Controlling Mach3 With Robot
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:18:07 AM »
My Company recently purchased a Bench top mill to "degate" molded parts the software and degating station all tested out and runs great in the Mill. my question is does anyone know how to tie in a Sepro Robot to tell my PC (Mill) cycle start and for the robot to know that when Program hits M30 that the degating station is ready for the next set of parts to degate??? any help would be greatly appreciated thanks - dcw@druckerco

Not sure of the exact procedure you are wanting but making a custom M code up to set  an output from Mach and then wait for an Input from the Robot to say it is done would seem to be what you want.

I have discovered that it is thru a dos command that it can be achieved thanks for the input! -dcw
