    HAAS UMC 750 Help

    Can you give more details? What does the part look like etc...

    Start up

    I have seen dramatic differences in the quality of the calculated tool path motion by doing nothing but switching to surfaces from a solid. These are typically on pretty intricate aerofoil type shapes, but I have had lifts and slight gouges that can be seen in backplot and verify that have completely gone away by changing only this. If I could get the same result with the solid I had to crank down the tolerance 5x to 10x smaller to get there and then suffer the prolonged calculation times.

    Haas VF2 accessories

    We have TR160's on our VM2's and have TRT100's on the way for them. The 160's work great on the 2 size machines. The 160 perform really well for us on 3+2 and 5x. Its pretty seamless plug and play. We mount our OTS unit on a riser to get them above the rotary. We have UMC 750's as well depends on your work and part size as to what would be better for your application.
  8. Verisurf or Delcam Powerinspect/OMV could likely handle this. Either one would probably do a demo or give you a trial license to try it out.

    Cat-40 vs HSK-a63 Holders

    HSK if at all possible. If I did go CAT40 I would get BIG PLUS dual contact.

    Makino question

    You may want to atleast look at these guys. http://www.roeders.de/90-1-Optical-Surface-Quality.html
  12. We are basically a startup from the point of view that a lot of things in the machine shop are a blank slate, especially as far as where we put it and how we store it.I have the foam on the way and we will be getting all this in place while still producing the parts needed.

    X+ for X9 PC1

    Thank you Gunther. X+ is an awesome set of tools.
  14. Can you put up a screen shot or file? You could just use a 3 axis path and do 180° the flip & repeat. If I did multi axis maybe a morph between two curves locked down to 4axis motion.
