  1. Re: Kitamura with Fanuc OM control - 400 408 414 424 434 servo alarms

    Seriously. The Fadals have never given me this much trouble.
  2. Re: Kitamura with Fanuc OM control - 400 408 414 424 434 servo alarms

    I talked to Fanuc support yesterday. Start by checking fuses. Then possible loose fiber optic cable. I will look into it next week.

    I lost half a day yesterday switching the job that was running...
  3. Kitamura with Fanuc OM control - 400 408 414 424 434 servo alarms

    1998 Kitamura Mycenter1 with Fanuc O-M control

    I recently got this machine into commission after it sat for a year (stuck ATC and RS-232 communication issues) after moving it into my shop.

  4. Re: Fanuc 6m how to setup/config tools procedure ?

    I'm programming for 5 machines from one computer. I want to know what tool is in each slot of the carousel. It's easy to figure it out in Fadals UI. You can see the diameters of each tool in the tool...
  5. Re: Fanuc 6m how to setup/config tools procedure ?

    I'm looking for an easier way to set tool length offsets. Right now I jog to zero on the zero setter and memorize the number, then switch to the offset screen. I even have to type in a cancellation...
  6. Re: Fanuc 6m how to setup/config tools procedure ?

    This video demonstrates how much easier it is to set up a Fadal vs Fanuc controlled machines. Is there a similar process that I am missing? I haven't run a Fanuc mill in almost 20 years.

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    That worked! Smooth transfer at 9600. Thank you so much! I thought I had already configured the COM port, but I think that was on another computer that I had connected a while ago.

    So is 9600 the...

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    I have achieved communication! I found a document that I had printed out. I'm not even sure which doc it is, but I'm pretty sure I got it on here.

    The first line says to set Parameter 0002 to...

    Re: Kit tool changer arm stuck in mid stroke

    It seems that the machine was getting stuck mid tool change because the drawbar wasn't releasing quickly or completely enough, so when the piston pushed the arm down to swap tools, it was actually...

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    I figured that out. I switched the machine zero display from metric to inches.

    I still can't send a program to the control. I can receive from the control to the PC just fine. The RS-232 tester...

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    I'm still fighting this. One question regarding a tip on setting parameters on the control to x on/ x off. I read that parameter 391.6 should be set to 1. Is that 00000100 or 00100000? One source...

    Thanks for the help. Unfortunately it still isn't working. I'm wondering if it is the plug on the machine now.

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    Insanity continues. I resolved the ATC issue and the alarm condition is cleared.

    I still can't send a program to the control. I can send a program from the control to the PC.

    I am using...

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    Dan, I tried PC-DNC to see if it needed EIA format. That didn't work. Then I went back to ASCII and tried sending a program from the control to the PC and it worked! It looked just like the program...

    Re: Conecting Fanuc-OM to PC

    This thing is not that old. Circa 2000, I believe. It looks like neither my old BobCAD V17 CAM or Predator DNC software has options for EIA tape code. I am about to try PC-DNC.

    One question: I see...

  21. Re: 1992 VMC20 Crazy screen and control keeps resetting

    Thank you for the responses. I will try them out when I get a chance.

    One issue I have had for a while is that the machine overheats on hotter days. I keep the cabinet open to let it cool off. The...
  22. 1992 VMC20 Crazy screen and control keeps resetting

    So my early 90s VMC20 with the 88 control is acting up. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries to even get the control to start up. Sometimes I get the crazy screen pictured.

    Now the control will just...

    Re: Kit tool changer arm stuck in mid stroke

    The ATC arm is stuck on my machine, but I can't figure out how to get the machine into maintenance mode to jog it. I have all of the manuals, but I am not seeing anything about maintenance mode.
  24. Re: Keyboard stopped working in VMC20 88 control, but works when I swap it to the 402

    So I swapped the 1040 card and it did nothing. Then I moved on to the 1030 card and that fixed it. For fun I put the old 1030 card back in and it works. So it seems that the issue was a bad...
  25. Keyboard stopped working in VMC20 88 control, but works when I swap it to the 4020

    I started getting some intermittent inoperative keys on the newish Calmotion keyboard on my 1994 VMC20 on Friday. It was the second day of a bit of a heat wave. Only about 80 degrees, but...
