    Is the door closed? Or more particular - are all the Door Interlock Switches which may have been bypassed by someone operational and with the keys in them? Also on my two Mori Fanuc machines, you...

    I don't know what your experience level is, but you realize Program files are simply Text files. Meaning they don't take up very much memory. You can do a hell of a lot of machining with a 512kb text...

    Most machines are going to have lifting points built into the main castings that they use at the factory. You might have to pull back some Y axis covers to get to some of them. Probably three or four...

    FIXED IT... It was the program. Why I"m not sure but it's something to do with the control not liking me leaving the work for a tool change while still in G1 mode. See below for the fix. I wish I...

    DGN 300 was sitting at 4 while the program was running, when the turret faulted it started shimmering so fast one could hardly tell, but mostly looked like down to zero and back if that. An...

    Hello Vancbiker,

    I'm leaning on your T axis idea.

    Parameter 1010 say P6. The machine has 5 channels of servo control across three Servo Amps running 5 Servo Motors. The cabling is labeled (X...

    To be sure... I don't make this sh*t up.

    Ran across another Youtube video that got me going where I never realized I needed to go. Fanuc Connection Manual (Function) I'm starting to get-it even...
  8. Lathe Turret Hanging Only In production Programs

    I'm still having this problem where in every production program, at some point the turret will hang up after unclamping. I've trouble shot far enough to know that all the signals are correct for the...

    This does sound like a very expensive tool, and one would hope it does what it says it's going to do, but I say... why does it matter at all what it says on the dial of an adjustable boring device?...

    Yes, that's exactly what I did back in the day. My house had the main single phase box in the attached garage and a sub in the basement. I stuck my phase convertor and 220-440 transformer down in the...

    Generally I use 2-3 passes for course threads and 1 or 1-2 for fine. I also like to use the same tool path for all passes and simply change the comp number and value for each pass. Can't remember off...

    Here your first feed input is using a decimal. In the G71 cycle, F is programmed in Least Input Increment without a decimal. So your feed is 0.3mm. I've read conflicting instructions on this, and...

    I've done a few jaws with insert drills. You can even bore with the outer insert after you drill if you need a bigger size.

    Google How To Use Gun Drills and read up. Plenty to know to get it...

    Hello Flash,

    If you have any of the following Fanuc models 16/18/20/21 your compensation parameter is likely the same as mine 4034 P2. Note I said 4035 previously which is a mistake I can' t edit...

    It's a 2000 Mori SL200-SMC. And yes they're both C. Depends on which one is deemed active at the moment either through program call or control panel button pushing. When moving the sub the screen...

    Update:

    After 4 or 5 tries I was able to set a "grid" number of sorts in the control in parameter 4035 for the 2nd spindle. This then appeared on the Spindle Tune screen as some shift amount. Now...

    Thanks for the tips. I think you saved my 50% of potential dinking around time. It is my way to want to fix this problem, and I'm sure I will sooner then later. Of course Mori Service is still...

    I've used them for many things in machine rebuilding but not gunsmithing. Only thing I can suggest is to make sure you're getting a low frequency one. I'm not completely sure how low they go, but a...

    You might be on to something. Here's what the book says and here's what I got. Not sure what a "Word" data entry means in this situation. Least Input increment? Whole degree?

    The manuals don't speak of any need to do that, and I'm wondering if once calling M34, if the control would pay any attention to that anyway. Though it is worth a try. I'd prefer to not have to play...

    My experience is with Scotch Brite hand pads and belts. All of them give the "brushed" look. Even the white one which is the finest grit. If you're after polishing I think you're looking at the wrong...

    1) Turn off line numbers. Not needed and wastes memory.

    2) Segmented arcs programming is way more memory intense then arc moves. Use arcs and force them to use R instead of I and J unless that...
