    Kitamura H400 Fanuc 15 Gear change

    It's a long story, lol. The machine worked fine when I bought it, except for an ATC error. I think a proximity switch, but an easy fix. After moving it, everything worked manually, except the atc, but programs always gave a 'start rejected' error. Talked with dozens of techs, and nobody had...

    Kitamura H400 Fanuc 15 Gear change

    Thanks! I think this is the right track. Could I get the rest of your 5600-5803 parameters? The ones you listed above match mine, but I've got some questions on others. 5621-5628 are the maximum spindle speed corresponding to gear #n, and 5641-5647 are spindle speed at gear switching points...

    Kitamura H400 Fanuc 15 Gear change

    Interesting, mine worked right when I bought it. Had a different issue after I moved it and it took me a few years to get around to sorting it all out. Reloaded the parameters I had downloaded before the move.

    Kitamura H400 Fanuc 15 Gear change

    Yeah... my leds aren't working. I did load all of the keep relays, counters and data parameters. Mine is a 1995.

    Kitamura H400 Fanuc 15 Gear change

    I have a Kitamura H400 with 15M control that I'm trying to bring back to life. Reloaded parameters. 10k spindle. It runs about 40% of the commanded value. I'm thinking it doesn't know what gear it's in. I can't find any M codes to change gears, does it do this automatically based on the...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    I agree it’s bad practice, that’s why I didn’t want this to turn into a discussion about offsets. They didn’t teach us the proper way to set offsets or use work offsets in trade school. The lathe there had a presetter arm, we would just touch off with it and go from there. I bought this lathe...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    Here is a program in its entirety. Tool 4 is a groove/cutoff, tool 6 is a barpuller, tool 2 is a knurling tool. I get 21 pieces from a bar. The bar is pulled, the left end knurled, and piece is cutoff with some edge breaking. Please excuse the lower case letters, it was faster to type this...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    I know why I need to rehome after reset, that is not the issue. That’s a topic that I’m sure is covered in other threads, probably ‘intro to offsets’ or something like that. ‘Releasing the logic’ is really what I’m after. Documentation I have for the machine doesn’t cover it keep relays but...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    Sorry guys, I'm really not trying hide anything or keep anything out, just trying to keep it simple. This issue doesn't apply to any specific program so most of the code is irrelevant. I can make a simple program such as: O0001; M69; G04 P1000; M68; M30; Foot pedal works fine beforehand. Run...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    Thanks for the replies, I've been tied up and couldn't get back on here. I think I did have the g99/98 mixed up when I typed this. I did't include the rest of the code b/c it seemed irrelevant. If i run a program like this with no m68/69, it runs fine, returns to the start of the program...

    Fanuc chuck programming

    I have an old Yam lathe with a Fanuc 11T control. I’m using a bar puller with M68 & M69. Everything works fine, but after the end of the program, the foot pedal for the chuck doesn’t function until I push reset. This causes me to lose position and need to rehome before the next cycle. Is...

    Issues with Kitamura HMC tool changer

    I recently bought a 1995 Kitamura H400, Fanuc 15m control. It had a similar toolchange problem when I got it, but I couldn't pass it up for the price. I'm new to these particular machines, and could use some help troubleshooting. Kitamura tech guy walked me through diagnosis and said the...

    Need help with international purchase

    Thanks for the suggestions. One issue is that I don't currently have a business, I'm operating as "self-employed". I think the bigger issue though is that Polish company doesn't answer most of the emails. I think I'll try Toolmex. Nate

    Siemens 810d retrofit

    I am looking for someone that has worked with Siemens 810d controls as retrofits. I have a polish machine with this control It has lost its parameters, and nobody in Poland will answer an email for me, and Siemens wasn't that helpful. I was thinking that since this control was sold as a...
