    Lazyman, are you adjusting the voltage in the Haas next-gen control itself?

    400 amps, so nice. The compressor is in the facility and it is running a 16 stage screen press (for the other tenant) so I will have to see how much psi/cfm he is actually using. I know it turns on...

    Not sure if you did the breaker test for this question but thank you very much for doing that. Good to know that it can run on so little amps (under lower load conditions). Right now we are going to...

    Why would you need the 10k for aluminum? Just asking because I am debating between 7.5k and 10k for processing speeds mainly with titanium and some aluminum/stainless. Does the 10k with aluminum just...

    Thanks Kustomizer, good detail. I asked D.D. this as well but have you seen any drawbacks with running your machine on single-phase 240V? We are looking at a 10k spindle that has a higher HP rating...

    How does that work? I have always assumed/read that these machines need to run off 3 Phase power. When you run them on single-phase are there any drawbacks or limitations?

    Wanted to add onto this after my conversation with Southern Phase Converters out of Texas. They said whatever the HP of your machine you need to double it on the phase converter. So if I am trying to...

    Thanks, that is great to hear. I was on their website but was a little deterred just based on pure looks of the site (so many images and it seems all over the place). Glad to hear they are working...

    Extremely useful info, we have no intentions of heavy loads currently, mainly plastic, aluminum and some titanium. Interesting on the duty cycle, syncs with the research I did yesterday but is said...

    Thank you Hoss, we have a huuuge air supply (high psi/cfm). Looking at a non SS machine so my specs will be a bit lower than yours. Really good to hear about the longevity of your setup. Thanks for...

    Thanks for the fast reply Hoss, do you recall if the 50 and 75hp phase converters are run off a 200 amp service? I feel like that is a major limiting factor for me.


    I also was speaking to North...

    Drew, what phase converter are you using with your VF3 on your 100 amp breaker, I am looking at a VF2 which is calling out 50A. American Rotary does not have a product that works but I have seen the...
