We were able to successfully recommission today's machine, a Hardinge VMC Mill with Sinumerik 810D.
The hard drive and power supply on the PCU50 had failed and there were damaged pins on the CCU. In addition to this the backup battery had failed.
The Control CNC engineer was able to resolve all the issues successfully and repair the machine on site. Finally this 18 year old machine was earning its keep again.
With the right maintenance and upkeep it'll be good for another 18 years.
