TBH I've been running in an industrial setting for 8 or so years now with mach, vmc with a tool changer.
Mostly large 3d programs cutting moulds.
There has only been one issue that has caused me problems which was probably mach, that was it not liking having two mpgs connected.
And that could potentially still be a hard ware issue that I haven't traced.
Every other issue has been of my own making.
   I would certainly say that if your hardware/computer is up to it then Mach is.

on the mastercam posts just download the one available then use the update post command in mastercam its always worked for me.

its ok i just used the brass terminal connectors out of a small choc block (terminal strip) then super glued them together with plastic insulators between each other cut from an old credit card, works a treat !!

Hi,
 im having an issue with the gecko 320x motor and supply connector, after a number of hours use mainly with the larger z motor the pin connector fails, ive heard of people soldering directly to the pins but im not so keen on that idea. has anybody out there found a solution?
regards Tony

cant see anything in there about active high and low, just ports and pins?

How do you alter the active high/low state?
yes as long as im careful it doesn't creep, which is far better than no mpg's, Ive learnt to live with it, its just sometimes it catches you out ! :o

it never creeps with the the mpg's disconnected, the creep only happens if you go from one mpg to the other too quickly and very rarely at that, im wondering how the mpg's could be putting out a spurious pulse train?, unless they are "dithering" under the correct circumstances.
    I couldn't possibly go back to keyboard only after the luxury of MPG,s !!

Roger yes I see your logic, my mpg's are cheap Chinese ones. is there a debounce setting for the mpgs? or do I need to put capacitors on them ? could it be an earthing problem? when the creep happens it will continue until I switch mpg,s  so I guess it probably is an issue with a spurious puls from that area.

ok Ive changed the computer and fitted a uc300,and the machine still creeps occasionally when using mpg's.
the only thing I can think of is that I use 2 mpg's and maybe theres a bug in mach's code?

the usb uc300 excellent and a good price, plus brilliant aftersales service.
