    3d probing on machine

    The problem in 3d probing is, that in order to define the probe approach trajectory (which must be normal to hit surface) one must know the measured part geometry. But the reason you are going to measure this part is that you don't know it's geometry. Therefore, in addition of being goemetrical...

    BK Mikro Tool Break Detection

    I installed several MARPOSS TOOL BREAKAGE DETECTOR. Contrary to standard laser systems, this is very easy to install. Quick and reliable. This MARPOSS TBD TEST shows the actual installation in action. Stefan Cogito Ergo Sum

    lathe thermal growth mitagation solutions?

    This post COMPERATIVE MEASURENT posted by me several years ago is exactly describing such case and the simple method to cope with the problem. The method is simple, works always and immediately, no worm up times or radical environmental control needed. The program was written for OKUMA, but can...

    Hole position issues - Horizontal Mill

    I would check the parallelism of the axis of the rotation of the spindle to Z axis, and its squareness to XY plane. If they are not aligned, and the length of your boring bars differs, the error as described can be observed. Stefan Cogito Ergo Sum

    Arrow 500 probe installation

    The High Power Probes (MP700E and MP10E) communicate with dedicated OMME interface and cannot work as combo with standard OMM (see attached flyer). Stefan Cogito Ergo Sum

    What's everyone's preferred method of verifying 5 axis kinematic rotation point?

    My first encounter with the missup of centers of rotations problem goes back to 1972, while as young plant engineer in aircraft industry I had to solve this problem on Sundstrand Omnimill 5 axis machining center. The measurement methods were cumbersome (understatement big time), and the results...

    What's everyone's preferred method of verifying 5 axis kinematic rotation point?

    The You Tube video SNR KINEMATIC shows my own kinematic program. It can be executed by Fanuc controls equipped with Inspection Plus or my own SNR Basic Plus probing routines. Stefan Cogito Ergo Sum

    Renishaw probe; best way of finding center of a square tilted at 45 degrees?

    As mentioned already in the past, vast majority of the probes (tripod based) are not symmetric. The pretravel (distance the probe moves from the physical contact of it's sphere with the measured surface to the moment when trigger is generated) is not the same on both sides. The difference is...

    Renishaw probe; best way of finding center of a square tilted at 45 degrees?

    It is if you wish to find the position of certain point on surface. In such case, in order to know which point on probe's sphere is touching the surface, you must to move normally to the surface. Standard (tripod) probes are calibrated in 12 discrete position every 30 degrees, and the data of...

    Renishaw probe; best way of finding center of a square tilted at 45 degrees?

    1. You mentioned, that the probing process was satisfactory when you measured the part with bar surfaces oriented parallel to XY machine axes. This means that the square was "squared" good enough for your demands. 2. If so, it is still "squared" good enough when the part is rotated by 45...

    Mitutoyo Geopak Inspection Report

    Hi Guys, I was trying to get the information on CNC forum, unfortunately no results. Hopefully this subject oriented forum will have some answers for me. The test part as per attached sketch (simplified ISO10791-7 TEST PIECE) was measured on Mitutoyo CMM. I am not an expert in Mitutoyo CMM...

    Marposs probe feed rate

    In my humble opinion Marposs probing systems are superior to Renishaw. Regarding the measuring macros - I don't like all of them. Nevertheless I attach the manual of Marposs Inspection macros, hopefully will be helpful for you. Page 35 of the manual is dealing with the G31 feedrate. Stefan...

    Mitutoyo Geopak Inspection Report

    Hi Guys, The test part as per attached sketch (simplified ISO10791-7 TEST PIECE) was measured on Mitutoyo CMM. I am not an expert in Mitutoyo CMM GEOPAK Inspection software. Seems that the report (attached too) was "cooked", as report Line Numbers are not following. Shouldn't they follow like...

    Renishaw NC4 yasnac or fanuc macros needed

    Small remark: I understand that the macros you sent are Blum's and intended to be used as combo with Blum Laser interface. Contrary to all other touch probes, in which the "cooperation" between the device and the interface is simple, in case of laser tool setter there is a lot of "private...

    Renishaw NC4 yasnac or fanuc macros needed

    I attach the files which I wrote almost 20 years ago for Matsuura with Yasnac I80. I don't remember if this is debugged version. Try carefully. Stefan Cogito Ergo Sum
