Messages - Meccanica Cortini

Pages: 1
Here is what happened so far...

Machine: Meccanica Cortini C3 with Cortini 2437 controller and Zebotronics driver and motors made back in 86.
I bought the machine 3 years ago and used it in it original setup.
Was a strong and consistant workhorse.

The memory board finally gave up rendering the machine useless for production.
I decided to go with Mach and Gecko with 950oz NEMA34 stepper motors.


I've got this nice little mill that I converted to modern controller/driver/stepper setup.
After wiring it all up, everything moves the way it should.

Listen to the stepper motors as the program mills a circle tho, sounds like a car shifting 1,2,3 when acc/decc at the quadrants of the circle.
I can't get friendly with it... the transmission is toothed-belt. Can anybody hear something I should double check on ?


Thanks for any suggestions.

I'll post some more pictures of the setup when I get out of the shop  :)


Gottcha !

Thanks Brett !

I can't seem to access the 'known Bugs' thread from my pc here so i ask :

Sometimes the software starts with the 'gray/red Artsoft' image and most of the time it opens with the 'white background with indexable cutters' image.

I always open with my profile icon

Bug ?
...or something I need to dig deeper ?

thanks  :)
