Hi everyone,
I have been asked by a customer of mine in the UK if it is possible to create a sub program / macro that could check the position of the upper and lower turrets before a part transfer between spindles happens as a safety check. From my experience on other machine tools of this type for example Okuma I can check turret positions using system variables to make sure turrets are in safe positions and create an alarm condition if this is not correct.

I am not familiar of what is available on Nakamura WT-300 type machines to check this type of thing. The UK agents for Nakamura are not too helpful and would want paying for this help!!!

Hope someone can help.
