No Y axis movement from G code
« on: July 28, 2013, 11:58:45 AM »

Hi All,
I hope you can help!

I don't seem to have any Y axis movement when i run a program to cut.
I can jog and everything works and even run a drilling program and everything works but when i run a cutting program the head will move to the correct starting poiint using x,y and z axis but then wont move the y axis when cutting?

Thanks in advance
Gav

Ok thanks Hood,

The drilling section of the 'test' file is fine but cutting out the square doesn't happen. The 'x' axis moves fine but the 'y' axis doesn't move at all. Although it shows moving on the dro.

Cheers,
Gav

Hello Hood,

Would it be possible for you to have a look at my program at all?

Thanks Gav

Hi Hood,

It runs fine to the start position and drills both the holes, then moves to start cutting the square and it will run down the x axis but not the y axis. Nothing happens on the y axis at all. Then moves back to the start position.

Thanks Gav

Ok, not sure how I can test for this as the DROs are moving so Mach is certainly saying its sending the pulses out. I think I have a PCI port here that I can install tonight  and I can then hopefully scope the motor pins to see if it is definitely outputting the signals.

I notice you are in Demo mode, obviously you removed the old licence but have you tried with the new licence?

Ok cant find my PP so not been able to test, however if the DROs are moving in Mach then that means the driver is sending the pulses to the port address assigned in Mach. The DROs are updated from the pulses the driver outputs so it has to be sending them.
