Hi all, I am trying to figure out a barfeeder that has been in our shop long before I started there and that never had been used and no one even knows how to use it. The Lathe is a SQT-250my with 640T controller. The barfeeder is capable of setting feed lengths and ejection lengths etc... I have gotten a lil start with the programming of it but have hit a wall and do not have a solution.
My program looks like this
matl info: ........
M code: 6 68 69
M code 7
This program will get the chuck opend and pusher comes and pushes out bar, pusher retracts, closes chuck and then nothing. The green auto mode light is on but the spindle dosnt start and turret dosnt move....
Oh the turret will change to the first tool up but then just sits there after that.
Im sure this programing is completly wrong. Hopefully someone here can help me out. Maybe even have a sample program to give me visual. Oh and if anyone has a good end of bar procedure to automatically load the new bar.
Thanks in advance for any help. I really appreciate it.
