I have a problem in a CNC Lathe with Meldas 300v, I can transfer programs to my PC with dnc4u but I can't load the programs to machine, I guess the parameters and baudrate are fine because I can transfer to the PC but no otherwise.

ADjusting the Y axis double ball screw on a Kitamura hx500i.

I have manually jumped the brake on the slave screw. They have to be running square to one another.

I set them with an indacater. When you square them simply take the jumper out and you are good. Tighten your ball nut bolts.

Can you drill a hole in a Carbide plug?

Sat, 02/03/2018 - 05:19
Need some help from the experts as I'm getting sent some samples of carbide tips to pour ductile iron around the carbide tip but I want to see if you can drill a hole in it so I can insert a steel pin in the carbide piece to help it knit and hold the carbide bit in the ductile iron when we pour around it. Can you drill a hole in a piece of carbide?

Machine Suggestions-- For Sign Making

Wed, 01/31/2018 - 04:58
Furniture building is my thing. CNC is completely new to me, but I'm a quick learner.

Is there such a machine that can meet these requirements:

Cut individual wood letters and whole words connected up to 1/4" thick, up to atleast 4" high by 18" long?

I would like to use fonts and embellished designs to cut from my images off my iPad or PC.

My budget is under 4K--don't laugh. That's a lot for me and I'm getting the impression that these babies run high :)

miyano jnc-45-c

Tue, 01/30/2018 - 10:35
we recently purchased a used miyano and are having problems sending code to the machine thru the rs-232. It is believed that there was a lockout in the parameters that prevented anyone from erasing the programs and was wondering if that might be the problem preventing us from sending our programs to the machine.

Why dont Tialn Endmills last?

Fri, 01/26/2018 - 14:09
Hello all first time poster hope you can help.

I have been trying to use high speed machining methods on a older vf2. the machine is good for 10,000 rpm, but I cant feed much more than 120 inches per minute without alot of jerk and stutter.

I am cutting 48hrc H13, and I use HSM Advisor to get my speeds and feeds. Parameters follow

Endmill, Garr 4 flute Squar Tialn 3/8" 1" Flute
Speed 7000rpm
feed 115 ipm
step over 8%
depth 1x.
cut style : plunge into open through hole, dynamic mill paths mastercam. g187 p2 e.01

I am cutting pockets and I only get about 20 minutes of tool life out of an endmill which is only 2 pockets. (pockets are 2"x1.5" x .750 deep) So, not a lot of material moved. and the tool is on the hot side of warm after a couple minutes cutting, so I think its rubbing.

I think maybe I need to increase speed to activate the coating. 7000rpm is about 700sfm, but is that hot enough? iirc i need to get up to 1200-1600 sfm right? I also think I should take a heavier cut, but I am feed limited at 120ipm, so should i increase stepover, to say 12%? is there a minimum chipload to make sure your not rubbing?

I would love to hear how you guys would make this cut. How long would you guys expect this endmill to last in 48HRC material?


Sinumerik alarm #11 "Wrong UMS identifier"

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 20:54
Hello all,

Has anyone had any experience with this sort of problem? We had to change most of the unit on our 810t Ga3. The machine is unwilling to load is TEA1, TEA2, PCA AND PCP FILES. I can receive data from the cnc but it won't accept any of the reload files. Please help!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
