Re: [rp-ml] Independent method of machine feed rate verification?

My Uncle works for Austin NC (AKA Intercim) writing posts to drive various equipment. This is his response to your question:
Our post processor does this. The only time the set feed rate is not the actual machine speed is when the machine is making a circular move. When our post calculates cycle times it figures out the actual feed rate by computing the true radial feed rate based on the radius of the circular move.
I hope this helps...

Best regards,

Dear rp-ml:
Here's a good one for you - has anyone looked into a method of independently verifying actual feed rates on a machning center?
Not a CNC program simulation verification like using Vericut but verifying feed rates real time on the machine. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
