Wanted - Triac with BT30 ATC - NOT Fanuc control

The title says it all really but here goes anyway.

I am looking to buy a Triac with a BT30 tool changer and any control except the Fanuc ones (way to expensive if things fail) any condition any age considered.

Thanks
I await all your offers.

Regards
Graham

Re: TU150U in need of TLC

Things have moved on a bit in the last few weeks. The spindle cooling fan was duff so a new fan and mounting had to be made. The spindle is now running sweet up to about 4800rpm but I have restricted it to 3500 which is the max for my chuck. Axis motors are in and tuned to 15000mm/min rapid. Turret ...

Re: TU150U in need of TLC

I can not believe what a mess this machine is in, what ever has been cut in it has turned the coolant to acid and stripped the paint off it just like Nitromors would. Everything is covered in a thick paste like gloop that stinks and sticks like s..t to a blanket. The chap I got it from said he had b...

Re: TU150U in need of TLC

Well its looking like a duff Mint card, as soon as the machine becomes ready the mint sends out a voltage on the analogue and off it sets at rapid in X and at creep in Z.

Anybody have an old Mint card they don't want?

If not Mach4 here we come!

Thanks

Re: TU150U in need of TLC

Pete,

as soon as the control screen was displayed the x axis set off and hit the end stop toward the home position, the z was also creeping toward the chuck away from home.

Martin, Thank you I will give it a go but they look almost the same as what is in it at the moment.

Hi All I am back again. Things have moved on a bit, I downloaded the files Martin suggested and created a DOS boot disk with it all on and it powered up and the X axis shot to the max and jammed there with a jolt, the z crept forward toward the chuck. Estop put a stop to its fun. My question, is thi...

Hi again,
