Hello fellow Kiwis, I used to live Wellington but moved to Canada where I have been for the last 30 odd years in toolmaking & aerospace with 20 of them in CNC. I am just finishing the rebuild of a Royal Oak 4H-72 De Vlieg and retrofitting it with a Heidenhain iTNC 530 control. The machine has both angle plate and CNC rotary tilt table. The machine is full 5-axes with programmable W-axis (platen) and programmable C-axis (spindle bar). It has infrared part probe and onboard laser tool measuring system. We have run the laser and the ball bar and the machine checks out as good as a new machine. We have cut the NAS circle diamond square and it is better than what I thought it would be. Small problem with the rotary tilt table though. While the table (B-axis) checks out within a few tenths with the autocollimator the tilt (A-axis has a runout of .0012" which is unacceptable. We have isolated the problem and it will be finished next week ready to input the kinematics table in the control. Once the machine is commissioned it will be machining aircraft engine parts.
