Re: Flip Ops First

Correct, it makes no difference as long as you have the offset values in their respective places on the controller.

Re: Flip Ops First

Daniel, It seems that you simply need to reset your G52 offset location, that it is off by .125". It is easy to use a .25 bit when finding this location, then forget to add the .125 for radius of cutter before recording actual offset... Regarding the trim 3 sides option, I'm not real sure on ap...

Re: DXF File Nest

I have not recieved your files for review, however, another thing you can look into would be in the SETTINGS, you will also find the Part Rotation Step Angle that affects nested angle of part.

Re: Off fall labels

I will submit this request to our Engineering group and see if we can get the capability back to generate Off-fall label even when off-fall cut is not performed.
Thanks for your input!

Re: CS-43 Question

Hi Kerry,

The Model 43 has 4 inches clearance, but we utilize 9.5" of stroke due to tool change requirements. The spindle manufacturer has a 3.25 tool length limitation. If you look at the Side view on the Dimensions page for 43, it will also give you an idea of how the clearance is defined.

Re: Need to cut 96" length on CS41-48

The Toolchange safety zone which is near the back of table (near HOME of X axis) is likely preventing the full 96" perimeter cut, thus my suggestion of sheet colar to move parts inward on sheet to eliminate out of bounds error.

Re: Need to cut 96" length on CS41-48

Jeremy,

In order to avoid the limit error in X axis, you would need to increase the colar setting to something such as .06" or .125" to allow more material around perimeter of sheet as off-fall.
