    Hello Kevin,
    Exactly. I'm thinking that Brent's machine doesn't support Rigid Tapping.


    Not a normal requirement with rigid tapping. I recently set up a program for a client where the max number...

    Hello Brent,
    In Auto Mode, the feed rate override is locked out in tapping. With the machine I'm referring to, in Dry Run, I can wind the feed rate back to Zero and the spindle will stop. Turn it on...

    Hello Douglas,
    You're preaching to the choir. That's the advice I had from Fanuc many years ago and confirmed recently. We didn't touch on control via the PMC during our discussion, but I can see no...

    Hello Gregor,
    On the advice of my Fanuc colleagues, the spindle should be started for Rigid Tapping from a stopped condition and its universal relating to Fanuc Controls. It doesn't actually state...

    Hello Brent,
    Its been my experience that on a lathe that doesn't have a "C" axis, if its Rigid Tapping ready, the spindle will respond to M19 to orientate the spindle. I've not seen it documented,...

    Hmmm. Why is that not surprising? Its more than likely that your XP is running as a 32bit OS; most USB to Serial adapters work with a 32bit OS, had you been using one, but the main reason is that...

    Justin,
    If you have no 9 pin (DB9) connector, what wires to what have you connected at the External Device end of the cable? I very much doubt that the three wires that you should have running to...

    Hello Justin,
    List the pin out of the cable you're using. Is it the same as my listing in Post #17?

    Hello Hardplates,
    Yes, you have to cycle the power to the control after Cancel+P and Reference Return to invoke the soft limits.

    Hello Cannonmn,
    If you can't find a DB25 unit (it needs to be DG25 both ends to be able to connect between your cable and the connector at the control), you can use DB9 to DB25 adapters.

    Regard,...

    Hello Cannonmn,
    What do you expect those to indicate to you? If using Software Handshaking, the only connection between the two devices is the TX and TR lines (plus Signal Ground). Accordingly,...

    Hello Justin,
    Don't just change things around without first identifying if what you're going to do is correct. The connector at the Machine side will be a DB25 connector, the connector associated...

    Interestingly, or not, TNRC was once possible with the Fanuc G71 Cycle. Earlier controls, up to FS16T (I think), but excluding controls before FS10T, were able to apply TNRC with the G71 Cycle. This...

    Hello KhalChristian,
    Barratt got it. To expand on his comment, the issue is due to the fact that TNRC is ignored in the G71 Cycle. Accordingly, the 0.8 Radius Insert will over-cut profoundly on the...
