    Wire Edm CAM for new Fanuc C400iC

    Hi BajaFire Thanks for the info. I had a Sodick before which used specific C and H ie C121 H220 and was saved in the prog but with the fanuc the whole tec file is stored in the header of the prog or you use S1 D1 etc and pick tec on the machine to go with the prog. This just seems strange...

    Mirror program on fanuc robocut with G codes

    Hi Guys Is there G codes to add at start of prog on Fanuc control to flip the prog in x or y and change x and y ? On my old Sodick it used to be G05 or G06 or G08 or combination to get the required orientation rather than reprogramming on the Cam. Best regards Kev :cool:
