Program Size Error

We run lots of larger parts and it is very common for our programs to be larger than the memory on the controller.  Our post are setup to break the programs up on demand but when overlooked causes down machine time especially when detected at night shift when there either forced to wait till morning or hand edit.  Having a error when the program is too large for memory for the machine would be great. If there is already a way to do that would love the info on how to do so.

Re: Program Size Error

We could maybe add something that checks the file size in kb and give an error if thats exceeded.

Out of interest whats the max size of nc file you give to your machine?

Re: Program Size Error

We have about 40 machines currently and the memory is different on most of them.  Some of the older Fanuc's will only hold 45k

Re: Program Size Error

Someway to report a error if the file size is above a certain size would be fantastic.

Re: Program Size Error

Most controllers have the ability to execute NC code from hard-disk rather than from memory.
If you would use a -Main program calling Sub's- program structure, you would only need to load the main program to the NC memory.
In the past on old fanuc, we used the Data-Server function to store all subprograms and have only the main program in memory, calling up the sub's using the M198 Pxxxx command.
