  1. Re: Fanuc digital spindle drive lies about AL-04 error

    When you swapped the EPROMs was it still the AL-04 or did it revert back to the AL-19?
  2. Re: Fanuc digital spindle drive lies about AL-04 error

    I had a similar issue on a Chiron VMC and it wouldn't work until we had the EPROMs reflashed. I would try moving the EPROMs from the board you removed to this one and see if you get the AL-04 error....
  3. Re: Fanuc digital spindle drive lies about AL-04 error

    When you got the replacement board did it have any chipsets installed, or did you move the chipsets from your bad board to the new one?

    Re: Bar puller problem

    I wouldn't change the spindle speed arrival check if it were me. Feed/Rev and threading shouldn't work if it doesn't know how fast it's going.

    I haven't touched a Fanuc control in almost a year, so I may be off on my thinking here....

    Re: E-stop

    If you can jumper around the EStop string then obviously something in the "middle" is keeping it down. Can you post a picture or a scan of the EStop diagram?

    Also, did you find what caused the 2...

    Re: FladderIII

    No, this isn't correct. From what you put above, it looks like you're trying to move Byte F7 and 8 into R27 and 28, and the MF signal you have driving the function is part of the same byte you're...

    You say you pulled the ladder out in an SRAM? There is no way to separate a ladder file from an SRAM file.

    The 15M has capability to do onscreen edits. If you want to edit in what was once FAPT,...

    Controlled axis count is indeed an option. I'm not sure where your Fanuc guy is getting his info but to say it must have a 6 axis control card is not entirely accurate unless you provided him data...

    Ok, from looking at your posts on "the other CNC" site, I need some more clarification on your hardware setup.

    Re: 1911 frame

    From looking at my 1911, I think the hardest part would be clearing out the mag area. The fixturing/long tooling/small tooling to clean it out well looks like it would be a pain.

    I cant say for sure if it's enough because I don't know what all you're trying to control.

    I know for a fact it is done the same way on the 840D as it is on Fanuc. The C control should read this as well if I remember correctly:
