Re: X Axis Backlash Fanuc Triac

i have the same issue, unfortunately the denford forum doesnt seem keen to help people with backlash issues. i have taken my table off the machine entirely to find that my ballscrew nuts are very worn which would explain the nearly 0.07mm backlash i was experiencing. will have to get new ones/get th...

Re: Triac Spindle head assembly drawings

hi there would these bearings be suitable for the triac spindle? there seems to be a lot of variations of the same bearing so i just want to be properly sure I'm ordering the correct pair. also is there a "proper" way to remove the old spindle assembly and bearings? i feel like I'm diving in at the ...

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Hi Iron Man, for the kit, I would need all the motors and control system for them (and dumbed down instructions for dummies lol). basically I require everything it has taken to convert your machine to closed loop AC servos but for a Triac, I wont require any of the motor mounting equipment as I can ...

Re: Possible Bearing Gone on Spindle

I've just come across the same issue on my triac, squeaky and just generally an unhappy sound coming from my spindle, so i thought i would investigate. when i rotate by hand in the direction its last turned, it feels somehow notchy but not, its very hard to describe the feeling, but at the end of th...

Re: Who designed the Triac?

I've got the standard 1997 triac with 30INT spindle, how would i go about converting to BT30 for a future retrofitted tool changer project?. are there direct replacement spindles from the models above mine, or is it the exact same spindle apart from it just requiring all the gripping and releasing c...

Re: Tormach TTS on Triac R8 spindle

did your triac come with an R8 spindle taper??? I'm looking to upgrade my triac wherever i can, I've got the standard P.C without tool changer and i retrofitted a coolant system on it which works well. I'm looking to hopefully retrofit a tool changer and better positioning motors, ideally a closed l...

Re: triac not machining properly. loosing steps??

hi martin is there any more news regarding the backlash facility in vr milling? I'm having to draw my round parts out of round on my cam in order for the machine to machine it correctly lol

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

hi iron man, thank you that sounds like a very helpful idea. i would definitely choose to go with servo motors like on industrial machines that actually work well lol. i don't need any faster rapids than 1400mm/m as the machine is so small. but i do require high accuracy in some cases less than 0.01...

Re: TrammingTriac?

hi andy,

did you find out a way to do this in the end? i need to tram my machine and not sure what the correct way to do it is for a triac.

thanks

Re: triac not machining properly. loosing steps??

is there likely to be an updated version of vr milling software that actually compensates for backlash? i don't see any point in being able to just input the figures for the software to do nothing with that information.

I'm talking about the triac. some versions required 3 phase power.

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

also another point to add, id still like to still run my machine on single phase house power and not have to go to 3 phase power once the upgrade is complete.

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Hi Iron Man, Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I'm not too clued up on the terminology and "techy bits" of CNCs. what would you recommend i do for the most cost effective conversion to have performance that you have got on your Nova Turn. I'm planning to build a sub contract production business wi...

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

hi there nice work! I'm not enjoying the inaccuracy of my triac and the noise from steppers is annoying aswell. its not terribly inaccurate but I'm not too pleased with it. I'm trying to make this triac a serious machine for production work with the tightest tolerances being +/-0.01mm and i just don...
