    Milltronics ML 26 saving programs to floppy

    Updates in case anyone has the same issue. I have two solutions. One is I found out the 7200 control uses a compact flash card for the memory. It is attached to the mother board in some way. You might have to disassemble the front panel but once you remove it you can use a compact flash card...

    Milltronics ML 26 saving programs to floppy

    I have a ML26 Milltronics lathe made in 2012. It has a floppy drive that we can't seem to get to work. I am looking into getting an emulator for it but since it's a slim type of floppy drive with a USB type cable nobody makes an emulator for it. We were going to try the RS2-32 but were told by...

    Are Marposs/renishaw spindle probes interchangeable?

    I was wondering this same thing when I came across this old post. I'm surprised you never got an answer. Did you ever find out?

    Air/oil drawbar cylinder

    Thanks . One thing I might add. I noticed if you hold the tool out button the pressure on the cylinder bleeds off so the drawbar pushes back. I think I need to source one of these cylinders.

    Air/oil drawbar cylinder

    I'm looking for some advice on an air over oil cylinder that actuates the draw bar on a Kent VMC. These cylinders are used on Milltronics and many other brands I'm sure. The issue I'm having is it moves very slow. It takes about three seconds to come down when you push the tool out button. The...

    Fanuc OI MC control Tool change height

    The main issue is step 4 when the Z moves in the positive direction it doesn't go high enough to clear the tool. I will have the end user look for the M or T code and let you know. There is a secondary issue I haven't mentioned that really doesn't have anything to do with Fanuc. The drawbar...

    Fanuc OI MC control Tool change height

    Thanks Bill. I think I should give more of a back story as to how this started. The battery on the Fanuc died. The machine owner had to reset the home positions for each axis. When they were done and tried to do a tool change the carousel crashed in the side of the head because the head didn't...

    Fanuc OI MC control Tool change height

    Thanks Bill, The issue is when the carousell returns after it grabs the tool in the spindle the head will not go high enough to clear the tool. I have no way to post copies of macros as this machine is in a federal prison and I cant have a phone or computer for obvious reasons. I have to do as...

    Fanuc OI MC control Tool change height

    I have a Kent JM 450 machining Center with a Fanuc OI MC control. There was a crash on tool change at some point. I wasnt there so I dont know details. The issue is the carousell grabs the tool in the spindle fine but the head will not come up far enough when the carousell goes back in so it...

    Blanchard Grinder magnetic chuck issue

    I'm looking for information on repair of a magnetic chuck on a Blanchard Grinder. My first visit to repair it the issue was it would come on when you turned it on but it wouldn't always cut of when you cut it off. Now the end user says it doesn't come on either. When you have it on and look in...

    Fanuc series Oi MC Tool change issue Kent JM 450 mill

    I have a customer with a Kent JM 450 machining Center with a Fanuc OI MC control. The battery for the control died and they did the procedure to get each axis back to home with the 1815 parameter and changing the APZ. After that was done and they went to do a tool change the Z axis went way to...

    Lucas boring mill issues

    The X axis is locked up on this machine. It's not the gib as I first thought. I removed the gib and the lead screw. I got the table off to one side so I can see the lead nut area. I cant figure out how the rest of the gears and bearings come out . The bevel gear is worn slap out for sure...

    Romi C420 Parameters

    I know this post is older but I'm curious if you go this resolved. I'm a Romi distributer and I'm surprised you have not gotten the support I'm used too. I have several C 420s in the field and havent had this question yet so I would have to find out but I think its easily changed.

    Fanuc Series 18-T APC alarm fix

    Yes they already lost the axis positons. I had to go through this with this machine couple years ago. It took me all day to do it because I had to google a lot. I could never get Fanuc on the phone. I want to be faster this time. They don't run this lathe for long periods of time. I told them to...

    Fanuc Series 18-T APC alarm fix

    This is my first post so I hope I'm putting it in the correct forum. I do sales and service of machine tools and I have a customer with a Ecoca CNC lathe with a Fanuc series 18 T control. The batteries in the control have died and I'm going to replace them but I have the APC alarms to deal with...
