hello everyone that has helped with the problems w my partner 3. well i finally replaced the power supply to the servo cards and everything works except when i try to run one of the existing programs that was in the machine when i bought it i get a z axis software limit error #403 i believe what is the problem
The 403 Z soft limit over travel is just that, The program is try to set up a move out side the travel limits of the machine.
The Partner 3 has about 6" of Z quill travel, so if you tell it to move outside that travel you get errors, it knows "you cant go there".
1. look at at the G54 and G59 parameters and clear out any Z values. Then try again.
2. If you still get 403 error check the Z axis parameters for the Z travels ie: +.100 and -6.0 or such. check the parameter listing that should be in the manual for the travel limits on your particular machine.
