I don't know if I'm in the correct forum, there are so many to choose from....
I have a Kerney & Trecker horizontal machining center and we just had the probing fixed so I want to use it. Specifically, I would like to do an auto B-axis alignment which will update the fixture offsets for B after aligning the the part surface perpendicular to the spindle centerline. They have a book called "Advanced Programming Language" and looking through it I can't find what I need. There is an example:
X is the required incremental distance value which I understand. The Z is some value past the part surface which I understand to insure probe contact. The B0 command is used to trigger the probe (don't really know what that means). The E is optional. And I can't find anywhere in the book how to automatically update the fixture offsets for B-axis, even though it says it can be done.
I am hoping to get lucky and run into someone familiar with APL on K & T's!
Any help is appreciated...
