Connecting RS232 cable to machine locks control up

This was the most interesting CNC problem of the year!  Had a customer with a Brother TC32B CNC machine that has had a problem from day one when they got the machine. What happens is when they connect the RS232 cable to the main NC Board the machine locks up. No alarms, screens change but cannot handwheel or perform any physical movements. The machine could communicate via RS232 with the cable connected. They tried a new computer as well as a cable but the same thing occurred. First though was the NC board must be bad, but the customer had already replaced it.

Service in the Southeast

I recently had a problem with intermittent A-axis faults on my Fadal 4020 machine and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I bought several machines from Flint Machine Tools and they come in a fixed the problem within 2 hours. I just wanted to spread the word about how consistent flint service is with all their customers. I think they only service the southeast so if you need someone quick and reliable service, call them!

X-axis stops moving during machining cycle with no alarms

Troubleshooting problems when no alarms occur are always fun. In this case it was an intermittent problem where I happen to get it to stay in a condition to troubleshoot. The main goal of any troubleshooting is to repeat the problem or troubleshoot when it is in the current fault condition. With this problem I was lucky to have the problem occur and catch it in time before it changed back.

Feedrate Slows Down for No Reason During Machining

Had this problem occur on a machine where the customer was milling across a long part. During the machining process the feedrate slows down and speeds up constantly. After troubleshooting the feedrate problem I determined that the spindle speed was slowing down as well. When the spindle speed slows down the feedrate automatically comps to maintain the recommended rate of removal and changing with the spindle speed.
