Treg / HAAS TECHS/ Anyone,
Not technical geek so someone set me straight if I am way off here.
I have a HAAS TL-1, which has maximum spindle of 1800 RPM. I can see in the parameters there are settings for max spindle speed, feeds, etc...
If I alter these settings to anything greater I don't get any noticeable results.
Isn't the motor and drive capable of greater speeds than the factory 1800 RPMS? As well as the feeds?
I have some small work I would like to do with higher RPMS.
What I was thinking is that there might be a combination of other settings that also need to be changed. If tweaking these settings is even at all possible.
Figured I could get more spindle speeds by just increasing the motor pulley size. It does look standard.
The rapids would be awesome to speed up. 200 IPM is a bit slow sometimes.

Its more complicated than you think than just simply bumping up the max rpm value. You have to adust the spindle frequancy parameter as well. Can't remember the calculation or exact parameter number off hand. That spindle isn't designed to go much faster, its specifically design just for the TL-1. A larger spindle is on the TL-2 / -3 models.
As for the rapid speed, the servo motors will only turn so fast. Ball screw pitch plays more of a role in rapid speed then the motors do. And of course, all this playing around with parameters void the warranty.
