    Re: VF-2SS 2011 Alarm 105 at startup?

    That does not mean that the drive is ok, you are only testing the high voltage side, and this is normally ok on most of these drives, it the low voltage side that fails most of the time, which if you...

  5. Re: Spindle warm up routine - with or without toolholder or tool

    Yes, that is a good idea when a spindle is shut down after a long High speed run the grease will move, so after a long shut down that would be good practice to do a normal warm-up, up to the RPM...

    When doing the first warmup / run-in, you should not have a tool in the spindle, after the spindle is run-in, there should be not need, to have a warmup for your type of Grease filled Bearing...

    Re: Designing a new router called Brevis-HD

    The AC VFD Drive Spindles don't have this problem, and those that have them setup correct, have been using them for years, Bearings can be replaced which is what normally fails

    Re: Designing a new router called Brevis-HD

    Thats a big cutter to use with that spindle, they are just an electric motor with an ER chuck on them, so not really designed to be a spindle, to have a side loading with a big cutter, it has lasted...

    That main supply would be fine, just check the all the Phases are close to the same, check the Transformer has been set up for your voltage and the Bus Voltage must be checked

    No, you should not...

    You are dealing with the Bus Voltage this is the only safety issues you are likely to have, as I posted you can't clear the alarm, until the servo Drive is replaced, and all the voltages checked that...

    Re: VF-2SS 2011 Alarm 105 at startup?

    The spindle can't come crashing down, so not sure why this is of any concern, the servo motor has a brake so it can't move until power has released the brake, which is a 24vdc to the servo motor, if...

    Re: VF-2SS 2011 Alarm 105 at startup?

    If the Brake is engaged there would be no need for a block under the spindle, is the Zaxis in a clear area above the table if so nothing to worry about as the spindle can never go low enough to hit...
  18. Re: Investment Cast or CNC Machined Aluminum Parts

    Investment casting does not require a mold you just need a wax model of the part which can be 3D printed or machined, plating is not a problem anything can be plated you can process aluminum more...
  19. Re: Investment Cast or CNC Machined Aluminum Parts

    For just 2 parts you might want to look at 3D printed, unless it has to be a solid metal part.

    There is no risk, what did you need to use the 120v receptacles for, this would determine the amperage of the circuit

    Re: 110 outlet on cnc

    120v is correct for NA not 110v, your best is to see what each machine has already, most machines have a Transformer that may have a 120v tap that could be used, if not a dedicated 120v line with a...
