Just wondering how you set your work piece coordinates on a Mazak lathe for main and subspindles?
I'm not sure if I should use mazatrols coordinates or G54,G55 etc.
Which would be easiest to set each time? I've only ever used mazatrol but now after getting featurecam I need to know which is the best way to set these.
Our machine is a quick turn nexus 200msy
Any help appreciated
Thanks in advance
I worked on a mazak quickturn 20 HP for a couple of years, I always used the mazatrol WPC, but I never used a fanuc program on it. My advice is stick with what you know, if you are more familiar with the mazatrol WPC then use those, else use G54 55 56 etc, they are not too complicated either.
Its quite possible that you might have to use G54 55 56 etc. if you are using a fanuc program on ur mazak. I will give it a try as soon as I can and supply you with feedback
