CNC grinder Retrofit
Restore reliability - Increase production speed - Improve accuracy
Shorter setup times - Intuitive programming features

Starting this project April 30 2018. The CNC grinder pictured above has sat idle for 5 years due to a poorly executed CNC control upgrade. This customer was understandably hesitant to spend his money again, however, this Toyota is a very solid machine tool and the business is in needs of more production capability. After much vetting he chose Machines in Motion, Inc.

The OEM CNC control had over 150 relays 
    Poorly executed control upgrade.

Day 2 presented us with a surprise. 

Part Rotation motor
Turns out this motor was specially built for this application.
No standard motor drive will power this hybrid DC motor. It will need to be replaced.

Begin day 3 on-site. After others had tried I was finally able to remove the drive shaft.
Further inspection found this was in needed repairs.

This Grinding house wanted special conversational part programming.
Machines in Motion was able to provide this.
Now they can fill in the values found on the part print then press cycle start.
