc 21i-MB hang problem

    If you contact Fanuc, they can help you diagnose it. I have an 18iMB here that was doing strange things on Mondays before finally evolving into a black screen and showing 900 rom parity.

    Specialized Vertical mill for EDM Carbons ? Makino SNC 64

    Sorry I usually dont click links, especially to MyFace™ so I cant see what was shown. They are great machines for electrodes and hardmilling core cavity work, so I am told.

    Fanuc 16M in HMC, Y axis red cap encoder issue.

    I am not real experienced on the non i 16/18 controls, but I believe the encoder is serial on that machine. The only way to see the "channels" is with a check board plugged into the drive. You should be able to see the output of the scales though. And if you are getting an excess following error...

    TOS (omnitrade canada variant) 5 axis horizontal cnc mill - 1991 fanuc 15m need ladder and will pay

    I had a 92 Monarch mill with a B. Reason I ask is I think the ladder types A vs B are different. "A" being much more difficult to deal with today. Memoryman would know. Something significant is different between them.

    Hyundai lathe M162 Spindle phase problem.

    kill the sync after clamping the main chuck. Then engage C. You might have to do certain things like homing C with the sub chuck open as the velocity the tag along sub chuck would be forced to go will cause an excess speed alarm. If you are syncing by phase for a future hand off, you will have...

    tsugami lathe BO325B-11 LOW COOLANT ALARM

    Our Tsugami BO326-ii has a flow switch on the flood coolant line, just downstream of the pump. When we first got it, the fines filter on the "hybrid" chip conveyor immediately plugged up. Causing the tank to run dry, leading to the same problem as yours. I found that Tsugami had provided a...
