I've had two of these lathes for quite a few years now. One with a air bar feeder and one setup as a chucker. I set the chucker up with a bar puller today and got it to work, but I'd like to get the machine not to do it in rapid feed rate. When I enter g code into the program(G95) feed per min and use G1 with a feed rate the machine won't allow it without the spindle turning. I can't pull the bar that way. Has anyone out there used a bar puller with powerpath 15 (dx32 control) and programed the machine to move without the spindle turning.
It was a simple error in my programing.... I mixed up G94 and G95 in the program.
G94 is inches per Min and G95 is inches per Rev.
