    Swapping Heidenhain DDC2 drive controllers to test - Simodrive 611

    Im trying to troubleshoot a simodrive 611 with Hiedenhain DDC2 optical drive controllers. I want to swap the DDC2 modules to see if the error (x53) follows to another axis. I searched both machine forums and the Siemens site and seems like no one has ever done this type of test. Has anyone ever...

    Want to run a job today and the door safety switch started acting up. It does this once and a while and I just do a soft reset and proceed. Machine was running ok for an hour of two setting up tools before this happened. Then it threw a 53+ error and I had to restart. I tried adjusting the door...

    Calbrating Laser Toolsetter DMG DMC103V SIemens 840D

    My 2000 DMG 103V with 840D control has a laser tool setter that works ok but can't measure the length of tools .125" and under due to misalignment in the Y plane. Been that way since I got it with only 180 spindle hours on it. Its very accurate in measuring tool length on anything larger than...

    2001 Bridgeport EZpath III SL, Where is the backup battery for tool offsets?

    My lathe started losing the offsets once I power down. Still runs/boots fine but have to re-enter every power on. Cant find any mention online of what battery backs this info up and where it is. Of course, nothing in the operator manual. Also, the correct procedure to replace it. Anyone know?

    Rotary axis speed way too slow Siemens 840D

    Tried to program a simple polar pocket with three repeats on my DMG DMU103V and the program runs, (after my post guy made some changes to put an X -Y axis move on the same line as all the A axis moves and fix repeats), but the A axis moves are at the F speed of 16, in degrees per minute! Waaaay...

    4th axis programming issues 840D

    Made a cylindrical part with 4 ports on my DMC103V 840D control. Ran into a few problems that I was able to sidestep and make the part but trying to figure out what the problems in the code were. Cylinder with 4 ports. Polar milling with 3 repeats. Program runs fine until it hits N1546...

    Anyone using Blaser Vasco 7000?

    I picked up a drum of Vasco 7000 (and a blaser mixer!) from a closed shop last month. Put it in a couple of the manual machines, and my FP42NC to test. Seems ok no smell at all and really slippery to the touch. Im using 585xt in all the other machines and I like it ok (Other than the sometimes...

    Trying to get my laser toolsetter up on DMG DMC103V 840D

    Ive got a 2000 DMC 103v with 840D control. Had it a year and a half and after poking around, figured out how to get the laser toolsetter to work when I got it. Just load the tool and enter M91 in MDI to have the length offset loaded into the offset page for that tool. I got partway through...

    B&S Microval 454 MM3 compatible with 454 Relex controller?

    Ive got a microval 454 CMM running MM3 on a cpu through the black box. Had it awhile and it works fine, replaced a couple hoses over the years but no leaks. A reflex 454 is available cheap that has a bad y scale. Looks like the connectors on the reflex box are identical to those on my black box...

    New to me FP1, Looking for parts trades?

    I picked up an FP1 yesterday. All working great, no visible wear on the ways, (except the coolant pump that is noisy and wont pump the cutting oil that was still in the sump). It came with a set of decker branded collets and the MT4 adapter for the smaller decker collets. However, it didn't...
