Subspindle alignment Hardinge Conquest

Thanks Did you ever get the sub aligned? I'm going through that procedure and now need to know what this "alignment block" looks like. I imagine it's a metal block with two cap screws to fasten it to the carriage, and some sort of screw going through it at right angles to press on one side or the other of the little cutout in the bottom of the subspindle mounting plate. Would be nice to see a picture or a drawing, or even hear a description of that little block.

Help with coding cycles on Traub TNA 480 with TX-8 controller

Recent forum posts - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 14:31
Hello,I am new to programming and working with CNC machines.Recently I have learned to program manually but it takes lots of lines of code to do roughing for example and as I saw g71 roughing cycle could be of much use there.The problem is most of the posts on net regarding cycles are for Fanuc control but I am working on Traub TNA 480 with TX-8 system and the examples I saw for Fanuc system do not work with TX-8.If anyone has experience with this type of control could you please help me?I just need to know basic format on how you set up and write cycles for this type of control.

Colchester CNC2000 fanuc 0t - parameters lost due to battery failure

Recent forum posts - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 04:32
Hi all,

I recently bought a house. Inside the garage i've found a dead machine ;)

I've replaced the batteries & found a printout of parameter N900-917 .
All the others are missing.
The machine has a turret with 8 slots.

Could anyone provide me with the remaining parameters? ( as far as i can tell, the machine was produced in 1989 )


thanks in advance

Machining a curved stair tread

Recent forum posts - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 00:51
Hi,

I've two stairs that are a bit odd in shape. I did a quick 3D draw for them:


There used to be carpet on them but we want to replace it with hardwood... I was wondering if somebody can help guide me through the process to machine these treads?
I use Fusion 360 to model and CAM.. I've access to a shopbot desktop and have used it a few times already.. but I'm not an expert...
I've left over hardwood interlocking panels from when I did the floor...

What I've in mind right now is:
1) Get the right measurements, the above is just an approximation... and transfer that into a model. Any ideas for how to accurately transfer the curve?
2) I interlock enough panels to form a continuous panel big enough to cover the curve maybe staple them into a flat MDF or something
3) Cut both treads from the same panel because if it's big enough for the lower step, I should have enough?
4) Figure out what to do with the nose? maybe get a couple of these: http://ljsmith.com/assets/files/pdf/...ndingTread.pdf if you think it's a good idea..

ideas?

I saw something on YouTube on this subject.

Ycm tool changer hang up.

Recent forum posts - Wed, 04/26/2017 - 09:36
I reset z home position and did tool change. Tool was in the spindle, but the mag pocket was empty.
The machine did the m19 and grabbed tool, it removed tool and rotated. After returning the tool to the pocket, it stopped without any alarms. I can't back arm away by usual method. Any thoughts?
My machine is a fv102a with an 18m control, the tool changer is twin arm side mount.

Hi guys.
As a CNC user most of you use Artcam and probably you know that there is not too much educational information about this software. When you are new beginner its hard to understand how software works and how to prepare file for CNC. I was in this situation a few years back. I can understand how its hard to start. That's why I decided to create video course that will hep new beginners understand how Artcam works and how to prepare files for CNC router.

About course you can learn here

Hitachi Seiki lathe spindle wont start

Recent forum posts - Mon, 04/24/2017 - 17:22
Problem solved. I forgot to put one of the two jumpers back on the bar feeder interface at the lathe. Must be the lathe spindle was locked out thinking the bar feeder was supposed to be pushing. Hey I never said this was my full time job. Hopefully someone someday will read this and it will help them.

Chinese CNC 2417 with Laseraxe CNCC MINI

Recent forum posts - Sat, 04/22/2017 - 19:29
Hello everyone.
This is my first post and my first aproach to the CNC world.

I bought a 2417 CNC from Aliexpress. Every components seems to be perfect. I followed all instructions of assembly, and then I installed the CH340 driver (usb). I run the software grblControl (Laseraxe_CNC.exe) and the software recognize the machine, because I can see the "Idle" state.

When I send some instruction or .cn file to the machine, the software seem to be working on every instruction, but the steper motors doesn't move anything. If I turn on the spindle, it doesn't move anything too. The status of the machine change from "Idle" to "Run"

The led lights on the controller board blinks when I connect the machine, blinks when the instructions of the software are running, but the motors doesnt move at all.

I measured the AC Adapter with a tester, and shows 11-12 volts, it seem ok.

I'm really a novice about the CNC world, so please if you could give me an advice of what I have to test or review.

Any idea will be very welcome.

Thank you guys!

Best Regards,
shunsho.

what is true love
