Now that I think of it...the Mori was even more confusing. Lets say
your first toolchange went like this...
would bring up tool 1
now to mess with your head.....
M6 T2 (eob)
would bring up tool 1 and stage tool 2...and the next toolchange would
look like this....
M6 T3 (eob)
That would change to tool 2 and stage tool 3. Once you got used to it
it was not bad....I always used to make redundant callouts just to
keep things straight.
(eob) = End Of Block
You never told us which control you are asking about. 0? 6? 10? 11? 15? 16?
18? 21i? 0i? 31i?
FWIW, on my 18mc I can MDI M6 T2 EOB, insert, cycle start. Or T2 M6 EOB,
insert, cycle start. Same results either way.
Virtually every machining center that I've ever encountered which had any of
the relatively early series fanuc controllers needed at a minimum to have
the z axis separately commanded to atc home position or else it would hang
on the M06.
Typically, the operator does this either by manually initiating a reference
return or via MDI execution of the line G91G0G28Z0
My dad can beat up your dad...
M's hooked up to an argumentative O9xxx-sub take prescience to the builded
That is an feature not a exploitable bug.
I use this on 18T(A)s cuz Mirror On is next to sub air on. And Mirror On
does not go away with a re-boot. So I programmed a sub and hooked it to the
Mirror On M and it simply issues mirror off. Took a while to figure out
that one. Fun.
Try putting M6 into a O9xyi macaroni :
T#what the hell ever T is<eobf><putin>
or to keep ones mind sharp
T[SQRT[#what the hell ever T is]]<eobf><putin>
or just stack em up mit nine customisen-sub
If you took the time to do a time study, you would-will have seen/see/saw
you will have lost more time with this thread and fiddling with custom
macros than you will ever make back with the elusive fix had you just
Weave got mill/turns that must do tool changes called from auto/memory/run
mode. call the program - search T(five digits lest to load the wrong tool
or just an wrong offset) - edit said searched T - reset - run.
But is has been fun.....admit it.
