5 axis post change depending on trunnion position

Recommended Posts

Hello guys!

We bought new Okuma mu4000v and I need to make some  changes in my postprocessor. I have post for our  mu5000v which works fine and I want to set up this post for new machine.  Main differences of those machines is trunnion position according to XY axis. I'm adding some photos to make it clear.

Is there enough to change only vector section of the post (added the photo) or is there something else?

For MU5000v vector section in the post looks like this:

Can you just copy the machine definition and change it in the machine def?

That looks like MPGEN5AX and don’t think that is connected to the machine definition. Need to get a hold of your dealer and get the PDF for that post it has a lot of good information on what you need to do.

That one is not connected to the machine and control def. You can change the settings around to run a BC output, Are you running G169 and CALL OO88 from that post? If yes you may need to do some work in there as well if you are running a 3+2 safe approach for 5 axis

Hi guys!

Yes I'm running CALL OO88 from the post and it works fine for 3+2 applications (there is no need for G169/TCPC at the moment). And I'm wondering what changes to do in the post to make it work for the new machine. I have open post from HAAS UMC 750 - I will try to copy some logic from that post. Is there enough to change post in the vector section or I have to change something in the machine definition manager?

Thank You for the answers guys!

Best regards!
