    Tornado 300, Alarm AL1018 Turret to slow

    Hi, I had a small accident with tool change, and the Turret tried to change tool inside a workpiece. That didn't work of cource...

    My problem now is that the Tornado 300 shows alarm message AL1018, and will not reset the alarm. The turret is also not locked, i can turn it around.

    Anyone that have done the same fault i did and fixed it ? I have looked all over the manual, but can not find information to fix my problem.

    Controller is Fanuc OTC-F and the turret is Duplomatic

    I have now fixed it.

    What I had to do was to open the Duplomatic logo cover and remove the Turretmotor cover. Then I pushed down the locking pin and turn the motor 3 revs to the right.
    The turret locking pin popped up again, but the position of the turret was correct. When I turned on the lathe again the error was gone..

    Happy Lets start production again
