A Turret indexing problem

Postby mcR » Tue Jun 30, 2015 12:08 am

I have a 21-T control. Whenever the turret tries indexing it rotates for a while and then tries to seat. It is supposed to rotate 30 degrees per tool but it does not. The encoder connected to the turret shaft seams alright though. Am also able to rotate the turret by hand setting bit 2 of K2 . It seems to be in control. Now it's like the machine forgot it needs to rotate 30 degrees. Are there any parameters for storing information on the turret or encoders?

Yes.. the parameters you need to help solve your problem are there. I can't seem to exactly remember the name but for the moment you could continue setting by hand since this has been working for you.

Yes, parameters for storing information on the turret do exist but you will need to have knowledge in programming to do this.

Programming could be the solution here but that doesn't mean it has to be the only one. Try replacing the shaft and see how that goes. I suspect that the source of the problem.
