    New to me fp4nc with 3m control

    Ok nice it only went to to around 110 F, hottest area is near the top on the large diameter grey. Did anyone scrap a fp4nc and has such a clutch or ring lying around? Its used on x and y I think. Z could be larger

    New to me fp4nc with 3m control

    Some updates about the fp4. Since then it was behaving very good and I have used it already more then I could have expected. Since a week or two the X axis when running at full speed initially sounded like having a slip between the servo and the spindle but without the harsh sound one would...

    Yamatokoki NEWS BS-0 spin indexer spare

    Yamatokoki NEWS BS-0 spin indexer spare

    Jep I have 3 of them plates. Could one of you guys perhaps get a pic of this pinion shaft/lever that makes the pin slide in and out the 24hole plate? So that would give already an idea how much tooth it has. I don't have any collets from it and the chuck was also not there but I found a used...

    Yamatokoki NEWS BS-0 spin indexer spare

    Hello, Does anyone has such a little nice indexing head? I got this off an auction and it is missing a sort of pin with a sort of gear at the end that drives a dowel out that can lock the head I think in 15* increments. It is held in by a little worn screw. Maybe someone has such a head and...

    Why is M71 on my 3M screen?

    Yes, real powerful but you have to get your head into it and not after having 6 beers or so :D So I was wondering why in the 3M GA 4C manual dated 8.88 I don't seem to find a reference to the use of the conditional operators (@01 to @03). these seem very powerful to mil for example a certain...

    New to me fp4nc with 3m control

    Hmm I think as the table was flat by moving the X and Y full range probably it was set up to be that way. So if I would set it true to the spindle axis then it would be out of by the same amount moving the Y, which is possible worse even. I was planing a cylinder head that day and that's how I...

    New to me fp4nc with 3m control

    In the mean time I am already a bit used to the FP4NC. I checked the setting of the universal table with a 3D taster by moving the x-y ways, without adjusting anything to it its is still +- 0.01 over the entire table. so far better then expected. then I put a rod with a dial indicator in the...

    Punch Tape reading for Siemens 3M

    Do you think if I send you the punch tapes that came with my FP4 you could read the content? It seems the L cycles on the floppy I had are errourous and I hope the punch tape still has them in a correct form. or maybe some one else has a backup of a 3M GA4 set of L cycles..?

    Why is M71 on my 3M screen?

    its in the user manual actually which I only recently got =) Now im stuck with the G83 (L83) it always gives me a %99 error which means a parameter would be wrong but ive checked it 10 times I cant see what what parameter would be off. G81 works fine. Maybe something is wrong with the L83 cycle...

    Why is M71 on my 3M screen?

    Ok so the M71 means you are using the vert spindle in the 1:1 gear or the horiz spindle. If you use the vert spindle in 2:1 gear (63-6300 rpm) then you need to use a M72 in the program in order to have the correct spindle rpm, like for example if you would not use M72 you would end up with 4000...

    FP4A/Contour 3 SW

    Ok so it seems the memories where fine but the large IC below the D memory had a bad contact in its socket. I wonder why most of the 74 series gates are actually socketed. The other board he had most of them wered soldered in place.

    FP4A/Contour 3 SW

    a friend of me has the same machine and it seems to have a issue with the NRP card. When that one is swapped from another machine it works fine. There are 4 eeproms on the pcb w sw 44206-461.85 The 3 first ones a b c have data in them and the 4th one, D, reads empty. Is that meant to be? Ill...
