Hi all you Emcotronic M1 users or owners of the EMCO F1P-CNC. I have one of these machines in my workshop and have collected a lot information about this machine with help from others. I have pasted all this information out on a website.
So if you are searching for info about this machine check
Hi after my computer crashed I needed to make a new cabel to the machine to fit a DB9 COM port. So I made a litte drawing for the cable Have tested it an I works all rigth. Unfortunally no progress to the drip feed or expanded memory. So I have to divide my programs if they are to big
Hi Smoregrava! I need some help with my F1P! I cant get the hyper Terminal to work! The first problem i have is that my computer does not have a com port so I have to use a usb to serial i don't know if this work? The next problem is the setup for hyper terminal?
I have a NC code and i convert it to text and copy the text in to hyper but it does not work can you tell me how to do it. Normally i get alarm 60 or 62 in the maskin so some connection it has. I have made the cable like you describe in your page. If you can tell me from beginning how you do it i will be happy thanks in advance.
Hi I have had problems with USB to Serial converters. It's no problem reciving data to the computer but durin sending the voltage is a little low for F1P If any one have good experience with this it would be nice to know the make of that converter.
Alarm 62 Means that your code is not rigth. So you migth have typed something worng. Post a code example you are using an I could have a look and see if I could se anything. But If I remember rigth all the code to the Alarm62 appears would appear in your program so it would be possible to se where the error is
Ok, quick update, it appears that this machine did -not- include the tapered collet needed to install a cutter and run the machine, and that the controller doesn't want to do anything without said collet.
Any leads on where we can acquire one inexpensively for testing?
How to set up hyperterminal. Hyperteminal have to use the same baudrate as the controller. I have seen differnet sett up. I belive the fastest I have tried is 2400. Sometimes I had some issues with the transfer so I ended up using 500. You have to check what number the parameter for baudrate is but I belive it is D0 and if I dont remember wrong the D1 is stopbit. I belive I used 1 stop bit.
I am finding more and more information the more i dig. Found a shop that sells tool-holders, but they have no data on the machine, and it seems that tapered collets come in a number of size options. So i suppose the question i need to ask is what size is the taper on the F1P milling machine?
I do apologize if i am asking in the wrong place, i found this thread and as the OP claims it is dedicated to the M1 and F1P, this seems the logical place to ask.
J’ai acheté une machine CNC EMCO VMC-100, avec commande EMCOtronic M1, le problème est au niveau de la partie mécanique, lorsque je démarre la machine tous marche bien sur l’écran, mais la partie mécanique ne marche pas, c’est à dire lorsque je mets manuel et je déplace les axes, les chiffres dans l’écran montre que les axes se déplacent mais réellement les axes sont bloqué, et les moteurs sont freiné on dirais qu’elle travaille en mode simulateur, en plus je crois qu’il y a une problème au niveau de programme constructeur,
