    Re: Using individual PSUs for each driver

    I'm with you on this there should only be one Power supply, there is no electrical reason to use more than (1) power supply, there is a reason why they do this though, and it is cost (3) lower watt...

  3. Re: Another DIY CNC Machine Project… - Looking for some advice

    You need a Snubber with any Relay Coil / Contactor Coil Switching or something in the circuit will burn up. some Relays have built in Snubber's you would have to check the specs of what you are...
  4. Re: CNC Gantry Build. The $1 mistake that started it all.

    Correct if it was anodized first it would be fine, and we don't really know what there mix is, they may have epoxy coated the aluminum before casting also

    One thing I missed is the coolant drains...

    Re: connect bob to vfd

    Did you check the Kernel speed if this is too low you will get this message look in Ports / Pins Tab

  8. Re: CNC Gantry Build. The $1 mistake that started it all.

    The base pour looks good, the rail mounting and the base supporting structure not so good, being a small machine, it most likely won't matter too much, the general concept is good that anyone could...
  9. Re: Simple question on those cheap belt drive BT40 spindles

    Yes, you would use a manual draw bar, make sure, if you get one of these spindles, that it has the Angular Contact Bearings at the front of the spindle some just have a regular deep grove Ball Bearing

    Re: connect bob to vfd

    You can never run or even command a speed lower than the set parameter 120Hz 7200RPM if the spindle run then you do not have the Parameters set correct in the VFD Drive

    Disconnect the 0-10v and...
  12. Re: Ae-200 vfd problem mach3 rpm doesn't match with vfd

    If your Breakout Board requires 12v that would be normal, the PWM to Analog spindle speed control can only be 0-10v
  13. Re: Z axis gaining spindle problem motor gets hot. Newbie into cnc

    In Mach3 look at Ports/Pin Spindle setup tab PWM setting it should be 100

    Check the Config Tab in Mach3 under spindle Pulley Ratio 0----24000-----1 you may have to adjust this to get the right...
  14. Re: CNC Gantry Build. The $1 mistake that started it all.

    Don't forget the Ballscrew and motor mounting the part you have is easy mounting Ballscrews is just as important as Rails

    Re: Fanuc AC Servo Motor schould it turn ?

    Check for a Brake most Z axes have a Brake on the motor or the Ballscrew most are on the motor, the Brake has to release when the servo motor powers up, if this is not releasing the motor will fault...

  21. Re: Z axis gaining spindle problem motor gets hot. Newbie into cnc

    Normally the steppers don't need a shielded cable, only the VFD Drive to spindle
