    Brother Speedio slow with A-Axis rotation

    With parameter changes you can program up to F1968 in inch mode. When doing a feed move with rotary axis this becomes degrees per minute, which is about 5.5 rpm. In metric mode you can program up to F50000.

    Brother Speedio xd1 real differences?

    Do you have Brother machines now? That could make a difference in the decision too as far as compatibility etc... S700Xd1 will have 28 Tools, Big Plus standard and updated casting (higher rigidity claimed). R650Xd1 and R450Xd1 have very different castings than X2. chips and coolant now exit out...

    speedio atc blocked

    I would probably remove some grippers and/or the sheetmetal behind the turret to see what is causing the jam. I believe you can hold RLSE key, hit reset and while holding release press magazine reverse or forward to move it

    Brother speedio variables

    Do you have a tool setter probe installed like a Blum Znano or equivalent? We use that for tool breakage detection as well as tool length setting. If you connect a sensor or switch to the Touch Sensor input on the IO board, you just need to command a M120 when the tool is in position to activate...

    Brother tc-s2a not homing z axis

    Yes. When you removed the Z axis motor you changed the position of the encoder relative to the ball screw. Follow the procedure in the manual regarding replacing the motor and adjusting the zero position. It is important to get the zero position correct as it affects the tool change action...

    For Sale: 2018 Brother TC-32Bn Quick Table CNC Machining Center

    Very similar. The 32B machines were the flagship from 2005 to 2018. They weigh 10,000 lbs. B00 control was great but less standard memory than C00 (10Mb vs 100Mb). Can be upgraded to 100Mb. No short cut buttons. Auto-lube instead of auto-grease. Only uses about one tank (a quart or two) of way...

    Brother Speedio Spindle choice?

    Yeah, .0002" or better with a decent set up. I've gotten them to practically Zero (nearly undetectable with a Mitutoyo tenths indicator) using an ER collet chuck. Was running a .010" end mill in tool steel for a crimping die. Couldn't tell it was doing anything until the cut was over and I could...

    Brother Speedio Spindle choice?

    I really like the 27K machines but there is a lot to be said for the all around goodness of the 16k machines. If it is your first brother machine, the 16k will be great. Can handle larger drills and taps than 27K. Will run 16k all day long. If you are frequently running very small tools (<...

    Brother S500X2 is about 60" wide and may fit under an 80" door with some relatively minor disassembly I believe.
