View Full Version : changing rapid travel on jog

06-05-2012, 11:12 AM
We have a SKT-700L running on fanuc 21-i controls. I wanted to see if we could speed up the rapid travel speed when using jog. Even if I put the rapid travel at 100%, the turret moves too slow. When we use the G00 code on the program the turret moves much faster. I know there is a way to alter the ipm's in the parameters, but I wanted to know if anyone knows the actual procedures to do so.

With door open or door closed?

The doors are open most of the time, but we tricked the sensors into thinking that the doors are always closed.

i don´t have any PMC of this machine but this is PC Parameter protected...i gess.

as when you want to check it by yourself, you should try 25%/50% and 100% override
it will be the same speed.
and also i think your machine is just running with 25% as i checkt it on my machine and with some DData i could switch between 25% and 50% and turn on also 100%on, but this is really fast so i wouldn´t reccomend it but if you like i can try to get the PMC and tell you which d data should be activated.

PS set D 3.7 and you will see when you click on 25%/50% rapid it will be much faster as it disable the 25% but activate the 50% ( i think this would be enough..... if you think 25% is too slow)

1 : 50%
0 : 25% (*)

Turning on D3.7 worked like a charm. I went ahead and turned on D3.4 as well. That one increased the manual rapid when its at 100%. Thanks for the help!
