Hello we have an Heidenhain 530i. No one here has ever run it before is there away to see how much you are offsetting down with the handwheel can get it to offset just don't know how much it has gone down.
Asssuming it has the 410 handwheel unit (or something similar) attatched to it
The handwheel has a fast, medium and slow speed option on it, but theres no set value for distance moved vs how far you turned the wheel , but saying that, the handwheels have quite a fine pulse generator in them,
unlike the rather coarse fanuc ones, so that if you put the hand wheel in slow speed, and rotate the hand wheel slowly, the selected axis will move very slowly.. fine enough for me to use a electric edge finder and be able to set the machine within 0.0002"
Alternatively, you can put the machine in manual jog mode, set the distance to be moved to say 0.01mm , then for each press of the axis jog button, the axis machine will move 0.01mm (I do not like this mode and hardly ever use it)
If you need a manual for the control, just search the HighAndPain website under 'documentation' and you'll be able to d/l a 600 page PDF file containing all you need to know, and lots more you did'nt
PS heres a couple of spare commas to use ,,
To add to what Boris said, there are three parameters that set how fast the slow-medium-fast speeds are (usually MP7670.0-2 but I haven't checked a 530 control). If the slow is set really slow, there is no problem positioning to 0.001 mm (0.00004") if your machine is capable.
Thanks the handwheel is an Hr520 with the digital display. the problem is seeing how much we have offset with the handwheel.On the other controls we have it shows how much you have offset can the Hiedy do this. Also does the offset stay active say like on an Fida controllar.
Thanks again Mike
Are you talking about the feature where you say you want to offset a running program? I've never used that.
For normal uses, the position displays will move with the tool and the handwheel, and will show you position relative to the current working coordinate system - of which you can have an arbitrary number (as many as will fit on the hard disk basically.)
Yes while running an program I should of put that in there to0
Try M118 That should allow you to do what you want.
I'll take HH over any other system I used (never used FIDIA) any day.
Mod key then set your position display to M118
