Centroid OAK with C Axis Contouring

We have recently finished up a major retrofit on a Cincinnati Avenger 250MT 3 axis lathe. This machine was originally controlled by a Acramatic 850SX IDS control that is supported by Siemens USA. It had a couple issues with it when we picked it up that made us want to do a Retrofit on it. Firstly th...

Re: Spindle slaving with gear ratio for Fast tapping and polygonal Turning

Posting to stay informed on this topic.

This would also be e super useful not only for mill-turn machines but also gear hobs and other highly synchronized operations.

Re: ATC for Mori Seiki Lathe

Our Hitachi Seiki slant bed has a hydraulic tool changer. I mapped out all the functions and had the wires connected and ready. Mark (cncsnw) programmed the PLC. Wise $ spent. I think I could send you the code as a sample but have Mark help you as timing and other details are critical. Been working ...

Two Servos, One Axis

Are there any pitfalls with using two servos to contribute to one axis of motion? Example is one servo driving a milling quill downward and the second, driving the knee upward. Goal is maximizing available travel. Centroid already supports dual servos for bridge mill / gantry type situations. Nice. ...

Re: SERVO SPINDLE MOTOR OPTIONS MILLTURN CAXIS LATHE

Thanks, Mark. Sounds like the mechanism the page refers to is a clutch, then. We'll plan accordingly and be in touch with you if you've got room for the work and don't mind the travel. :)
