Hernault Somua mill with Acorn and DMM servos

Post by yellow_submarin »

Hi,

My second Acorn project came to life today.

This is an old French mill with a travelling column. I bought it partially converted to CNC with DMM 750W servos and DYN2 drives. I gathered an Intel NUC, an Elo touchscreen and a fresh Acorn.

Right now homing is set with inductive sensors (already had them) and ZRI from the servos. I still need to install a new spindle motor and drive (2.6kw AC servo on the way) and auto lube. A fourth axis and power drawbar will come later.
