    Why not use IPR for everything.

    I'm with you. I cannot think of one single reason to use ipm if your spindle, tool or part is turning. I converted the shop I work at to ipr for everything. People I trained seemed to understand the ipr concept easier. I tell them to look in the catalog for speed and feed and darn near all cutting tool manufacturers use feed per tooth and sfm recommendations. Why add another calculation. But. You have to understand both because some older mills can't use G95.

    Tool path trim not working

    I did eventually find a better tool path (flowline) were I don't need to trim. It still seemed odd that the trim path just disappears and doesn't work without warning. Thanks
  3. 2020 I am in a lathe definition using a mill waterline tool path in the right tool plane. I have a box drawn in front view were I want to trim the tool path out of. I select trim, then select my box and then nothing happens. The trim tool path is in the op manager with no geometry selected. As soon as I click on anything in the op manager the trim tool path disappears..... Anyone seen this?

    write protect of common #variable

    Not sure but maybe another solution; N100 #510=0 #3000=1(change drill, 13) N200 #512=0 #3000=2(Change drill, 21) Etc

    macros / subprogram resources

    Try M98<2682082B> or M99<2682082B> Or some combination with those brackets.
  6. I think I've seen that when the chip conveyor gets jammed up. Check the breakers for one that's tripped.
  7. You folks with horizontal Mills. How often do you dechipe the index tables? Every day, every load, every shift, etc. Are chips between the pallet and table an issue normally? Thanks
  8. How are you guys finding these p-code macro variables? I have found a few thru trial and error but is there another place to find them? Seems like they are a well kept secret

    Spindle warm up Fanuc 30-I

    The time will be expressed in 24 hour format. Also 5:00 am will be something like 500. To find out the macro time format type in #100=#3012
  10. I haven't seen that on our nty3's, but wouldn't normally end the cycle with the X move at N1001. I would end it at N1001G01Z-1.013.

    I think You need the Q value on every line you want to peck. lathes dont usually have G81 so G83 no Q no peck.

    Mazak local subroutines?

    for some reason on mazak lathe controls a local sub call is with a Q and not an H. same format and rules though. M98Q9901 I usually number my local subs starting at N9901. My operations use N100,N200,N300 etc. That way i never worry about having a double.

    Lathe Setup

    Hose clamp a surface indicator to the stock. Hose Clamps are cheap, have lots of range, and hold the indicator tight.

    IPM orIPR

    i could never figure out why mills are typically IPM. I have never got an answer besides "Thats how mills are programmed". I think it only makes sense if thats how you learned, otherwise it doesnt make sense. Usually we are trying to eliminate extra calculations. Has anyone ever seen manufacturers recommended feed and speeds expressed as IPM?

    Multi-tasking Lathes

    NTY3= Great for small complicated bar work, Ø40mm max. Lower turret comes from the left side so you want to do most of your lower turning on the left spindle, Otherwise Chips will destroy the lower turret wipers over and over again. This might be common with all lower turret style machines, i dont know. Pretty much unlimited capabilities and the most user friendly Canned cycles ever. The NT Nurse side of the Fanuc control is fantastic. The Y axis interlocks are annoying when not in milling mode. 4"ish max stickout on drills and boring bars before you hit the way covers. I would purchase another one for the right work.
