Riser block

Post by mandor2013 » Sun 04 Oct , 2015 19:23 pm

I have a Triac PC made in 2002 with easy change tool holders. It is an excellent machine but I find lack of Z height a frequent problem. Has anyone fitted a riser block on one of these machines or could offer advice on fitting a riser block? Is there any diagrams available showing the fixing of the column to the base?

I did some years ago, sure I posted it on here. Search my posts.

without measuring, I think it was 50mm I added without having to remake cables, I can't remember how I lifted the column in place but it wasn't difficult.

Here is the link to TriacWhizz's post...

Did the machine manage to find the tool carousel height on its own or did you have to tell it the offset?

Edit... Just had a look, obviously the he carousel is attached to the head so no calibration needed.

Would anyone happen to have drawings for the riser block?

Cheers
