    Default Fusion Meldas Post

    I have absolutely zero experience with modifying post processors. I have a OKK mill with a Mitsu Meldas M320 control that wants the T# and M06 to be on separate lines or else it just grabs whatever tool is in pot 1 and put it in the spindle and alarms that it can't find the tool even if it is in the spindle. The G-code currently being output looks like this

    (ADAPTIVE2)
    N30 M09
    N35 T1 M06
    N40 S4000 M03

    I need it to look like this

    (ADAPTIVE2)
    N30 M09
    N35 T1
    N36 M06
    N40 S4000 M03

    How do I edit the post processor to output T1 M06 on separate lines? It is already set up to call the next tool on a separate line to prestage the tool. But then when it is time to change the tool it calls the tool number again on the same line as M06 cause the machine to alarm out.

    Right now I have to go through and manually edit the code to separate the T# and M06. How do I change the post so it does it for me?

    I don't know Fusion posts, but...line 421:

    writeBlock("T" + toolFormat.format(tool.number), mFormat.format(6));
    if (tool.comment) {
    writeComment(tool.comment);
    }

    My first guess is to try this:

    writeBlock("T" + toolFormat.format(tool.number));
    writeBlock(mFormat.format(6));
    if (tool.comment) {
    writeComment(tool.comment);
    }

    That worked. Thankyou very much!

    The need for separating the T call and M6 is determined by the machine builder's ladder logic program, not Mitsubishi. Many, if not most, Meldas equipped machines can use T and M6 on the same line.
