Milling my first part - short clip

2011

 
 

So, after a long period of doing other stuff I have now got the mill to work and set up the post proc. in my cam program. I made one first test part that is a bracket for an inductive sensor for the mill spindle.

The mill is great. It hits the dimensions within 0.02mm (I will hunt this later on because I have an idea of where the play is) The part in the video is in POM plastic, but I have done several tests with aluminium. The larger stronger spindle is running smooth and cutting more aggressive with ease than the old one.

There is still a lot of stuff to do, enclosure, operator panel, installing the cooling etc etc but its working and I can now make parts with it.
