    Mori Seiki Zl 15 SM lathe data transfer

    Hello,

    I recently bought an old Mori Seiki ZL-15 SM lathe from 1990 (2 spindled, C axis on main spindle), FANUC MF-D4 (I believe it's 0T series), I managed to start it (without the C axis since I cannot find suitable live toolholders) and now it's producing. The problem I have it's that I cannot send/receive data using the RS232 connection and the lathe will not accept parametric programming (#1=50 #2=12 etc), for this reason I'm loosing a lot of time writing programs by hand.

    Anyone can please help?

    Probably a 0TT nightmare control. You will need Fanuc option custom macro for the variables.

    basic rs232 info for 0T is here.....
    Machinery RS232 communications settings for CNC controls including fanuc and mitsubishi

    check your parameters and cable. it really isn't that difficult to make it work as long as your machine and communication hardware is working.

    All, thank you, managed to solve the data transfer issue!
    Still -I know it is off topic- I could not solve the parametric programming issue, so any input is more than apreciated
