I wrote a live tool program for LB15.
It alarms out on line N50.
I can't find the error and why. Please help
(7/8" EM [.875"], 2" long)
N30 X3.06 Z.75 C180 M8 M13 SB=2600 T707
N35 G181 X3.06 Z-1.0 C180 K1.2 F.010
N45 G0 X2.124
N50 G181 X2.124 Z0.0 C180 K1.2 F.010 (Alarm 2417 on this line)
N65 M12 M9
N70 X30 Z30 M1
Does it do the hole on the first line? Cause that must have taken a long time at F.01. Just being a smart ass If the spindle is locked .01 IPM is really slow, I'm guessing that is your error
The beaten path, is exclusively for beaten men.
I'm not sure if that is the case, but you may have hit the area
There is a G95 ( Feed per Rev ) on the safety line N5
so it's running at 0.010" per Rev, & it would be linked to both the Spindle & Feedrate over-ride pots - if either are turned down, you may go below the minimum RPM spec
- normal milling is done using a G94 ( Feed per minute ), this would seperate those pots, so, by adjusting one doesn't affect the other
PS - always specify a default ( G95 ) on these machines before a toolchange ( after using an M tool ) to put you back into lathe mode
According to the book:
2417 MULTI-MACHINING CYCLE I,K
In G181 through G184 and G189 mode cycle, both I and K or neither I nor K is designated. (I,K shift amount) In G181 through G184 and G189 mode cycle, designated I and K values are not: 0 ≤ I, K ≤ 99999.999, 0 ≤ J ≤ 99999.999 In G185 through G188 mode cycle, designated I and K values are not: -99999.999 ≤ I, K ≤ 99999.999 G181: Drilling cycle G182: Boring cycle G183: Deep hole drilling cycle G184: Tapping cycle G189: Reaming, boring cycle
[Code] None->Both I and K commands are designated.
FFFFFFFF->I or K command is omitted. Others->Hexadecimal number of I and K values
[Probable Faulty Locations] Faulty program (compound fixed cycle block) Program Example:G181 X60 Z75 C0 F40
[Measures to Take] Check the I or K command in the compound fixed cycle block. G181 X60 Z75 C0 K48 F40
[Related Specifications] Multi-machining model
I think your Feed is fine since it will use the rpm of the M-spindle in this case and you are running in G95. You may be having trouble with line N45. Try to put a Z coordinate start point on that line. You already have a K command in the G181 line so it references the start point to determine where to calculate cycle positions from. It may not be "seeing" a valid start point in Z.
