Fanuc Retrofit

Hi I was just wondering if anyone has done an upgrade to fit KMotion on a Fanuc machine. From what I can see, the following is possible: 1) Using a Pico board, one can get the encoder signals of the Fanuc Red (3 Phase brushless) motors 2) Interfacing to The Fanuc drives seems to be a challenge as th...

Loops and Threads

Hi, I need to write a program to do intermittent Spray Mist Control. I thought of using a loop which can then pull the I/O pin low for Time A and wait for Time B before doing it again. Some questions: 1) I can start the loop as a forever loop but how do I stop it? 2) The loop needs to run at the sam...

Axis Homing in Gcode

Hi Tom I have a Z axis homing C program which works fine on an older machine with manual tool changer. I noticed that sometimes the mechanical shock of releasing the draw bar would cause movement of the axis which is not picked up by the scales. So I thought I could just run the Homing program after...

Re: Zero Work Offsets using Probe

Thanks Tom, I should have checked. I converted the C programs to functions and then I could just call them from the homing program to set the fixture offsets. Just a few lines of code.

Thanks Moray

Next I need to update the tool length on the tool table setting.The idea is to 1) Determine the selected tool on the screen 2) Set the selected tool length in the table to 0 3) Read t...
