If we had any doubts about the new Electrician - then today he proved his worth. Actually there are 2 of them- Frank and Petra, who both worked their butts off today.
The bulk of the work was preparing the power in our factory. The actual connecting to the machine was a breeze for them. What i did not realise - is that these machines are pretty well plug and play. If i had looked at the back of the cabinet - i might have seen where the power plug fixes into it. problem was that the connection is designed for a plug which has 2 male prongs and a female prong. European or USA? So they had to fit a junction box to connect Flex Cable.
The 2 machines that they connected today fired up as soon as we turned them on. We took the gantry for a drive and it is smooth as silk. Tested operation of DSP Controller and Spindle direction - All SWEET!!
The big machine will not be connected till tomorrow. Here are some pics of the 2 that were connected today.
The first photo shows my son Jeremy taking the Gantry for a drive, watched by the Electricians Frank and Petra
