So today a lot of the HAAS users got together and did some maintenance on the HAAS.
The HAAS is STILL out of Service until tomorrow afternoon sometime. We are in the middle of doing a flush.
So we cleaned the HAAS heavily.
The HAAS Kurt Vise is out of commission, the thrust bearings are toast. We are ordering the parts for it.
We removed the way covers & cleaned them up real well.
We installed the replacement tool release button.
We installed a new coolant filter.
We think we found the source of the Spindle fault, the VFD fans do not appear to come on, the fans are good as we tested them. We will likely power it with a 24 volt source.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY a NEW Sticker. It’s worth another 30 percent better performance.
Thanks to all those who helped, we probably put in 50-60 man hours into the machine today.
