General Mach Discussion / Setting up a second machine
« on: October 31, 2008, 01:24:49 PM »
I've been trying to set up a cnc lathe running the mach3 program and have run into a problem. I can't seem to find where to tune the motors for the second machine. I've been running Mach 3 for two years on a Taig mill using stepper motors and a xylotex drive system. The new system uses servo motors and Phelps argon servo drives. Are the motor tuning settings for Mach3 global or is there a way to tune the second set of motors separately?

Hello all. I've been running Mach for almost two years now on a Taig mill and I love it. I recently decided to attempt a build for a small, high precision lathe using Kollmorgen ServoDisc motors. The motors are equipped with a tach and an encoder currently. They are low torque motors which is acceptable for the setup. My question is: will a basic L298 based driver work with this setup or will a feedback loop be necessary on the servo driver?
