Need help--or ideas
« on: October 04, 2013, 02:03:44 PM »
Hi all-

I have a nc Amada iron worker that looks like the CPU is bad.    I shipped the CPU to a circuit board repair company in Charlotte NC earlier today.

Now I am looking for options incase the CPU is not fixable.

The iron worker is a simple design.   It has a hydraulic pump and cylinder, several switches, and a x axis stepper motor, and gear rack.

All I have to do is to set the required length, the pitch (number of offsets) and then press the run button.
Once the run button is pressed, the x axis backstop moves to the correct position, I press a foot pedal and the ram presses, then the x axis moves to the next position.   Then everything repeats.

There is also a turntable that rotates to different dies.   But this is a simple motor contactor.

Any ideas on where to start?

I have built a CNC flame cutter, so I am not new to this.   Just need advice.    I need this for my business.
