    Default DownUnder Machine Build .. Pro 60120 with Servos and other fun stuff

    So I think I first spoke to Cory from CNCRP back in 2016.
    After much R&D, saving and thought.. and countless hours reading..

    I think my order will ship from CNCRP this week, and take a few weeks to get to Perth via sea freight.
    In the meantime, there has been much planning & sourcing of the controls and electronics - I decided to
    go all in.

    Leave the photos to give you an idea of what's on the plan...

    i. Spindle - went for the 3.5kW ER25 sized Chinese eBay spindle.. the spindle/collet runout was < 0.008mm . Deflection of the gantry/tool will be key.
    ii. 3 phase VFD, braking resistor, line reactor in separate steel enclosure
    iii. Main enclosure with expansion for 4th axis, ETH300/UB1 plus an ethernet PLC for delayed start/control stations/state machine/email alerts

    Currently waiting for slotted ducting and final batch of electrical cable / parts to finish the panels then it should look a lot better!

    Looks like a serious setup.

    No dramas.. the white one is an old 1ph Powtran PI8100 I had which was used as a mockup. The black one is the new 3ph PI9130 I bought.

    I see you have a load or line reactor? Nice setup.

    It seems I need line reactors for my local power supply for a stable running VFD.

    I had chronic problems running the 1 to 3 phase Powtran on my dust cyclone for ages, where it would trip out every few minutes.

    I then tried a more expensive 3 ph Lenze VFD with an EMI filter .. but that also kept tripping out as well.

    A 3% line reactor did wonders for the reliability of that system and at a far cheaper cost (US$120) than renting a 3 phase power analyzer to track down if it was a transient, phase imbalance or other supply issue.

    Another benefit was the slight drop in voltage as my supply last time I checked was 240/415v

    Not yet.. CNCRP quoted 5 weeks but that is the actual ship travel time ..

    As it is LCL , it will be a total time of 2.5 weeks before the ship even leaves port.

    So in reality from leaving CNCRP mid August to my door will be mid October
