TOE80 Turret Problem

The turret on my Cyclone would very occasionally not tool change, but was fine if turned off and on again. This morning it has started doing other strange things, It will spin past the tool it is indexing too then do an extra rotation before stopping on it. Sometimes it will immediately move to the ...

Re: 1997 Triac VMC with BT30 ATC and Fanuc O-M control for Sale

The machine is located in Weymouth, Dorset but I can put on a pallet for delivery.

Casting spares or engineering drawings?

Hi, a part just came out of the chuck and the dovetail has broken off the x axis nearest the chuck and ballscrew has bent. Ballscrew should be easy to replace but casting trickier. Don't suppose denford would have any spares lying around, or failing that an engineering drawing of this part so that I...

Z Axis Backlash/play

The Z axis of the cyclone has a couple of thou backlash until very recently. Not I can push and pull the tool turret 0.4-0.5mm, I am pulling from the base as close to the ballscrew as I can get so guessing that it is either worn ballscrew or the bearings. Seems to have coincided with me taking off t...

Re: New ATC Fault

The tool carousel rotates using the manual button, but not with the M32/M33 codes in mdi or within a program although i am not sure if they ever worked. I know that the [M34] Rotate Carousel Half Turn has never worked.

My triac has stopped tool changing, the carousel drops down and moves to position under spindle then stops, eventually it times out. I have cleaned all the limit switches with contact cleaner and check that their corresponding diagnostic bits flash when pressed and when toolchanging. Bit stumped as ...

Re: ATC fault

Update, this is sorted now. You were right Martin, after much head scratching I decided to strip back the outer on the bend in the cable, inside one if the wire had broken.
This was causing the intermittent fault that was so confusing! Replaced the cable and it now works.
