    Sometimes when the spindle stalls it will stop but then I will get an X or Y axis failure and need to reboot.

    What size spindle?

    What material? Speed? Feed?

    We have ours wired to a separate switch. As far as I know there is no hookup to the control in any way.

    Don't know what the Siemens controller is for.

    Sorry I'm late on this.

    Check the lead screws for bare spots and apparently the toolchangers are notoriously bad. I have one (without a toolchanger) and I really like it.

    Hi Nick

    I checked my machine this morning, com1, 9600, 8, E, 1, N. Everything worked fine. I didn't have to set anything up on the Gerber at all.

    Did you figure this out?

    I think Enroute will export a .ptl file. That file can be imported by ArtPath on the computer that runs the 408. If you have any other questions, let me know.

    Think in terms of chip load. Onsrud suggests 0.011 to 0.013 chip load for their 5mm drill bits. At 0.012 chip load a 4K rpm gives a feed rate of 48 IPM or 0.8 IPS.

    Advice needed

    Hi All

    I need some advice on the best (not necessarily the cheapest) way to build a 6' by 12' gantry system with X,Y and Z movement. .002 to .005 accuracy is fine.

    Any ideas welcome.

    Thanks

    What is the chip load of the bit? Onsrud shows anything from .003 to 0.013 for their 1/8 bits in laminated ply.

    Once you know that, it's easy math.
