    Programming for a slotting head

    Is anyone here doing vertical slotting with CNC operation? If so, how are you programming it? Many Deckel and other slotting attachments have no clapper, so how do you manage the feed? Just feed very slow and let it rub on the upstroke? Or program short infeed moves with a dwell in between...

    Dialog 4 - G64 is turned off by G40

    I have my post set to output a G64 at every toolchange for blended contouring in large files. When the control gets to the end of a G41 or G42 section and gets to the G40 line, the G64 ends and it reverts to absolute stop which slows the control down considerably. 1) Is this normal? 2) can I...

    Least material to hold w/Talongrips?

    I thought this was discussed previously here but I can't find it. I'm making some parts that finish at .250" thick from 1018 CRS bar. I bought 5/16 thick material, thinking I could hold one side in talon grips, skim .010 off the top, profile mill another .250 down the side leaving .045 - .050...

    Using M1 in a Dialog 4 program

    After receiving my D4 machine, I backed up all the programs that were on the control. I've been reviewing them for hints the last few days and discovered M1s in a few of them. There's no mention of M1 in my manuals and I don't recall it being discussed here. Has anyone else used M1 on a D4? I...

    Remote use of CAM - how to do it?

    My long time mill programmer now has conflicts that drastically reduce the amount of time available here to program for me on site. How do I set things up to allow him to remotely access the machine on his desk here from his laptop at home? I understand this built into Windows, but I've never...

    Cutting brass vs aluminum questions

    Rookie questions from an old fart here. A customer has asked us to make 2 sample parts from brass, otherwise identical to the parts we make for him out of aluminum. The total amount of brass chips I've made in 50 years would be unlikely to fill a cigar box, about all I know is the warnings I've...

    Nickel vs copper shim material for crush fit

    Had an experienced rebuilder recommend I use pure nickel shim material to correct the fit of shell type plain bearings in a machine because that's how he does it. Another says brass or steel would be OK but he hasn't actually done it . Think of a situation similar in size to the main bearings...

    Code to stop spindle on Dialog 4? M05 equivalent

    I'm working on a code generator for my D4. I can't find an equivalent to M05 to stop the spindle in my manual, is there such a thing? S0 isn't good enough, that leaves the machine in neutral. Am I overlooking something obvious?
