I have a minor programming problem using live tooling in my Churchill Omega 65 with Fanuc 18t.
As I am going to mill a surface, using the Y-axis, I want to lock the spindle (M50) But if I insert the M50 in my program the machine stop moving as soon as it meets a G1 block. There is no alarm showing. The machine just have a green light in the cycle start button, as when it is machining.
If I run the same program, but without the M50, it will work fine.
M50 (spindle lock)
G0 Z0 X60 Y60
G1 Y-60 F160
G0 X200 Z200 Y0
Hope someone can give a suggestion, that can solve my small issue.
Thanks a lot!
