Homag Baz 41 Complex problem1/11
Since i got a couple of months ago, it has had weird problems, which sometimes occur, and sometimes not,
Sometimes the servo drives gives error for too big following error, this neither seems to be linked to anything like accelerating hard with a heavy cut or so, can happen anytime, or can be that doesen't happen for days.
Sometimes when starting, the control power does not want to go on. The light indicator next to the button neither goes on, no error message.
All these problems sometimes occur, and sometimes not. Sometimes a reboot also helps, some days (like today) it seems like no amount of rebooting changes the situation.
Has anyone experienced problems like this with their Homag, or any other cnc router?
A service tech said in the phone that the symptoms seem weird and didn't really know what could it be. Hasn't seen the machine yet, but is going to come for a visit in near future.
Check all connections and grounds.
I had a similar problem in a machine and it was a broken ground strap wrapped in a bundle of wires. As the bundle moved the ground would disconnect and reconnect seemingly at random.
Hey, and thanks for the reply.
I feel for you. I hope it wasn't Stiles that came to look at it.
I have a similar issue, high humidity does TERRIBLE things to my machine, but no 'fix' for going on five years now. The BIRCHER relays for the safety mats are my big killer, but at nearly $1000 each from Stiles it's difficult to drop that every time they act up.
Have you asked about reflashing your PILZ box (if you have one)?
I am using an Optimat BOF 311 from right around the same year.
you can jump the mats out if you don't need that safety
