  1. Cool to share how you did this?
  2. I set it up like this a while back... [if not (nextdc$ = 3 | nextdc$ > 7), *speed, *spindle] so the spindle won't turn on for tapping or any drill cycle over 7, which is where my probing cycles reside.

    Smart Machine Tool

    The VTL's & Boring Mills on their site look to be HNK's. Korean company that builds some seriously big machines. The smaller machines....who knows????

    mind blown

    Glad I am not the only one. I can assure you that I am not muttering under my breath though.

    5 Axis - Swarf - Smoother finish advice

    Cut tolerance & the one I use a lot for transitions like that is "Maximum Angle Step" on the tool axis control tab.

    Fanuc G68.2 with rigid tapping

    Ran into a very similar problem on our MX330's a month or so back. Exact same error & everything. We could tap fine using G68.2. However when I tried tapping with G54.4 active, we got the exact same error. (Y excess) Fanuc had to come out & update their software....Things are happy now.

    Ugh. They didn't fix the toolholder creation from .dxf bug. R-16953

    Tap extensions

    They actually have a taper machined (or edm'd) into where the square fits into the socket. When we first stared using them, we did have a couple fall out. We just weren't seating them hard enough. We have them on a robodrill that has done thousands of holes, no problems. No issues running them in high production.

    Tap extensions

    Ive run the tap associates ones a lot. Way simple. The only thing is they kid of require a bit of "feel" to get the tap seated tight, but not too tight. Way nice for reaching down past shoulders, etc.
  11. FWIW we run a bunch of Pioneer stuff & haven't had any issues. Inventory on the shelf has been a problem tho.
  12. I believe on a Mori NLX machine you can do CSS with the Y axis. Its a parameter change somewhere.

    Fanuc G68.2 with rigid tapping

    A little off topic....but tapping in IPR (G95) is an option on a Mori NHX. The local application guy even told me he never heard of people tapping in IPR. Needless to say he gets no phone calls for assistance from us.
