    Fanuc Serial Number Macro

    Wrote this for a customer today, thought it might be of use to others. I started with this macro from http://www.cncci.com/resources/tips/serial%20macro.htm written by Steve Wood. We had some different requirements, so all that is left of his original program are the programs for the numbers, those have been edited as well. The pdf is a full description of how to call the program, simple G65 call.

    The macro allows scaling of the numbers as well as changing the spacing, the option of leading zeros or not, and can cut any integer number up to the maximum allowed length of the variables on your machine. 8 digits on the Oi that I tested the program on.

    Anyways, use as you wish.

    Looking for OKUMA engraving macro

    Does anyone have a g-code program that will run in an OKUMA U-10M control to create and increment scalable numeric characters for serial numbers.

    Thank you.

    Re: Fanuc Serial Number Macro

    I am trying to make this XDigit Fanuc Serial Number macro work on my Fanuc Oi. The code runs like it does not know what the starting serial number is (Z goes down and right back up) and I can't figure out how to initialize the serial number. The code between the % signs is mine and below that is TomL21's macro:

    What does the second line do:
    T02 M06
    N01 T02

    Re: Fanuc Serial Number Macro

    I think you found a bug. Looks like starting with a single digit with a value of 1 causes it to drop out before you start. If you plan on going into multiple digits you could add a C with the number of digits you want the serial number to be. It will add the leading zeros for place holders.

    N01 TO2 positions the next tool on the carousel after a tool change. This program is a one tool test program. N01 T02 also has the effect of positioning the next tool for the program restart, in this case the same tool. N01 is the line number.

    TomL21: that was the ticket, it works most excellently! Thank you so much for posting this thread and your quick reply to my question.

    How can I know which number will engrave next, as when I start a new batch? How can I initialize or reset the next number to engrave to be the number I want?

    The way you have it set up #500 stores the last number engraved. That can be reset or set to anything at any time by you. and nothing binds you to that one variable. For two different parts you could use #500 on one and #501 on the other and it would always pick up where it left off with that part. Which numbers get engraved are completely up to you.

    You can set #500 in MDI or in the Macro settings page
    Set #500 = 0 to go back and start at 1
    Set #500 = 'your number' - 1 to start engraving at a specific number.

    Remember in the format you have it #500 will be the last number engraved, because it increments immediately before the number is cut.

    Re: Fanuc Serial Number Macro

    As of Sept 2022 the macro in the link in the 1st post still has a bug that prevents the digit "1" from being engraved when the numbers 10, 100, 1000 etc. are specified without a C value in the G65.
    eg. the "9" will enrave ok but 10 will engrave as just "0" insteadd of "10" and 100 will engrave as just "00" insteadd of "100"

    Thanks for posting this!
    It is still very helpfull.
