    QT250MY (Smooth) - Crashing when programming (M744AtTop)

    Hi All, Our QT250MY is crashing when we are programming a part, it seems to be graphics related. I wondered if anyone had seen similar issues? It is quite a complex program and it only seems to crash when the software tries to load the image/model of what you are programming. Thanks.

    VCS430A (SMART) - "218 Conveyor Thermal" trip won't clear - No breakers tripped.

    Update - One of the screws had become jammed with an object I didn't see so as soon as the machine fired up and tried to drive the screw it tripped instantly. What is strange is that the breaker wasn't tripping yet I was still seeing the alarm...

    VCS430A (SMART) - "218 Conveyor Thermal" trip won't clear - No breakers tripped.

    VCS430A (SMART) - "218 Conveyor Thermal" trip won't clear - No breakers tripped. Hi All, We have a VCS430A and I had a thermal trip a couple of days ago, usually this only happens if the conveyor jams and trips the breaker. The usual breaker wasn't tripped in this situation and the conveyor is...

    640T Buttons not working - soft keys. (QT250)

    That is interesting, this machine does have a similar log in on start up. We bought the machine second hand and we believed it had previously been connected to a larger network. The username and password have always been there and all you do is click on "OK" to log in, this process hasn't...

    Afternoon, We have a Nexus QT250 with the 640T control. We are having an issue where the soft buttons along the bottom of the screen stop working, ie the ones which allow you to enter program / program edit etc. The only one that does anything is the far right ">" button and the button for...

    Afternoon All, I have a large billet of F55 to machine (320mm dia), I am looking for some advice on how best to go about this.

    NEXUS QT250 - MAZATROL 640T CONTROL - Freezing on start up???

    Hi All, Our machine above has just started to freeze on start up when the control tries to load, it freezes on with the image of the 640T on the screen (ie the screen is not blank so its not a screen issue). Has anyone experience anything similar to this and if so did you find the cause? Thanks.

    Machining 25Cr Super Dulplex (F55) forgings advice...?

    Thank you to all that have replied, that is a great help. The approach angles and the S&F's will give us a good starting point. The material being removed is pretty balanced, and the components are heavy walled once finished so I am hoping for not too much movement. The machines will be...

    Default I used to model everything on a program called Part Modeler which was part of the Edgecam suit we have, part modeler is now un supported by Edgecam as they have replaced this with Designer. Rather than having to go on a course to learn the new Designer software, I thought I would use...

    Machining 25Cr Super Dulplex (F55) forgings advice...?

    Hi Macds, Thank you for your reply, I have only been given limited amounts of information on the castings but I believe they are stress relieved. The sizes I stated are pretty rough, not really exact dimensions. We machine a lot of 316 so that is good to know, although I imagine the SFM will...

    Specialist CAM software vs Fusion 360...

    I did not claim to be an expert in both Fusion360 and also Edgecam, but after spending 10's of thousands of pounds on Edgecam and knowing that Fusion360 is much cheaper I wondered why anyone would purchase these expensive software packages if Fusion can achieve the same results. I figured I must...
