Hexalobular (Torx) Progarmming

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 21:50

Can anyone help me in making a program of torx (male) T8? what's the correct format?
I'm using a screw machine GT-26 Tornos. What happens to my program is the outcome
is not exactly its shape. Thanks a lot.

PS - we're not using a cam software here in our screw machine so I'm doing it manually

Could you send me the information as well . I have the same alarm on my Daewoo. Thanks. (

can someone help me for an SL25 -FANUC 16T controller

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 00:40
I am a cnc programmer and I have a problem with a FANUC 16T controller on a SL25 lathe, who don't have correct motion in circular interpolation .
I have controlled the servo parameters and are correct. Linear movements are correct and maintain the dimensions programmed in the cnc program. For circular movements, the axes have a motion according to the attached image, as if the center of the circle is not calculated correctly.
The company qualified my the program incorrectly, but after we did a test for the profile attached , we came to the conclusion that the machine does not correctly execute the circular interpolation.
If you have any suggestion regarding the circular motion error, and if is possible I fix that from the machine parameters, I'd be grateful to be able to fix the errors.

Thanks, Attached Images

Okuma MC3VA Z axis ballscrew

Sat, 04/07/2018 - 20:53
My Okuma MC3VA VMC with OSP500M-G operating system is experiencing clunky operation and often becomes stuck in the Z axis operation resulting in a "Dif Over" alarm. I'm looking for advice or instructions on adjusting or replacing the Z axis ballscrew assembly. Since I have been unable to obtain the proper manual, if anyone has instructions on this procedure that they could share with me it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

Machine works okay.
When I activate the vacuum, it does not lower the boundaries.
When I extinguish the vacuum pump, lower the bumper, start working.
Then there is no vacuum.
It would help me to be a pneumatic scheme to overthrow the pneumatic attachments.
Of course, every advice was welcome.

Mori Seiki SL 7 - zero return not working

Mon, 04/02/2018 - 15:36
I have a Mori Seiki SL 7 lathe with Fanuc 6T - B control. Referece for both axis is not working in zero return mode in selector swich by jogging using jog switch. Both axis are moving to end limit without catching reference point. But, in MDI mode, using code, zreo return is working ok for both axis. Can somebody help me to solve this problem? The machine was down for about one year because of spindle problem and now it is solved. During down time, the machine was made on every day and manual dry movements were done. All the parameter values remain same as original. Battery backup is ok. Now, the machine is working ok in auto mode after referencing in MDI mode. I want some help to solve referencing in zero return mode.Thanks.

Mori Mapps PCMCIA(compact flash) format to reload Mapps unit

Tue, 03/27/2018 - 21:30
[QUOTE=Petro;2431]Hi Chap,

Wow thanks for the info! Never thought I would find anyone that would have taken on this project themselves to accomplished this. From what I heard, someone said that Mapps1 is formatted different then Mapps II/III as you have said as well as the file directory content/structure from what I remember. Mapps I is one folder with the version number and MappsII/III has many folders. I also noticed that as well about the fixed verses removable disk. I actually just purchased a compact flash to IDE adapter yesterday and waiting delivery to try to format it like a hard fixed disk so it does not show up as a removable disk. Not sure if this will work, but I was going to try it. Then my thought was to try a ghost image on a mapps card and image it to another to duplicate the format which it sounds like you did something similar. Think this would work to make it fixed disk? However its only a Mapps-I card I still need to find a Mapps II and III card to do the same if it works.

One thing I noticed in the backup files from a formatted MappII or Mapps III (don
