    Milltronics ML15 lathe Servo Drive Problem

    I have a Milltronics ML15 lathe with a bad servo board. I purchased a set of 3 boards from a Milltronics mill that have the same number (GA370-3 370-3001 (C). The original X axis card in the machine still works and the machine will home the X axis. If I try the new cards on the X axis it will...

    Two new forums added to PM... Fadal and Hurco, Milltronics

    In process of moving relevant threads from here to the new forums but it's a tedious process moving one at a time. Resisting a mass move as often enough a keyword is in a post not really relevant to Fadal, Hurco or Milltronics specifically. Meanwhile feel free to post away. :typing:

    Tool Eject on Milltronics Partner 1 not working

    VMC vs CNC Knee Mills

    Anyone with experience on a Milltronics RW15? Found one locally for $16k (2006) 40x20x20 10hp, pretty clean looking. I can't find much info on these older Milltronics units. Are parts easy to find for these?

    Looking to move into an industrial machine, and looking for the right machine for the job. Seeking people smarter than I to help guide me.

    I like Milltronics machines. They have a very user friendly conversational control and some decent high speed machining. I like their IL machines for the VMCs as the motors are mounted directly to the spindle and they aren't belt driven.

    Who else uses or even knows about the quick to use ‘Automatic Chamfer’ feature on Milltronics Lathes?

    A couple years ago at my first CNC Machining job which happened to be a production programmer role; I was thrown onto a Milltronics Lathe (ML-20 Circa 1999), and shown the ‘automatic chamfer’ feature which I used to get around to modify and/or hatch out quick simple programs to face, spot drill...

    small dia drill bit with replaceable tips

    ...i would get more comments about different brands of prarbolic flute drills, i may try a different brand or just keep going the way im doing it, the lathe is drilling these holes fine, im always thinking of ways to do drilling and other operations faster and better on my milltronics cnc lathe.

    Lathe program eliminating small fillet

    I have 3 Fanuc's, and one Mits with a turret in the front (some also have another turret in the back as well) and they all program as if they were rear turrets. If Milltronics botched this up, that's just another reason to avoid. -------------------- Think Snow Eh! Ox

    Wanting to get into CNC and exploring options.

    ...is limited to mostly hobbyists with deep pockets. There are a ton of other makes that'd fit the bill used: Brother, Fanuc Robodrill, Southwest Industries, Bridgeport, Milltronics, etc.. Plenty of decent machines go for $5-13k. Just make sure to budget for rigging, transport and tooling as well.
