A very busy day today replacing a 2x15A drive on an XYZ Minimill 560 with Siemens 802D control after the X axis failed with a drive fault. The next task was to overcome a software glitch on another XYZ, this time a 710VMC with Siemens 828D control. After reloading a fresh NC archive, this resolved the issue caused by a corrupt file which we suspect occurred after a power cut.
Finally another XYZ, this time a CT52 Turning centre / Lathe with a sticky Cycle Start button. An easy fix by stripping down control panel, removing and re-soldering a replacement surface mount push button onto the PCB and reassembling the control panel, much cheaper than replacing the entire control panel!
