Pallet Check for Mori Seike Horizontals
by Brian Cox of Ellison Machinery
Im an applications engineer for a Mori distributor in the Northwest. I
have written a macro for a pallet check on the Moris. Mori is kind enough
to write the current pallet in the machine as a value in variable #147. I take
advantage of this to make pallet checks at the beginning of a program to
prevent programs from running on the wrong pallet. We assign these as
M codes M71 for pallet A check and M72 for pallet
B check. If the correct pallet is not in the machine an alarm will
O9004(PALLET CHECK A)
#3000=1 (NOT PALLET A)
O9005(PALLET CHECK B)
#3000=1 (NOT PALLET B)
Load the programs listed above and make parameters 6074=71 and 6075=72 and
you should be good to go.
Editor's note: Parameters vary from one Fanuc control to another. Look up
the user defined M code parameters related to programs O9004 and O9005 (shown
as 6074 and 6075 above) to confirm. They will be listed in the custom macro
section of your Fanuc control manual.
