EMER STOP

Postby Marius Gouws » Mon, May 13 2013, 3:32AM

Good Morning
The machine is starting to do this more often everyday now, well its now to a stage where its doing it every time. When I ran a program, and the tool in the program is the same that is in the router head the following happen. You hear a "clack" sound at the router head, it goes into "EMER STOP" and the program code always stuck on the following macro and program code block:
Macro: MACM241.thm
Block: IF[VAL(FROMPLCMESS3$) = 1234567] THEN G04F.4 (no change-slow macro down)
I have to nc reset, block step- to home the machine, then load another program that have a different tool, then block stop that program after it picked up the other tool, go to end of program(before theG990) line, run it from again, so It goes back,with that tool , then ran my original program again .
Any help?
Thank in advance
Marius

Make sure that you do not have a M241 in the program you are running. This is a macro that the controller adds into the program during a tool change and then removes after the change is done. If you Estop the machine during a tool change, the controller does not remove it from the program and it will stop everytime inside the macro like you described.

I had the same problem last year. Try to clean the retention knob on the tool holder or change to a different tool holder.

After talking to Marius, it turned out that his draw bar sensors needed adjustment.
