we are selling a working 4/5 axis fadal trunnion model tr65 currently
used on a fadal vmc 3016. It works with most fadal 3 axis cnc mills and
other brands too. This has been used to cut aluminum exclusively since
purchased new. Wire harness included. I can e mail pictures. $16.250
I Will include the fourth and fifth boards and the hydraulic brake for a
total of $24k.
"Maybe they want to to buy it?"
Hard to say, but there is no such thing as a TR65 (
My mistake. TR means Tilt/Rotary and it's the only five axis set up they
make. The Model is TR165.
As an option - new - on a new machine it's about thirty grand depending on
the control. The F18i-MB5 with the RISC processor option is considerably
The brake is also pneumatic, not hydraulic. That might have changed as well
but if so the change is fairly recent.
How old is that thing Paul?
I'd never seen or even heard of it.
What's the difference betweem that and a 165, DC motors or is it actually
smaller with a 2.56" rotary? The 165 is about 6.0" diameter.
That would be pretty cool.
You probably ought to offer it with the boards and all of the hardware or at
least see if the parts can still be had from the factory.
Given the condition it's in I'd offer you six thousand if everything were
1997. I m told they are exactly the same. The 165 was just a new
numbering system. It is being offered with the boards and brake and wire
harness. I believe its 6.5" rotary. It is DC. Rebuilt units go for 30K
with out boards, brake, wire harness. Its only ever been used on
aluminum. For someone needing 4 and 5 axis functionality on a 3 axis
machine, this is a deal.
I'm sure you were.
Apparently they changed the model whenthey wen;t to brushless/digital.
It wasn't numbering, but it was important.
For you it is, at least at that price,
Yu won't get that much unless you can find an idiot.
You might, as there are a bunch around.
Good Luck and be sure and let us all know how this works out.

Less than it would cost to buy your hardware at the price you are offering
it and then install the stuff and make it work.
A 1997 3016 with a TR65 isn't worth more than 30 grand, if that, and what
you might actually end up with is a bottomless pit into which money will be
And when you mount and hook up a tilt rotary table it's five.
I don't have any "Pig in a Poke" links and that's what you are selling.
What you are offering is worth whatever anyone is willing to pay you for it.
Installed on the machine it goes with the whole setup might bring thirty
thousand dollars at most.
Seperated from the machine tool it's just a paper weight unless you can find
someone that has this setup and is looking for a rebuildable spare.
Some adventurous soul might pay between six and ten thousand dollars for
everything, boards and all, and then spend the hundred or more hours it will
take to make it work as an addition to an existing three axis FADAL.
I know what I'd have to pay for a NEW 3020/3016 with a F18i and a TR165 with
Fanuc AC Digital drives.
I priced a turn key with one 18 months ago. You wouldn't get my price and I
won't disclose it but anyone that would pay you $24,000.00 for what you are
offering could, and probably would, just buy new. It's a car payment.
This is the sort of project Bipolar DingDong might take on but that's
because he's so hard headed.
I'll bet he wouldn't offer you ten thousand but he might and he's got a
FADAL that he could mount it on.
What do you think Sam?
Ten seems a little high after seeing that cable. You'd have to go through
the whole thing and even then you'd have dc drives.
Dingdong perhaps but not an utter fool
John for that money I wouldn't waste my time with fadal's plug and play
stuff but instead would buy a high quality used 300mm tilt rotary possibly
tsudakoma or nikken....as a point of refrence, the 1400-4 controller card
with rotary axis eprom set are worth about 2k each--also, I just bought 5
amplifiers ~20 amp continuous 30 peak for 15.00 each off of ebay.
