Model 50

Postby casey marionneaux » Tue, Nov 12 2013, 2:51PM

Hi, I have a model 50 that has been upgraded to 91000 control and siemens drives and motors. I am new to this machine and following the instructions on manually moving individual axis or homing, I keep getting following errors. When the machine is reset I can hear the servos holding position but I can actually move them by hand with little to no resistance. My experience with servos tells me this is not right. It's like there is no torque. Every axis does this in the machine. The machine ran some last year during setup but that was the furthest the install guy got. We are trying to get this thing up and running soon and I cannot figure out if this issue is something with the drives or power supply or something that I need to change in the software. I am not familiar with the software but poking around, I really do t see anything helpful. Any suggestions?
