  • Swiper comes lower than it has to

    Hello,

    The issue with our first lane is that when you throw the first ball, table raises the pins that were left, swipes, then puts them back down and goes up, but swiper itself lowers itself abit down, so heads of the pins are not even visible for client. Only happening on one lane.
    What could be the solution, so it would not lower?

    Thanks

    This a setting in the Nex-Gen control box. It is call Coast Past A. It allows the table to load pins faster. It is adjustable by turning both of the stop/Run switches to the Stop position, then use the enter key to advance the display to Coast Past A.

    Coast Past A : (00,06,07,08,09,10) - This selection is available on machines with software version 4.95.21 and higher. This selection allows the table to continue past the ‘A” switch after a 1st ball non strike cycles so the pinstation retaining bows can clear pins that may be loaded in the pin holders. This causes the ejector flaps to return to their up position allowing the stations to resume collecting pins, thus reducing overflow.

    0 - Disabled (available with firmware version 4.95.26 and later)

    6 - 10 - Select the lowest number possible that allows the table to drop just far enough to cause all the ejector flaps to return to their up position. Default = 08
    NOTE 1: Always select the lowest number possible that allows the table to drop just far enough to cause the all the ejectors to return to their up position. Be aware that when the table continues past “A” the sweep will also lower. As a result you may begin to see a little bit of the sweep board below the masking unit on 2nd ball. A minor adjustment to the sweep board height will typically correct this.
    NOTE 2: When the table continues past “A” the sweep will also lower. This may result in insufficient clearance for some lane machines to pass under the sweep. Always verify there is sufficient clearance for your lane machine after changing this setting. (A minor adjustment to the sweep board height will typically correct this.) It is suggested that the pinsetter be on 1st ball prior to running your lane machine so that the sweep will always be at its highest position.

      Thanks, billman
      That did it. Was our last issue for some time now. Too many clients were complaining about it and we were tired of explaining to them, that it is not a jam.
      Thank You very much!
