Jim Retired and sold the business years ago last I heard.  I think a fellow named Ray bought him out. I think the business is Texas Micro.

They may know how to contact JIM.

I could tell you the story about the renishaw and the dent in the table and the smashed probe and the $1800 repair bill but then I would start crying again so I won't bring it up again.

Been there, have the broken parts.

I would suggest a control retrofit from Amada to update the machine.

Well Actually you can control the Pullback from the Gcode side. You will HaVE to create an Mcode. I use M120

THen apply the Pullback as a P (parameter). The Mcode looks like this:

PullBack = Param1
'MsgBox"" & Pullback
SetOemDro(91,Pullback)
End
     
You would use it BEFORE the G73 call and the Gcode call would be like this:

M99
M120 P.014    ( THis sets the G73 pullback level)
G73 Z-.570 R.490 Q.007 F1
G80

IN both cases I used a Step to analog convertor so that I had 0-+10v to work with. Then you simply wire it direct to the VFD for speed control then you also wire a signal to run CW or CCW.

It does not get any more dependable or simple to hook up.

HIYA Roger, With probing routines running close to 1 million hits the CB write adds HOURS to the routine by the time I am done. EVEN with my newest creepy crawler routine it does slow the process down compared to useing the Direct file write of the M40/41. BUT be cause Mach3 does not error it currupts the actual data with end of motion writes. So for now the creepy crawler is limited to the speed of the CB write. The actual probing motion CAN be very fast IF you are brave(;-). The probing actualy runs in straight Gcode (not a macro call) and so far is stone cold dependable. ONLY the file Write is done in CB.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

IF you are trying to compensate for missed steps you are fighting a loosing battle. Fix the machine.

I have used both of the mentioned above BUT I ran them as analog input. NO modbus or serial to fool with.

Here is how I would do it.

The G98 sets the end of function  retract level, G98 sets it to go back to the initial level (Z0)
Z-0.570 sets the depth to drill
R-0.490 sets the start point of the function and the retract level
Q0.007 sets the peck depth

The G73 pull back value must be set manually via the config section BEFORE you start the cycle.

From the X0Y0Z0 point it will rapid down to the R level and start the peck and retract cycle. It will peck .007" and retract .014" , then rapid back down to just shy of the peck depth and then peck down to the next peck level then retract. It continues this all the way down to final depth. The final peck if less than the peck depth will adhere to the final depth and stop short if needed. At eh end of function then it retracts back to the initial level Z0.000. IF you do not want it to retract back to the intial leval and just stay at teh R level then use G99 .

Sample code:

G0 X0 Y0 Z0
G98                                    
G73 Z-.57 R-.490  Q.007 F1   (set G73 pullback to .014")
G80
M30
