Wiring connections to power the machine must be made before the Levelling Procedure can be followed. It is required that the machine be anchored in place for best and most consistent results while in use. The anchoring bolts (in accordance with the anchoring instructions) should be installed prior to the machine being set in place.
The installation process will be further aided if, when each base assembly is set in place, a very rough leveling procedure be done. The theoretical distance from the floor to the bottom of the two bases is 4 inches. The use of a machinist scale or small gauge blocks will expedite the process. While all leveling screws and leveling pads are in place measure from the floor to the bottom of each base until the distance is very close to the 4 inch height. This will accomplish two things: First, that the machine is set to the proper height to receive the coolant tank/Conveyor and, second, that the machine will be very much closer to level than without having done this procedure.
The installation procedure will necessarily follow the general outline below (a more detailed explanation follows). Depending on the available space and equipment it may be simpler to place the column base assembly before the table base assembly. Regardless of which assembly is placed first, the concepts of the general outline need to be adhered to:
Note: (**) Depending on the available space and equipment it may be simpler to relocate the tool changer assembly before moving the Column Base into the facility
For ease of removal, first use a plastic scraper to remove most of the rust inhibitor and then use WD-40 or another PH neutral degreaser to spray all the way covers and other non-painted surfaces that have been coated with rust inhibitor. Let it soak for a few minutes before removing it. Then use shop towels to remove it. For thick applications of rust inhibitor use a plastic scraper to remove it.
Important: Do not use scotch-brite or metal scrapers, these will scratch the way covers. Furthermore, to avoid any contamination of the way cover seals with the sticky residue. Do not move any of the axes until all the rust inhibitor has been removed.
Danger: WORKING WITH ELECTRICAL SERVICES REQUIRED FOR A CNC ARE EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS. ALL POWER TO CNC MUST BE TURNED OFF LOCKOUT-TAGOUT AT THE SOURCE PRIOR TO CONNECTING THE LINE WIRES TO CNC. HOWEVER, IF THIS NOT THE CASE OR ARE NOT SURE HOW TO DO THIS, CHECK WITH APPROPIATE PERSONNEL OR OBTAIN THE NECESSARY HELP BEFORE CONTINUING. ALWAYS CHECK THE INCOMING LINES WITH AN AC VOLTAGE DETECTOR TO MAKE SURE POWER HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED.
Electrical power must be phased properly to avoid damage to your equipment. The Power Supply Assembly PC board incorporates a "Phase Detect" circuit with neon indicators. When the orange neon is lit (NE5), the phasing is incorrect. If the green neon is lit (NE6), the phasing is correct. If both neon indicators are lit, you have a loose wire; check the connections. Adjust phasing by setting the source power to off and then swapping L1 and L2 of the incoming power lines at the main circuit breaker.
Danger: ALL POWER TO CNC MUST BE TURNED OFF LOCKOUT-TAGOUT AT THE SOURCE PRIOR TO ADJUSTING PHASING. ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK THE INCOMING LINES WITH AN AC VOLTAGE DETECTOR.
Turn off the power and set the main circuit breaker to OFF. Close the door, lock the latches, and turn the power back on.
Remove the key from the control cabinet and give it to the shop manager.
When the machine is properly placed and connected to both air and electrical power, it is ready for final installation (removing shipping blocks, leveling, spindle sweep, etc.) and software activation. The HFO service technician does this. Contact the local HFO to schedule the work.
