    Re: Bridgeport CNC Series II Boss 6 is Dead!

    If you have no display, I would check the output of the logic power supply. Also make sure all boards are seated correctly and facing in the same direction.
    The display board is very static...

    Re: BridgePort VMC800 Spindle Orient Issue

    Have you looked at the marker pulse? It occurs once per revolution. It starts the counting process for orient.
    Next, what is the drift? Command a S0M3. The drift should be less than 4 RPM.
  4. MagneTek 505 EZPATH2 spindle drive parameters

    Happy new year to all. The tables have turned and I need help. The first few EZPATH2 lathes had the Magnetek spindle drives. The later ones had Yaskawa. I have had a Magnetek logic board fry and it...
  5. Re: Bridgeport Explorer I Hard drive Software HELP Needed!

    You can get the software from EMI. If you have purchased a hard drive, you will have to FDISK it to 504MB, format, load DOS, and then the machine software. You may want to consider a Disk on a Module.

    Re: 4th Axis on a Bridgeport EZ Trak DXII

    The software will not support it. Do you need a true 4th axis or will a programmable indexer do?

    Re: help getting started old bridgeport cnc

    The Apollo was actually built for the military. It was a Interact 4 with a DX32 control. Different from the V2XT as it had a Electronic spindle drive, a power draw bar, etc. Try machinemanuals.com or...

    Re: EZ path boot disk

    The format disk has to be a boot disk. It contains command.com and 2 hidden files which make it bootable.

    Re: Roni Centur 35E Stuck in Feed Hold

    Will it do rapid moves?
    Does it not do feed moves?
    Does it show a spindle speed? correctly? Usually if a spindle speed differs from command by 20 percent or more, it will not feed.
  14. Re: Power Path 15 Threading Help - Bad thread form

    Also start at least .2 inches in front of the part so the carraige settles in.
  15. Re: Fixed BMDC Error, now have overactive feed error. Help needed.

    We have started installing the USB floppy emulators. We get ours from EMI. They provide the software and a thumb drive. If yours was purchased from EMI, they may give you a copy. These are also...
  16. Re: Bridgeport EZPath SD No BMDC Desktop I have Disks, forgot what to load

    This means the BMDC did not load. Because you have the S version, I know it has a Control in a box with a half size all in one mother board. This may have a daughter board for mass memory, or a disk...
  17. Re: TLO Tool Offsets Zeroed and Fixture Offsets Lost on Power Down DX-32 Torq-Cut 30

    As with any PC, do a scandisk and a defrag. I believe you have either a corrupted file or possibly a corruption of the CMOS telling the control how to read the mass memory device (hard drive, DOM)...

    Re: VMC 760/22 toolchanger problem

    The relays on the TLAUF or LCTLAUF are solid state and typically leak or short. They are the row of black devices maybe 1/4 inch by 1 inch by 2 inch.
    I have seen the arm back short and thus the arm...

    Re: V2XT DX32 y Overflow

    A Y overflow is that the control sent a command and expected to see a move and did not see a move.
    If it indeed did move and it was not seen, it would indicate a bad position loop (encoder, cable,...

    Re: Discovery 308 speed control

    It depends on the version of software. Could be arrow up/down, or +/- keys.
  21. Re: Boss8 Series II Y Axis grows after warm-up?

    The ball screw is NOT in tension (between 2 sets of bearings). Thus due to heat, it will grow. It only has a precision bearing on one end. Work produces heat. The way oil is used to reduce friction...

    Re: Discovery 308 speed control

    DX-32 control? It has a spindle drive. Look for STM. Input a Speed, just press enter to skip T, and a M3. You may have to press start. You need a operating manual.
  23. Re: Bridgeport INTERACT I Mk2 TNC 150 lost parametres

    Switches are not an exact way to home a machine. Thus the control looks for the home switch, and then looks for the marker pulse on the encoder. This marker pulse occurs typically once per revolution...
