« on: January 11, 2012, 10:26:28 PM »
 ???   I have a large 12000 lb cnc mill i am starting to retrofit . st arrting with galil 1842 rev h ,icm 2900 ,contec p10-16/16t
(pci)  and Win/xp computer. machine has yaskawa spindle drive vs616gII , servo dynamics's sd360 drives ,indramat servoIIc motors and drc encoders .im wondering how much of a project to get this running. i have servos ,motors,limit swt and home switchs hooked to icm 2900.i dont know how much programming to galil or mach programming is necessary.
  I have been in cnc operator/programming /engineering for 40 yr. and had my own cnc shop with 5 cnc for 16 yr,repair my own machines down to replacing part/boards. done some basic and fanuc varb prgms. not sure i can handle some of what ive read here  in this form though. can you give me any help. is this a easier way to proceed or would camsoft be an easier or better option.

Im retrofitting milltronics partner 7 , using original servo drives,and spindle drive , using galil dmc1842 ,icm2900 opto ,my first question estop is in line with overtravel switchs , it originally shut down the drive power,coolant  and spindle. is this the direction i should follow. originally bought camsoft package but they want 1500.00 for license fees to give help since i left this project set for 2 yr. now i think about using mach3 to control galil 1842 directly or through icm2900.
can anyone give me some direction to begin. thankyou john ??? ??? ???
