CHNC-1 Parts Catcher


Jun 21, 2018
Playing around today with the parts catcher on my Hardinge CHNC-1 and found an interesting problem. When I key in M26 in the over store screen it extends the parts catcher, key in M25 and it retracts without any issues. Then I add the M26 code into my program and it extends for about 5 seconds, retracts in for about 3 seconds, and then extends back out for a couple of seconds until the M25 is read.

Has anyone run into this issue before? Seems strange that it stays extended when in over store, but retracts in automatic mode.
