    Default Bar Code MACRO Variables????

    Does anyone out there have any experience in using a barcode reader to populate MACRO variables on Fanuc machining centers?

    We do a lot of 1-off machining and would like to have a way to quickly input the variables.

    Default Bar code MDI?

    Were you thinking of bar code MDI directly into the control or into some other utility like Excel or Word?

    Default Bar code input

    Unless your machine has a true PC front end, I can't imagine how you could. A normal CNC control would not be able to support the bar cod scanner's driver first off then you would need to load the bar code's font. I am rolling out a bar code driven job tracking system and later a app to automatically generate programs based on part numbers(parametric program and the variables will be pulled out of an existing design data base) I purchased a lot of 20 PCs on ebay and am putting one at each of my CNCs. In a lot the PCs were cheap around $135 each. I don't know if that helps but it is how we got around a similar issue.

    Regards
