Head Drive Home Pulse Setup Procedure

The following procedure explains how to set up the head drive home pulse
with respect to the vertical and theta axes and the limit position.
Prerequisites:
Timing belts are removed
Tools:
MTR Home Pulse Setup Fixture
Comments:
This procedure is only used when setting the machine up at the factory or
when replacing the timing belt or motor in the field. Timing belts are to be
inspected on an annual basis.
This process is written for the use of both the manufacturing factory (place of
origin) technician performing the adjustment on the bench and the field
technician performing the adjustment at the customer's site.
The goal of this procedure is to position the head vertical at its negative limit
and the head theta at a point between its positive and negative limit
establishing the optima home pulse location, relevant to these limits.
Failure to properly perform this setup results in the machine not zeroing
properly.

Procedure:

1.Power down the machine and perform Lockout/Tagout according to local procedures.

 

2.Insert the setup fixture so it positions the head to the negative vertical
limit, and the head theta between its positive and negative limit.

 

3.Loosen the 4 motor mounting bolts and slide the motor up against the
tension spring. Hold it in position and retighten two of the bolts.

4.Slip the belt off the pulleys. Rotate the head theta motor shaft so that
the mark on the top of the shaft lines up with cables exiting the motor
housing, then rotate the shaft clockwise approximately 20 degrees
further.
5.Attach the belt to the pulleys while holding the motor shaft in
position.
6.Loosen the head theta motor mounting screws to allow the tension
spring to slide the motor into position. Retighten the motor mounting
screws.
7.Loosen the head vertical motor mounting screws and slide the motor up
against the tension spring using the jacking screw.

 

 

8.Rotate the head vertical motor shaft so the mark (or keyway, if no mark
exists) on top of the shaft lines up between case mounted connectors of
motor housing.
9.Attach the belt to the pulley while holding the motor shaft in position.
10.Loosen the head vertical motor mounting screws to allow tension
spring to slide the motor into position. Retighten the motor mounting
screws .
11.Remove the setup tool.
