    Part counter G code

    Is there any way to program a part count in g code for an M-32 control or do you have to run a sub program to count?

    M30 should trigger part counter, if I recall correctly. Have not done G-code on a Mazak since 2002.

    Hopefully someone current on Mazak will reply. It has been more than 6 years since I touched one and I do not have an documentation for Mazak codes available.

    This is from memory and applies to Fusion and later controls, but it could work on m-32

    I think it's M198 and can use a few more words in the line, in G code. It is the g code version of the mazatrol end unit, which toggles continuous/single cycle, parts count yes/no and is tied into the mazatrol parts count display.

    I think the format and specifics can be found in a mazatrol eia programming manual?
