General Mach Discussion / ATC for Tormach
« on: January 21, 2008, 09:42:35 AM »
I’m looking into building a ATC for my Tormach.
I’m going to build one that works like a Haas tool
room mill tool changer.

It will sit to the left of the spindle and slide under
it on a track and hold 10 tools in a round magazine.

The Tormach is setup with steppers, should I put a
stepper on the magazine to index it or use a servo?

Hi guys I wired a probe into Mach3 today.

When I tested my probe I found that it needs
to be normally open. 

My probe is normally closed,

How and where do configure Mach to work with
this probe.

Greg take you time, if I had one here it would be 6 mouths before I could use it anyway!

So what you are saying is when I use the end of my edge finder as the master tool T#0
it's a wasted move?

I should start with T#1 and go from there?

When you say datum are you talking about T#0?

I have an edge finder that stays in a holder
that I set my X0,Y0 and Z-T#0.

So I put my edge finder back in and rezero T#0?

General Mach Discussion / Changing tool offsets
« on: December 14, 2007, 12:15:57 PM »
I making a part that uses 4 different tools.

The parts are ruffed out in a band saw.

The first tool is a flycutter to cleanup the part
and prep it for the other 3 tools.

After the flycutter makes it’s pass what it leaves
will be Z 0 for the other 3 tools.

Now for the question.

If the flycutter doesn’t cleanup the part on the first pass
and I need to take lets say another .010 to make it cleanup can I go to my offsets page and add .010 
to TOOL#1 and rerun the operation?

I am using a .375 dowel and rolling it under the tools
when setting them up.

T1 is always -.375

Or do I have to go threw the setup again setting

T#0
T#1
T#2
and so on.

Thanks for your time you guys are so much help!

Chris
