Horizontal Makino Mill with RAH and Programmable C axis

Recommended Posts

I have a tough application I would like some input/ advice on. I will try to explain.

I am able to get basic right angle code to output from Mastercam with G18/G19 as expected(doesn't backblock tool orientation correctly though).

Our right angle head is coolant driven and our mill's spindle can be controlled as a C axis.


Has anybody been able to get Mastercam set up to output 5 axis code for a RAH with 1 of the axis being the spindle orientation?

An example would be possibly using an end mill to mill and ID groove on a part with the C axis needing to rotate 360deg to accomplish. (Not the real application I am doing but gives a good visual of my request). 

I can provide more details as needed if anybody thinks they could give advice on this topic.

I think you are going to need a specialized post for that

InHouse Post Development (this website)  or Postability would be the people to talk to
