    Centurion 6 Lathe Sample Program

    Hi all,

    I’m working on a post processor for a Milltronics lathe with Centurion 6.
    It would be very helpful if someone could post a sample g code program. The parts of the program I’m most interested in, are the beginning, the end, and the tool change sequence.

    Appreciate everyone’s help!

    Hi Yogi, If all else fails try doing a conversational program, then go look at in text. Program, edit, text it will be the Oxxxx ( O1234) that you made.

    Thank you Bob! I’ll do that.
    I have a Fanuc post that looks to be very close, but needs some minor modification. Still, if someone has a short program to share, that would be very much appreciate.

    yogi107,

    Did you ever get the start, tool change and end codes? The conversational output is not easy to follow as a lot of it is not commented - so a pain...

    thanks

    pt, yes, I put a post together that has been working satisfactory so far. The Centurion control accepts straight g-code, so I didn't have to mess with the conversational too much.

    Thanks,
    Yogi

    Yogi,

    I forgot to ask the obvious, what Cam system are you making the post for? I am looking for somebody with a Fusion 360 post for the Milltronics lathe. I can modify my own but I thought I ask as there are many hours of messing around if a noob like me is attempting this...

    Thanks
    Peter

    Peter,
    I’m using Gibbs, with Posthaste as post processor.

    Hi Yogi, would it be possible for you to post a small program for me so I can see what it looks like. I just got a Milltronics ML-15 with the Centurion 6 controller and I'm trying to figure out how to write a g code program.
    Thanks Mike
