General Mach Discussion / Re: Running macro and testing them
« on: May 08, 2008, 02:48:29 PM »
hi jmpinder

The auto tool change is ticked. The macro is one that is working from Graham. I can not tick the ignore tool ghange the it will not do a tool change. If I call a tool it does change the tool number in the tool dro.The machine whenrunning it will produce abatch of part all withim 2 microns of the othe , it will save me some time if the tool changer is automatic and the I can carry on with work on my mill.

Hi All

I am running a m6 macro but it is not working or I can not see it working. I am not a vb man And know noting about programing in vb. Can you see the Macro running while mach is busy.

Hi to all

I have a emco compact p6 lathe all is working fine but now I need to get the turret working. It has a 8 station turret.Is it possible to compare your tool DRO to were your turret  is standing and then turn the turret until the feedback from your turret is the same as your DRO.I don`t know any thing about vb programing and Will need help.My signals back from the turret is as follows Tool 1 I1=1,I2=1,I3=1I4=0 ,TOOL 2 I1=1,I2=1,I3=0,I4=0 ECT can you guy`s help me with brains or vb to get this going.               Thanks  cjels

Hi All !

My name is Cobus if been repairing machine tools for the last 25 years. I live in JHB in South Africa. I never wanted to own a cnc machine But is in the process of trying to fit new controls to a lathe and mill.I do repair cnc machines and most of them
with Fanuc Controls.That Is were I learned Ladder logic.Mach Looks like A good package and at a fair price.Fanuc controls is to expensive and very expensive to maintain.I will ask for some help As vb scripting is new and i do  want to run the turret on the lathe and the tool changer on the mill. the first machine is the lathe with gecko stepper drives and a inverter for the spindle control.I did try Desk Cnc but was not Happy with it.Mach Has a lot of functions that seems to fit my way of doing stuff.

Hobby Wise I fly RC planes and use the equipment to make spares and motors for my hobby.

Enjoy your day
