I have retrofit an old posalux-type machine with a Haas 5c controller and a 5c indexer. I have had it running fine for a while, and all of a sudden I am having a strange issue:
I am setting it to make cuts at every 30 degrees. When I run it, before it makes it full turn to 30deg it sticks and sounds like the gears are grinding. I took apart my stepper motor and everything is running fine there. When I attached my extra 5c controller and ran the same program, it went to 30 degrees no problem, so I am now assuming it is something in the controller.
Has anyone had that issue, or know where on the board of the cnc controller I might be able to locate what the problem is? It seems that it is having an issue when it is sending information, I dont, however, know why it is happening, what is happening, or what I can do to fix it. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance Scott
