    Labview is, IIRC, capable of taking the Labview program and 'compiling' it so it can run standalone. If you're a shop that uses labview for development, the ability to compile and then deploy to a...

    I had thought about it, but it is (last time I checked) quite a bit more expensive. He's not rate limited, so the faster machine doesn't really buy anything. I'd also thought about the other 40x20...

    That was my suggestion to him a while ago. The 4020s don't seem as common though.
  5. 40" x machine - Haas TM vs Fryer vs Prototrak vs ???

    I have a customer I do work for getting his manufacturing systems set up. The parts are primarily milled out of 39" long pieces of square aluminum tube. The current machine is a milling spindle...

    On the certs, one of the NOGO gages is sitting at +2um, the other is at +13um. There is then a (roughly) 11um band where one gage will pass the part and the other will reject the part.

    I assume...

    Mustafa,

    Before you worry about verifying and justifying a rejection, I would figure out why you are doing this. There are two main reasons why someone might want to inspect and potentially reject...

    There are a variety of ways to disinfect them. Most of the hospitals are using UV. Two other methods that have been successfully tested are steam and heat.

    COTS means Commercial Off The Shelf. This has nothing to do with patents, much less the one you posted.

    I just read your that it's an off the shelf part. ISO 3269 Fasteners - Acceptance inspection, points you to ISO 1502 ISO general-purpose metric screw threads — Gauges and gauging. Here's what it says...

    Unfortunately, you don't get a measurement with a GO/NOGO gage, you only tell if it is smaller/larger than the gage. The gage tolerances are designed so that if the screw passes the GO/NOGO gage, it...

    If he's doing 2" cube parts, why would you want to go up to the S700 as opposed to the S500 he was looking at in post #1?

    The Omax Protomax (the personal waterject mentioned above) may be a good option. PM member Kustomizer has one and uses it for what looks like jewelry work. See his posts in this thread OMAX -PROTOMAX...

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear. What I meant is that because you don't have the exclusive right to park in those spaces, you can't tow from them.

    For example, let's say you're in unit C. Unit A is...

    Right, but you don't have exclusive use of any specific spaces.

    I think this is something the condo association needs to handle.

    If you don't own the parking space, or even have the exclusive right to use it, you can't put up a no parking sign. Well, you can, but if they challenge the tow you'll be on the hook. I don't know...

    I'm in one of those, but we also have a shared machine shop (manual mill, lathe, Prototrak bed mill, saws, etc), weld shop, wood shop, 3D printer, composites layup room, and oven. It's a great setup....

    Rather than getting a machine shop to do it, you might look at getting it done by a steel yard that has a drill spindle on their plasma table. I've done a fair number of plates like this where they...

    The other alternative, of course, is a stupidly accurate leadscrew. Moore's book "Foundations of Mechanical Accuracy" is a fascinating read and tells you everything you need to know to build a...

    We usually used Heidenhain LC glass scales, they are +-3um or +-5um, so not as good as the Renishaw. I think we used to hold drill countersink depth to a few tenths, but that was more of a...
