    ST10Y Spindle wont spin rigid tap issue

    Hey there,

    So I have a fairly new ST10Y. Been trying to rigid tap (non live tool) using the main axis. When I run the operation the Z axis looks like its doing its job correctly. But the Caxis wont rotate. Just stays stationary. I'm using fusion 360 to generate the cam. Everything seems to look correct.

    Made sure live tooling is off.
    using latest fusion post.
    Strange that the tap moves in correctly but the main spindle doesnt turn.

    What could I be missing I wonder. Here is the code im running. Nothing fancy, its just a tap cycle for a 6-32 tap.

    Re: ST10Y Spindle wont spin rigid tap issue

    Hey Trilabite

    Your program is for a live-tool, not for the spindle.
    If you want to tap on centerline X0 with a static toolholder you need G84, it's not rigid tapping but it works, there's only rigid tapping on live-tools.
    We broke some taps so we use in that case a Fahrion CET-GB collet (ER32) floating holder, it has a 10mm extenial stroke, one way !!!
    Program below for our Haas ST25Y - NGC for tapping M6x1 on X0 with G84, program in Metric (G21) units, change it for Imperial (G20) !!!!
