hi guys we really need some help as this is a new one for us!
yesterday we overtravelled the machine with a . missing in a program so what happened was the machine (Takisawa TC2 Lathe) loaded up on the corodrill we hit the emergency stop, removed the piece from the chuck by taking one of the jaws off as the chuck wouldn't open under the pressure from the tool.
then as we have done in the past fired the machine back up again to manually jog the machine back into range but it simply wouldn't let us...
so we have at this stage
manually turned the ball screw on the x axis to get it off the limit switch (didnt fix)
tested all limit switches on x and z axis (didnt fix)
reset all breakers and checked fuses (didnt fix)
anyone got any ideas your help would be awesome, Im just the dickhead engineer!
