Fanuc Display – Relative Position
Fanuc Display (Relative Position) is used only by the operator.
You can reset Fanuc Display (Relative Position) just like you would on a manual machine with a DRO. So use it for setting or even measurements. One thing to remember is it will not retain it’s position when you turn the machine off. The control in the video is a Fanuc 18i on a big vertical lathe but all other Fanuc controls are similar.
Don’t forget the machine does not use this display so feel free to pre-set positions and origin axis.
It’s yours so enjoy it.
Also don’t worry when you origin axis or pre-set axis because the control will not allow you to interfere with other displays.
If you don’t have a Fanuc control you will find a similar thing on all CNC machines. It won’t have the same name but there will almost always be one display that you will be allowed to freely adjust and re-set.
CNC programming is a bit like driving a car. Once you know one CNC control you will soon find your way around another.
If you want to turn on the lights in your mates Ferrari (not that I have mates with Ferrari’s) you know that somewhere there will be a switch and it will definitely have lights.
Mazak, Heidenhain, Haas, Fadal, Siemens all have a similar function.
So it’s always worth applying a bit of logic when you are working on a new control, think that the control will almost definitely be capable of all the same things as the ones you know.
For example it will have a manual jog, it will have a hand-wheel, it will have some form of MDI, it will run in memory and it will have an edit mode. You just need to find them.
Let me know if you like the video and subscribe. If you don’t like it I think I’d rather not know, just talk about me behind my back.
