Hi It sounds as if you need to set the 450 Diagnostics on the Fanuc. These set the Denford Options. If you can supply the machine serial number I will have a look for the record sheet for your machine. It may be worth looking in the original paperwork if you still have it. Someone may have taken a c...

Versa Laser stops working & software hangs up

I have come accros a problem when vector engraving (blue) from TechSoft2D Ver1.25 After a period of time the axis & beam stop part way through a operation. The VersaLaser software then hangs & the computer needs to be turned off & on to regain operation. I copied the design from 2D design & pasted i...

Yon may also need to check the focus height. This can be done by using the manual focus tool as described in the VersaLaser manual.

The VersaLaser printer needs to be set to "print directly to printer" & not as default, Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster.

It can be found in the VL300 or VL200 printer propeties under the Advanced tab.

I think that some of these replys relate to other Control types that Denford fitted. The M27 only works on the later machines. The machine Pab has is fitted with a NEE PNC3 control system. I am sure that when we powered one up that we only had to set the Dip switches in order to set it up. The toolc...

Hi Bob,

Sounds like it may be easier to coppy the licence disc manually.


You need to open the text file on the licence disc then coppy the text & paste it into the VRTurning.ini file.

The PNC3 Triac used spindle orientation when performing tool changes, & therefore has a "v" on the top of the bar to assist with alignment. In the UK we now remove all the drive dogs from the spindle nose & ATC arm. Then the inverted "v" attached to the Brower unit can be removed. The circular block...

Draw Bar

Hi Pab,

What is wrong with your DRAW BAR???
Have you managed to remove it.

You may be able to reuse the original draw bar

Triac Drawbar

Hi Pab, It sounds like you now need to strip the spindle down to investigate further. To do this you need to remove the brower unit from the top of the spindle. You will then see a nut/collar inside the top of the spindle which you need to unsrew. There may be a grub screw locking it in position. Be...

Hiya Pab. It sounds like the stoke of the cylinder is too short. You will need to check the level of oil inside the brower unit. In order to look you need to remove the top silver cap off the unit. There is a area just below where the air pipe plugs in that you can get a spanner on & unscrew it. Ins...

I guess your Triac will have a V slot on the bottom of the cylinder & a V on the top of the draw bar.

It uses the V to line up exactly.
It is more likely that the V on the top of the draw bar is worn.

I would imagine that srewing the cylinder down will fix your problem.

It may be something as simple as the pnuematic pressure to the cylinder or the oil level insider the cylinder. The air pressure needs to be between 80-100psi depending on when the machine was built. I would suggest that you set it at 100psi. The oil level in the cylinder is a bit more tricky, but a ...

Hiya, You have not said what machine you have & if it has a automatic toolchanger.

Does the collet have a Number on it?

Zerocentre

The best way to tell the actual speed is to measure directly from the spindle using a tachometer.

It appears that E-Bay has lots of digital tachometers for around £20.

Good luck.

Re: Denford ZeroCentre Max rpm

On the Zerocentre we never used\set the gear ratio on the spindle pulleys. ONLY PARAMETER 540 WAS SET. It may be that you need to set the speeds up as Andy is saying if you want to use the second ratio.
If you change to the other ratio then I guess you need to set Parameter 540 to the new speed.
