    Fadal VMC 4020

    Hello all members,

    I have a question to forum.
    Our factory purchased CNC machine: FADAL VMC 4020.
    If possible change on this machine milling tool orientation from vertical to horizontal. We need this for tap 1/2 NPT hole on extrusion profile which 36" long.

    Thanks,
    Stanislav

    or possibly this is a format 1 or format 2 question........ Q value.. in the SETP format 1 uses the Q for the pitch for example 1/4-20 it would be Q.05 with F as the rpm..... where as with fanuc a 700 rpm would have a F35. commonly

    I am going to go with neither Rodney and suggest that what they want is a right angle milling head and compression/tension tapping tool

    Yes you would need a right angle milling head and floating tap holder..
    But this will cost near what the machine is worth; they are very expensive. If there was a large quantity, get a flex arm tapper. If necessary you can drill/ ream on a floor model drill press.
