Course: MC502 Maintenance and Troubleshooting for CNC Machines
This course is dedicated to exploring the recommended maintenance procedures of HOMAG CNC machines. Instruction begins with a review of applicable machine terminology, operation review, and safety guidelines, progressing through calibration and preventative maintenance of the various electro-mechanical components. Using machinery interface programs including the Machine Data Report (MDR), students will troubleshoot CNC error codes. A significant portion of class time addresses tooling, specifically, setup, alignment, zero-point calibration in the tool database, and extending tooling life. Mechanical maintenance aspects addressed include machine referencing, vacuum systems, cooling systems, machine cleaning and filters, and lubrication. Additional troubleshooting instruction includes pneumatics, electrical cabinet layout, interpreting schematic diagrams, use of PLC, NUM, and Beckhoff controls, DriveTop software, KEB frequency inverters, various motor axis drives, and the use of hand-held multi-meters for diagnostics.
