Hello Everyone,
i am new here and this is my first post.
I am having trouble in sending generated g code from g puncher to amada turret using g sender.
I tried many times but it's not happening.
Do i need to set up some parameters in amada to receive it?
Can you tell me what could be the problem?
and it would be great if you can help me with the solution.

Issues with NC Studio and Wireless WHB 02 controller

Thu, 04/19/2018 - 07:59
I am new here, so if this is the wrong thread to post on I apologize.
Now, I have a Victor 1212 CNC router and it came bundled with a program "VIC Engraver Control System V 5.4.48" which is pretty much NC Studio (not sure why it has a different name).
A couple of weeks ago we bought the wireless controller WHB 02 to use it with the router but so far I have been unsuccesful in making it work.
I install the drivers and according to the instructions, the driver icon on the task bar will remain greyed out until I load NC Studio, at that point it will change the color to red.
But so far I have loaded NC Studio and it is still greyed out.
I am thinking now it might be an incompatibility issue with my "NC Studio" because the txt file that came with the drivers says that it supports "NC Studio version 8.214 and 5.453" but I am not sure which version is older.
Anyone had the same issue or know what might be the problem?
Also, if anyone know where I can get a newer version of NC Studio please do tell, I tried contacting weihong (the manufacturer of the PC card) and so far no answer.
Thank you

CNC Offload

Thu, 04/19/2018 - 04:00
After running a CNC for a couple of years, I can see the benefit of an offload conveyor setup (I don't need the onload feature). I've already talked to my machine company and they cannot retrofit. They said it would be too involved at this point and I don't really want to start over with a new machine as I really like how this one handles. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of a company that could help me do something like this to an existing machine? I would love to integrate vacuum as well but realize I would most likely still have to manually blow the spoil board between cycles.

Thanks in advance!

Hexalobular (Torx) Progarmming

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 21:50

Can anyone help me in making a program of torx (male) T8? what's the correct format?
I'm using a screw machine GT-26 Tornos. What happens to my program is the outcome
is not exactly its shape. Thanks a lot.

PS - we're not using a cam software here in our screw machine so I'm doing it manually

Could you send me the information as well . I have the same alarm on my Daewoo. Thanks. (

can someone help me for an SL25 -FANUC 16T controller

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 00:40
I am a cnc programmer and I have a problem with a FANUC 16T controller on a SL25 lathe, who don't have correct motion in circular interpolation .
I have controlled the servo parameters and are correct. Linear movements are correct and maintain the dimensions programmed in the cnc program. For circular movements, the axes have a motion according to the attached image, as if the center of the circle is not calculated correctly.
The company qualified my the program incorrectly, but after we did a test for the profile attached , we came to the conclusion that the machine does not correctly execute the circular interpolation.
If you have any suggestion regarding the circular motion error, and if is possible I fix that from the machine parameters, I'd be grateful to be able to fix the errors.

Thanks, Attached Images

Okuma MC3VA Z axis ballscrew

Sat, 04/07/2018 - 20:53
My Okuma MC3VA VMC with OSP500M-G operating system is experiencing clunky operation and often becomes stuck in the Z axis operation resulting in a "Dif Over" alarm. I'm looking for advice or instructions on adjusting or replacing the Z axis ballscrew assembly. Since I have been unable to obtain the proper manual, if anyone has instructions on this procedure that they could share with me it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

Machine works okay.
When I activate the vacuum, it does not lower the boundaries.
When I extinguish the vacuum pump, lower the bumper, start working.
Then there is no vacuum.
It would help me to be a pneumatic scheme to overthrow the pneumatic attachments.
Of course, every advice was welcome.

Mori Seiki SL 7 - zero return not working

Mon, 04/02/2018 - 15:36
I have a Mori Seiki SL 7 lathe with Fanuc 6T - B control. Referece for both axis is not working in zero return mode in selector swich by jogging using jog switch. Both axis are moving to end limit without catching reference point. But, in MDI mode, using code, zreo return is working ok for both axis. Can somebody help me to solve this problem? The machine was down for about one year because of spindle problem and now it is solved. During down time, the machine was made on every day and manual dry movements were done. All the parameter values remain same as original. Battery backup is ok. Now, the machine is working ok in auto mode after referencing in MDI mode. I want some help to solve referencing in zero return mode.Thanks.

Alert code when G43 is not active on Fanuc OI-MD Control

Thu, 03/29/2018 - 13:57
Is it possible to have an alert code and stop the machine if G43 and H code is not active when Z movement happens when running a program?
Running without G43 and the correct H code deviated a part, no tool length active.
This has happened several times when a operator starts in the wrong place in a program.

Anyone need any Amada help?

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 12:47
I have problems with a amada fbd 80 nc press brake whit NC-9EXII controller. The problem started when the lower beam began to rise, but when it reached the point of slowdown it did not rise, hence it returned to the origin and no longer raised the lower beam. After that the alarm 0F10 was set, it was deactivated and we made tests, the pedal if it works correctly and activates the input and output in PLC, also its respective relays that activate the solenoid of the main valve.
I would appreciate any help
