    Fanuc 18itb - Erratic Encoder Values

    I have a 2006 Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY with a Fanuc 18i-tb control..which has been a great machine. Lately it has been acting up and freezing due to encoder readings being out of range. The machine has encoder readings swinging all over the place and causing the programs to freeze. Here is a...

    Helical Interpolation caused 21 Illegal Axis Commanded Alarm on FANUC 18i-TB

    We have a 2006 Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY Multi-Axis Turning Center with Sub Spindle and Fanuc 18i-TB control. We are trying to Helical Interpolate and get a 021- Illegal Axis Commanded Alarm. We have checked parameter 9937 and 9930 and all are where they should be. I can only assume its a...

    Parts Catcher is waiting on FIN signal (wont actuate) on Fanuc 18i-TB

    We got it figured out.. apparently the sub spindle (b axis) has a "floating" 2nd home position that it has to be at before the parts catcher will open. Its set via a G30. This is my first FANUC control and I HATE IT!!! Now I know why people buy Haas!

    Parts Catcher is waiting on FIN signal (wont actuate) on Fanuc 18i-TB

    We just got a 2006 Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY which is a Live Tool Y-Axis lathe with Sub-Spindle and Parts Catcher. The control is a Fanuc 18i-TB The machine is great except that we cant get the parts catcher to work. The M Codes are M73 (on) & M74 (off). If I manually actuate the air solenoid and...

    Opinions needed on Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY

    How is the parts availability? I'm perfectly capable of servicing the machine myself, but without parts...I would have a paperweight. What about the overall machine quality, rigidity? -Geoff

    Direct Drive Draw Bar Replacement

    My mistake.... we had to replace the spindle because the tool release ring was broken in half and they don't sell a replacement for that.

    Opinions needed on Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY

    Iam looking at purchasing a 2011 Hyundai-Kia SKT210SY with about 10k hours on it. Does anyone have any opinions on this machine. Itll be my first Live Tooled lathe. We are selling off our Haas SL20 and upgrading. This will be our only lathe in the shop so I want as many features as possible...

    Direct Drive Draw Bar Replacement

    I had the same exact thing happen to me recently. Needed a drawbar for a 2006 VF4SS. Found out the hard way that: The direct drive spindles do not have removable drawbars and are NON-SERVICABLE. You will need to replace the spindle cartridge. We just did one last month, cost was $4000 with...

    Y axis lathe for prototype / job shop

    Don't listen to the trolls in this thread... a Haas Lathe is a great machine and will get the job done just fine! I have one and I haven't found a job that it wouldn't do. Likewise, parts are reasonable and readily available, the control cant be beat.

    haas vm2 12k spindle expected lifespan

    Installed it myself in a few hours. Total cost $3995 + Shipping & $45 Transfer Tube for a 12K inline spindle. I wouldn't pay a tech to swap a spindle cartridge...they are super easy. In fact, you shouldn't need a tech for anything on these machines, except for maybe a Lathe Spindle.

    Why is there so little discussion on the Haas VM2/ VM3 machines?

    I have 4 older Haas on my floor (1 HMC, 2 VMC, 1 Lathe). The machines work well for the 90% aluminum work that we do. The biggest complaint that I have is the HORRIBLE chip evacuation of the VMCs. They constantly need to be shoveled! Other than that, they work well and make money. If I was...

    We buy all our old Haas Lathe "threaded" holders off eBay. Haas doesn't sell them anymore AFAIK. Ive heard of people making them as well..I don't have that much time on my hands.

    haas vm2 12k spindle expected lifespan

    I just replaced one last week and it had 14,000 hours...the spindle was perfectly fine and within spec. The only reason I had to replace it was because the tool change collar was cracked and wouldn't release tools, HAAS doesn't sell that part separately so I had to buy an entire spindle...
