    You can still make it work with M1, you just need to command your own escape move off the surface.

    One way to do it is to use the Renishaw protected position move to your advantage. Instead of having the machine stop with a generic alarm when it hits something in it's path, you can set a flag to...

    No experience with that particular alloy, but I did do a good amount of Haynes 282 at an old job. From looking at the spec sheet I can see it's a similar animal, lots of nickel, cobalt, and chromium....

    #1 Which control is on the machine?

    #2 Are you trying to set tool lengths on the "TOOL DATA" page or the "TOOL OFFSET" page?

    #3 Are you pressing the "TOOL EYE MEASURE" softkey...

    From what I was told by Renishaw, the token system is not being used in the US. You can just buy a primo line probe as a normal unit.

    I've used the Primo LTS on a Mazak Variaxis i-300 AWC as it's...

    My Iscar reps showed me this system. I haven't tried it, but it looks like it could be a big problem solver for tight clearance situations.

    Actually if you do G96 P2 it will use the Y for CSS. I know for sure it works on Integrexes because I've used Y-axis parting blades on them. An EIA manual for SmoothG Quick turn shows the same thing,...

    I do not, but I would set F144 bit 1 to a 1 and try it again. Good chance it solves it.

    Look at the tool data for that tool. There should be a 2 fields, one for Thrust Force and the other for Horsepower. One or both of those fields has a value that is limiting the amount of spindle load...

    The trunnion is based on the i-500, just with the HSK drawbar interface as opposed to a standard table.

    Only the big i-1050 uses tandem A-axis motors. They all use a roller gear cam design tho.

    With a compact flash card and the option "IC Card Running" you can run bigger programs in Tape mode. This would accomplish the same thing as the Fanuc if I understand you correctly.

    That's correct. I preach the gospel of TCP/TWP all the time. Sadly it usually falls on deaf ears and people still want to run everything from the pivot point in inverse time. :angry:

    No experience with the Blum probes, but I have a feeling putting M194 before every move might be part of the problem. I would try just one at the beginning after the probe comes out. I've had a...

    What machine is this on?

    Is it laggy under running a program or under the virtual machining? Running a program should be quick, virtual machining can get bogged down if it's a complicated file.
