Axes of spindle and rotary table are not coplanar


When the X coordinate was zero, the axes of the spindle and the rotary table were not coplanar, and the rotary table could not be used for precise machining.


Fixed two fixtures on the rotary table, as shown in the picture. While the rotary table turned to 0° or the B axis was in 0° position, made them parallel to the Z axis with a dial gauge. Found the center coordinate between the two fixtures through touching, reading and calculation:
while B=0°, X=-151.010;
while B=180°, X= 151.236.
Added this 0.113 to the value of the 34090# parameter (REFP_MOVE_DIST_CORR[0], 456.977+0.113=457.090) and restarted the machine. Found the situation was improved.
The difference between the absolute values of the positive and negative X could be very small when the process is repeated. Finally it was 5μ in this example.

  1. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

    • I’m not actually good at setting up and maintaining a website. But I’d like to discuss about it in some other place.
