Our customer was considering scrapping this 21 year old XYZ Vulcan with Siemens 810D control when the CCU1 failed to boot after being turned off for a long period of time.
After a site visit and assessment the faulty (now obsolete) CCU1 was removed and repaired offline by us.
We then returned to site, refitted it along with a new backup battery and reloaded the NC and PLC.
It was then fully function tested and the machine was back producing within 1 hour of us returning to site.
A common fault with a CCU’s is they will fail to boot and display 8, this more often than not means they are essentially ‘dead’ however quite often we can repair them.
Given that refurbished units can sell for up to £8000 ours is definitely the cheaper option!
