    Have you tried alternate settings for parameter 905 to define fewer or greater steps?

    I find it odd that your machine has the PMC-M board while VTM's very similar machine does not have that board....

    Maintenance manual says.....

    "The system is stopped before the CPU is activated".

    Seems like a boot error. I think you are going to have to talk to Fanuc. I've never seen this one before.

    Since many of the modules that make up a 16 series control have LEDs on them, it would be helpful if you provided some more info. It's free to type as much as you like and pics don't cost either!

    Since the function of DGN parameters is determined by the machine builder, not Fanuc, it is impossible for me to say without Enshu's documentation.

    OK, that is a 32 bit memory board and I was guessing that you had a 16 bit board.

    Did a bit more checking of my configuration information. Found some conflicting information about parameter 901. ...

    The -945 I/O board has a greater number of I/O points than the -946 so I doubt that has any effect on your trouble.

    Alarm 911 indicates a parity alarm with the main RAM. This makes me doubt...

    Yes you can. Years ago, made lots of wheel spindles with 2 critical bearing diameters separated by a taper. We would turn the first, smaller critical diameter using T0202 then while turning the...

    I have seen the persistent parity alarm when one tries to set a 900 series parameter configuring a memory size greater than the memory installed.

    Comments in red.....



    There must be more to the tool measure function than this one program. Probably other 9000 series programs. This appears to just be a way to position the tool over the...

    On Fanuc, the spindle encoder one revolution pulse is used to initiate the thread cycle. The spindle encoder is used to monitor spindle speed and feed is adjusted as needed to retain synchronous...

    I've always thought that Torque Skip would be handy to stop the machine if the material blank was too long. Turn on a torque limit then G31 P99 X-.06. If the torque limit was exceeded it would skip...

    Since the MIKI drive has speed control ability you would want to look at how it is interfaced to the PMC/PLC. If the MIKI drive is using an analog or digital speed setting input you would need to be...

    MTN stands for Motion. It means that a motion command has been issued. The FIN says the PMC is waiting for an input to occur.

    Implement has the answer. I have seen the same surface conditions in Ti investment castings being machined. It’s not an issue just related to forging.
