    Default Dust collection hose pulls Felder H10 gantry

    I work for a medium sized millwork company and we are switching over to a doweling system to build our cabinets. The issue arises in our CNC machine, A Felder H10, is fighting with its dust collection hose and throwing our tolerances way off. From what I can see, It pulls the machine almost a full millimeter off on some cuts. the hose is plenty long, We have even tried to tie part of it up to support the weight. It's almost as if our dust collections pull can throw off the machines gantry entirely during operation. I've disengaged the general safety and watched the hose pull the machine toward the ball joint via the digital readout. I'm getting frustrated because Felder has been a little less than helpful with this issue. I'd greatly value some input on this subject, seeing as it is a barrier keeping my shop from running at its fullest potential.

    Thank you,

    Charles

    I've never seen a Felder H10, but there's no way a dust collection hose should be moving any part of the machine.

    I'd push and pull on the machine with the dust collector off, and try to figure out what exactly is moving, and how?

    Dust collection hookups on industrial routers are generally left up to the purchaser to figure out, but I'd find it difficult to believe any sort of hose configuration could pull the gantry of that machine out by 1 mm. There is either something seriously wrong with the machine or you have an elephant's trunk for a collection hose. I'm with Ger on this one. Disconnect the hose and manually try to move the gantry. Any movement warrants a look by the Mfg.
