    In your probing there is a value for the probing sequence...
    Probly a 1. Or something...
    Make that a negative Number for the probing sequence.
    In front of your probe 0 point..
    Can't remember exactly, let me know if it works

    We have a helitronic 400 and had database corruption. On recovery some of our tool programs moved to expert mode which we don't use. Is there a way to get them back?

    there is a way to move the files back.
    but..... a corrupt database may have more problems. the best thing to do is create a backup every month or so, and just re-install the database if the hard drive goes bad.
    send me a privaite message and we can exchange emails, and Ill send you some info to move the files.
    where abouts are you in Ontario?
    what shop do you work for?

My software experience is wide. P1,P2,P3,P4,P5,P8,P32,G code or Flex Prog,expert mode and Tool Studio. I have also done a lot of maintenance on all of these machines. I enjoy programing special projects and trouble shooting problems. I would be happy to help answer any questions that I can. We are also allways looking for operators/programers for solid carbide specials.[/ Hi I have been with a heletronic power walters cnc for 5 yrs..only have pkg 7 and did some pkg 4..but my question is..is there a trick in setting up program so intersecting point of radius blends the way it should..it is somewhat passible but not accurate. Ty for any ideas or help on this..be much appreciated! I Guess site needs longer explanation more characters! Should I program a false width of diamond wheel and radius size?

    We have a heliotronic 400 machine. I would like to make a backup of our hard drive since the drive itself is 11 years old.

    The drive is a 1gig seagate. They don't make those any more and the machine/ comp/ bios won't recognize any of the larger drives.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hahn

    Re: Walter CNC Grinders

    Hi, I'm working with a Walter Helitronic Power HMC 500 running on WALTER Window Mode that has just been sitting at the corner of the shop and I'm suppose to get it running to resharpen drill bits (both carbide and HSS). Unfortunately, no one here is sufficiently trained on the machine, so it has been difficult to learn everything/find useful resources. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction as to how to set-up the machine for sharpening drills.

    First step is to determine what wheels to buy and what configuration to have. How do you determine what kind of 1V1, 1A1, and 11V9 wheels you should use?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Need a few more details on the drills before anyone can give some direction.

    How many flutes?
    Straight drills or step drills?
    Diameter and flute length?
    Point type? Standard or Facet?

    If it's a simple 2 flute drill with a standard point, all you need is a 1A1 and a 6A2 (4A2 would work as well but you can't dress the inside of the diamond). You can use this setup for facet points as well, but I preferred to use an 11V9 in place of the 6A2

    Re: Walter CNC Grinders

    Details on the type of drill are as follows:
    - 2 Flutes
    - Straight
    - Facet point, but I would like to be able to do standard as well
    The sample I was given has:
    - 1/2" diameter
    - 4.5" flute length

    For resharpening carbide drills do you simply use diamond wheels of the same shape? I'm also interested if there is a standard relationship between drill size and the diameter of wheels you should use. I've been searching for info for a few days now and haven't found anything explicit.

    Thank you for your help

    Re: Walter CNC Grinders

    You will want the following wheels to start:

    Spindle 1 with a short arbor:
    Inside wheel as a 320 grit 4" 1A1 3/8 wide, resin bond, 100-125 con
    Outside wheel as a 320 grit 6" 6A2, 3/8" - 1/2" face with a small (.015-.020" corner break) 45deg angle on the OD.

    This setup will allow you to run both facet points and standard points with the same set of wheels. Keep in mind that you will need to true the wheels before grinding - especially the 6A2 as wobble on the diamond face can, and will, cause a drill to snap. I can't help with feeds and speeds as I've been out of cutter grinding for a few years and I can't remember what they were. You will also want to use a 'v' clamp with a bushing if you do not want to clamp on the flutes.

    The wheel suggestions are just a starting point and over time you can play around with them to find what works best.

    Edit: I was going to suggest some wheel suppliers but for a second post decided against it.
