Update Mach4 without internet to control
To update Mach4 software without internet to the control you can do so by completing the following procedures. Please note that it is highly recommended that you have internet to the control instead and let one of our support techs help with this. There can be...
HiCON Board Not Found
The hicon board is the "daughter" board of the Apollo III motion controller. The ethernet cable from the control PC to the HiCON board is the local area network (LAN) connection for it and communications between the 2 were lost. 1. bad cable, or connection at...
Parts not Round (TECO Drives)
When the X and Y on a machine are not round yet the units are correct and the axes are square, make sure to match the gains in the Teco drives.The servo drive parameters may be mismatched: You may only need to change one of these, but this is the order of pri...

Mach uses the ZeroBrane Studio for debugging Lua scripts and MCodes
This Chapter will lay out exactly what is required to make each outlined system function.
Setup Gears in Mach4
Setup gears If you do not know the gear ratio on the spindle, setup the spindle as follows: Set a very high max RPM for the range (such as 50,000) Turn on spindle at the max spindle speed defined above Read RPM using spindle encoder or tachometer Need...
G73 / G83 Peck Drilling Reposition Location - Mach4
Symptoms The control descends too far on a rapid reposition and breaks drill bits. High-speed peck drilling needs a different retract distance than the system default. Solution Mach4 has two machine parameters that affect the reposition behavior with r...
