    Pre Stage Tools

    In your machine control definition under tool tab there is enable staged tool routines
  2. Haas does not allow comp on a g2 or g3 move. Comp line has to be a g1. Have A line entry and exit on lead in and lead out. It does not have to be a long line. In my eg below I have it set at 55% to avoid stock.
  3. Yes it does... at least mine does, grabs both lathe and mill licence.

    late verify thread question

    I am playing with this setting in 2020 and keep getting Unexpected error occurred while trying to simulate a true thread. Would this be in relation to system specs?

    Paperless reporting on shop floor

    A company I used to work for had implemented something like this for their shop , https://www.google.com/search?q=mr+narrative&rlz=1C1CHBF_enCA774CA790&oq=Mrnarr&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.6847j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8. using Ipads. It worked pretty well provided it was used properly. It worked with a book, chapter and page system. The book being the part/part#, Chapters being machine/tool setup, Quality issues and alerts, assembly instructions etc. the pages would then be the different tools with relevant info. Whenever someone added a page to a chapter such as a quality alert it would go live straight away.

    Mastercam Lathe

    Fanuc and HAAS controllers both have separate incremental letters assigned for each axis, X=U, Y=V, Z=W. so there is no need for G90/G91 as with a mill. I cant speak for other controllers.
  7. Yes, very familiar actually. A company I used to work for made hydraulic cylinders, multi stage rotary spools, manifolds, etc,etc. for heave machinery for pressures up to 5000 psi. I did all of their lathe programming. For some of the oil seal grooves that could not be reached with a measuring tool were then tool controlled by having the groove bar cut a land that could be measured. This practice was also verified by cmm. We used this method to control the depth of any and all grooves whether they were on pistons, glands or rotary spools and it proved very effective. If the groove happens to be wider than the tool you are using then essentially you are boring the bottom land of the groove with a grooving tool.
  8. Hi All, First time posting here. Why not finish the bore diameter with the same tool that you are cutting the groove with? That way the groove diameter becomes tool controlled then all you have to really measure is the bore.
