Haimer Repair & Vise Jaws Part 1

Doom, Haimer Repair & Vise Jaws Part 1

Things that happen when machining. Haimer 3D probe repair. Machining some softjaws.

My first week experience with the Haimer 3d Universal Probe did not go great. With in 30 minutes I had broken a tip. A few days later while running a part the probe fell from the BT40 ATC pot and damaged it. I contacted the manufacture and was advised repairs were not possible. No parts other than the probe tips are available.

At this point the expensive indicator was a door stop so I decided to disassemble it. I began assessing the damage, zeroing the indicator via 4 grub screws, and clean up of the rubber boot ring. I used my lathe to check out the probe position and accuracy. It now works just fine.

Fanuc Keysheet Replacement DIY HowTo

Fanuc Keysheet Replacement DIY HowTo

I have a Excel PMC 5V20 Vertical Machining Center with a Fanuc OM control. Keys below the CRT were busted and damaged. After purchasing a new keysheet, I verified fitment. The keysheets for the Fanuc are glued on and need to be removed and reapplied.

After cleaning the front of the Fanuc bezel, I replaced the keysheet and the control looks like brand new. In conclusion, I'm really happy with the results and the PCB board is again protected from coolant and other contaminates.

Home Shop Garage VMC Machining.

Home Shop Garage VMC Machining.

Home Shop Garage VMC is machining parts. I did some test cuts and rigid tapping in 6061. I purchased a used mill and moved it into my home shop. So far, the mill is in good condition and making tolerances on parts. It has taken some time to go from an older HAAS control to the Fanuc OM control.
