    If you're trying to do this on the cheap (and it sounds like you are) I would consider not monitoring every single tank at the machines, but rather constantly circulate all of the coolant from all of...
  2. Aftermarket Servo Door Manufacturers

    hey Gang - does anyone have any recommendations for manufacturers of kits to convert/add a servo door to existing CNC machines?

    Yes, I can obviously design and build custom ones, but why reinvent...

    If you work for a Fanuc ASI, I can point you towards some on their CrC website.

    What type of training are you looking for? If you send me a message, I might be able to get you going the right...

    So I understand why it's happening in this case (flight critical hardware especially, and I don't disagree with the punishment he's likely to get) but inspectors "falsifying" reports is obviously a...

    I'd be curious to see their retention system, because otherwise all the Finn Power one is, is a fancied up (and obviously more well done) version of the same thing as the Horror Fraught tool.

    Planning for Swaging Force

    Hey Gang - Looking for some input/guidance on an operation I don't have any experience with for something I'm working on:

    I'm looking to expand (and swage seems to be the correct term, although...
  7. Manufacturing Round Groove Conveyor Roller Grooves

    Hey Gang - I feel like I'm coming here with generally weird questions lately, that are only somewhat related to machining, but I always get good answers, so......

    Anyone ever make round groove...

    I'm glad I asked here - I wound up getting way better information than I was able to get from my contact at the robot company, who just dumped me off on someone with a "Sorry, can't help, maybe this...

    Are you guys the Abtex in Dresden?

    I (my day job, if not me personally) probably have some interest in a couple of these if that's the case.
  10. Order of Magnitude for Operational Cost of Robotic Weld Cell

    I posted this on one of the Industrial Robotics forums I'm a member of, but it's not real active over there, and I haven't gotten any input. I also asked my Fanuc Distributor, and haven't heard back...

    Put something soft on the table, preferably something that'll catch the tool and put some pressure on the tool with a prybar while hitting the release button on the controller. It might take more...

    Wait just a hot second! Are you trying to tell me that the primary purpose of a paper print in a machine shop is not as a chip & coolant shield? Blasphemy!

    :crazy:

    It's not so much a fear of reaming as it is super inconvenient on my machine, and the inconvenience of the process itself.

    That said, one of the reasons I'm looking for a rule of thumb tolerance...

    Good thought, but there's no tolerance block on the drawing.

    That's a fair point, and if you had shouted it loudly enough I probably would have heard you! (I live in Good Ol' Wayne County - I was actually in Canandaigua for dinner just last week!)

    For my...
  16. Opinions for tolerance required on a "REAM" Callout?

    Hey Gang - Kind of a weird question:

    I have an old, old print with a thru hole callout for "REAM .501"

    The obvious thing to do is run a .501 reamer through it, but I don't like reamers, and my...

    Chevy Volt? Isn't that the one that costs taxpayers North of six figures every time GM sells one? (Which probably makes it good financial sense to buy one...)

    The typical expectation is for +/-10% voltage from nominal. So anything labeled for 230V should be fine with anything from 207V-253V.

    I've heard some servo drive manufactures say they really want...

    Quoting custom machines is, in my opinion, about as bad as it gets. We have to 'guess' at the cost of manufactured parts before the DESIGN is even done, and do the same with design hours, assembly...

    Has that ever actually worked for you? Have you even ever tried it, or is it just one of those things people say on the Internet because it sounds good to them?

    I design and build custom machines,...

    For medical devices, yes, very common.

    If you have tight tolerances, make sure your instructions for electropolish are very specific - typically a certain voltage for a certain time.

    I think how they price things is much more accurate for fab work, because I've done both fab and machining for them and found their prices on something lasered or waterjet to be about right (which...

    I was all set to order these when I saw they're based in Canada, and can't/won't ship internationally - bummer!

    It's actually more about finding some fun in machining again, and the reward of learning something new. It's a bit of a grind right now...
