    Re: Vise size for a Fadal 3016

    No problem glad I helped. I personally would grab the 20” vises due to the extra capacity but I would be using it on Fadal 4020 or 5020as so the 20” works out perfect. I do think the 20” orange will...

    Re: Vise size for a Fadal 3016

    Sorry about the confusion the table had a Kurt hdl4 which is a 4” wide vise thereby throwing all proportions out.
    I do not own a Kurt dx6 I just know it’s similar to the parlec in size.
    The parlec...

    Re: Vise size for a Fadal 3016

    Standard Kurt dx6 or I use parlec pws-6900s. I used them and even left the handles on. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190404/31dbdda2336f3a58a3d021b8896762d8.jpg

    Re: Concrete VMC

    How do you like the table at 110cm? My larger vmcs (fadals) have table height around 85cm.

    Re: Fadal Utilities - Finding center

    I would like to understand a bit more aswell I’ll be out of town for a bit but when I get back I’m gonna try to ask some of the people who made fadals. Because I hate how it won’t remember what...
  6. Re: Indicator Resolution for Backlash Measurement

    Yes I bought a .002mm indicator for all my really precision things. But I use a .0005 for most everyday tasks.

    Re: Fadal Utilities - Finding center

    Use the midpoint utility and go in and delete all the values except the x value before you calculate and then insert. Or just for safety I always do the dimension I want with midpoint first then go...
  8. Re: Indicator Resolution for Backlash Measurement

    Depends how accurate you want to be. Personally I have used both you can read between the lines on a .0005” indicator.

    In my experience all my backlash numbers are under .0006” so a tenths...

  10. Re: RFQ: Enclosure (Waterjet/Laser, brake, PEM fasteners)

    I appreciate you responding because that’s all I was asking before for you to let me know that you did not want the parts.

    As far as confirmation I spoke to you on the phone we agreed on the...

  12. Re: Troubleshooting New Glentek inverter issues.

    The breaking turns on when the bus voltage goes above a set amount. Around 380vdc. Like I said I think the add on card from glentek will make your old drive work but you may need to replace your...

    Re: Tool changer Slot assignment

    That’s a good question I’d like to know the answer to as well. I leave a slot open for my 3d taster at all times that’s another tool I could have in the machine.
  14. Re: Troubleshooting New Glentek inverter issues.

    Is the voltage going into the drive correct? 230-240v no higher? Also seem like low ohms on the resistor? But may be correct I dont remember. Is there a fuse in the drive for the regen circuit? Also...

    I always wondered how they remanned spindles. Now I know that I would never want a Renan built by them. Jeeslus that video had tons of cringe in it for high dollar spindles. If I had time and needed...

    Re: Looking at buying a Fadal

    Fadalcncs website sucks it’s a known thing. I’ve called them there but I don’t think they care to do anything about it. Otherwise their phone service is pretty good although their tech service ain’t...

    Re: Help with Fixture Offsets

    The way I do it with my Fadal in format 2 is to set all tools based off the table.

    Then I’ll go to T1 my 3d indicator. Next I will head to MDI and type

  21. Re: Fadal 4020 complete control system for sale

    You’d probably be better off just going for one of the Fadal control retrofits already out there. Once you consider all costs 8k ain’t too bad considering the cost and time of a proper retrofit and...
  22. Re: Fadal 4020 complete control system for sale

    Why did you scrap the Fadal setup for a pc type thing?

    Also if I may ask how is the pc thing working out for you? Did you get the atc working fine?

    Re: New Fadal Machines

    Saw some on eBay for pretty cheap. The machines do not look like the original ones at all if the were I’d be surprised and looking more into it. Mostly for parts comparability.
