I have just put in a fedek DH-65 bar feed onto a YCM GT200 lathe and can't seem to figure out how to get the barfeeder to reload a new bar. I have got it so that it will auto feed the bar when called by the lathe, but cannot get it to pick up a new length of bar. Any help? Suggestions? Programs?
Here are a couple pages that may help.
I'm having the same issue with loading a new bar as well. Out turning center is a Viper lathe with Fanuc O-TD control. I've messed with all the proximity switches and they work, but it won't load a new bar... I'd use the little sub-program listed above but I don't know what the omitted M Codes for Loading the Bars are. Anyone know?
