    I have problem with a Fadal 2013 TRM CNC. We have been using fadal and its components for almost 20 years and We’re very satisfied with your products but
    We’ve some problems in our cnc machine TRM 2013 in recent days.
    The machine gives an #10 motor overload error after 3 seconds of operation even though there is no hall sensor and encoder in our machine
    Can you help with this problem ?

    Re: Need help with your Fadal?

    Sir,

    This alarm has to do with your spindle Hall effect sensor and your spindle pulley magnet. If the control doesn't read the Hall switch in 3 sec, then the control assumes the machine's spindle is not turning. Go into your DI/DS screen and see if the orientation sensor is making or turning to a one when the magnet and switch are in line. Clean the switch and make sure your switch is about .05" above the pulley. Clean your pulley. You will not see the change in the orientation bit by spinning the spindle. It doesn't process the signal fast enough to register when moving. You must identify the magnet in the pulley and line it up with the Hall switch and see if the orientation switch changes to a one.

    If so, check your belts and make sure they are tight and not spinning on the motor pulley. If not, make sure your connectors in the head are clean and tight. Unplug them, clean and plug them back in. If still not working, replace the Hall switch. The part number is ELE-2064 and in stock at FadalCNC.com. Let me know how this turns out and I will continue to help until we nail it.

    Re: Need help with your Fadal?

    Hello, I am a machine tool technology instructor at a high school. I took the job last year at 20k per year pay cut. I’m basically starting scratch my shop was piled chest high in junk. Once I got it cleaned out. I found most the machines were trashed. But a company gave me a 2005 fadal15xt it has a mp controller and is in good shape. I’m here trying to learn more about it. I’ve never ran a fadal mainly haas mazak and centroid. I’m trying to learn some about it while we’re on fall break I don’t know if it’s a 32mp or Cnc88 or 88hs. All I know it’s the mp with out the silver plate around the controller and it has a blue color screen. I desperately need tool holders andto be able to up load via usb. But with a 200 a year budget that can only be spent at office max. I don’t know how I will do it. I have a picture of the controller but that doesn’t tell me if it’s 32 or 88 or HS

    I had a problem with a 4020, I talked to somebody at Fadalcnc asking for advice, I asked twice and gave contact details and was awaiting a call (twice), nobody ever called. And I have spent $'s with you.

    I thought it might have been a PS issue, but turned out to be bad battery, luckily I was able to figure that out myself, although if somebody knowledgeable had returned my calls I might have saved some time. No big deal, I know who to ask now.

    Re: Need help with your Fadal?

    Sir, first of all, thank you so much for your general help.

    I've got a 4-axis Fadal VMC 6030HT. I've been having problems with the 4th axis. If I work with 3-axis, everything is good.

    So I make the program in MasterCAM and it looks ok. But when I send the G-code, the Fadal makes differents actions such us I program to turn clockwise, but it turns counter-clockwise.

    Also I've tried working with other software as SolidWorks, but there's the same problem.

    Some technicians told me that it's a problem with the posprocessor, but I haven't found anyone for this machine.
