RPM variation with G76 cycle use
« on: February 03, 2019, 04:04:50 PM »
I noticed a particularity when using the G76 thread cycle.
Give an example
I do a thread at 800 RPM,
and then following various problems I decided to change the number of shifts from 800 to 400, I noticed that Mach4 no longer takes the correct step, so as to ruin the first cycle of passage.
is this condition for you too, or do I have the wrong settings?
I ask, because when I tried Mach3 Turn before using Mach4 Lathe, it seemed more stable in the thread, even though I changed the number of revolutions while running the loop did not ruin the thread.
this is the link to the video of when I tried Mach3 Turn threading and sync


thank you in advance for any reply!

Have a good reading / study of Threading On the Lathe Mach3 write up which can be found in members doc's.

Can't be of any help relative to Mach 4.

it was just an example, to figure out if I have wrong settings on Mach4, or has very specific rules.
what seems strange to me is that if I make several empty cycles without giving any increase, the thread is slowly ruining.
this did not happen with the tests done with Mach3.
Am I wrong or is it Mach4?
I asked just to compare the results with other users.
