Today we have been working on this stunning factory fresh Mach 1062 VMC with Siemens 828D control. Firstly we had to configure it for through spindle coolant after fitting an upgraded encapsulated spindle. We did this using HMI Startup with a field PG to update the topology.
Next we had to configure the machine to run a 4th axis, as the machine uses a Sinamics Combi drive, we had to retro fit an additional Sinamics Booksize module and then modify the topology to accept the new hardware.
After setting home positions, ratios and associated machine datas, the machine was fully function tested, new backups were made and the machine was handed over ready for it’s new owner.
