General Mach Discussion / Re: Servo Basics

Jvaldes - thanks for the reply, however its too late, I already have the motors, yes probably overkill but I aim to transfer them at a later stage to a large gantry router.  So there is some planning involved.  I am considering a smooth stepper addin as this might solve my problem.

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Hood,

Ahh so the motors are capable of 5000mm/m but only by useing an external device like smooth stepper?  Without an external device if I use 100KHz / 2000 * 60 this gives a figure of 3000mm/m maximum or am I missing somthing?

Thanks,

Andy

how do you derive the step per from the encoder, whats the calculation?  I was told to use 2000 however I still have no actual calulation to preform.  The encoder is 14bit where would I go from there?
I see what you mean about rapids, however it sounds like you have larger machinery and enclosed, I would be happy with around 5000mm/m but 3000mm/m is a good start point.  The servo is limited to 1000 rpm.  I have 16mm dia screws with a 5mm pitch.

Thanks,

Andy

Ahhh ok, how does the encoder affect the rapid? I have a 14 bit encoder, so I belive this to be quite high...perhaps a smooth stepper would be advisable..
I also found the rapid overide in the settings, is this adviseable or not?

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Hood,

Thanks for the response, do you alter the steps per value in acordance with the kernal speed.  Do you loose anything by having a higher kernal speed?  I have no interest in getting supper fast rapids (though it would be nice to see) would just like the system to work faster than 750mm/m.  Is there a calculation I can follow? Is smooth stepper recomended if you are using a servo system?  Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks,

Andy

Hi There,

I have bought a servo system (DMM tech) I am now in a process of learning how to set this up.  Here is my problem:

I have bought oversized motors, so I can direct drive the mill.  I am trying to work out the steps per value, I have been told to use the value of 2000 as my ballscrew is 5mm pitch and 1:1 ratio this seems right to me. However this seems to limit the mill to 750mm/m do I need to modify the kernal speed or is there another way to get higher speeds?  The encoder is a 14bit enconder, any help would be appriciated as I would like to understand how to set these values and the DMM documentation is of little help in this area.

Thanks,

Andy

Thanks Tweakie, 

Will this let me edge find as well as digitaly probe?

Cheers.

After two years of modding my mill I finally have a working CNC machine (Big thanks to all here who helped me over that time)

I have a touch probe that works perfectly - however I would like to use it for edge finding.  I used to have a screen for that but now I cant seem to find it.  Does any one else have a way to edge find & center find a circle/round stock?

Many Thanks,

Andy

General Mach Discussion / Touch Probe skew angle?
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:01:44 AM »
Hello,

If i have a touch probe and I wanted to edge find a rectangle in a vice that has not been clocked in...can mach 3 compensate for the angle...and therefore account for the minor differences when it comes to make the cut? i.e say the rectange is not at 90 degrees on the table, but a 87.

Thanks,

Andy

Yeh i have done that...mine is called fuente master mill.  It just does not get any of the changes.
