Rotary table support

Hi Gurus,

Couple of questions:
Does Pro/ENGINEER Production Machining Option ( which is for 3 axis milling)
support rotary table movement?
Also does anyone have a postprocessor for Fanuc 18M & 21M? Is Fanuc 21M used
for 5-axis machining?

TIA,

Niloy,



To answer your 2 questions: Does Pro/ENGINEER Production Machining Option (
which is for 3 axis milling) support rotary table movement?

It supports up to 4 and 5 axis positioning only milling (not simultaneous
milling) and 2-axis turning.



Also does anyone have a postprocessor for Fanuc 18M & 21M? Is Fanuc 21M used
for 5-axis machining?

Yes, I have several posts, but you really have to know more than the
control. I can give you a really good deal creating them for you. I do
this for a living and will beat anyone's price to get you setup with post
processors.



Sincerely,

Hi,

Thanks to all those who replied. What I have understood is that PMO supports
4 & 5 axis positioning motions. But simultaneous rotation & machining is not
possible.
To further give clarity to my question I have attached an image of the part
to be machined.
My client is buying a Horizontal Machining Center which will be used to
machine a cylindrical barrel positioned vertically. There are 12 holes
patterned on the circumference of the barrel and there are 3 such patterns
along the length/height of the barrel. I hope I have been able to make
myself clear! Will PMO suffice or should they go for CMO in order to machine
this sort of part?

TIA,

Niloy Guha
