    Ok, that is pretty damn cool.

    What happens to the rest of the material that's in the vise jaws? Is that spin backwards to eject it? Or is it totally milled out once the grippers grab hold of the...

    I'd run this on my horizontal. Strips about 22" long and make 12 parts per strip, per side of tombstone. Not much in the way to setup, I'd use orange or 5thaxis vises which are already setup for this...

    You do, it is set in #556 and #557

    Unfortunately Haas WIPS program 9995 is hard-coded with that 10mm movement for that probe routine.

    If you're just picking up offsets to do the initial part...

    My guess is it looks to me like the small probe tip is causing the issue. In the Haas wips program 9995 it looks like the first move to the corner moves 3x the probe radius #556, but when moving to...

    Yeah that video came at a great time. Maybe it will open his blind eyes?

    So ridiculous. Even the most basic of parts you can have 10s, 100s or 1000s of parameters, settings, combinations to setup...

    On my EC400 I have a pallet pool, so in that case if a tool is broken I can just reject the whole pallet or skip to the next part on that tombstone/fixture/whatever.

    I'm running a series of sub...

    I use a 330mm lang on my EC400. Works good.


    For those using fans on your verticals with sidemounts, I'd be careful not to rev them so high as to get chips up there.

    On my VF11/50, we don't...

    I'm using ATM pretty heavily on the production job on my new EC-400 right now. Program is 10 "tools", 2 of which are drill/tap. Running 4 different size threads on this one. Every tool has at least 1...

    Care to post the actual reasons it's so bad? "they did not like it" doesn't help much
  12. Unfortunately for you, it is a poorly written...

    Unfortunately for you, it is a poorly written example. Program 9995 calls 9833 at the end to turn off the probe. The following G65 calls a protected move, 9810, which requires the probe to be on to...

    Weird concept.

    Seems like everything this could do, the EC400 would do better. Unless you don't do well with gravity?


    But why not? They already have all the parts. Just slap a VF2 headstock...

    Interesting app.

    FYI doing that you'll have to change your post a little bit (or edit after the fact) and you're kind of limited on what you can do, since this would be basically using a B-value...

    The sliding jaw is also not exactly 'fixed' in the X direction, or free from twisting some extent. Perhaps an indicator on the side could shed some more light?

    Yep, you should definitely set up the machine that way. Just use a tape measure to measure center points and fudge tool lengths until the part comes out right.

    Wrap is the wrong feature. It gives "sloped" walls since it is projecting towards the center.

    Use a swept cut if you want perpendicular walls.
