    Milling Titanium

    Milling around a boss in Titanium. The outer groove is 1/2" wide x .600" deep is down inside a part starting at 4.125" dp. Trying to ramp down the groove with a 1/2" endmill but chewed up the corners plus deflected off making boss undersize. 2nd thought was to ramp a 3/8" endmill 1st and then...

    Parameter Setting For Tool Length Value

    I think I know everything but in case I don't - somewhere in my convoluted mind I am sure that when G43 and an H value are programmed, somewhere in the parameters it inputs the length value of the associated tool so calculations can be made for movements. Is this a correct - and would anyone no...

    Removing a broken carbide drill

    In what may be the dumbest question ever asked on this forum - has anyone "drilled" out a broken carbide drill other than with an EDM. (I'm not exactly sure why but we can't use a sinker or hole popper because it may 'alter' the molecular structure or some nonsense :confused:). The only success...

    Integrex Long Boring Bar tool change

    I have an E650H Integrex with the added long boring bar option. In the stocker it came with a 120mm bar and in position 2 I have a clam shell for a 80mm bar. I have no problem doing a tool change for the 120mm bar as it picks up the head from the tool changer but other than manually I can't...

    4 Jaw Chuck Logo

    yes I tried Albatross first because it looked obvious - no result. The machine is Italian - Tacchi deep hole drilling machine so I assume the chuck is European.

    New (to me ) Machine Day

    so heres where I'm at and I hope somebody had a similar problem cuz the Mazak apps guy is here pulling his hair out with me. I put together a simple little Mazatrol boring program. Ran good, measured bore tool is set correctly - all good so far. Tried to replicate path in EIA and no dice. As I...

    New (to me ) Machine Day

    Lol. yes even I know my limitations and have contacted Mazak to get some training. But in the interim may as well take a crack at it when I have some free time. There have been a few dog and pony shows around here with the focus being the "new big toy" so I get it running well enough for the...

    New (to me ) Machine Day

    Sorry for the lack of updates - I made a little video one day to show it was alive but I couldn't just drop into PM - needed to add to youtube or something and thats way above my skill level.

All the work is done in about a 40"...

    New (to me ) Machine Day

    It was a long day Friday uncrating the monster but it at least got inside the building. Going to need a little varsol and a scrub brush to pretty it up but from the outset it looks to be in good shape. Ballscrew and ways look good - to my eye anyway.

Tells the cop his story - cop says thats too bad - and issues him a ticket for not having the proper permit to drive big load on city streets. Cops...

    :angry:Found out late yesterday afternoon that my new toy is held up at the border because our crack government wouldn't approve the necessary permits to allow the large load in. So now myself and the machine movers are on hold. :icon_bs:
