EMCO Concept Mill 105
THIS MACHINE IS EXTREMLY HARD TO USE
Expect 4 hour of training for use and is currently kind of operated by Daniel Davidsen.
The machine is very hard to use because:
- There is no probe for setting origin - There is no automatic tool length tool - The machine doesn't preview g code and checks for soft stops. - If the machine is doing something a little to fast if will go to error mode and then require homing resulting in poor precision.
CNC machine for hard materials/high precision
EMCO Concept Mill 105, working area 120x120x120mm, 8 tool toolchanger, precision under 0.03 mm.
The machine is running Sinumerik for controls.
The G-code for controlling the machine for what to do needs to come from CAM program as Fusion.
For making the machine run there are 3 main steps:
1. Generate and export G-code from Fusion
2. Prepare, zero and load g-code in the machine
3. Run the program
Start by downloading tool library for EMCO105
Then import into Fusion
First go to "CAM"
Open the CAM tool Library
Right click on "local"
Click "import library"
Click on the downloaded file
Make a setup
Select orientation and the Z axis and (X/Y) axis, what ever is easiest for you.
Select your axis so the coordinate set is +Z up
+Y to the outwards +X to the left
Then select box point, its recommended to choose top middle.
Now build the tool paths, for help to this contact FABLAB
