    Most likely a switch or component failure would be my guess.

    Re: Nc macro program vs cam program

    There are several pros and cons for each, and each has it's limits.

    Re: 310 apc alarm x axis need zrn.

    I believe that these are Absolute Pulse Coder alarms - possibly due to the batteries??
    Do you have a proceedure to establish home position? You'll most likely need to do both.

    Re: "G10" tool magazine data on a Mori?

    Thanks for the reply Chuck,

    I think what I'm asking to do really isn't possible.
    I fully understand how to use variables for offset control - this isn't what I'm asking.
    I'd like to manipulate...

    Re: "G10" tool magazine data on a Mori?

    Sorry Steve - I misread your question, NO - all the offsets are known and reside in the machine. (we also currently have them on a whiteboard as well)

    Re: "G10" tool magazine data on a Mori?

    You got it Steve ...

    The offsets are (basically) resident in the machine for each tool.
    Of the 200 offsets, we're using 194.
    Each program has its unique offset, Example;
    N1(drill)

    Re: X over travel R

    You just need to move the axis off of its "overtravel dog" (switch).
    I said halfway just to make sure it's off.
    IF you are unable to move the axis at all, you might be on what's called a "hard...

    Re: X over travel R

    Trees,

    It sounds like the machine has moved beyond it's travel limit (somehow). In this situation, it basically won't allow you to do anything other then recover the alarm.

    I recently adopted an older Mori M300 machining center.

    Re: Why they don't want to accept my idea?

    To do some "simple" calculations,
    Find out your shop's "burden rate" for production.
    Let's say your drill costs $300 and your full-burdened shop rate is around $85/hr. If you make one piece per...

    It's all about justification.
    If you can show that the cost of the (investment) new designed drill will pay for itself in a short amount of time with piece/cost reductions, it's a no-brainer....

    Refer to your Operator manual;

    Parts Count is actually an M02/M30 count.
