  • Rengegade table and sweep

    Sometimes my tabel or sweep motor will for some reason not stop running. The table will go up and down lifting pins without the sweep moving. Or the sweep will run up, down, back and forth without stoping. The problem is easyli fixed by pressing the program zero button on the mp chassis. What is wrong? I am no electrical wizzard so i need help...
    What gets broken must get fixed! By me....

    Check you table and sweep cam adjustments.

    Use the 136/176 gauge.

      if you do not have the guage you can do it another way.wind the cams (each of them in turn) to the large high part, loosen the small 7/16 nut and turn the screw in till you hear it click, then turn it out one complete (360 degrees) and nip up the jam nut.Do this to all six cams. if you have steel ones. If they are aluminium then turn out the screw 1 and 1/2 complete turns.All that is left to do after this is to simply loosen and rotate the cam clusters to obtain the desired stopping positions. e.g. table stopping , first guard and second guard on the sweep.rotate the cluster you need to move away from you if the stopping position is too early and towards you if the stopping position is too late.Then run the machine and adjust until you are satisfied.DO NOT ROATE THE CAMS by more than 1/8 to a 1/4 of an inch each time.there is a way to do this with the winding handle by rotating the motor till you obtain the position you wish and then adjusting the cluster, this way you will be close but i find it better to let the pinspotter show you where it is at its electrical zero or guard positions and adjust it this way.
      Adjust table cam as one unit. Adjust first guard with the SB/SC cam cluster and secone guard with the SA one.
      Hope this helps you.Good Luck.

        I'm not sure if Frode is describing a single problem on one machine, or multiple problems on multiple machines.

        If it's one machine, I'd probably try swapping the chassis to another machine first to be certain it is this machine and not the chassis.

          Check you MP chassis plugs, either one of the terminals slightly pushed in and contact minimal, or burnt and need replacing

            Check the MP board, which one do you have?? If it is an older Mark 3 or Mark 5, your board might be at the end of its life. Loosing its timing is first sign of a board getting ready to die. (the mind is alwyas the 1st to go)

              MP Board needs replaced, or sweep & table cams/wireways need vacuumed/sprayed out.
