    Fusion + Haas VF with trunnion issue

    I figured it out.... Complete brain fart on my part. When I went to copy the info from the macro variable page to the machine settings I did it backwards and copied the old machine settings to the macro variable page. I didn't think about it it until I was talking to someone about how you...

    Fusion + Haas VF with trunnion issue

    Hi all, I'm kind of stuck. I'm using a Haas VF3YT with a TR160 trunnion with DWO/TCPC enabled. I probed the trunnion and copied the MRZP settings to the micro variables section. I have my machine setup in Fusion and best I can tell my axes all behave appropriately and I've had no issues...

    Help Troubleshooting Heat Pump

    What model is the outdoor unit? I assume it's a 2 stage unit? Is the indoor fan running at an appropriate speed during heat?

    Pulley / woodruff key question

    Hi all, I've got what may be a silly question, or, maybe it's important. :confused: I have a 3/4" steel shaft with a 3/16" woodruff key in it. I'm installing a cast iron 9" diameter V belt pulley on the shaft and the setscrew lands on the woodruff key. I've only used normal square keys...

    V belt questions

    While that's true, most only have them to protect the gear box. The impeller is usually unprotected, though some do have a shear pin there as well. But I still highly doubt that's why the choice of belts. From what I can tell so far, it's due to the small size of the pulleys, how close they are...

    V belt questions

    So you cannot use an A or AX belt for clutching? What happens if you do?

    V belt questions

    Hi all, I started working on what I thought was a simple project in my spare time and have been trying to find some answers to a problem. The project is a snowblower and the issue is getting more power through it's belts. The original setup uses a 2.75" pulley driving a 9" pulley through a 4L...

    Prototrak SMX programming

    Yep, Pretty much just set your tool table up and leave it alone. I believe every time you load a program it's going to say the reference height isn't set anymore. It only matters if you need to set a tool up or change one. You can just load the program, run it and ignore the "make sure your...

    Turning C10100 copper

    This is something we've worried about as well because we're considering getting a CNC lathe for this kind of work. Inserts still aren't here, so I'll be back later tonight hopefully.

    Thank you all for responding. I've got 3 more inserts coming today. Two from Iscar and one from Tungaloy. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

    Turning C10100 copper

    Sadly, we cannot change the material. It must be C10100. The insert we tried is an Iscar CNMG 05502807.

    Turning C10100 copper

    That's another issue. We're doing this on a manual lathe, no enclosure. 10HP engine lathe.

    Turning C10100 copper

    Hi all, I'm having a bit of an issue getting the chips to break turning down some C10100. I'm turning down a 7" diameter piece. Tried running 360 RPM, but dropped it to 180 because I kept getting a built up edge. Ended up with 180 RPM and up to 0.022 IPR. I started at 0.005 but when it...

    G84 tapping depth issues with floating head.

    No, but I am now.

    G84 tapping depth issues with floating head.

    Oh it's definitely a "dull tap". :D So to speak...... I'm form tapping copper. From your response, it sounds like it's not the best combination so maybe I should just be happy it's working? Size is 1/4-20.

    G84 tapping depth issues with floating head.

    Hi all, I'm having a bit of an issue getting my tap to run down to the correct depth using a floating head and G84. The machine tends to reverse before the tap hits the depth I want, often as much as .100" too high. This is a lot of fun when bottom tapping. I can get it to go where I want by...

    Looking for used machine : What to go for and what to avoid?

    Any thoughts on Mazak's controls? It concerns me that they're conversational being I'm using Fusion360 to generate G code. Will this limit what I can do similar to the way Prototrak does? Also, RS232................how big of a nightmare is that to interface with? I know I just need a PC...
