X-axis stops moving during machining cycle with no alarms

Troubleshooting problems when no alarms occur are always fun. In this case it was an intermittent problem where I happen to get it to stay in a condition to troubleshoot. The main goal of any troubleshooting is to repeat the problem or troubleshoot when it is in the current fault condition. With this problem I was lucky to have the problem occur and catch it in time before it changed back.

Feedrate Slows Down for No Reason During Machining

Had this problem occur on a machine where the customer was milling across a long part. During the machining process the feedrate slows down and speeds up constantly. After troubleshooting the feedrate problem I determined that the spindle speed was slowing down as well. When the spindle speed slows down the feedrate automatically comps to maintain the recommended rate of removal and changing with the spindle speed.

If the RS232 port does not work any more.

What if the RS232 port is bad or not working on your Fanuc control?

Recieved this from a Member of for if you have a bad RS232 Port on a main board or some fanuc controls. Since most fanucs have two ports you can just swap the plug to the other port that is not being used and have a fully functional RS232 port. Then use a different channel for setting your RS232 settings. Wish I would have known this years ago or thought of it.

Fanuc Powermate F alarm 090 224 on machine power up.

A Fanuc Powermate F alarm 090 224 occurred on a customers machine at power up. Had tried to walk him through resetting the powermate home position several times but the original procedure would not work. The 090 and 224 alarm indicates a lost home position. However batteries were ok and they were replaced as a precaution. The problem was that it was impossible to reset the home position and it would not take. Fanuc Powermate drives often are stubborn from my experience when setting there home positions.

301 B axis communication error on fanuc control

301 B axis communication error came up on a fanuc controlled machine that had scales for the B- axis or rotation of table. After troubleshooting everything and getting down to that it had to be the scale. Ordered a new scale and tried it. Unfortunitly the same alarm occured. After looking into the parameters I was able to tell that someone had turned off the scale at one time because all the paramters had told me so except for one. Parameter 1815 bit 1, bit4, and bit 5 were all 1's.
