    post programs using wired connection

    More details on your machine will help, as well as what you mean by wired? Ethernet? RS-232? What version of the control do you have? Classic? Pre-NGC? NGC? As far as I know, newer machines automatically have this enabled. There are a few things you have to go through to get this set up, but...

    Macro to create a editable tool slot table

    I don’t necessarily like this approach, as this is very error prone overall… the work you are doing to not change your tool numbers in fusion is being done at the control instead which is harder to navigate, and you don’t have access to a qwerty keyboard… But to solve your issue you can use the...

    Haas VF2 price

    To add... the options are nice, what is the actual price? Hard to form an opinion unless you are looking for what market suggests for this machine?

    New to me Haas TL2 issues

    When you say it was wired for 3 phase and you now have it on single phase... are you using a phase converter? Your spindle won't run properly on single phase power

    macro help

    What control are you using? On a haas, > should be GT, also is #7003 your probed value? Also your logic here may be flawed. The best advice I can give you is quote out EXACTLY what your program should do in plain words, no g code. Then work on translating

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    How do you feel about pro shop scheduling? Everything I’ve seen on their videos/website just seems to be executed correctly. Being that this software was originally made for a job shop, it sounds like a no brainer to me for everyone else

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    I partly agree with this being a management issue… enforcing system wide practices are a big part of management. But also choosing the right software solution that makes this as easy as possible has to be taken into consideration. Not having the proper amount of data collection centers, i.e...

    HAAS Control Skipped Operations

    Nothing comes to mind based off of the G-Code... No changes at all were applied when you re ran? No restarting the machine, changing offsets? Also, are you running the program from memory? Remote Netshare?

    HAAS Control Skipped Operations

    It’s hard to say without actually seeing the program or your specific machine settings. What year machine are you running? NGC, CHC? A few possible problems could be block delete… depending on how your post is configured, this would be a reason for skipping over lines of code. The cool thing...

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    if I could say it any louder or clearer, steer clear of E2/Jobboss… it’s accounting software at best, and even that it does poorly… There are some nice tools in their software, but for the pricing there are MUCH better alternatives.

    HAAS NETSHARE CONNECTION DROPPING

    @KrnTurb I would map the network drives, it would eliminate the problem of edits from the machine not going through. The only thing, is now you have 3 separate folder locations. When mapping these drives, you can go by either ip address(if you have your machines set to static ip, this shouldn’t...

    HAAS NETSHARE CONNECTION DROPPING

    More information would be helpful in this scenario... What kind of system is running your network shared folder? Are all machines accessing the same files, like are you running the same job on multiple machines? Linux systems utilize samba to implement the windows SMB protocol... each of these...

    Renishaw and the cutter diameter conundrum: the offsets holy war

    It seems I misspoke... I don't look for this in the setup sheet, as the Haas controls media display doesn't even support the text used for the smaller uppercase letters that fusion spits out. So most of the words don't even print out for me. Instead, since I am usually running setup I baby the...

    Renishaw and the cutter diameter conundrum: the offsets holy war

    @Donkey Hotey I was actually wondering today why Haas doesn't treat a zero offset as if nothing is there and just keep the spindle at G53 Z0

    Renishaw and the cutter diameter conundrum: the offsets holy war

    For some reason I am seeing quite a few issues that seem like user errors in this thread… however, I’m sure the same can be said about my approach. My opinion is if your machine does not have a presenter, you should utilize wear only… let’s you dial in the program from the control, without...

    Using local variables with subprograms

    Local variables get cleared on each subsequent subroutine… meaning if you nest pultiple subroutines, you can pass parameters with the alphabet addressing. Only use variables higher than the local addresses if you need to PERSIST those numbers, i.e. several areas in your program need them or you...

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    I would second adding more pcs to the shop floor. Mini pc’s are around $100, and if you want to really cheap out, buy some used barcode scanners off eBay(I’ve had good luck with Motorola symbol barcode scanners… get wired ones so you don’t have to replace batteries… and even some of the...

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    Jobboss2 is just terrible for using on the shop floor in my opinion… they want to charge for any and all customization and integration for what others do out of the box. If you can, look into ProShop, as they have methods for transitioning from Jobboss. Jobboss charges for each data collection...

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    I don't think ERP is the correct software solution to be looking at... MES better encompasses what he is trying to do. That being said, of all the solutions out there, I'm most impressed by the looks of ProShop. I have only worked with ERPNext and E2/JobBoss2... ERP is meant to handle more of...

    Shop Floor Data Collection

    @fixstuff context is everything here... are you running large quantity, low changeover? High changeover, low quantity? I think the best approach is a system that doesn't depend on your operators having to do anything manually... It's a lot easier to do this at the programming level. Whether...
