    Fanuc A0-1 series stops cutting or fluctuates

    I have a older Fanuc (1993) with a series W 16A controller. I finally got it up and running and have sued it some but mostly for thinner stuff. Burned a 1.5 inch block the other day and it cut ok but most of it was radius and was slow. It's slow anyway as I can't use the cutting tech settings...

    Fanuc Robocut-Possible to change e-pack while running program?

    Are you using M0 to stop and take the slug out them trying to start again? My machine is older than yours I think and I believer I can do what you are asking by using the S command right after starting it back up. I do use a M86 before the S as well. Only done if a time or 2 so I'll check and...

    What are good EDM machines as far as support and info

    Ok thanks! I'll check with them and see. So far I'm not getting any leaks that I can tell. This is all new to me and something that works this close I'm leary of taking apart. Haha mechanical don't bother me but electrical is another ball game :)

    What are good EDM machines as far as support and info

    I would love to do that trust me. Biggest problem in my area is that I'd say 985 of the machines in the area and Mits and the guys who run them aren't real familiar with Fanuc. I have checked and cleaned the cables/wires that are connected to the heads in the cutting area, not replaced them but...

    What are good EDM machines as far as support and info

    I can understand that one for sure. I'm not really expecting it to cut like a new one but I would like to see it just doing better than it is if possible. And it might be doing as much as it's going to, I don't have anything really to compare with. :)

    Question about Fanuc Robocut Alpha 0A wire edm water flow rate setting

    I have a 1993 model Robocut and The manual isn't real clear on this,or I can't see it. When I look up the EDM info for a certain thickness material and all it shows a water flow rate in there that sometimes goes up to like 15. Is this the numbers on the clear adjusters? The reason I ask is...

    fanuc A0-1 Still not cutting right

    I've thought about the flushing moving the wire around also and in the book with this machine and on the EDM settings the one for water can only be set to 3. I was wondering that if by running up around 5-6 on the gauge that it was making wire wobble. Thing with that is once I raise the tension...

    fanuc A0-1 Still not cutting right

    ok so here is what it is doing. When cutting straight on a 1/2 piece of hhs it will run with the numbers in the pictures. Not great but at least it is steady. I then went to my section which was .625 thick. Where it was cutting straight it was fine. It broke the wire in a radius ( .5 inch...

    fanuc A0-1 Still not cutting right

    I can push the pressure up to about 6 on the scale but it seemed like when I turned it down the volt meter wouldn't flutter as much, I may try bumping the tension up more also before starting the cut and see if that helps and will let me push more pressure

    fanuc A0-1 Still not cutting right

    [SIZE=2] This machine has been a learning experience for sure. I do have it somewhat running and it will cut but it's not cutting nearly as fast as it should. If I go by the technology data for what i'm cutting it breaks the wire everytime. For like 1/2 high speed steel I can cut at about 0.07...

    Taper settings on Fanuc Robotcut @-0A

    The G90 was left over as I was using G91 and took it out but forgot to take the G90 out that reset it. I will try it at the top before the G92 and see. There's no real thing I can find in the book about where it should go. I have tried this same program with G41 offset in it and a line for G40...

    Got it all up and running now. I think it was batteries and actually some dirty connections from sitting so long. Now I am trying to figure out how to run the thing. Simple stuff like manually setting a start position and calling a program from the directory and stuff. I have all the manuals but...
