HOT WEATHER affecting your CMC calibration?

Postby Bagpuss » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:30 pm

Has anyone noticed slight dimensional inaccuracy on their CMCs in this hot weather ? I cut some mounts today and an external measurement of 100 x 72 cm came in at approx. 99.8 x 71.8cm, I've only had the CMC a year so assume that I need to recalibrate in the hot weather.... perhaps?

Hi Adam. Think it unlikely to be the weather! Call me in the morning. It's a minor calibration issue

why delete - it was a good question - with a great answer!!!

I must admit I began wondering about expansion & contraction rates - due to temperature & relative humidity - with all kinds of framing materials & equipment...

...then I thought - get over it Steve - it won't be a problem again for at least "another" 36 years - by which time I will hopefully have retired :D

Great customer service from Sarah though - she is a ture professional :clap: :clap: :clap:
It's not a secret - I work for Wessex Pictures & I'm here to help!!! you can email me at steveg@wessexpictures.com or call me on 07585 138566

on the subject mis-diagnosing things on CMCs, you'll like this one.
I was cutting a sheet of oval mats in an array, and the head jammed at exactly the same point on three sheets of board.
Thursday night onto Sam at Wizard, "think it needs a new head it keeps jamming up at exactly the same point...".....

went home, came in on friday fresh, realised it was always at 24cm from the head's start/home position.
Then spotted this "useful size" cardboard box my colleague had left on a shelf behind where the head stops, this box is 24 cm long..... yup, that was what the gantry was hitting on the way back....

talk about feeling stupid :-/
