  1. Good afternoon folks. I've got an odd situation here. I am programming for our Haas EH-400. I am using 1 work offset for everything. I've programmed quite a few parts on this particular pallet in this manner and never had an issue like this in the past. The part (3 identical part arranged vertically) at hand is mainly machined at B 0 then turns to B90/B270 to spot drill/peck drill 1 hole per part then to contour and chamfer the side profile of each part. Its profiles and chamfers correctly but the hole it drills are -.012 to -.015 off center of where the should be located. Checking dynamic position of the holes in the solid the program is going to the correct numbers. I'm just not understanding how it can contour and chamfer in the correct spot but drill in an incorrect location. Thanks in advance for any help.
  2. Looking for the best post processor for our new Haas EC-400 HMC. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  3. I only have one cycle option. I think if I put 0 in the peck box it will take the Q# out.
  4. Good afternoon. I have a question about tapping cycle. For some reason the rigid tapping cycle is not always an option when I am trying to tap holes. Most times it only gives me the option of tap G84-G74 and the peck box is able to be modified. I guess on some things pecking would be a good option but with 384 holes on a program I'd rather not. Any help would be appreciated.
  5. Well for starters I'm sorry about the all caps thing yesterday, my bad.... Now to the good part, I can't thank Ron enough for taking time out of his busy day to help a random stranger. Without his help I'd still be sitting here smashing my head against my desk. Honestly I'm worse then a little kid in a candy store at this point. I come to work early and stay late everyday as my passion for this stuff overwhelms me to a point I can't express. I didn't actually think I would get any sort of reply out of my post being that my status on here is Newbie but man was I mistaken... You guys are great and have some helpful suggestions, all I can strive for is to be my best and some day be able to help others that are starting with the newbie title like I am. Thanks to everyone who took time to help me out. I won't abuse the forum by bombarding with 50 questions everyday (I can't because I can only post 2 times a day) but my anxiety level for fear of being made fun of for asking a stupid question has been dang near erased. Hope everyone has a great week and is staying safe..
  6. DO YOU HAVE AN EMAIL I COULD SEND THE ZIP TO GO?
  7. HELLO FOLKS, I'VE GOT A PROBLEM THAT WE CAN'T SEEM TO COME TO AN CONCLUSION OR FIX ON. I HAVE A PROGRAM FOR A PART TO RUN ON OUR MAZAK H-400 ON A TOMBSTONE. THE PART INCLUDES AN 8 DEGREE ANGLED POCKET ON BOTH SIDES. THE PROGRAM RUNS PERFECT UNTIL THE B 8 DEGREE INDEX, AT THAT POINT THE TOOL PATH MOVES OUTSIDE OF THE PART INSTEAD OF WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO GO. EVERYTHING IS PROGRAMMED FROM CENTER OF ROTATION ON THE PALLET. THE Y LOCATION LOOKS CORRECT BUT THE X POSITION IS POSITIVE OF WHERE IT NEED TO BE. I'VE BEAT MY HEAD AGAINST THE WALL FOR 3 DAYS TRYING TO FIGURE THE PROBLEM OUT AND HAVE WORE THE PHONE LINE OUT AT QTE. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED. THANKS IN ADVANCE...
