That was a...

Posted 08/07/2012 at 01:28 PM by precmarinesys

good time. Brian and I got here early and had at it. Those machine can be temperamental at times. After adjusting the voltage regulator to the keypad (which we do regularly). The regulator is inside a heavy-duty metal cabinet at the end of the vacuum table. There's a motherboard that is 3' x 2' in there. It runs off of 240v three-phase. It's stout. At any rate, after removing the spindle, bearing cars, cleaning everything, replacing the proximity switch (just for fun), we reassembled it. We also troubleshot the card that holds the flash software that runs each axis. The keypad was not responding to the input which controls the Z axis. After removing all of the wires that do into the card and cleaning them with contact cleaner....boom, works like the beast that it is. Glad that's over. Guys have to work late to make up for lost productivity and meet deadlines.

Attached is the workstation for CAD/CAM work, tool-pathing and file output.
