    I am just wondering: Do you have a list of all your machines ? It seems you have a "new" one in every other post :eek:
    From what I have read you might have half of them (or more?) stashed away in...

    I have shaved about 4 seconds in total with shorter lead-ins for the turning and removing the imaginary toolchange between the milling rough and finish.
    I am sure there is more to save with more...

    I am running a turning job in annealed tool steel - 18mm diameter bar. The part is about 2" long and a little over 1/2" in diameter. Currently it takes 1 minute 56 seconds. I am looking to improve...

    Update on this issue: The updated software must have been made for / tested on a machine without a subspindle.
    That meant that the machine was set to tailstock spec under machine setup and that made...

    Maybe I'll try lower surface speed next time. Or it might be better to do it differently altogether? I could do it in two passes with an endmill that only has 16mm long flutes. I don't know if I...

    Just thought I'd update this:
    Maybe nobody else in the world is using the VPS programming on their Mori, but I found out the milling toolpaths it makes are not that great. When milling the pocket...

    4140 HT is widely available and pretty strong. If you have the size/height problems EPAIII mentions you could do a closed tool holder: A square broached hole the right size for the holder size you...

    Ahh !
    So that's how it's done. I was very happy when I got rid of the six instances of the whole pocket milling cycle but this is even better !
    Thank you again ! I learned a lot. Even though it is...

    Thank you again!
    That was a good plan, and I even got the sub program to work.
    Had problems to get the C-axis to index, but then I found an example and I had forgotten the . after the angle...

    An hour.. That's nothing. I think I spent at least 3 hours chasing my tail on some very small brass pieces I was trying to turn. Could not figure out why the OD was getting squashed and the tiny...

    Thank you to both of you ! :)
    13engines: You were spot on: I had modified only one of the pockets in the drawing, and while picking coordinates I used a different pocket with radius R=3,1mm.

    What about some tool-steel for hot working conditions ? Like Uddeholm Orvar for example.

    What is the difference between those fans and the ones used in a computer ? The hub looks much bigger. I suppose higher quality bearings, but anything else ?

    The expanded memory is just a CF card if I remember correctly, but it does not work until you activate it in the control, and you probably need to pay mazak for that. Even with the expanded memory...

    When I'm running steel it is mostly 4140HT hot rolled too. I'm wondering what sort of surface speed and inserts you are using ? At the moment I am running Iscar IC908 grade in CNMG and DCMT for OD...

    I have an old program that worked before the update (with milling on the SUB-spindle). It has the exact same start as the program that won't run now, but I will try it to make sure it doesn't run.
