Another Matrix problem

#1 | Posted: 9 Apr 2008 20:26
Why can I not see where I am at on the position screen when I manually move a tool with the jog wheel? I have tried to MDI the tools different ways but the position screen never shows the tools position relative to the part zero.

My guess is because the offset used in the setup isn't active. I have the same issue. I usually go to a known point then use the arrow keys to cursor over to a position type in whatever value I want in the entry window and hit enter.

For example If I want to zero out a position register and use it like a DRO in manual I cursor over to the Z position enter 0 and hit write and the display zeros out.

I can't believe it took me 9 months to figure that out. But hey, I'm slow and never stumbled on it reading a manual.

In have an e650HII
I always make my G54 'Z' offset value the same as my WPC, then i go into MDI, type G54, cycle start. My display is then correct, relative to 'Z' zero of my component.
(I'm talking about the main chuck)

MDI -> G53.5 ... And you're on the mazatrol zero point.
