Does anybody know the procedure to setup the work clamps safety zones for a Strippit FC1000SXP Turret Punch Press?
Having Fanuc 0PC manuals, I read everything about this subject, but I could not make it work.
Clamps sensor works OK, I can see it working on DIAGS screen.
I found several parameters involved, all seems to be OK. (4000, 4002, 4470 to 4481).
Although there are several custom macros in the CNC, I could not find one set to be called with M35 command (start automatic work clamps scan). There should be a call to G32 which, according to manual, is Fanuc command for scan. Could not find it either. May be there is a missing macro. All macros listed in original Strippit papers are loaded in memory, as well as CNC and PMC parameters.
On M35 run, machine scans workclamps, then sets only safety Zone 1 (when there should be set also Zone 2 because there are 2 workclamps installed). Zone 1 value is table width instead of clamp width. Machine do not punch below 3.5 inches (88.9mm), value also loaded in Zone 1. Same behaviour on manual setting of safety zones.
Thank you for your help.

Hello Me, Hello everyone:
After some work, I solved it. I loaded new macros.
It seems that macros in CNC memory were not the correct ones.
I hope this can help to someone else.
