Hi guys, I need your suggestions & help about 5 axis machining & It's post processor development in pro/NC.
- Can you please give me a description on how to go about a
- We have a DMU 60 P 5 axis machining center with heidenhain TNC 425 controller. The machine has a rotary table which is read by machine as a C axis while a tilting head which is read as B axis. The tilting head can tilt at 90 degree & becomes a horizontal machining centre. Actually the B axis is not a straight one, but at an angle with the Y axis in vertical plane so that when the head tilts about it, it ( the head) comes to a horizontal machining center position. I don't see such a machine with these axis in the option file generator (Applications > Post Processor).If u need, I have an image illustrating this machine, & I can send it to u. If you have post processor for this machine & other 5 axis machines besides this one & willing to share, I'd be really grateful to you. In case, you don't have a post processor for this machine, can you please help me in developing its post processor?
Thanks in advance, Regards,
Frank Wilson, Manufacturing Engineer.
