    Default FS31iB- Position Switch Option

    Dear Experts

    We have HMC with Big Pallet hence in Manual Mode if pallet is rotated in as is condition from Loading side, Pallet would collide hence Z is moved by 100 mm and then rotated. and this is operator dependent, in case operator forgets to move Z before pallet rotation there wud be collision

    Please revert if Position switch would fix this issue (In Manual Mode)

    Also if Position Switch function is an option or can be set via 6900 series parameters

    Before posting, I have gone thro previous posts on to this but could gain much out of the discussions

    In auto mode, it is taken care already by program thro which Z is moved inside 100 mm before rotation

    Regards

    Look in your parameter manual for parameters 6071 - 6089. You can write a small Subroutine or Macro that will control the manual pallet change to the way that is safe. You store it as Subroutine 9001-9009 or as Macro in 9020-9029. Then choose an unused M code that the operator will type in using MDI. It's faster to type in an M code anyway.

    I'm surprised you don't seem to have a Pallet Change M code already.

    The parameter manual will explain this better then I have.

    Position switches would work but you need to set the zone in parameters then update the logic to not allow any specific movement when Z is in that said position.
    So yes it can work, but not just through those parameters.

    Dear Experts
    Continuing above thread, we have two similar HMCs machining different and big components. In case of one HMC , there is interlock provided to make sure that B is rotated only when Z is away by -100 mm, we plan to introduce same interlock in 2nd HMC as well.

    We tried by making Position switch parameters in this 2nd HMC same as 1st one, still interlock not working please advise what else needs to be done?

    Regards

    I believe like i explained earlier custom software needs to written.

    I am located in michigan, and we do this type of work if you need it.
    Thanks,
