Fanuc 11M power up problem

Tue, 07/10/2018 - 10:26
Hello all,

I have a 1986 Shizuoka B-5V 4 axis mill that I have been operating for about 12 years. It is equipped with a Fanuc 11M control. The machine has been rock solid reliable except for a few tool changer issues.

Recently it started having issues powering up. First problem was I could not zero out all 4 axis. It never threw a trouble code. The control would get confused and select the wrong axis during zero setting. This happened for a number of power ups until the CRT would not even come on when I hit the power on button. Most of the panel lights would light up and the coolant pump would turn on when I hit the power on button. Picture attached below.

I began by checking fuses and found 2 blown 5 amp fuses on the tape reader. I replaced the fuses and the new ones blew immediately on power up. I have never used the tape reader and I suspect these fuses could have been blown when I purchased the machine. I disconnected the tape reader power and ribbon cables and tried to power up again. No difference.

Next I confirmed that the motherboard was getting power. I then replaced the motherboard which did not correct the problem. Next I replaced the CRT/MDI board in the control box. This also did not fix the problem.


Does anyone know a good Fanuc repair guy near southeast Pennsylvania?

Problem with tool magazine. Okuma howa fanuc 6m

Thu, 07/05/2018 - 10:30
Hello everybody,

I'm currently using the Okuma howa 5VA fanuc 6m.

I got a problem about the tools magazine. It cannot replace the tools as usual. The tool wouldn't change from vertical to horizontal position and eventually it can't come back into place in the magazine.

This problem started when i replace the battery that kept the parameter alive. It is located at ( or near) the magazine. And i encountered the problem i mentioned above.

I would be appreciate if someone helps me with this.

2D drawings are replaced by 3D models?

Thu, 07/05/2018 - 01:40
I have heard the news that 2D illustrations are supplanted by 3D models? 2D is the best alternative to pick when you are confronting tight due date and outlines required are a solitary segment or a solitary part as essential geometries are anything but difficult to produce utilizing 2D CAD instruments.

Hello there,

I recently upgraded the new memory , after installing the from board , I am getting system label error.

Any help?

Your best option at this point is going to be to try calling Mori Seiki and giving them the serial number and hope they have an original copy. Another longshot is to call Fanuc and give them the serial number off the control and they may have a copy. Another stretch is to look in the power cabinet and see if you have any onion paper that has the original copy of the machine put there by the MTB for cases like this but they have a tendency to disappear.

Other then the above you need to find someone with the same make model machine and control to try and get a copy of the parameters and PMC data. The hard part to that is working out the options that may or may not be in your machine that was in the copy. The CNC parameters and programs can be loaded via RS232. The PMC data will have to be entered by hand.

I wish I had better news for you. If you get a backup I can walk you thru the procedure to restating the machine via IPL mode and then entering in all the data.


MAC V1E with Fanuc 0mb and lost Parameters

Thu, 06/14/2018 - 12:08
Hi, i have a Takiswa MAC V1E with Fanuc 0mb and lost Parameters. My problem is i have no documentation.
I can start it up with some parameters i have found in the internet without errors but the 900 ones are missing. But i am not able to enter a program.
I switch to edit mode but when i hit the program softkey i get no cursor to enter O0001.
Maybe someone can help me with the parameters.


In need of some serious help! Total newbie!!!

Tue, 06/12/2018 - 18:52
Here is some more details I hope will help, I supplied the computer and downloaded the drivers, I am pretty sure of this.

Ok so all of the components are Keling tech or at least what I have found says so. The power supply is a KL-350-36 I have metered it and it is supplying 64.6 v to the Keling-4030 controllers(there are 3 of them x,y,z.) it also has 5.22 v going into the pul+, it has5.22 go in into the dir+. It also has 3.76 at the pul- and the dri-. At the c10 parallel port interface card it has at pin2 -7, 3.75v. This is not hooked up to the computer with these readings. On the parallel port of the computer pin2 in reading 4.63v and goes to 4.64 when the arrow is pressed on the keyboard. Pin3 is reading .18v and when the narrowest is pressed it goes to 4.87v. Pin4 and pin6 are the same as pin2, and pin5 and pin7 are the same as pin3. The motors are KL-23h276-30-8B. Yes I have visited Keling techs website and followed there diagrams. Unfortunately the people I bought it from had no info or paperwork, so I am going by what I can find online. Hope this is what you were talking about. Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Z Axis crashes while in cnc program execution but not often, do not know the cause ?

Sat, 06/09/2018 - 11:31
The CNC is built for Welding Application and the issue is all about the crash happens in Z axis.Did not know the reason for the cause and this problem doesnt occurs often.Need to know whether these following reasons can affect the performance of the CNC Controller.The CNC works fine if it runs in ideal condition without welding but while welding it occurs the same problem.

1. Does welding polarity can affect the servo motor performance?

2. Does the Harmonics disturbs the signals of the servo motor?

Alert code when G43 is not active on Fanuc OI-MD Control

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 12:40
#4008 contains 43, 44 or 49 whichever is active. Can check this value wherever desirable.

Which spindle?

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 04:15
Not certain if there's something preferable and quicker over a DeWalt 611

some say for aluminum that it does the activity yet not respectable and you need to go moderate.

What shafts do you all have/prescribe for cutting aluminum

I have 120v attachments
