I recently bought a late 80's Hurco BMC 40 to run as the heart of a small start-up machine shop. I am in the midst of setting this machine up and thought i would share some pics of my first repair. But before the details, I have one question: is there/where is there adjustment for tramming the head on this machine?
Now for the repair. The EMI Suppressor circuit board on this machine was toasted when i bought it. After tracking a used one down, I couldn't bear paying the $350 bucks for it, or the $500 for a new one. (as i mentioned this is a start up operation and cash is tight) I was able to spec out the equivilant new components for less than $100.
About an hours labor and I had the old components removed, and new ones soldered in place. The pin to pin dimension of the new package is slightly wider than the old capacitor, but they fit well enough to do the job.
By the way, the solder joints look much better in person...i think the camera flash created some shadows on the joints.
