Other Possible Solutions to this Question

  • What is the rpm range of the 2.2kw spindle and inverter?

    The VFD is capable of a maximum of 400 Hz frequency. That converts to 24,000 RPM for the spindle. The minimum frequency is 100 Hz which is 6000 RPM.

  • What are the noise levels of the 1.5 Kw and 2.2Kw spindles?

    The noise level of the 1.5 kW and the 2.2 kW are very similar. The noise level is considerably quieter than typical routers. I am going to add sound db levels to this FAQ a bit later.

    Additional Information:
    The db (decibels) reading for the spindle is 70 and an 890 Porter Cable router (a lower powered tool than the spindle) measured 90 db. Both measurements were taken in the same environment and measured at the same distance from the tool.

    Additional Information:
    Practically silent. The inverter makes more noise!

  • on the 2.2Kw water cooled spindle, what is the cooling port thread type and size?

    It is an M8 metric size on the port going into the spindle, and a 1/4" compression on the other side.

    Is the M8 port a M8x1.25 or M8x1?

    If you are referring to the book build, use a chamfer bit that is large enough to create a chamfer for most of the edge of the 3/4" thickness of the board, but still has a sliver of space for the bearing on which to ride.

    Additional Information:
    Mine is M8x1mm. I replaced the stock fitting with a brass hose barb and used "steel wire reinforced vacuum hose" with a 1/4" ID because it resists kinking and collapsing.

  • What is the Greenbull average power consumption in conjunction with 2.2KW spindle?

    You can determine you overall CNC machine current consumption be adding your spindle power plus your CNC motion power and the power that your computer requires.

    the formula to understand the current of each component is watts = volts x current, or W = V * I, or with some algebra, Current (I) = Watts (W) / Volts (V)

    For example:

    Spindle:
    The 2.2 kW = 2200 watts and you can find the current by taking the input voltage of 220 volt and get the current using the above formula: 2200 W / 220 V = 10 A (Amps)

    CNC motion electronics:
    The power supply that comes with our machines is generally 8.8 A

    Computer:
    The computer that you use to control the CNC machine will have a specific wattage. Let's say the watts is 500: 500 W / 110 V = 4.5 A

    Add them up: 10 A + 8.8 A + 4.5 A = 23.3 Amps

  • What is a normal max operating temperature for a 2.2kw water cooled spindle?

    I don't know the exact temperature, but the spindle actually needs to get to a relatively high temperature for normal operation and to protect the bearings. IF I find better information from our supplier, I will add this information to this answer.

  • What is the benefit to using a spindle over a standard router?

    This solution will refer to the water cooled spindles that we sell. Generally, routers are air cooled which push air downwards through the router to cool the router motor. This has an undesirable effect for CNC machines that will blow the dust and chips into the air. The water cooled spindle will not blow since it uses water to cool the spindle motor. This allows the chips and dust to be confined within the dust shoe and get removed by the vacuum. Additionally, standard routers have a sound level that far exceeds that of the spindle.

  • What size of wire do you use to connect the VFD to the spindle?

    The type of wire that should be used between the spindle and the VFD (Variable Frequency Driver also called the inverter) should be of stranded type and we use between 18 and 16 AWG.

    The total current is divided among the three coil wires, therefor a wire gauge of 16 should be sufficient.

    Currently we use 20AWG 4 conductor.

  • What wire size to use from VFD to 2.2kW spindle?

    We use 16 AWG wires between the spindle and the VFD. This wire size has a maximum capacity for 22 Amps, a good buffer to eliminate any possibility for overheating. The 2.2kW using 220V may draw up to 10 Amps (220 x 10 = 2200).

    That is, all three wires are sharing the total current draw.

    List of recommended actions:
    If error shows at ramp up or at constant speed:
    1. Check for a short circuit or partial short circuit and the insulation of the output wire is sufficient.
    2. Increase the capacity or the inverter if it is too small. Replace with an inverter that has a larger capacity
    3. Extend the ramp-up time
    4. Decrease the torque and increase the set value.
    5. Check if the motor is blocked and if there is a sudden change in load.
    6. Check if there is a sudden chance in the power supply voltage.
    7. Extend ramp down time
    9. DC breaking is too high. Decrease DC breaking
    10. Replace the inverter.
    11. Check to see if there is a short circuit with the connection wire of the motor.
    12. Extend the ramp-down time or add a breaking resistor.
    13. Check the mains supply voltage and insure there isn't ant sudden change in voltage.
    14. Send the inverter for repair.
    15. Check whether the input voltage is normal
    16. check whether there is a sudden change in load.
    17. Check whether there is any phase missing.
    18. Check the fan in the inverter. Is it spinning? Is it blocked? Does it have any foreign matter stuck on the fins of the fan? If so, clear the fan.
    19. Check the ambient temperature in the space that the inverter is placed.
    20. Check for adequate ventilation for the inverter where it is placed.
    21. Check for jamming or any sudden change with respect to mechanical load.
    22. Set the V/F curve correctly.
    23. The motor is too small.
    24. The motor is hot and the insulation of the motor degraded.
    25. Check if the voltage has a large variance.
    26. Check if there is a phase missing.
    27. Contact the supplier
