    OKUMA MC500H PALLET CHANGE DIRECTION

    Hello

    I have an Okuma MC500H with OSP 7000 control. Pallet changer is parallel type. Machine is from a company who uses pallet pool and they always used loading from A to B.

    When we execute M60 it always changes pallet from A to B. Is there any way to change pallet both ways?

    VPLTK shows 1 if A pallet is ready to load and shows 2 if B is ready. if no pallet is ready or both is loaded it shows 0.

    Any help will be priceless.

    What Mcode are you using ?
    Have you registered the user Mcodes ?
    Did you have to make any extra bubble space ?

    it was for a horizontal machine (MX40HA), where you execute M201 to have pal.1 in the machine, if not, bring it in.
    .... you may need to understand it & prove each sub off in a little program 1st.

    CAUTION.... it uses G30Pnumbers. these need to be verified to be working correctly before fully implementing.

    hello Superman

    I am using M201 and M202 codes to try to change the pallets. I have registered Mcodes and expanded buffer size for the lib file. there is no problem with the library assignment and m code assignments

    inside lib file there are lines
    " M60
    RP=1 M289 ( SET PALLET#1 )"

    I have also found those in the manual books. I have tried those in MDI mode and auto mode both. but there is no difference it still wants to change left to right. I will upload a video for the details tomorrow. I am hoping to solve this problem. Thank you
