    Question Correction Tools from external applications

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm a developer for a Quality-Management Software and I'm on a new project which poses a lot of troubles to me. I'm programming in Delphi (Embarcadero) and have never done CNC programming (That's why I'm lost.. ;-)).

    From our software, we want to be able to make tool corrections directly on Fanuc CNCs (and other models in the future ..).

    I was interested in "INVENTCOM" which seems to me totally adapted to this, I did a lot of research and I found a lot of information on data acquisition but very poor informations on sending data to the machine.

    I found this page "https://www.inventcom.net/support/fanuc/read-write-parameters" which explains how to do it, but it is impossible for me to know exactly which parameters (Start and end) and / or which method used?

    This page : https://www.inventcom.net/support/cn...ice-parameters
    give some informations too, but It's very complicated to understand how to use it.

    In the end, as explained, I don't want to make an acquisition, but just be able to send an order, allowing me to make tool corrections directly on the machine (offset)?

    Could you show me a way to better understand all this ? Or in a perfect way, an exemple ?

    Have a nice day !

    You should look into fanuc focas. This is how other monitoring and gauging companies adapt offsets for tool length and tool wear and adjust feedrates and speed of the cut for maximum efficiency for tool life.
