    We have this already with the crowned bearing, except it's a single score in the centre.

    Score isn't really the right word as it's not a depression - but it leaves a mark. No biggie as it gets...

    That's due to the "rolling shutter" capture method.

    About the only artifact that might be encountered in this kind of scene from that would be some horizontal shearing, but nothing here is really...

    I admittedly don't have much experience with HSK.

    I do have a lot of experience with 50 taper, and I do have a lot of experience with capto, and I do have a lot of experience with heavy machining....

    Image stabilization as you describe it is how youtube did it years ago, it was absolutely horrible - motion sickness inducing, and caused terrible image distortion.

    Sorry, you posted this while I was typing out the above post.

    Titanium could be a possibility from the apparent hardness. It's not aluminium. Also the part is pretty big and heavy to suspend from...

    Sandvik published a study years ago where they tested the load deflection rates of various spindle interfaces. The purpose was obviously to show how wonderful capto was, but the difference between...

    Kind of hard to gauge the material of the stud tbh from what little of it is exposed, I did a couple of scratch tests on it and it seems pretty soft, but not aluminium soft. Mild steel of some...
  8. Anodisers broke a stud in a high value part...

    They screwed in a stud in order to suspend it in the tank. One of six parts, value is ~£6k each, the other five are fine, unplated in the one same hole so they clearly used the same method on all...
  9. Roller steady - bearing type / surface geometry

    We have a big steady that uses INA NUTR3580-A track roller bearings.

    These have a crowned (extremely slight, hard to tell it's not cylindrical even with a straight edge) outer surface, rather than...

    Thanks for the tip - I have several tools in my arsenal to do a diff compare, but like you said it's an extra step that should not be, and never has been before, necessary.

    This is the kind of...

    No this was on one of our Hurcos, although we do use the pcmcia cards on the Fanucs as well.

    No fault of the machine, it accurately read what was on the pen drive.

    This is interesting.

    In my world, tolerance stacking is a term used to quantify the limits of uncertainty, i.e. it's usually discussed before a part is made, not after. Usually in the context of...

    Serial port transfers are separate from the networking stack on windows, so the firewall has nothing to do with it.

    We currently have a layout similar to 1, with lathes in line end to end. Seemed like a reasonable idea at the time for crane access and operator visibility etc.

    It's a really bad setup. Can't run...

    I disagree.

    Actually, the workstation I'm typing this on right now is a Z800 with dual X5667 3.1Ghz xeons.

    It's generally fine for cad, but it's really really showing it's age for cam. My Ryzen...

    I agree with most of the statements on that page, but I will add the following:

    They recommend i7/i9 over xeon - yes, but doing so precludes the use of ECC memory. As I stated above, I've found...

    So, this is all kind of debateable.

    An i7 is just an i5 with SMT, otherwise they are identical, and SMT is of pretty negligible value to cad/cam work where real, sustained parallelisation is...
