    I didn’t meet Floyd but I saw someone selling their stuff today. That’s exactly what I’m looking for, it just doesn’t come standard for a .300 ID.

    We use servo collets. It may still be a spring, but pressure is a lot more adjustable.

    Having more trouble than I thought, but I’ve found a few possibles at a trade show.

    Citizen L20’s, several different generations. Mixed bag of barfeeders.

    I’m not sure the writing is on the wall per-say; it’s integral to both Fusiom360 and Inventor, just depends on if they want to kill the Solidworks integration. I think a huge amount of subscriptions...

    Yes. Main side does ID work, rough turn, and back end features, sub side does front end flats, blind hole, finish turn, and o-rings. Maybe… honestly having a tough time conceptualizing it myself, as...
  6. ID workholding for small, long bore in sub side of Swiss turn center

    That title was a mouthful…

    We make copper parts with an ID feature. Currently, ID feature is made on subside in collet, which has its… hiccups. But we do stupid high volume, and it works.

    Is...

    It kinda sounds like you’re in a middle ground of wanting web designers to tailor to our-of-date browsers but at the same time blocking out-of-date websites.

    I’m feeling the Shopify route. Easy...

    That’s… even better. $30 a month? I mean… consumable management sounds cool and all, but it sounds like website sale setup is the hard part.

    As for more details: plasma cutting with drill/tap center afterwards. Paint booth, marking machine, then an assembly and packing bench. Some made to order stuff with a bit...

    “I make stuff and sell it” software

    Hello!

    Most of my career has been very far separated from the customer: I’m a floor guy through and through. I’ve been blessed to not need to do any retail craziness like making a website. A...

    You’re not kidding. I have a story, but out of respect for the salesman (and in case they see my post) I’ll just say you wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve already interacted with Keyence.

    That’s pretty much the fixture they came up with, but I’m really doubting our GRR results lately. It’s a fairly loose fixture, which just comes down to their design, but even perfectly rigid, the...

    In-line laser inspection

    Hello!

    I heard a myth… and I’m wondering if it’s true.

    Someone said there’s a laser system out there that can reliably measure a part inside a machine, through coolant. So, in my case, it...

    I did end up getting a few with the bellows so it’ll pull it into whatever it’s locating to. This one is fairly restrictive. Might work well on the end of a robot or something though.

    Well, the little rubber vacuum cup works. I’m not sure how reliable it would be on a fixture, but it’s nice to know it functions.

    The two flats on either end represent unclocked features, though I clocked them here because it was easier to sketch quickly.

    Not quite. We’ve got a few ways we currently hold the parts; if you want to measure the front, you use a datum simulator on the back. If you want to measure the back, you use a v-block on the front....

    Part fixture: Vacuum on a diameter

    To your point, 3# isn’t enough, but keep in mind it’s just going in a CMM after machining is 100% complete.


    Now that I’m rereading my original post, I’m realizing I didn’t actually say this was...

    Part fixture: Vacuum on a diameter

    Hello!

    We do lots of round parts of different shapes and sizes, but they all tend to have a similar .500 +/-.001 OD in one way or another. We've got a few variations on fixtures, but there's...

    Probably way past Walter, but my .0002$; we’ve had terrible experiences with Titex drills. They don’t last as long, don’t look good in cap studies, and cost more than our normal.
