Amada Arcade 212

Recent forum posts - Thu, 05/17/2018 - 13:09
Hello everyone,
This is my first post and I hope I am in the right place asking for help. I have an Amada Arcade 212 (1996) equipped with a GE Fanuc 16P.
I have encountered the following problem - while working the machine stopped moving on X and Y axes. I tried putting the machine in manual and make the reference again but that did not work. I have the following error message:

How many spindles are there in a CNC milling machine?

Recent forum posts - Tue, 05/15/2018 - 01:35
By and large, all CNC Lathes and Milling machines are by and large single shafts. Most Milling machines are single shaft as it were. Multispindle Milling machines are uncommon and for the unique reason as it were.

Some CNC machines have a sub axle, ie, set up of tailstock, they have a shaft that can likewise slide pivotally.

Trickle feeding a Fanuc Amadan-04P-C, can it be done?

Recent forum posts - Mon, 05/07/2018 - 15:19
I'll start by saying that I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this, but I'm considered the engineering guy that can make things happen, so I've been blessed/cursed with this challenge.

We have a Amada punch that currently uses a Fanuc Amadan-04P-C controller, which is tied to a PC over RS-232. Currently, we are sending programs (macros is how I understood it) through this PC to the Amada, and then the magic happens. We are now wanting to expand our programs, and one challenge we are having is that we are running out of memory on this controller. So one thought that came to mind from my other RS-232 experiences is, could we trickle/drip down data to this controller instead of uploading a complete program in one go? What I'm ultimately trying to get to is, if we can avoid replacing the controller and instead with the help of a PC upload segments of G code (I think this is what it is) over RS-232, then we solve our memory problem and just keep trickle/drip feeding data in to this thing.

Is the idea crazy or impossible?

WIRE MACHINE - Cutting speed went down drastically

Recent forum posts - Mon, 05/07/2018 - 04:44

I have Fanuc wire machine (Tape cut - model 1). It is the old one, but still in a good shape :)

English is not my native language, and I am not a person with a technical background I hope you will not have a bad understanding.

In the last period, cutting speed went down more than 2x. I am not able to figure out what is the problem. I have a feeling when a machine is in the process of cutting that wire is sticking to the piece.

First I was thinking the water is the problem but after I changed the complete system problem repeats.

Machine works well, I always have correct measurements after work is complete, but work is very slow.

Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong? What should I check?

In the attachment, I have one image. Can someone answer the questions below once he takes a look at the image?

What is correct name of these two switches, and where I can order them (e-commerce site would be the best option)?

Could they cause the problem why machining is slow?

Can I take them out and clean?

How to identify die casting vs CNC?

Recent forum posts - Wed, 05/02/2018 - 07:59
Hello! How do you know if a product was made using CNC machining or die casting? For example, a phone back cover. The Google Pixel 2 has an aluminum chassis. How can I tell if that was made using CNC or die casting? Any input would be appreciated!

HAAS tool setter arm is loose

Recent forum posts - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 11:29
I not sure why but the arm on my 1999 SL20 lathe has suddenly become loose. that is to say there is a lot of wobble at the pivot where the arm swings down into place. I am hoping to get an idea of what I am getting into before I start tearing it apart. Has anyone had experience with this or know what may need to be done? With it the way it is now my lathe man can be off by over .200" which makes it less than worthless. so he is doing it the old fashioned way with a piece of paper and touching off then taking a light cut to verify. Slow but still efective

first CNC router, where should my zero position be?

Recent forum posts - Mon, 04/30/2018 - 04:32
I have homing switches and I'm unsure if my zero should be right after they are done doing there homing or if the zero is supposed to be the center of my build volume?

Miter saw or portable table saw?

Recent forum posts - Fri, 04/27/2018 - 02:50
Hello everyone, great forums here and your advice has helped a lot in the past!

I am a beginner who has made a few small projects and I'm considering buying either a miter saw or portable table saw: I use our wood-shop at work to cut a lot of my wood for my projects and would like to be able to do that at home. Been using the chop saw for cutting 1x2s, 2x4s. I have rarely used the table saw and have resorted to my circular saw and straight edge to cut small boards. Anyway, I do have limited space and thought a portable table saw may be more versatile because I can cut flat boards as well as cut 2x4s? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Any body need Haas CNC help?

Recent forum posts - Thu, 04/26/2018 - 12:04
I need help with our 1999 HAAS SL 20 tool setter it has become loose where the arm pivots down into place and is basically worthless for setting tools right now. I have been searching online for something regarding this model and can find nothing. I have found that newer models have some adjustments that can be made via a couple of set screws but ours does not look the same as those. Nor does it have the set screws for adjusting unless they are inside the housing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kitamura Mycenter 1 Help Please

Recent forum posts - Tue, 04/24/2018 - 00:15
Hello all,

I have a 1999 Kitamura Mycenter 1 mill with the Yasnac i80.control. My issue is this, I have searched all over the internet can't figure this out. When the machine is in Auto Mode running a program sometimes after a tool change the machine will stop, and not continue the program flashing MS on the screen. Always happens after the tool has changed. I have to reset the program call up the last N number and hit cycle start. Can anyone tell me what could cause this? When running multiple tool programs this causes issue with production. Thank you.
