General Mach Discussion / Robot part loader for CNC Lathe
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:14:29 PM »
Loader for CNC Lathe. Should I go Mach 3 or 4. Servo or Stepper. What for the PC and OS. I need about 30 to 40 I/O. It has to be robust to run 12 hours a day. Change the part every 2 minutes or less and run in a big shop 50 plus CNCs in shop temps from 40 to 115 degrees. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Chris

CS-Lab / CSMIO I/O both Sink and Source
« on: May 08, 2014, 12:07:44 PM »
I believe the I/O can be used in both Sink and Source depending on how you wire. In the example (see attached pic) it shows both a NPN and PNP proximity switch being used. It's all about how you hook up the output. I believe the same could be done with a limit switch as well. You either hook the switch into the + or - side of the input. That is why each input has both connections. Hood correct me if I'm wrong.

Show"N"Tell ( Your Machines) / Acroloc with Fanuc 6MB to Mach3
« on: May 08, 2014, 10:14:28 AM »
The project:
Acroloc  Machine with 12 tool ATC and Fanuc 6MB.  I have been playing with Mach3 and have purchased a PoKeys 56U and have made some prototype operator panels and have tested using the PoKeys.
The Yellow cap analog DC Fanuc servos are in good working order so I want to keep those. The Fanuc still runs but 16K of memory is a killer and max feeds are slow when doing engraving. So I’m trying to decide on the following.

KFLOP with KANALOG  Analog servo plenty of I/O  Not a lot of posts so how good is support?
Vital Systems DSPMC   Analog servo but would also need from CNC4PC  ( M27, M28 & M29) for I/O   Lots of posts and good support?
CS-Labs CSMIO-A    Analog servo plenty of I/O  Lots of posts but from overseas so how is support?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Attached Pics  are the machine as it is now..

General Mach Discussion / Relative Position DROs
« on: April 27, 2014, 04:36:28 PM »
I'm a newbie to posting so I hope I didn't post this twice.
For anyone who may be interested I have created a Relative DRO that you can set any axis to 0 yet it doe's not affect any other DRO. It is generally used as a Position Display you can zero out if you are cutting your fixture or some other Jog or MDI type move that doe's not affect you Work Offsets. Just to keep track of a temporary zero point.
