    Fanuc/Robodrill rapid feed parameters

    Hello all,

    I have a Robodrill a-D21LiA5 with Fanuc series 31i-model B5...

    This machine is crazy fast and gets dangerous to run specially when we do a lot of one offs.

    What parameters can I change to reduce the rapid feeds to lets say in half.

    and how to change those parameters ?

    cheers

    there should be 4 buttons that say low, 25%,50% and 100% these will control the rapid

    Yes, there is low, 25%,50% and 100% but the low is way to slow and the 25% is way to fast for 25%---this machine is crazy fast and I'm already seeing people crashing it big time. Have you seen a robodril running? it may sound ironic---Sometimes seems that the machine wants to run away through the shop. I can post a video if you like? A good example, I never seen a machine changing tools so fast, I'm looking at the tool change operation and the tool is already on the part. Is faster than my eyes. sound funny but is the true!!!!
    If I could increase the low a little and decrease all the other ones by 50% would be optimal for the type of work we do.

    Parameter 1420, Must be in MDI or ESTOP and turn on PWE which can be found under the offset/setting screen under settings. Parameter Write Enable

    Thanks drdos, works like a charm now...
    I was just wondering if there is a separated parameter for the "low" I basically wanted to increase the low feed...

    cheers

    I have never worked on a robodrill but I would answer no, you cannot modify the low speed. The parameter modify overall speeds. The percentages and ranges are done in the machine logic.

    I decided to look up the boring book and couldn't find any parameter info for the low---its a default setting. which is dumb!!! always thought Japaneses were a little smarter LOL

    I can handle it indeed---is just, doesn't make sense the low rapid feed VS the 25%/50%/100% which only have one parameter, that is all.
    If this machine is designed for a production environment---why not a fully optimization? Maybe you can answer me?
