    SERVO ALARM : 23 (ZAXIS)(Z-axis feedrate command value error)

    This is the meaning of alarm 23. Makes me think you have commanded a feedrate somewhere that the servo system is not capable of.

    Could just turn them on the Tsugami and get yourself a flat die thread rolling machine......

    Much faster process. Probably 30-45+ parts per minute.

    Randomly executing M codes has potential for trouble. Some builders include things like maintenance modes, data setting modes, or interlock bypass functions in M codes.

    When I have run into questions whether the machine was having sync issues, I'd recommend switching from a collet to a floating holder yet still keep the rigid tap cycle. Then, if the problems were...

    Back in the late 90s and early 2000s Methods imported Kasuga under the Quantum name. Worked on one. Kind of a POS. In less than 2 years it had to have the Turcite on the x axis replaced.

    Brent, for peck tapping you just program deeper Z coordinates on the lines following the G84 and before the G80.

    If you try to re-tap the hole after calling the G80 you may cross-thread it though...

    If the indexer controller is connected to the Fanuc, the M-code used will be determined by the machine builder and whoever interfaced it. There is no standard.

    There should not be "slide drift". When you watch the machine rather than the CRT, doesn't the spindle stop at the same time as the Z axis stops at the commanded Z position? That's how rigid tap is...
