General Mach Discussion / Help!!!!!
« on: March 29, 2008, 12:55:45 AM »
This is some weird stuff guys, After this was cut I checked my X/Y position and found that my X was out over an inch.
This sould been a round hole. I was cutting this on my Tormach.
Take a look at the code and see if any thing is wrong.

Thanks !
Could you edit the code for an example if you don't mind.

It looks like I'll have to edit my post processer file to correct this.

Hi guys
I need a little help with this code.
I can set axes A to 0.000 and it starts
running the part from that postion.
The next postion is A-135 and it will
go to that postion and everything is
on track after that but it completely
skips A-90.
There is a fixture in the tailstock that
has to be indexed.
Now I can set the fixture to the A-90
postion and start the job and all is well
but this is a pain.
The fixture has a indexing mark to set it at
A-0.000 for seting up the part.
Why dosen't the A axes move to A-90
from A-0.0 then start running the job?

Well from what you are telling me your setup is more complex
than mine will be.

Tormach doesn't send the Mach manual with there mill
it is pre-configured.

I will have to down load the manual and start there.

What PLC are you useing?

Yes I’ve seen it and there’s a guy that has a youtube video of a similar setup for a Haas tool room mill.

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3wjO0aaKLQ

I would like something a little more commercial.
Those open type tool changers will let chips
gather on them and they will shorten the useable
X travel.

Making a door that will retract will be easy.
I have a couple saws in the shop that have
blade guards that retract as you pull them down.

Making the changer will be cake.
The only thing that I will have to
trouble that I can foresee is setting up
mach to do what I wont it to do.

There are some very bright people on
this forum that I’m shore won’t mind
holding my hand when the time comes.

I do have a question, will mach take limit switch
inputs other than the XYZ’s that's on the machine now?

If I can have my way I would us limit switch’s
to let Mach know that a cycle has be completed.

This would make things simple.           

Here is a pic of my Tormach after a days work with
Acetron GP.
