    Dynamic feeds and speeds on a Haas VF2

    ^^^ Tom you can also set the tool torque limit in the tool page and it will self adjust if the tool starts to get dull and it will auto back off. so then you can check you tool wear or adjust the ratio up or down to fit your tool. Its a little handy so if your not there at the control to stop the wreckage it will save itself. I also like to run the coolant @ 12% and that works good for TI and SS and nickel based Materials so for a V2 that pretty much will keep it going. Peel the stuff as Newbeeee says that's right in the ball park for most of those things. Good Luck and Happy Labor Day Weekend Now Get back to work Unless Your Newbeeee then go watch some races or work on your suntan

    UUUUGGHHH! I have to vent!! Mill turn...

    ^^^^ Yes to That It was always a fun time trying the unscramble the tech info they were trying to put into print and it did take some time since you would never be 100 % sure that what you were reading is what you thought they were trying to say. And I liked the little worker pictures that they added in to try and show you what going on and add that to the translation issues it was like trying to unscramble eggs and put them back in the shell with Pics ? But they have come a LONG WAY from that time !

    How do you like those roundabouts Colin?? Pretty tricky in the snow and ice aren't they ??

    Is that enough to Run big mastercam project?

    The Evo in 1tb models is pretty cheap compared to what they used to be and if your system has the space i would add more of them also and you can collect external drives as a bookcase type for offline /Non Cloud Storage and depending on the Technology those drives should be good for 10 years or so ,unless they start shipping junk then re access. But Samsung Builds A Lot Of Great Products!

    CNC Router Drilling Machine Help

    As Ron Said and also You Colin I was thinking along the same lines when we got this machine and it has a Camera for using alignment and positioning of parts to drill and route profiles thru multi layer stuff just like a router would do or a Driller like they call some of them but it is a 3 axis machine with limited z travel and the optics when you use them self aligns parts with the optics when you tell it to go somewhere and look for targets then it does it thing and you can then run or at least check the position and verify your program. It has a 60 k spindle so it can do router work and also drilling with measuring the holes with the camera based on the program. But we don't have the router in our collection but that was what i was looking for to try until i found out we dont have one or at least the option to have one at this point in time. So were fat fingering other programs to do simple stuff but that's not why we bought this Machine. Thanks For The Input and the Feedback I will keep you posted since things are in a state of flux .

    CNC Router Drilling Machine Help

    Question added to the above , What type of router code does your routers post out ? do you have any selection or is it all just Mill code like a mil Post / Fanuc code.?? since we dont have a Router machine added to our selection i can not see what or if it has the Format type we need . TIA If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated .

    CNC Router Drilling Machine Help

    We Just got a Machine that uses Excellon Format 2 program language to do drilling and routing on pcb boards and we were told Mastercam can post to or at least post the format 2 program language from mastercam . i looked for a router and anything in MC that said anything about a router , But not really sure which one or for that matter what type is acceptable that will do what i need. So i thought i would start here and if anyone has a answer to the question above It would be most useful. The Machine is a or something like this that will read a Excellon Format 2 code. That has a camera and a few other goodies. Thanks for any feedback . CADCAM3D5AXIS

    Royal quick grip collet chuck

    I guess Royal wants to do and keep there own money inhouse so that does not work well for them to give there sales up for whatever MSC will charge to host there tools on there site ? This is why most folks just work with the tools they like and order them when needed or find something else to take there place . If there is any .??

    Royal quick grip collet chuck

    ^^^ I believe MSC will stock them if you ask them and buy some goodies from them you just ask them to carry the line and then when other people ask for them they will get the sales too. They will even do custom stuff if you ask them. HTH
