Re: Z axis Jog while running

We do have synchronous I/O commands . It has been tested with a laser cutter running linear motors at 3000"/min + cutting heating elements for car seats. It's was so fast you could barely see it. (Not an Acorn though but synchronous I/O is the same) M300 – Fast Synchronous I/O update There are 32 u...

Re: POST PROCESSOR QUESTIONS

Your mfunc76.mac is actually named mfunc76.mac.mac For the life of me I'll never understand why Windows defaults to NOT show file extensions. Only BAD things can happen by hiding file extensions. Rename your file to mfunc76.mac ex: mytextfile.txt could easily be mytextfile.txt.exe a user runs mytext...

Re: ATC Macro / PLC Help please

No. As you surmised, there is an initialize feature in Acorn that allows the user to jog to the turret position #1 and then initialize the tool changer. From that point on, the control knows where it is at. If it ever lost position due to a fault in the middle of a tool change, it can always be re-i...

Re: ATC Macro / PLC Help please

The Acorn already has a PLC that can handle this far better than an Arduino. The code I posted if for an Acorn PLC.

Does your turret reverse to lock?

Does your turret rotate in only one direction?

When rotating, does the turret count up ie.. 1 to 2 to 3 etc.. or down 3 to 2 to 1..?
