if I'm wrapping a oval shaped mandrel thats about 80mm by 30mm what do i set at the mandrel size in the software? 80mm? or do i have to calculate the circumference?
How can I contact Turner Hunt for support ??
I'm needing to write complete nc code file by hand and have ran into issues with the "A" value.
I need to hoop back and forth at various stop and start positions. What I want is to turn the mandrel on at a set speed and drive "Z" back and forth. It seems the machine is wanting to know how many revolutions the mandrel has to turn between points. I have appx. 50 plys to wind and really need this "A" value to go away. Is there anyway to…
Anyone use the X-Winder to make a pressure vessel such as for a solid rocket combustion chamber?
Still very new to winding and so far things are moving forward easily. I have a project to do with a cylinder that has different diameters and tapered sections throughout the length maintaining a constant thickness. Has anyone had success doing similar shapes and if so could you point me in the right direction ??
when i begin my winding (2x) the carriage will go to the limit switch and then begin the next process but when it comes back it will hit the limit switch hard and just bang against it. i have tried messing with the z offset value but it keeps doing it. anyone have a solution?Read more…
Hi, Has anyone else encountered an error with the delivery head were at a random point in a wind sequence it will just ram the payout eye into the mandrel and drag it along to the end of carriage axis? I have checked the g-code and cant find any error there, I have also found if I stop the g-code executor the machine error movement continues? This error appears to be effecting axis 3 & 4.. I have this problem ongoing & its to the point were I cant complete more than 5 to 10 helical passes…Read more…
I remove the excess resin with a paper towel and then wash it with acetone or ecosolve
Make sure you use a resin with slow cur…"
