  1. Re: Eliminateing the water cooling to the ballscrews

    Get rid of the z cooling.
    It is only there for growth of the screw as temp rises.
    Keep the spindle cooling tho.
  2. Re: All VMCs.... lead screw's thrust bearing preload

  4. Re: I screwed up in DI and now my machine won't power up.

    Hope it is something like a battery or power supply and not a cpu board
  5. Re: I screwed up in DI and now my machine won't power up.

    I am just as stupid.
    Have used the start cnc probably 10 times on one 4020 and once on a vmc10.
    Like you I expected it would restart the software.

    Both machines worked fine afterwards.

    Re: Rs232 problems 88hs

    I heard from ITS that they are interchangeable. I swapped the cards and rs232 works so the fault lies with my 1030-1c card.
    I will send off for repair.
    Cheers

    Re: Rs232 problems 88hs

    Re: Fadal VMC2216 with Calibration issues

    Ball screw pitch compensation would only be microns not the error your talking . Unless someone has seriously stuffed with it.

    Re: Fadal 4020 Moving-measurements needed

    Centre to centre 104cm
    Casting is 68cm approx so you would need that measurement between the forks

    Correct. The alarm 'not ready' is same as having estop pressed.
    I assume the not ready is due to the spindle drive not powering up.
    Will look to check these items and advise the outcome

    Re: Feed hold stops spindle

    I have a 8s and a 10hc. The 8s spindle stops the 10hc doesn't. I quite like that it stops. Great to clear a bird's nest or change an insert mid rough cut. Check clearance to the jaws in dry run.
