Biesse Rover 321R6/4
Hi all, My boss owns a Biesse Rover 321R 1997 model. We are a small Laminated benchtop business. It has come I assume with the original op system. I have had no professional training and just been operating and fudging a few programs to do different things.
Does your machine use Biesse works? If it does I can help but I'm not sure when they started using it.
1) Several things here in order to make that work.
2) not sure what you mean here. if you are looking for the program to create a mirror program on the right as the left, the machine does that automatically just by inserting the part into the right zone..ie a left end panel becomes a right end panel in the other zone.. if you are referring to copy and pasting..I would suggest you use wordpad and when saved go back and remove the extension. The program will then open the file. I can send you an abbriveated programing manual, but would also suggest contacting Mark Tomlin at www.cnccustomservices.com for onsite training, both in parametric and .iso import into the machine.
Hope it helps
Hi Jason, thanks for your reply. No it doesn't, It didn't come with a manual and it was missing the english version on the machine,the Biesse Tech gave us a txt file "Programming CNC 18.104.22.168, though I was able to download a manual which has the same control panel Software Users Manual, Software XNC 1.2 1996 . Attached is the boot up screen

I would suggest looking at enroute software over bob cad. They have been really good when I have had questions. They are releasing V6 and getting rid of the hardware keys. Also their import DXF is really easy to use.
The 321 can be programmed @ the machine if you don't have office software.
The parametric for Y is LPY/2 and the for X is LPX/2 or LPY or X +/- etc.
The machine is a 4 zone machine and the the zones are mirror images of each other and it is designed for multiple uses. We got the most out of it for our needs running cabinet ends, deks and tops in a pendulum mode running one while one was being drilled and routed off and the other was being loaded
I do not run ours any longer, but when I did I programmed regular ends and parts off the bottom and front. Then copied and pasted.
I doubt programming at the machine is a very desirable way to go unless your work is simple and repetitive. I also doubt there are many post-processors besides CADCode that will support the Biesse XNC control since it's fairly old at this point. Not sure how you work and get data to the CNC but if you're interested, I'd be happy to send you more info about CADCode.
