    What is the best indexing controller?

    Hi everyone, I have a Leadwell 4 axis horizontal machining center. Sometime when machining things in the 4th axis, gears etc, I have found it a bit difficult to get the tooling to reach out to the...

    Macro Problem

    Hey all. In the past I have worked on Fanuc machines that have had either macro A or macro B. I've written lots of routines in either language. Awhile back I bought a machine with an OM-F control,...

    Hi all. The rotary table I purchased has a Mitsubishi DC servo motor on it. Are they worth anything? I have been looking around to see if I could find a similar fanuc servo as the pallet rotary...

    Great!! Looking good then. Just hope I can get something set up neat and tidy. What I really need to do is be able to put the rotary table on the pallet, do a pallet change, set it up nice and square...

    Ok, so I bought a Tsudakoma RNCM-251R. I'm not sure what servo is in it. Will find out in a few days. Good condition too, 2K.

    Thanks Bowne. When I bought the machine the guy showed me that it had the FAPT conversational side to it. I had never seen one before. I'm an ISO person although used to manage a machine shop with a...

    I haven't got the second 4th axis yet, just planning ahead.

    So is it fair to say that if I had a smaller 4th axis clamped to the top of the table (which is the existing 4th axis), then all I need to do is somehow connect the power and encoder cables to the...

    My 4th axis servo number is A06B-0314-B004, the date of manufacture is JUN 1994, the Model is FANUS - OMF, It looks like the 3 axis have 1 servo drive, number A20B-1003-0864, then a smaller one...

    no worries , I'll play and post what I find. I think my situation is the same as yours basically with the exception i'm just going to change from one forth axis to the other. I guess as long as the...

    Ok, well changing parameter 19.1 did nothing in regard to the 4th axis, even after rebooting. Maybe that parameter is for a different control. Where do I read the control model. Cheers Damo

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies. The servo motors are the type with the red encoders. I'm not sure how to see the version of OM it is, on the boot screen it says OMM? What I imagined is having a...
  15. Adding a rotary table to an already 4 axis machine - can I switch between them?

    Hi everyone. I have a Leedwell Horizontal mill with a true 4th axis. It has a Fanuc OM control. What I want to do is instal a rotary table on top of the table to do some small work. I don't need to...

    Thanks Vekku, and thanks Dan. That's quite interesting to know about the OS IC's, and the voltage regulators. I know the ones you mean, screwed to the heat sink. I had checked all those voltages once...

    Salmve, Just before the machine was cold so I started it up and tried starting the spindle straight away at 3000 rpm. Sure enough it did as per usual and tried to start, then errored. Next I got out...

    Dan, the machine will alarm if any of those fuses are blown. I think it's interesting what Salmve has written as this area he is talking about is where the majority of the AOS03 and 04 IC's are....

    Hi Salmve, that's very interesting. When you say you heat the area below the heatsink, do you mean on the circuit board? Which is where the little black square shape IC's are.

    I've been having a perodical problem with the Spindle on my Fanic 6M milling machine. It is a DC spindle. From time to time it will blow either 1 or 2 of the 3 fuses on the spindle drive. It also...
