Learning Biesse CNC on the job1/17/21
Hey, im a cabinet making apprentice but our CNC operator has left without notice forcing me to try and learn our Biesse Rover S FT without proper training.
We make fitted furniture and luckily he made nearly every article I would need parametric before leaving so making kitchen programs in bNest and running them isn't an issue, however that's about the extent of my knowledge.
The current issues I'm facing the most and would love help in understanding are:
When routing out pieces from a sheet, my CNC board is also getting cut into, creating lots of dust and vacuum issues. Do I just have to raise my jig thickness manually even above my bed skim height?
Also, how do I go about editing the position of pieces on sheets after they have been nested, I have issues with there being small pieces that once routed out won't vacuum down and are very close to getting caught in the machine and damaging something, I watched our old operator edit the position of pieces in a sheet to minimize waste and small pieces, but I never learned how to do it.
If anyone could please help or point me in the right direction i'd appreciate it!
Do you have his number? Has he left with complete discontempt? Can you call him and have a sit or a meet to pick his brain? Is he on persona no grata and cant come in to the shop for a quick up-to-speed?
If he was nice enough to make as much as you say accessible he may not be a slam the door nasty. Worth a try.
We're in Ireland, he went back to England for christmas and can't get back in to the country over covid. He didn't return a single call or text for like 10 days now so I've been told to learn it.
I just really want to figure these 2 main issues out first or as fast as possible.
There is a biesse user forum on Facebook and lots of UK/European users, I'm sure one could be local and give you a hand onsite or via. phone call. Also try tech support. They can team view in and walk you through the details.
