Re: Mirac X position changes

There is a Tab nut that tightens on to the bearings but because its on a slant it should drop down. It may be that the jib strip needs tightening to allow for wear.

Have you tried running with the feed rate turned down to 80%

Re: Mirac X position changes

It may be worth running the lubrication until you see the oil coming out of the bottom of the X axis slide.

Just create a program that runs the spindle at 800rpm & move the X axis up & down with a M99 at the end to repeat.

The oil pump is activated when the spindle is running.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

If it`s stalling at high feed rates in manual then you will need to remove & clean both leadscrew nuts.

It`s not a massive job as long as you remove & clean them one at a time & check the alignment is correct as you put it back together.

Re: Setting up rotating axis

Yes that is correct. It needs to be switched on in VRMilling.

If you disconnect from the machine & go to settings & then setup machine parameters then go to the machine capability tab & down to IV axis & set it to 1.

Re: Mirac DOS; seek datasheets / manual

The 1991 record sheet folder is not where it should be.

Hopefully the attached Mirac electrical record sheet should be similar.

Re: NovaTurn not responding to software

VR Turning will not work with the 3.28 Eprom.

We should be able to provide a V2.1 Eprom if you do want to purchase a VR CNC Turning licence.

Re: NovaTurn not responding to software

The Eproms are different for Dos & Windows software.

V2.1/b6 is a Windows Eprom so will work with VR CNC Mi9lling & VR CNC Turning.

3.28v1.6g is a dos Eprom.

You could change the Eprom to get it to run with FLSTEP.

Re: Cutting Accuracy

Hi Brian Have you checked that the play is not in the leadscrew? The leadscrew is tensioned with a nyloc that clamps up against the bearing. You can also look at cleaning out the nut on the leadscrew which you would have to remove. The nuts have a captive spring that should allow for any wear but th...

Re: VR Milling v5.69 released 23rd February 2020

If you can try it on a Non Windows 10 install it should work fine.

Still think it will be Windows 10 creating it's own directory. ( It may be worth searching the hard drive for one of the VRMilling files to see if it has created a copy elsewhere.

Is this a Windows 10 install?

If it is can you check you are logged on as an Administrator. It may be creating a virtual file.

It`s to stop the Head dropping when the Emergency Stop is pushed in.

We don`t fit it to every machine but it is activated & released by the Emergency stop relay.

Re: ATC (auto tool change) Gearbox info

Hi Pete

Hope you are well.

We changed to 2 pawls as we found that the single pawl was being distorted over time with the grub screw pushing in to it which then caused the centre height to be out. At the same time they were made slightly larger as well.
