Boxford VMC190 Conversion Information Wanted
« on: October 28, 2006, 05:57:43 AM »
Hi All,

I have been offered a Boxford VMC190 mill and was wondering if anybody has converted one to Mach3.

The price is right and the machine runs now but as usual with these there is no software.

The machine is complete with a tool changer and coolant mist system,  my main concern is how I get all the I/O for the tool changer.  It looks to need at least 10 inputs and 8 outputs.

Writing some VB is not a problem, its the electronic hardware side I am not too sure about.

Can I use the original spindle drive unit.

Any drawings and hardware recommendations would be very helpful.

Thanks

Graham.
