We recently purchased a Chinese machine which we have only started firing up last week. I have noticed that the RPM seems to run faster than the prescribed – although I cannot possibly test it. Any way of going about this?
Sounds like a multiplier issue. Get a tachometer – this way, you can see if the rpm matches with the values you have punched in your g-code. If this is the case, there is a parameter which influences the ratio of the RPM to that which you have in the code – so you will have to correct this parameter.
Ah, sorry if that sounded complex. Well, you just need to get a digital tachometer and try to see if the speed of the spindle matches the one of the Systec? Software controlling/translating the g-code. This way, you can accurately tell whether it is actually running faster, and if so, by how much.
No, did a research first, and found several different companies from there which had almost similar names. I am surprised there is an XYZ tech company… It was a little confusing at first, but we just settled with XYZ. It was a leap of faith, but it arrived in a good condition… Why do you ask?
We once made a mistake and bought one from one of the companies over there. It was a mess – I would like to drill my skull and gouge out all the bad experience I had with that machine. Goodluck, please update whenever you get any issue. I will be glad to share what we were forced to learn to recoup the losses…
I don't understand it! And I don't understand anyone who does understand it!
