Re: Setting up tools on a lathe

There are, of course, many machines with built-in tool setter arms.

On those machines, the tool setter is not on the spindle centerline.

Therefore, an off-center tool setter is a normal condition that the software should be written to handle.

Re: Actualizacion EMCO VCM 300

For the probe-detect signal, connect pin 2 or 3 (the 12V COM) to pin 9 (INP771) of the Oak PROBE header. With the probe-trip signal on pin 8 (INP769) and the probe-detect signal on pin 9 (INP771), you would set: - Parameter 11 = 50769 - Parameter 18 = 50771 Those are the default values for those par...

Re: Actualizacion EMCO VCM 300

Yes, you can connect a probe via the MI8 interface to the Centroid control. If you want to use the "PROBE" header on the Oak, then you would wire the B6 and B7 terminals to pins 3 and 8 of the Oak PROBE header. If you want to use ordinary PLC inputs (e.g. any of INP13-INP16 on the Oak) the...

Re: ENA +/- on G0678

I believe there is a bug in Acorn CNC12 v5.10 (and maybe earlier versions as well; I only had the opportunity to observe v5.10), by which inverting the enable outputs does not work. Whether inverted or not, the enable outputs are active (LED green, header terminal pulled low) when the axis is suppos...

Re: One Axis only

Those parameter settings look right. The OpticDirect becomes drive #1, and the Oak drive interface headers become drives #2 - #5. The OpticDirect encoder input, as the first DriveBus device, is encoder #7. The encoder inputs on the Oak headers remain #1 - #4. The PLC logic has to account for the cha...

Re: WMPG =0 (Set Zero)

No, if you are on the Part Setup screen, then you use the F10 key on the keyboard. When you press F10, the Part Setup screen will set the DRO, compensating for the edge finder at the same time. The WMPG "=0" key only works if you are at the CNC12 main screen, and no automatic program cycle...

Re: Repair / Retrofit of Milling/Machining Center TRUMP B8AC

Please post a Report. What is the blue wire you have connected to INP12? Normally, that is where the wire from the "RUN" terminal on the Mitsubishi VFD would connect. The Mitsubishi evidently does not have a "zero speed" output, but if you use "RUN" and invert it, you g...

Re: Variable for tool description

I think your answer, for now, is no. CNC12 does not make the Description field from the Tool Library available in a CNC system variable. That would be a worthwhile enhancement. However: If you call the default non-ATC M6 (either by deleting any custom M6 macro, or by calling "M6" from your...

Re: WNPG =0 (Set Zero)

Also, are you looking at local work coordinates (e.g. WCS #1, G54) on the DRO; or are you looking at Machine Coordinates.

Machine coordinates will not change when you set part zero with the "=0" key, but local WCS coordinates should change.
