Mach3 and G-Rex / Novakon Spindle RPM Issue - Help Needed
« on: February 03, 2011, 07:53:59 AM »
We recently purchased a Novakon NM-200 Series 2 CNC Mill running Mach 3. The mill ran perfectly for about one month, then last week I was making a small fixture using MDI, I drilled one .250" hole in some 6061-T6 and moved to the next hole, typed S1200 M03 and hit enter, the spindle raced up to a very high rpm (something over 6000rpm) and then stopped working. We then started inspecting the machine for damage and noticed the VFD blew off 3 capacitors.
   Since the machine is only 6 weeks old and still under warranty Novakon sent us a new VFD, We then installed it and ran the Spindle Calibration program and saved the new curve. Now when you turn on the spindle in MDI, S500 M03, The spindle races up to a high but unknown RPM, my Machinist ears tell me it is around 6000 rpm or so but the Machine states 500RPM. During the spindle calibration the spindle responded perfectly all the way to it's 6000rpm max.

What could be the issue? Any help will be greatfully appreciated.

Hello All, New to the forum. I was wondering if there are any Mach3 Experts local to Palm Beach County that would be interested in helping to "Fine Tune" a Mach3 running mill at our facility? I apologize if this is not the proper place to post this request.

Thanks in advance,
