    Heidenhain 426 Old Dog Needing help

    Hey guys, hoping to get some help here.

    I have an old Soraluce 5-axis with a Heidenhain 426 controller. Right now the machine head is orientated so that the tool is perpendicular to the table (in a modern Heidenhain controller this would be A-90,B0,C0). However, we are unable to get the machine to read the plane/tool table that the head rotates to. So, for instance:

    While the head is in the above-mentioned orientation, the machine cannot see this and therefore thinks it is in the "straight" orientation (i.e. a traditional HMC). I've done a bit of research and have talked to Soraluce (worthless) and have found that a MP7500 code must be defined. I'm trying to get it to MP7500, bit 2 so that when the CYCLE DEF 19 is called up, the tool table plane changes to match the orientation of the head.

    I hope I've made myself clear. I'm just hoping to reach someone out there who is a master in this stuff.
