Re: good old TRIAC stopped working

Hello Oded !!

I have this same machine, just the color is different.
I plan on converting my machine to PathPilot and servos.
I cannot tell from your picture where the damage is located, can you point it out?
You should move your post to the Machines Triac section.

Re: NovaTurn Turret Parts etc.

There is one for the Orac on Ebay, from what I have seen the Novaturn went from a single to dual pawl on the locking mech. My Starturn 5 looks to be the same as the orac unit. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Denford-Orac-Auto-Toolpost/323220743229?hash=item4b4175243d:g:dbcAAOSw42ta3Lbq Thanks, but I am ...

NovaTurn Turret Parts etc.

TO: Denford

Are there any other drawings and photos available, of the NovaTurn Turret, that show the shafts and locking mechanism?

In addition, have any more spare parts become available?

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Hi all. I am still looking for a turret for the NovaTurn. I am in the process of adapting a EMCO turret. In addition I am looking at having the NovaTurn Turret manufactured from the drawings with changes. The changes will include a AC servo and absolute encoder. I have been very busy on other projec...

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Mitip the Yaskawa 100W servos I used were almost a perfect fit. I only needed to make new motor plates. If you want to use Mach 3 then you will need servo drives that use step-direction. I am using a complete closed loop system. My servo drives take +-10V analog with encoder feed back to Linuxcnc / ...

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Pete, toby1995. I can put together cost information. Just let me know if you want to go stepper or servo system. A lot of the cost depends on what you use. For example new servos and drivers can be had on ebay, but it can take some time searching. I am debating on providing a system that would inclu...

Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Denford NovaTurn refit with AC servos.
1/4 20 thread test with sample parts.

Three (3) phase power is not needed. I am using dual power from 220v and 115v standard.
