New to the forum and i'm finding it a bit daunting navigating around it as there is just so much information to look at! thats a good thing thou!
I'm in my final year of an electronics degree and for year's project, I have been given the task of getting a CNC machine (that the college purchased through auction) up and running.
Some details of the machine : It's a 3 - axis, X, Y, Z type,
Mitutoyo manufactured, model B-231
Uses linear scale encoders.
The motors were already pulled from the machine so i'm not entirely sure what were originally on it, but afaik I can use most average type motors within reason of course.
What I'm basically doing with this thread is looking for any input from more experienced users, as i'm primarily an electronic engineer ad this is new water to me.
I hope to also use this thread as a type of log for my progress, by continually updating it, I hope to encourage or users to give input .
P.s. as i said i'm finding it difficult getting relevant information from the forum, if anyone knows some useful threads to me, please dont hesitate to post them here, thank you.
