    I would guess they are Sigma I units (if they are brush-less...look for two plastic circular connectors). They didn't use Sigma V stuff until several years later.

    You can use a Sigma I rotary on...

    OK, I just read the "machine units" will display in metric if the machine is equipped with metric ball-screws. Not sure if that is correct or not.
  5. Fanuc 0i Mate TB - workshift does not work...parameter setting?

    I'm working with a newly acquired Fanuc 0i Mate TB toolroom lathe and trying to get the workshift to work correctly...or at least like I'm used to.

    I did the "P" + "CAN" reboot and also verified both switches work by manually operating them and watching X9.0 and X9.1.

    I temporarily stole the -X limit dog to use it for the X home. I had to...
  7. Fanuc 0i-TB Mate - how to verify limit and home switches?

    I just acquired a CNC toolroom lathe project with a Fanuc 0i-TB Mate control. The machine did not see much love or maintenance and I'm trying to get it back into commission.

    Has anyone here found a solution to keep small parts from "sticking" to the flat ends of the tub? We make a lot of small aluminum parts and there are always a good amount of them sticking to the...

    Our 325 has been very reliable except for the plastic tubing used for the collet closer, parts catcher, etc...the tubing has gotten very brittle over the years.

    One of these days, I'm planning on...

    I have a 325 EmcoTurn and I'll get a 1024 alarm from time to time. Usually, it's caused by a wad of stringy chips getting between one of the tools and the sheet metal.

    To clear it, press the AUX...
  11. Recommended diamond wheel(s) for grinding alumina ceramic (+99.6% pure)

    I have some 3/16" diameter alumina rods that I need to grind a straight chisel tip on one end and also accurately grind to over-all length.

    friesen,

    Do you remember what parameters you changed? It looks like most all of the timing parameters have to deal with the side-mounted tool changer.
  13. Speed up tool changes on a Haas 20 tool carousel?

    We have a 1998 VF3 with a 20 tool carousel that needs some attention and a new turret motor.

    It looks like the later model Haas carousel design uses a two-pin drive motor and updated geneva disk. ...

    I don't know how things got so off topic, my original question is NOT about hand coding vs CAM. I would like to know if there are any advantages to creating lathe programs in Group Type A, B, or C? I...

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll go with keeping both lathes setup as Group Type A. I still have some work to do on the post-processor, but I ran +500 parts over the weekend with a bar-puller and...

    Hey Bill, I got it working. You only missed it by this much (M3).

    I had to add a M3 to the end of the G84 command. I doesn't make that much sense to me as it's a right-hand tapping cycle...

    I have no experience with the control you're using, but maybe you need to specify a feedrate with the G01 on line N21?
