    Regarding live-tooled lathes and lathes with a B-axis milling head:
    The prices quoted on live tools here seems quite high. I got my live tool from MT Marchetti and a 10.000 rpm axial holder with...

    I don't know what size the 4-axis work is but some of it might go in a lathe (with Y and sub) if it's small...

    What's the reason you choose a lathe like that and not a fully enclosed one with a turret ?

    If you're a job shop programming lots of one-offs at the machine I think I would consider a Mazak instead. The programming is faster and you can get spare parts for mazaks back to the 80s.

    If your poly-wheeled rollers are undersized or at the weight limit they roll very poorly. You will always have the machine sitting for a few minutes or more no matter what you do, so buy some skates...

    Did you get the software/control updated recently ? If so: There are serious bugs in the next to last software. So much that it was retracted. The last one is better, barely.

    Forget about the double indexing, just get the Quad/double holders. Much better. The drawback off course is that you'll into clearance problems much faster. One thing I would do is figure out the...

    Nice machine, but I am more jealous of the weather. About 0deg C here and snowing, with about 1.5feet on the ground.

    Get the long bed: It gets's terribly tight in sub-spindle machines. And if you have boring bars or axial live tools on both sides of a holder and then parts in both spindles... :crazy:

    Here is how I plan on doing this. It is off course a rough sketch. The only electrical part missing is the pressure control valve and it's wiring (I think). Feel free to criticize and suggest...

    Got the latest version of Celos now. The only major change that I noticed multi-tool setup (so you can have 8 tools in the same turret station. They also made the text fonts larger in most windows...

    I get by without 1000psi, but I have some work that (hopefully) would go much more smoothly with lots of coolant pressure to break the chips.

    One hour tool-life and 20-40 parts sounds like heaven. Now and then I get a threading job in 316L stainless. One insert edge lasts one part. That is with Iscar inserts. I ran Sandvik too but then the...
  20. High pressure coolant system build - Questions.

    I'm going to build a high pressure coolant system for a lathe as the pump that came with it only delivers 5-7bar.
    Anyway: I am going to run a Knoll KTS 25-60 pump with a 5.5KW motor which should...

    There is some sort of residual material function. It is the "Auto Area" I think it was called. They will install the new Celos in week 50 for me, so we will see what that does.

    Great work on that QT !
    Do you have a picture of the data plate on the Walrus pump ?
    I have been looking for a bigger pump for my lathe too.
    How much pressure are you getting from it ?

    That was what I was thinking about. Although there is a holder between the stick and the turret.
    Anyway; it seems that the Capto is more than stiff enough.
