Hi,

As of this week my companies Walter grinder will have no operator, and me and my other co worker that are supposed to be trained on it have no formal or informal training. I have a manual that shows the functions and how it works, what type of wheels, and some basic programs to set up, but we don't even know how to get started.

So far we have been able to turn the machine on and pull up the screen for referancing the axis'. Unfortunately we have not gotten through referancing them. Also as of today another error message popped up saying 'Move gripper slide up before moving loader axis.'

My main question is; Is there a step by step manual for running this machine that can be accessed through a pdf download? Otherwise is there anyone that would be willing to help me learn the basics of using this machine?

I have searched this forum and a few others as well as google search in search of answers, but have not found anything that can help me along.

Thanks in advance

I figured out the gripper arm retract.

Now we're trying to go through the start up procedure. We are stuck on step 8. Activate the grinding spindle motor.

Do the grinding wheels spin during this step?

the Walters wont be that easy to learn without some sort of training.

I've recently purchased a number of Walter Grinders 3 500's and 2 400's year 2000 vintage and am in need of a service tech to help me get them up to speed. Would you have a reference who could do this?

Hi 2ndcar,
If you are starting from scratch it will be difficult to learn even basic operation of the machine.
Walter makes great machines and they have new powerful T.S. software(also complicated), one thing they are not good at is publishing good manual's.
Try to get some support/training from Walter, this will save you machine down time.
