Automatic Shuttle Exchange-Abe Blank

Automatic Shuttle Exchange-Abe Blank

(OP)
Is it possible to do automatic shuttle exchange after a program ends by using Dr Abe Blank..loading and unloading in nc generate anything there. After the head goes back g50 the shuttle exchange should occur. Is this possible

RE: Automatic Shuttle Exchange-Abe Blank

I don't know how to make the software do it but, G130 sends the machine home, M707 to change tables, M97 to repeat the same program.

It is possible to run a different program it's just tricky.

RE: Automatic Shuttle Exchange-Abe Blank

The person who instaled my amada lcg3015 said that i can choose to automaticaly exchange my work table before the program starts or after the program ends.
I never used that option but I attached a printscreen with what i think are the conditions from the NC Generate panel that activate that function.

RE: Automatic Shuttle Exchange-Abe Blank

For safety reasons we never have it shuttle automatically but all you have to do is hit the start button again and it will shuttle. After the G130 at the top of the program put in /M707 make sure to use a block skip so it will not read the shuttle on the first sheet. When the sheet starts cutting turn the block skip off so when the sheet is done and the start button is pressed the beds will shuttle. Now every time the start button is pressed the beds will shuttle automatically.

Hello Lightl.


YOu have to go into preference
->NCGenerate
Look for : Pallet Exchange Timing Of Shuttle Table.
This should have number 2 after so it processes the code after the program.
Also Loading/Unloading device should be enabled.
And you need to check so that on Machine Set -> Loading/Unloading Device. This have to have the right Tandem Device Type.
If not it will give the wrong code to your machine.
(also the key LINE CONTROL needs to be turned on)

Lightl did you get it fixed?
