Testing new Machdrives servo drives
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:10:00 PM »

I replaced my ServoDynamics drives (from 1989) with Machdrives
I went with Machdrives because my servo motors are 110VDC and they could handle the voltage.  This machine has a 500 pound table.  It doesn't look that big in the video, but the entire knee mill is over 5,000 pounds (a Bridgeport is about 1,800).  It is running at 60 ipm.  Rapids are 300 ipm.  When the machine was new it had an Allen Bradley control system that was limited to 100 ipm rapids and 50K of program size.  But it did have a cassette tape option!
