    The air solenoids will only be for the taper blast and the tool changer and should not be leaking any where unless it has air to clear the front bearing seal which can run all the time

    You have 2 air connections up top on the side of the spindle ( 1 ) is for the Tool Changer and ( 1 ) for the air blast to clean the Taper, if the air is running all the time on the Taper Blast then you have a problem with the solenoids, as this should shut off before a tool goes back in

    The air is only coming down from the taper.

    Ok that sounds correct for the fan, it will either start and stop with the spindle or be on a timer for cool down, then you have to see why the tool blast coming on, you could have a programing problem also

    That will tell the spindle to stop because of a Tool Change, something may have been connected incorrect with the solenoids tubes Etc or what is happening in the control

    Can you put a tool in the spindle by hand with Manual control , ( put a piece of wood on you table just in case it drops the tool out )

    Re: AXYZ 4008 Spindle not starting

    If you don't have a manual with a list of error codes you will need to speak to a technician and describe exactly what the display shows.I would be fairly sure the reason the spindle just turns briefly is related to that message.

    As far as the air is concerned, you can test the operation of the toolholder by powering up the machine and with one hand below the toolholder to catch it, press the green button on the side of the plate displaying the technical details of the spindle.This should activate the solenoid and release the toolholder.Expect air to continue trickling out when you release the button too-it continuously does this.To replace the toolholder you again press the green button and lift the toolholder into place-release the button and it should be retained.Air pressure too low or too high may cause problems 90 to 110 psi is the right sort of range as I recall.

    Did the machine come with any of the following-manuals,vacuum table,tool length sensor,tool changer?

    Re: AXYZ 4008 Spindle not starting

    Thanks for your reply. I have done those checks on the tool release and it all works fine. I have all the manuals, tool changer and vacuum bed .
    Today I managed to get it to run the F function to start the spindle manually and it started up the cooling fan and it made the spindle have some resistance when turning it by hand (Normally the spindle has no resistance). However the spindle still did not start turning.

    The Fault code could be a wiring problem, did you wire this or was it done in the factory, Don't keep trying it until you check the wiring it could be missing a Phase

    What is your input power supply
