Other Possible Solutions to this Question

  • My stepper motors are randomly and frequently stalling while using the Pokeys57CNC controller board, any idea what could be the issue?

    I would suspect that the velocity and/or acceleration is too high for the amp setting on the driver. Consider increasing the current amp setting on the driver is the motor can handle the current, or decrease the velocity and/or acceleration.

    You might also want to check to see if you have any mechanical binding on the machine. To check, remove the mechanical drive mechanism so the axis slides freely and slide it from end to end to feel if you have any tight areas or binding.

  • What precision do the CNC machine have, for instance the 12’’ x 36’’ x 3’’?

    Our machine that matches those dimensions, the blueChick, uses roller chain for both X and Y axes, and a 1/2" 5 start 10 TPI lead screw for the Z axis. The precision is generally related to repeatability and we have not does extensive measurement of these tolerances. The resolution is set at better than 1000 steps per inch.

  • Please send a diagram of connections for pokeys57cnc to YL-620 VFD for Mach4

    When you install Mach4 and use the Pokeys57cnc, you will use the plug-in provided by Polabs.

    You can get this plug-in here:
    https://www.poscope.com/product/pokeys57cnc/

    The Pokeys57cnc has a 0-10V output pin (a pulse width modulated (PWM) output pin) labeled onthe diagram as pin 17. You can see this pin at the top of the diagram here:
    https://buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-electronic-component-breakout-Mach4-mach3-USB-ethernet-Board

    In Mach4, you will need to set the spindle speed output top this pin #17. In the plug-in, set this pin at 10kHz.

  • What brand is the 2.2 kW spindle? Same for the VFD. Thanks.

    Spindles are generally covered up to 1 year after date of purchase. We do not repair them in house, but we do work with our manufacturer to replace defective units. Generally if you have a defective unit covered under warranty, we will issue a replacement.

  • Does the PoKeys57CNC board enable simultaneous coordinated motion, as in controlling a 6 axis robot arm with large servo motors?

    Yes, the PoKeys57CNC generates simultaneous multi motor motion. This is a minimum requirement in CNC machine where, say, a circle is needed to be cut, both x and y axes need to move at the same time to create this circle.

    With robotic control, this is not a problem as you will be able to send the required instructions for the individual motors and the controller board will simultaneously move the motors to their commanded positions.

  • What is each axis' resolution for the blueChick in mm or µm?

    The resolution for any of our machines is based on the driver microsetting setting and the machanical parts used for each axis.

    For example:
    The blueChick uses 9 tooth drive sprockets for the x and y axes.
    To determine resolution use this formula:
    Resolution = steps / inch or the travel in steps for one revolution of the drive sprocket
    Steps = (motor steps) * (driver microsteps) or natural motor steps * microstepping setting on the driver
    Inches = t(ooth coun)t *( tooth pitch) or the number of teeth for the drive sprocket

    Resolution = ((motor steps) * (microsteps)) / (teeth * pitch)
    In this example, the microsteps is 16 and the pitch is .25 inches
    = (200 * 16) / (9 * .25")
    = 3200 / 2.25"
    = 1422.222 steps per inch

    For the z axis of the blueChick, the resolution is typically based on 4 micro steps and the travel for one turn of the motor is 1/2". Therefore:
    Resolution = (200 * 4) / .5"
    = 800 / .5"
    = 1600 steps per inch

  • WHAT IS D.O.F OR DEPTH OF FIELD FOR THE BLACKTOOTH LASER AND LENS?

    Depth of Field. This is how far the focal point goes before re-expanding again. With a 2" lens, you have approximately 2-3mm of DOF. This means that you'll have 2-3mm of perfectly focused laser before it starts to re-expand again. If you have a 4" lens, you will have up to 7mm of DOF.

  • What size breaker is required for the 2.2kw 220v vfd ?

    Since a 220V 2.2kW, or 2200W spindle will consume 9 to 10 amps at full torque:

    2200W/220V = 10A
    2200W/240V = 9.2A

    then a 15 amp breaker would be suitable for this load.

  • What is the z-axis travel for your largest machine?

    The largest CNC machine we make at this time (12/04/2015) is the GreenBull 6'x12' model. This model has 2 options for Z-axis travel.

    The short-z option has a total Z travel of 5.75 inches. From that you would subtract the length of the end mill used and the thickness of the spoil board to determine the maximum material thickness. (Example: If the end mill extends 1.25" from the collet and the spoil board is .75", then the material could be up to 5.75 - 1.25 - 0.75 = 3.75 inches in thickness). This is good for most sheet-type materials.

    The long-z option, used mainly for large 3D carvings, requires a custom frame and allows for up to 36" of travel.
