Amada Laser

Recommended Posts

We have an Amada laser and are trying to figure a few things out with programming it. We tried to use the M98 call to make a grid macro cutout but that ran into excess memory errors. So we are trying the subprogram approach. This is what we tried.

 

Main program

 

G92 X0. Y0.

G65 P0165 L10

M30

 

Sub program.

G90 X0. Y0.

Laser on

cut

cut

cut

cut

G92 X0. Y2.625

G99

 

We keep getting the machine stuck on the G99 line of code. It doesn't return to the top of the subprogram in the new starting location that is incremental Y2.625 to the new start point. I don't know Fanuc controllers that well only Haas.

 

On the Haas lathes I do a G10 W-1. at the end of the program to get the same effect but i get very confused about g92.

 

Is g92 absolute from the 1st one or incremental?

 

Most videos talking about it stop after the 2nd part, but what about the 3rd part.
