    ATC. Automatic Tool Changer issue. Leadwell Mill, MCV-OP Fanuc OM controller

    Hi guys, I'm starting another thread on the issue of ATC not working.
    A bit of history, the parameters were deleted, i think from the machine being powerless for 3 years??
    Anyhow I have put the parameters back in from an old floppy disk and from my service book.
    The Mill is slowly coming back to life as i can now load programs but cannot change tools even in MDI. The changer basically turns back and forth, it doesn't actuate down and across. (Not an arm type tool changer)
    zavateandu was greatly helping me out a few months ago but i think the issue was because the technician had my service book (4 or 5 months of calling him) which I had to go to and check some parameters and ladders. The ladders is something i have very little clue about other than i think its a series of switches??
    Thanks guys
    Bart

    Are there any PC parameter settings in your manual? On that series they would be Diagnostics in the 300's.
    Looks like a counter or timer is possibly not set. Its also possible that a value in the Diagnostics was set base on the location of the Magazine at that time and is now causing a conflict based on its current location.

    thank you.
    ill have to scan some parameters and probably ladders?
    I remember now, its been a few months but i was supposed to share this with zavateandu but i didn't have the manual. I have the manual now so ill scan it.

    ...just a quick reminder about changing Parameters....you must cycle the Control OFF, then back ON to take affect.

    That's a great point. I discovered that with the download issue a few days ago.

    ...yes, its great you have most if, not all the paperwork with machine. Which makes me wonder what else is on the Floppies you have. Also, does your machine have a Hard Drive? Is there more than one Directory of files...what are the File or Directory names ?

    Anyone knows how to disable atc to put my komo machine working tool manually? Which parameter can bypass it and eliminate the alarm of tool changer not ready?

    ...have you tried Punching the PMC Params from CNC to PC to see if there is anything in there? it might look like random numbers and letters when viewed has a TXT file.
