tapping

I need a procedure on how to use the tapping feature properly on the HBM 110

  1. Melvin,

    Tapping is done with the spindle being in low range and with the saddle. Make sure that you use a “floating tap-holder”. First determine the correct spindle speed to use with your tap. Then take the RPM times the pitch of your tap to set the feed-rate. Ex. 75RPM X .100 (10TPI) = 7.5 IPM. Set the switch to tapping and use the W Axis joy-stick to engage the cycle, make sure the spindle in rotating correctly. Look at the feed-rate display on the DRO to adjust the feed-rate. The direction of the w axis joystick will start and reverse the spindle.

    If you have any question please feel free to call me.
