    T32-2 Enable spindle orientation.

    Got it, well the 0RPM "trick" didnt work for me anyway since i need to locate at 3 or 4 evenly spaced points, but ill make a mental note that its bad practice to command 0RPM. (My spindle might have crept a little aswell, didnt pay that much attention it just looked stationary). The quest...

    T32-2 Enable spindle orientation.

    So far i have not made much progress on this. However ive been thinking on what the control is actually looking for from the orientation board, if its an actual two-way communication or something simpler that could be emulated by another sensor or board. On another note, i accidentally...

    T32-2 Enable spindle orientation.

    That's a bummer, but some googling does seem to indicate you are correct. The question then becomes if we can identify the boards number (so we don't have to look for a complete drive), and if it is more or less a plug and play situation.

    T32-2 Enable spindle orientation.

    Ive got 3 other machines (not Mazaks) and on those, theres no brake for the spindle orient. Instead when using spindle orient its just the servo motor holding everything still.

Ive figured out that by enabling parameter R52, bit 7, the...

    Add bar feeder to program

    Hi Bill Thank you for the indepth explanation. I just tried a short program: G54 G00 Z150 M00 G00 Z10 M99 With the bar feeder turned off, and the M00 did exactly what its supposed to and i had to press cycle start for it to continue. So i would guess that the bar feeder is somehow capable of...

    Add bar feeder to program

    Thanks for the input! When using the 1sec time delay after M13, it was behaving exactly like i wanted it. The bar feeder would push right after chuck open, then the toolpost/stop would move back along with the bar to the desired position and execute M12 which would retract the bar feeder push...

I recently acquired my first lathe, Preestech TH25F with GSK980TB3i controller and a Fedek DH65L S2 bar feeder(Ive only had mills until now).
