    Unhappy Hurco VM1 Fault

    We have a Hurco VM1 and over the past few days we've had problems. It will just stop machining and bring up a x axis or a z axis fault while the light will turn itself off and on. Also you can hear clicking at the back of the machine... Then after around 10-15 mins of doing this it is fine again! Is something on its way out maybe or coolant into electrics???

    Any ideas anyone?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    when you say the light is turning of and on, are you talking about the work light? and you get either a x or z axis following error? Sounds like it could be low voltage on the machine check the power supply test points. The 5 volt rail must be above 5 volts. what year is your machine?

    Usually something like this could be 5V power or limit switch cabel.. Does it give fault in similar situation or random?

    Re-seat the DCI/O card(s) and the I/O interface card. Also check the power cable to the DCI/O backplane card is clean and well seated.

    X-Axis and Z-Axis Fault

    Can you please provide the model numbers for the X and Z Axis drives? Also, watch the drives as this is occurring and record any displays/faults that occur. This will most likely tell us what is causing the problem
