This procedure will show you how to install a UMC-500\SS machine.
Click on the link to see the UMC-750 Leveling and Alignment video. Note: This procedure is the same for UMC-500.
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.
Note: The product is not hazardous, oil soluble, and can typically be disposed however they dispose of used oil.
Machines with the APL and Pallet Pool options built after 4/2021 may come equipped with the 90 degree control cabinet. Please refer to the instructions below on how to prepare the 90 degree control cabinet.
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.
This section tells you how to correctly level and check geometric alingment on a UMC. The machine must be leveled and checked for proper geometric alignment before it will provide optimal performance and accuracy.
Important: Before attempting this procedure the machine must have air and power connected and be operational.
Zero return each axis one at a time or press [POWER UP]. Go through the leveling process.
Repeat these steps to achieve correct machine level.
Verify and test that all the options have been properly installed.
Verify that all machine functions are operational:
