Passing parameters for spindle speed, feed rate, etc to HHC

Postby BlueHeron » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:46 pm

We are using the CNC 46″ Turner With 3HP Spindle (which shipped to us with Vectric Aspire 9 software):
https://lagunatools.com/cnc/cnc-turners ... er-3-axis/

Using Aspire 9, a wrapped job, using a profile we made with Illustrator, we are using the “default” post-processor that came with Aspire 9, the “Laguna CNC Turner”
The G-Code produced using Aspire 9 for either the “Laguna CNC Turner” or “Laguna HHC Rotary Y-Wrap” doesn’t appear to contain any info for Spindle Speed, Feed Rate, Stepover, etc...Based on the Post-Processor code headers, I assume this info should be included?

If the G-Code doesn’t contain Spindle Speed, Feed Rate, Stepover, etc, how do I pass this job info to the Laguna CNC Turner? Where on the RichAuto A11 HHC controller can I override default (?) settings?

Roughing settings, based on 0.2 chipload and ½” end-mill bit (2 flutes, 0.35” at tip):
Pass depth = 0.175”
Stepover = 0.1” (20%)
Spindle speed = 18000 rpm
Feed rate = 180 in/min
Plunge rate = 30 in/min

Finishing settings, based on 0.1 chipload and ¼” ball nose bit (2 flutes, 0.25” at tip):
Pass depth = 0.125”
Stepover = 0.025” (10%)
Spindle speed = 18000 rpm
Feed rate = 90 in/min
Plunge rate = 30 in/min

This youtube video appears to show some HHC spindle speed settings, but not sure how it works: https://youtu.be/TB6u30819NA

All of the items you are asking about are available to be placed in the postP, but are you sure which of them are enabled in the controller? You will have to get that info from Laguna, as the A11 controller has some limitations.
