Hurco VMX42 Drive Belt Failure

Spindle drive belts are often overlooked as part of routine PM checks.

This Hurco VMX42 suffered drive belt failure purely due to contaminant ingress on the belts, something that could have been avoided.

We were able to attend site and replace the failed belts after sourcing replacements from our independent suppliers at a fraction of the cost that OEM’s would charge.

The spindle orientation position was reset via the control panel on the Yaskawa Varispeed F7. The machine was fully function tested and put straight back into production.

This was a first for us, having never worked on one of these machines before. This is the XYZ UMC 5-X (The Challenger) 5-axis VMC with Siemens 840DSL ccontrol and Sinamics Drive.

This particular machine is just over a year old and just out of manufacturer warranty. It has been suffering from multiple drive and profinet errors.

Hard Drive Data Loss

30th March 2020

Some of the earlier Siemens 810D and 840D controls can suffer from hard-drive data loss and corruption.

This is more often than not caused by not shutting them down correctly. If the control is accessing or writing data to the hard drive and it’s turned off, the files become corrupt, rendering your machine useless.
