My 1999 Mori Seiki MV40E has a morning sickness problem.
The pnuematic ram that pushes the tool pot down prior to the arm swing out will stick in the morning and sometimes stick if the machine has been left to sit for a bit, 1/2 hour or so.
The machine will go into a "Tool change time out too long" Alarm if left in this condition for 15 seconds or so.
The fix I am doing as of right now is to go into the custom page and cycle the pot up / pot down keys until the pot cycles OK.
I have taken the cover off the carosel and cleaned and lubricated the ram. Did not help. I did notice air fittings on the ram that look adjustable, I was not sure so I left them be. It seems to me if just a bit more air pressure could reach the ram it would function perfect again.
Does anyone know how to adjust the air to the Pots Ram?
