I would have to talk to my boss, but if the price is right, everything is possible...

I'm still in the planning phase, I have a lot of other issues to solve before I can start rebuilding the machine.

Hi adro.22,

I am currently busy with other stuff. I plan to start on converting it in a couple of months.

I think I will go with the G320X drives from Gecko.

If the GCODE is written in roman number, you know it is old   ;D ;D ;D ;D

I haven't actually seen any GCODE on that system, I wouldn't be surprised if it uses something else to drive it.

Quick look and it would seem your machine uses DC servos and analogue amplifiers (drives) so its not just a case of hooking up Mach. Easiest and cheapest rout would likely be to get new drives that accept Step/Dir input. Which drives would be suitable will depend on the current and voltage of these motors.

The machine uses drives from ELMO, SSA-8/100 to be exact. Only info, I managed to dig up was that it's current limit is 8A and DC supply is 20-100VDC.
Can someone help me find a good replacement drive using this data?
If it helps, here is a link for the manual http://www.elmomc.com/support/manuals/MAN_SSA_UG_EN_0698.pdf

To find any info about the servos, I need to take apart my machine. That is something I would rather not do at this point.

I was afraid of something like that coming up in the process. I have some thinking to do now.
