Default Warm up

Hey guys, When I click my warm-up button I get an error saying command not found. Do you think I need to do a warm-up for small projects like one sheet of cutting? Does anybody have a warm-up file they can send it and tell me how to install it into win CNC?

I haven't been using the button. Just run at 1/2 speed for 2 minutes, then 3/4 speed for two minutes, and a minute at full speed. Easy to do while running the initialize routine and other final setup tasks. It isn't as important with the small spindles, but it is recommended. It certainly doesn't cost anything to be a little gentle to the spindle. You can feel that it gets a little warmed up from the case temperatures.

Have you tried entering the M3 command to start the spindle?
M5 stops the spindle.

I donít have a WinCNC warm up button, I do it manually.

This is the warm up procedure Iíve always used:


Warm Up:

8.2 WARMING UP


(From the HSD Spindle manual for the 1.0, 1.7 and 3.0kw spindles:)

Every day, when the electro-spindle is started up for the first time, leave it warm up slowly without load. This ensures that
the bearings reach their running temperature gradually, and that the bearing races expand evenly.

The following warming up cycle is recommended:
50% maximum rated speed for 2 minutes. (150 hertz / 9,000 RPM)
75% maximum rated speed for 2 minutes. (225 hertz / 13,500 RPM)
100% maximum rated speed for 1 minute. (300 hertz / 18,000 RPM)

Warm the electro-spindle up before machining whenever the machine has been left idle long enough for it to cool down
to ambient temperature.

Bruce, you read the manual! You are a rare breed, most of us think we are so smart we don't need to read the manual until we botch things up.

I had an instructor years ago and he used to state "Manuel knows everything". He was so right.
