General Mach Discussion / Emco PC 120 Retrofit.
« on: December 15, 2011, 10:05:29 PM »
Hello all, anyone who can give me some help is greatly appreciated. I purchased an Emco pc120 last December and havn't had much luck getting it running. My problems started wih the original Pc that controls the machine.  I replaced the computer, installed new software from Emco but still just receive multiple errors. Some questions I have about the Mach 3.

1) Will Mach 3 work with the original Emco boards, Motors and controller?  Or do all of these need to be changed to make a retrofit?

2) Does anyone have a list f what is needed for the retrofit and or a supplier?

Thanks for the help. I had hoped that I could get the machine operating with it's original equipment but getting good technical support thru Emco has not been easy.

If anyone has experience with the pc 120 in it's original form I would like to hear from you also.
 Maybe you can tell whats wrong!

Thanks Kurt

The problem I believe is with the actual Computer. I havnt found a replacement for it and wanted to look into Mach 3 before I spend money on a new pc.

Hello, everyone !
I was wondering if anyone would be so kind to give me an approximate cost to convert a Emco 120 to Mach 3. I recently purchased a 120 ( almost 6 months ago) and have had issues with the programs and pc.

Thanks  Kurt

Hello, I hate to start out like this but I am fed up with my Emco 120 ! Ok, since I got that off my chest here we go.  I have an Emco 120 Lathe. I paid $6000.00 for the Lathe that wa ssupposed to be turn key. Eventhough I don't believe that the machinery dealer that I bought this off of misled me on purpose the result is the same. I want to retrofit my 120 to do away with the old computer etc. I would like someone to tell me how much this should cost me, what pc 's will work etc.  If anyone has all of this information wrote down I will gladly pay you for your information.  I have had this machine for 6 months and havnt been able to even turn a spindle.

Thanks Everyone

Kurt
