    [QUOTE=Ox;3475056]Well - if this has been down for 16 yrs, then this aint no 5X machine, so why does this value matter in any way?

    What are you dooing with regards to Machine Z0 anyway?

    Not...

    I needed to move -.0591 away from where the Z 0 was set in "base" zero (g53). I was trying to move +.0591 towards the Z limit. I guess you can only set the G53 away from the limit switches. I had...

    G53 is called base zero in siemens speak. I reset that to be zero at .0591 below the Z upper limit (the tool change initial Z position with no tool offset loaded "T0"). I also tried going to...
  6. Machine coordinate system off by .0591 in Z on siemens 840d

    Been making parts with my recently acquired DMG DMC103V with 840D control for a month or so. All is well except for one last problem. Z in G54 is exactly .0591" off.

    In other words, if I setup a...

    I met the guy that runs that place a couple months ago. Their facility is in Hayward next to a place I bought a DMG machine from. Small operation but seemed pretty interesting. From what the owner...

    In the end, the guy writing my post just wrote a new MDD then created a few new drill cycles that I put into the macro folder in my cam software. Now I can just call those peck cycles up if I’m using...

    Thanks to pccasanova, I was able to get to the cycle masks. Go to program, open in text editor, highlight the N line with the cycle call, press support softkey, graphical cycle opens. It looks fine...

    Tried that but same result, drill repeats the cycle endlessly after the first peck depth in either peck or peck full retract.

    I just installed a DMG machine here that sat for some years. It had the same problem, there was a spring loaded check valve in the coolant block at the spindle. It was gummed up. I had to heat it up...

    Siemens 840D can use regular gcode but also CYCLE calls. The syntax looks ok to me, heres the page from the 840D manual on CYCLE83.

    Yes it does, but on this software version, its not graphical, just a long text file. It can be opened up in the text editor. I did look at it, way over my pay grade. I have no idea how to edit that....
  15. CYCLE83 Peck drilling problem with post output 840D

    I finally got my DMG DMC103V with 840D machine making parts. Post processor is pretty good, only errors are on the peck drilling cycles. CYCLE83 runs but stalls with no errors at N91. Drill just goes...

  19. How to reset base offsets back to zero on siemens 840d?

    In the process of setting up my DMG DMC103 I think I may have accidentally set my base offsets to the wrong place. I am getting software limit errors when I try to run a program now. Does anyone know...

    Wondering if its a problem with my base offsets, how do you reset these to zero?

    Same error when trying to run in MDI. Heres the program. This post is supposed to be for a DMG DMC63V with 840D. Also error is in every axis ie: if I remove Z moves, error is in next axis, either Y...
  22. 10720 error Siemens 840D, code wont run, how to check zero offsets?

    Im trying to test a post processor for my DMG DMU103V with 840D control. I can run a few lines then any axis movement causes a 10720 error. This a software limit error somehow related to the zero...

    Ok I figured it out. The magazine list tool offset is not the actual tool length on this machine, its another type of WCS, I finally saw that "WCS" was written above the column! If you change a tools...

    The laser shutter was a blown air line under the table, no big deal. For some reason, the tool length data that the laser added to the tools in the table blocks any changes to the Z offset. I reset...
  25. DMG DMC103V 840D Z axis work offset is locked how to unlock?

    Im trying to set the work offset on this machine. The DMC implementation of the WCS on this control is really different than whats in the Siemens manual and also very different from my DMG DMC manual...
