    Hello
    Can anybody tell me if it’s possible to mill an ellipse with a milling head on a Weingärtner Rotomill MPMC (turn-milling-machine) with Siemens 840D controller????

    Here an example program.
    ASCALE Y 2.0 ;scaling Y axis one factor 2, 1mm programmed traverse path are 2mm

    N80 G0 X0 Y0 Z2 M107

    ;simply program a 30 circle
    N10 G0 X0 Y0 Z2
    N40 G1 Z-5
    N45 G1 X-15 Y0
    N50 G3 X15 Y0 CR=15
    N55 G3 X-15 Y0 CR=15
    N60 G1 X0 Z0
    N65 G0 Z5

    SCALE ;scaling deselection

    creates an oval of 30mm in X and 60mm in Y
    It’s actually quite simply, hope I was able to help you out!

    Kind regards
    Hugge

    Yes that a way to do it when you mill in X and Y and the tool axis is Z.
    Because it’s a Weingärtner Rotomill MPMC (turn-milling machine) I can imagine quite well that the ellipse is milled on the jacket and that the milling axis lies on the Z axis. But it’s not clear in the question. We will need more information: a sketch, setup situation and more details about the tool.
