Is there anyone here that has experience with the Citizen E32? More specifically, it is an E2-32. Whether that designation is necessary or not, I don't know. Anyway, to the point...
About a week ago, in the morning, at power up, I would intermittently get Alarm EX008 No. 2 Turret Servo Alarm. Powering off the machine and powering up again fixed it, initially, for the rest of the day. The alarm has now progressed to the point of the machine only being able to run a part or two before alarming out.
I called Citizen about it. They said they think it may be the drive for that servo is dieing. It is an obsolete drive, meaning not available new. I have searched for it online with no luck. I found a place that will repair it, but they won't tell me for how much until I send it to them for evaluation.
Has anyone run across the above mentioned problem? If so, was it the drive? Could it possibly be a temperature issue? If it happens to be the drive, does anyone have an E32 parts machine that might be willing to sell a working turret servo drive? The drive is: Melservo-SC 102T
Any help is much appreciated.
