I've just recently run into this issue where my torch retracts wire during and after clipping. The issue results in an insufficient length of wire for touchsensing. This happens only in play mode, not in teach mode. The program sends an output to inch out wire for a duration of 1 second before entering the cutter. There is no output to retract wire at any point in the program. There is a light that illuminates the inside of the torch body where the drive rolls are located. That light turns on whenever it feeds or retracts wire. I can visually see the light turning on, and the drive rolls spin backward.
After reviewing programming, Yaskawa Tech Support is leaning towards Fronius being the issue. I've unplugged most of the connections and inspected them for any shorts or abnormalities. None of which I could see being of concern. I've tried slowing down the speeds of the torch while in the clipping section. As well as increased and decreased timers for outputs. None of which made a difference in the actual issue of the wire retracting. I'm also in contact as well with Fronius tech support, and yet to have come up with a solution.
I'm relatively new at the programming side, and of basic knowledge of programming language. If anyone has suggestions, please break it down for a guy. Thanks
