    Mikron VCP600 with Heidenhain TNC530 PT100 thermistors.

    I know for a fact the machine is equipped with thermistors. I have had the file with W486-W490 open while milling, and can see the values changing. Also, if I press MOD key and enter code 4261, it will write the values where the feed and spindle overwrite bars are normally shown. After being in...

    Mikron VCP600 with Heidenhain TNC530 PT100 thermistors.

    Thank you for your reply. I have read this section of the manual already, and have also been in dialog with Heidenhain. With no luck. Since its a 20 year old machine, they dont really want to touch it. They said it seems more like a mechanical problem, which could be true since the Y-axis...

    Mikron VCP600 with Heidenhain TNC530 PT100 thermistors.

    Hi, and thanks for your reply. The Y-axis ballscrew was changed before I started the job, because of a crash. So I honestly dont know. But what I'm told is that it did not behave like this before. I will check to be sure tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure I dont have a folder in the PLC: called...

    Mikron VCP600 with Heidenhain TNC530 PT100 thermistors.

    At my workplace we have an old (2003) Mikron VCP600, which has a Heidenhain TNC530 control. I have a problem with the Y-axis expanding when milling. I am sure this is due to heat since the higher the feed, the more it will move. I tried milling a part, noting the coordinates of the datum, and...

    Heidenhain TNC 640 .TAB file help

    Hi and thanks for your answer. The reason I didn't answer is because I fixed the problem, and forgot about this post. It's like you said, I did not have the correct number of rows in my table. I had no rows, so when I added one, it worked. But thanks anyways.

    Heidenhain TNC 640 .TAB file help

    Hi Heidenhain users. I'm using a machine with a Heidenhain TNC 640 control, where I'm trying to make a .TAB file which I can read and write Q parameters from. Actually I want to read/write QS parameters, but I get the error message "Table acces denied". I first thought writing QS parameters to...

    Heidenhain - Datum Table vs Preset Table

    Hi, thanks for responding. I figured out how to enable basic rotation as the machine is set up now. I think. I have a part ready to measure monday. I just made a small program which runs a basic rotation cycle, and then a cycle that measures XYZ. I can see when it moves from the first point in...

    Heidenhain Preset table turned off

    Hi I recently started a new job, and the CNC mill that I'm mostly gonna operate, is the same as one of the CNC mills from my old job, a Mikron VCP 600 with Heidenhain iTNC 530 controller. There are small differences though, I'll happily adjust, but the guy operating the machine before me...

    Heidenhain iTNC 530

    Hi! Just started at a new job, and they got a CNC milling machine that is similar to one of the mills I used at my old job. It's a Mikron VCP600, the one at my old job had a System 3R robot attached, and this one at my new job got an (old) Erowa robot. The JMS is running on Windows xp. Maybe...
