Can i separate the feed rates for the A and X axis?

Postby Arapsamoei » Tue Jul 14, 2015 8:27 am

Whenever am working on a small diameter item on the 4th Axis Rotary I usually turn the Feed rate up to level of 60-75.0IN/min in an attempt to get a reasonable speed on the time spent in cutting. Unfortunately, this results into also changing the X feed to 60-75.0IN/min making the now occasional cuts across the X axis too fast. I normally end up losing crucial steps on my machine and hence ruining the part that am working on at the time. My question therefore is; Is there any way to speed up the A axis but not the X?
Your help is highly appreciated.

I, too, would like to know about this.

You could instead replace the cutter with one of a higher quality from Badog CNC.

Am assuming you wanted to ask about the Y axis. Well, for many cutters the two are connected therefore the speed together and slow together. For you the problem is with the X axis accelerating at a much higher speed.
