  • intelocks (hanning pins)

    we have a problem with one lane interlocking where the respot cells dont let go of the pins when the table goes back down to release the pins from the respot cells i have tried everything checked all pivot studs, respot cells, even the pawl adjustment 1/8" , heck i even canged out all the respot cells, it only happens every 30 to 70 frames and i just cant seem to figure it out.

    Keith,

    The first thing that comes to mind is you have a wire off your OOR switch that is touching ground intermittently. Is the sweep down when you have a banana stop? Do you ever get a false OOR?

    Next check that your shifter cam link stop screw is adjusted. AMF specs are 4 turns but I set mine to 2 turns. If it is backed out so that it doesn’t touch at all, it will also cause a problem because it takes to much force to break the locking function of the RSC’s.

    One other thing that I have run into is some of the replacement shifter link…aka… batman cam…are not machined the same as the original. I have had to build up and machine the inside of the wing since it was too deep. You might want to try adjusting the pawl as close to the batman cam without it touching instead of the AMF specs of 1/8”.

      the sweep is always up when this happens but i did check the wires and non of them are off i will check the shifter cam and the adjustment also the pawl and let you know also i am still new but for the sake of sounding dumb whats a OOR

      thanks for the help,

        It is running through a cycle and not releasing pins?

        Check all respot wire ways for binding against any pivot studs...etc.

        Prolly the shifter link.....with cells closed and no pins back it out 4 turns so the cells don't "lock" shut.

          Along with what the other guys have mentioned, if that doesn't cure your problem check:

          1)Make sure that the respot cam follower (the long boomerang thingy on the front) is not tweaked. It should be straight in line and not twisted the slightest bit. This causes uneven pressure to the pawl ass'y.

          2) Make sure above cam follower is not bottoming out out limit bolt on the framework behind the green springs. Watch it when it runs and see if the back of the follower bottoms out on that bolt.

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">An OOR is an Out Of Range also called off-spot(oftewel een verschoven pin buiten bereik van de gripper).

            Take a good look at your machine, sit behind or on top of it and figger out if the table makes one or two cycles, this will make it easier to find your problem.

              Yeah i've had this same problem before too with a couple machines, i would have to run the table down with the cam, stop it and release the respot cells by hand...then it's fine for a while. Well at least i have some food for thought next time it happens.

                what worked on mine is putting the pawl closer than the 1/8 in. measurement then setting the stop bolt on the cam (or batman cam) to 3 turns as stated in previous replys havent had a problem since.
