General Mach Discussion / diameter of indexing disc
« on: October 04, 2007, 02:29:21 PM »
hello to all,
              just a quick question, does the diameter of the disc used for indexing affect the accuracy when threading.
                                                     
                                                                        thanks mick.

thank you gents,
                       my problem is solved thanks to Ians suggested bob change.

after fitting the new board this morning, i ran x & y axies through 50 cycles each , after which the d.t.i  read .0005 error.

  happiness !                      thanks mick.

IAN,
     thanks for the info, i have been thinking along those lines.

ordered a set of new chips for this board this morning , but by the sounds of things maybe its money wasted.

                                    regards mick.

good morning Graham,
                               have tested as you suggested,and yes the error is 4 times as big.

also ran driver test:
                         cpu 1597
                         pulse per sec 24.136
                         apic  4142
                         shortest  39.5
                         longest   46.6

JIMPINDER thanks for replying,

motors are 220ncm ? 1.8deg, drivers set 1600 steps per rev,320 per mm
 
the backlash is all but zero.

the reason i ran so many times is, after 10 cycles from 0-127-0 mm i measured a -.0011" error and wanted to know if it was
accumulating, to me it says that steps are lost in one half of the cycle,

is this correct?

hello to all,
              i have a small 4 axis mill x@y recentley fitted with 16mm *5mm ball screws and angular contact bearings ,driven by 320oz steppers through a cnc4pc g11 bob and arcuro drivers,after cycling each axis 50 times 0 to 127 to 0 the error is about .150" dti.
no combination of acc @ vel seems to improve on this, gen/config/step pulse(5),dir (5).
drives have been swopped with other motors,tried  sherline mode  but the problem is still there.
                                       thankfull for any suggestions,    mick.
