    We ran a 1/2-13 thread this morning, increasing x geometry wear offset by -0.003 per cycle. On the 9th cycle, we were at -0.024" offset and finally achieved a good thread.

    The X reading on the...

    Also, can you please tell me where you are setting your X wear offset of -.013"?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Any chance you can do a 1/2-13? We don't do any 1" and we don't have inserts to try your program and verify.

    On the 1/2-13 it says it would go to 0.416, but it is off...

    Hi pmack,

    Thanks for your comment; we are not looking for threading help. Just need to find someone else with the same machine to confirm what Haas is telling us. And it must be a TL-1 with NGC...

    I would love to know if you could run a basic 1/2-13 thread and test to see if it's even remotely close to fitting a 1/2" nut.

    Below is the G76 thread cycle we would use. It's created from the...

    Hi Ed, after fixing what? Per Side! Diameter!!

    Not sure what you're talking about.

    Try running the program I posted on your machine and tell me what happens!
  8. Haas TL-1 Next Gen Control users / owners PLEASE CONTACT ME!!!

    If you own or work with a Haas TL-1 with the next gen control, please let me know!!

    I have a question for you specific to this machine about threading. This machine is doing some very odd things...

    It doesn't matter what we measure. It's all off by 0.035" for a 1/2-13 thread. Turning anything on this machine is dead on. It's only threading.
  10. Minor Dia, Major Diameter - it doesn't matter. ...

    Minor Dia, Major Diameter - it doesn't matter. The machine is not going deep enough by roughly 0.035".
    Simply put, the machine is deciding on it's own to not go to 0.416 like it says it will.

    Everybody:

    Yes, we used proper tools for measuring the thread minor OD. We have several people do it. It's off by 0.035" (not deep enough).

    Yes, we are using the proper measurement tools, the...

    The code is extremely basic. For example, we just want a standard 1/2-13 thread. Below is what we would generate from the VPS screen. We could also write it from scratch. But here is an example. ...

    Yes, I can confirm we are writing the G Code Correctly.

    We have spent several hundred hours working on this. We have done G76, G92, etc. etc.

    We have had several paid Haas authorized...

    It's the same software but we were told that it does this ONLY on the TL-1. ARGHH!!!!

    If I could just find a phone number to call and escalate this at HAAS....

    The same people told us that on the TL-1 the tool nose radius is completely ignored!

    Yes, we tried this any way, and it made zero difference.
  16. By the way, do you have contact info for them? ...

    By the way, do you have contact info for them? I'd like to express my disgust with them directly. However, every number I call leads me to the authorized service folks which I already have out here.

    The authorized tech that was here contacted Haas applications while he was here. They told us that we had to keep tricking the depth on the threads until we got what we wanted.

    We were going to...
  18. Anyone else have a HAAS TL1 Next Gen Controller (threading issue)

    Hello,

    We have a fairly new Haas TL1 with the Next Gen Controller (<2 years old), and have spent what seems like half our lives trying to get standard threads to work. 1/2-13, etc.
