By TvsP on 22 July, – 2: Silver on 20 August, – Everything works on it and I’ve fed it some basic HPGL files over the serial port to make sure the controller works. Baldor has developed a free program that converts HPGL Hewlett Packard Graphics Language commands on-the-fly into moves and commands for real-time motion control. View options allow you to preview the centerline of the actual tool path, or the entire path width. The next thing is probably to look for suitable amplifiers and motors. But to actually come away with a machine that works is another.

I have been very successful in doing 2 axis gluing applications at multiple locations. So,if you choose us,our will give you best quality productions and good price. In time regulation on speed and force,setup the origin point at discretion. I don’t know what controller boards I need to buy to make this work with G-code, and hopefully keep the same stepper motors. Your clients may be much better sticking to existing CNC technology for this purpose. Some designs use stages to move a tool across the work.

By Jones, Tim on 13 March, – 3: IMHO, a simple script based routine on a PC could pre-convert the file into that required by the positioner, doing it yourself would give you full control over the problems of little quirks.

Contfoller can even build multiple Z stages into your design. Lists are executed before and after tool path, Z axis plunge, and head change. Here’s a shot of the entire inside of the controller box: Backup and Retrace This new feature allows you to recover from a Feed-Hold-Retract condition where the tool path must be retraced. Optionally retract the tool and locate it anywhere for tool replacement or maintenance.

By GregThomson on 2 March, – 7: For more complex paths, import paths from your CAD software’s plotter output – then use the Tool Path Editor to snap in tool path direction and ordering – all from a rapid, intuitive, Windows based graphical display.
