    Robofil 510 not rethreading during program

    Hello,

    I'm working with a Robofil 510 and I can't get it to rethread when the wire breaks during machining. It ONLY fails during rethread in the middle of a program, though. It will thread at the beginning of a contour and after intentional wire cuts just fine. The manual isn't any help, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    Right now I use the format

    M16
    M06

    The idea being that if M16 memorizes a point, it should go back to that command in order to start from the last memorized point. Problem is I have no clue how exactly it works. The manual simply says that M16 is the code to memorize a safe rethread point. In reality, the head doesn't move, the controller prints out "A080 Rethread Active," and then I need to suspend the program, raise the head, manually thread, or just restart the program.

    I have also tried

    M06
    M16

    M16 XxYy
    M06

    M06
    M16 XxYy

    ATH and ART are both set to 1, and I have it set to attempt rethread 10 times per program. This is driving me crazy. What am I doing wrong?

    SOLVED


    Issue was mechanical, not software based. The rethreading block motor had seized. we got it loose and it's working fine now.

    Hi,

    Could you let me know how to set the number of rethread attempts? I must be blind because even after reading the manual I cannot see how to do this.

    Thanks in advance.
