    Renishaw MP10 with OMM-R?

    So I fully admit I may be a total idiot here having jumped in without fully researching everything, but I am where I am. I had purchased a MP10 probe, along with the TS27R, MI12, and a MI8-4... and a...

    From all accounts it's easy to see that probe is one of the good ones to be sure! I release near everything I do as Open Source, and have managed to get some of my employers to also release lots of...

    OK will do. :) I figured I could after seeing photos of the real cable on various eBay listings, but figured it would be silly to assume something that potentially important without asking first if...

    Adding Renishaw OMM and MI-12 to VMC

    I'm adding a Renishaw OMM and MI-12 to my machine to be used with an MP-10 probe. Being the cheap bastard I am, I opted to find used units to install. I've got a possible issue tho. I didn't notice...

    Zahnrad, I've got it to line up! I printed a 1:1 DXF and after scaling up and down, I've got a perfect outline following the perimeter of the existing gear. You are the man. Thank you for your help...

    Also, yes. Most of the measurements are having to be turned into averages. I'm getting differing values all over the place with direct measurement. The existing gear seems to give me the most...

    I get that. I think if I had a DXF of what an dead nuts 5480-13 spline would look like, I could use that to match. I think that if it's in need of adjustment on the spline, and any adjustments I make...

    Not so simple. There are lots of different splines and spline profiles. I stated I knew what the ID and OD is. I have modeled a part that BASICALLY fits. I can bonk a 3D printed part on with a rubber...

    I've been tryingn to fight with Fusion360 to get it to try to spit out a DIN5480 1.5Mod, and so far, no luck. I found a PDF for the spec, and have been fumbling around as I try to get it to create...

    It's about 3 years old, so recent-ish I suppose. That seems like it's something relative. Some would consider something from 2000 still recent while others would consider anything older than 2 years...

    I'm likely going to have to send it out for wire EDM. I'm not making the shaft, but the gears to go on it. If I were making a single replacement shaft, that's certainly what I would do. I have to...

    The shaft is what I'm trying to get the profile for. I have the old drive gear and retainer, which I'm also trying to use for modeling. It's a slip fit, and is fairly tight. There is supposed to be...

    Everything else on it is metric. It's metric. The ID and OD measurements are metric. I have no experience with designing or drafting involute splines. I met with a mechanical engineer yesterday for...

    All the calculators and calculations I can find, are for determining which spline to use, size of the splines, power the splines can handle, et cetera. All of that presumes you are making a new...

    What I can figure out:
    Diameter min: 18.75mm
    Diameter max: 22mm
    Across 2 teeth: 8.45mm
    Across 3 teeth: 12.25mm
    Across 4 teeth: 15.45mm

    The teeth measurements are averages as it seems the...
  16. Help with identifying metric involute spline

    I have a shaft with an unknown metric spline, and need help with identifying what it is.

    Are you also on a Siemens 808D controller? I'm happy to share the info on the solution. What it looks like is going to happen in they are going to send me a refused PLC project with the door...

    I'm not sure where that relay goes. I SUSPECT it goes to the lubrication pump, but I'm not sure.

    The machine currently runs, it's missing the interlock which concerns me because I know it should...

    I intend to wire it up correctly. The photo was just what the STANDARD x200 pin 8 ended up being connected to. I'm positive it's NOT going to a door safety interlock, because there aren't any on any...

    Good point. That eliminates the possibility that just MAYBE the Q0.6 wire I found run to the relay in the electrical cabinet isn't going to be wired in just without a switch connected to it... so...

    The controller supports it. It just wasn't wired up. I can't tell if the PLC is already commissioned for it and I just need to "connect the wiring" to get the functionality enabled, or if they...

    Fine. You're right. I may as well just burn the machine to the ground. WTFF are you trying to accomplish here? I'm asking for help. Go lecture somebody else who isn't trying to fix their machine.
  23. Have you wired up an 808D yourself? Yes, there is...

    Have you wired up an 808D yourself? Yes, there is support for the built in safety interlock on the controller. It wasn't wired up. I'm looking at doing this because I want the safety interlock...

    The machine was a custom build and the Siemens 808D control is for custom / prototype machinery.

    Honestly tho, if y'all don't have experience with with Siemens controllers, then your comments...

    I recently purchased a VMC from a machine builder in China. Overall the machine is great. One problem tho is that they didn't install any door interlocks. Looking through the commissioning manual,...
