we just purchased a used maxim 630 and i'm having trouble getting the pallet offsets to work. I can set a fixture offset for pallet 1 but having trouble activating the offsets for pallet two.
It is a bit complicated. In a two only palet system:
- In ProgramMagnament->DirMgnt You must assign (modify) the ID column to match a program with a palet number. The others programs must remain as -1
- Inside the program, in EditMode, You must begin the program with a :G129PxCy x=Palet number y=Offset table (see below)
- In OFFSETS (a bit nasty inside this) there will be through SELECT touch 4 options. Only 3 are needed. First select the top option. In this choose the palet number and modify the STATUS to PRESENT. With the wanted palet highlighted, go to SELECT and touch on the second option. You must select a table changing the STATUS also to PRESENT and the ID to match the palet number. With the wanted table highlighted, go to SELECT and choose the 3er one. Now You have several rows. Fill the needed rows. I usually fill one row per 90º angle (0º 90º 180º 270º) less o more (you will see how many you need). Several offset per angle are allowed.
- Back to the program, Edit Mode, You can use that offsets with G0,G1,G2 or G3 interpolation. Are modal until ESC is pressed. The form is (i.e.):
-If persist ProgramID<>PaletID, try in MDI G129PxCy to make match the correct palet.
