    MachMotion Questions

    Hello everyone,
    This is my first post and hope it is in the right area.
    I have a Ex-Cell-O mill with an Anilam Crusader M controll that is starting to give me some trouble. Working with Jerry at Anilam narrowed it down to some component getting hot on the black or orange boards. Going to try to get more air inside the box but I think i'm just delaying the enviable, replacing the controller.
    Looking at a Mach Motion controller and was wondering if any of you have experience with their equipement and company? How is their support and tech
    help? Talking with their tech he feels that the new board they have will allow me to keep the scales and the existing servos, drives.
    Looking at the forums the Mach3 software they use will be fine for my needs
    as i am mostly trying to eliminate digging out the rotary table.
    I know that i cound get the software, buy the components and put a system
    together for less than the Mach Motion control but when you figure the time it would take(that i don't have) the cost looks good.
    Any feedback or other suggestions are appreciated.


    Thanks

    Any luck with this project? I'm looking to do the same thing with my Anilam 1100M. I bought a complete package(servos and drives and breakout board) from DMM Technologies for another machine to convert to Mach 3 but don't want to use it on this machine because of the expense of the servos etc. I'm hoping to use the servo motors that are connected to the Anilam control so I can save some money. If there's anybody out there that has taken those servos and power supplies and just changed out the breakout board and computer I would appreciate the input/help.

    I have done this a few times. You only need a motion controller that will output the +/- 10V analog command signal to the drives. Mesa, Dynomotion, and Galil products are just a few that will do this, there are others also.
