Triac Machining Centre 078 alarm

Post by sfrance » Tue 10 Jan , 2012 11:48 am

Accidentally our Triac Fanuc Controlled om machining centre was turned off whilst in edit mode. The 09001 program macro was lost and when trying to run programs now an 078 alarm appears. Can anyone help with the reprogramming of the 09001 macro as we do not have a copy.

Do you have the machine serial number and original customer name/location ?
There may be a possibilty the macro program is inside an old customer folder.
We've had a look at the Triac data we kept on floppy disks but unfortunately none of them are readable now :(

Thanks for your reply. The machine is still at the original address and ther were two 9000 macros which were deleted. I think the installing engineer was named John Brown but I understand he is no longer working for the company.

After a lot of searching we've found them - Macro 9000 and 9001 - I think 9001 will be the one John Brown modified and added (and changed parameter 240 to 6 in order to use)
donations gratefully accepted toward the next Denford booze up :wink:

Success!!! Copied the files and uploaded to machine via Alphacam software. Reset the parameters 0010 and the PWE back to 0.

Many thanks for your efforts. :D
