spindle stall on matsuura

Recent forum posts - Thu, 01/19/2017 - 15:56
I have a matsuura mc-1000vg-300j. I am gang cutting 286 stainless steel at a spindle speed of 50 rpm 1.6 in./min. feed. The cutters are 4.0 inches in dia. with 18 teeth per cutter. The cutters are phased so that the cutting teeth engage the material sequentially. I am taking d.o.c. of .125 and a width of cut of .2 which calculates to a .0017 chip load. Here is the issue; once the cutters fully engage the material the spindle starts to studder and actually stops for a split second and then propels forward at the proper rpm repeating this motion every revolution. I have checked runout of the toolholder and cutters and everything is good. Torque load at the cutters is 143.7 newton meters about half of the machines torque capability. Any Ideas of what may be causing this spindle stalling to happen? Do you think it could be a mechanical issue? How is the spindle motor coupled to the spindle? Anyone have this happen? I had to reduce my feederate to .6 in/min. to minimize the stalling. Anyone see this before? HELP!!!!!

MAZAK Integrex e-410i turn-mill G43 need help

Recent forum posts - Tue, 12/20/2016 - 09:30
I have got a MAZAK Integrex e-410i turn-mill machine. I try to use a milling tool to mill at B0.0 and at B90.0 deg.
I program with EIA/ISO code via Post Processor made by myself. I load the tool , place G43 by the book but the machine does not follow the correct toolpath. Missing the pivot point distance I think. Must turn the Zaxis to Xaxis distance (pivot dist plus Tool height).The output points are correct (tested with vericut).
The machine has two chucks ( C axis left and right) and one spindle (B axis 0-180 deg).
The spindle must stand above the part on vertical orientation but goes 250 mm approx on the right and 250 mm+tool height down. Does NOT calculate the tool tip shifted.
That's the code

Morning all. Well, things have been going well and I was just informed by 2 customers that quantities are about to increase when...kaput. I was in the middle of a cut and my x feed just stopped and I got an alarm that my table stop had been depressed. I checked to be sure and it was not so I backed everything away and re-booted the machine and was prompted to "press F1 to continue". So I plugged in my keyboard and did so. Upon hitting F1 the control makes it to the Acu-Rite logo screen and says "initializing. Please wait" but it is giving me an error code of 4 beeps pause 1 beep pause one beep, then repeat and won't go any further. Does anyone know what this code is? I was in a pretty heavy cut. Could I have popped a fuse? Where might it be? How can I test the servo motor? Could I have heated up a board and fried it? Any help would be great!

What do you guys recommend doing after you have a crash on a cnc machine?
Vertical mill 4 and 5 axis?
Horizontal mill 4 and 5 axis?
Just curious if there is any standard checks to do on the machine after a crash

"020 error over radius tolerance.

Recent forum posts - Thu, 11/10/2016 - 14:16
i make programs for the VTEC FANUC i Series:

my shop has always done straight line grooves with either 1/4 up to 3/4" end mills and and lots of drilling.

we are trying to start cutting out a groove in the existing holes, with a t slot bit.

in order to do this we need to make a linear and circular interpulation, which is either a G3 or G2 ,Well when i set my tool paths , evrything looks good, when i do the simulation, but when i go to run the program. the only thing that the program reads is the linear path the it tells me i have an error. i need help with the settings, if anyone could help me out this would really help.

clearing 300 APC Alarm : B axis need ZRN

Recent forum posts - Thu, 11/10/2016 - 10:18
Agreed, the B axis need to turn a bit to let the servo Drive / CNC recognize the Absolute Encoder in it, when we have the Battery changed. But what to do when the B is not rotating by any means (even after the Table is unclamped; M11), such as Jog, handwheel or even by trying to Move in ref. mode itself? I am trying to find out what could be the reason, the B axis don't rotate!(all the other axis are fine, able to establish their zero point.) Strange, what interlock, B axis is stumbled with? This issue is seen on a OKK Horizontal Mill, after replacing the dead battery. Do we need to remove the B motor from the machine and rotate its shaft by hand to let the servo Drive / CNC recognize the Absolute Encoder in it so that we can try the B rotation using the CNC later? We are stuck with this issue now..
