Fanuc F16L Laser post processer

Post by TrellBuilt »

I recently purchased an older Fanuc laser for cutting metal plates. Although Fanuc offers software for it, the price tag is steep at $10,000, and I already have Aspire 9.5. I've been searching for a compatible post processor without any success. If anyone has access to this processor, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could share it with me.

Fortunately, I managed to get a file prepared by APC100 for testing the laser, and it performed great. Below is the file. I'm hoping someone might assist in crafting a post-processor or direct me to one that might work with my setup.

From the g-code provided, it's evident that the laser activation command is M103, while M104 is used for deactivation. The laser machine automatically manages all feed and power settings. I am not sure what G00G40 does but looks to be after every laser deactivation.

Thanks for your time.

Cutter Compensation Cancellation (G40)
Function G40 is used to cancel cutter radius compensation initiated by G41 or G42. It should be programmed after the cut using the compensation is completed by moving away from the finished part in a linear (G01) or rapid traverse (G00) move by at least the radius of the tool.
