Re: Tapered thread ?

Hi,

The Turn270PRO will not cut does not have a command for taper thread cutting.

The spindle only runs in reverse.

Re: Including a centre drill hole in the design

The center drill has a 2mm tip but 5mm shank so to be used the hole must be drawn as 5mm.

If you set the depth to 2mm it will only use the start of the centre drill.

It would then use the 5mm drill to drill 2mm deep also unless you dissablesd it in the tool library.

Re: Micromill Spindle Problem

Hi, What spindle speed were you trying to run at? If the speed request was very slow it may not have enough grunt to start rotating. Set the speed to say 1500RPM with the override to 100% and see if there is any difference. It could also be an issue with the spindle analogue. The light dimming would...

Re: HELP CONNECTING VR TURNING TO NOVATURN NS

Hi, The serial cable you are using does not look to be the correct one. It should be a Black Lindy cable and is not an off the shelf serial cable. The cable should be a BI01812GG https://www.denfordata.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=765&p=23012&hilit=serial+rs232#p23012 https://www.denfordata.com/bb/vi...

Re: F1 in Schools - Ethernet IP address

The IP address will be displayed at the top left of the start gate screen.

Using an ethernet cable is covered in the race system manual from page 18.

I have attached the manual

Re: Cutting left hand threads

I cant see why it would not be possible.

The thread routine would have to cut from the chuck towards the tailstock to keep the spindle direction the same and use the same tool.

Quick Turn 2D writes threading routines this way for LH threads.

Re: New machine - how to physically move the tool?

I would check that all the fuses are OK.

Possibly you dont have the Axis motor power.
