I have always always from setting up days to training had it so my X zero is the center of my ID pot.
IE you never put an X offset in a drill.
Now this new company i have started for, have a few habits one of them being i believe its wrong Q setting the side of drills as the X zero is out.
This is a straight 2 axis lathe.
To get the zero back i can input the value in the External offset, or i used to use parameters to correct this but i cannot remember the parameters.
Also once this is done i will need to reset the Qsetter for them, any ideas on the parameters for this as i cant find the manual.
Its a meldas 500l series.
I know this is an old post but ....
ACCESSING THE MACHINE PARAMETERS
1. GO TO THE ALARM/ DIAGN SCREEN
2. PRESS THE PLC-I/F MENU
3. KEY IN 1001 FOR THE DEVICE, CURSOR RIGHT 2 TIMES AND KEY IN M UNDER MODE
4. PRESS THE INPUT KEY, AND THE (1001) ( ) ( M), WILL DISAPPEAR
5. GO TO THE TOOL/ PARAM SCREEN
These parameters are from a M625 manual the numbers may be different but the parameter name should be the same
