Air Assist Cylinder


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I've recently added some new equipment to a Z-Axis as part of an upgrade.

This has added a fair bit of weight to the axis and the motor isn't coping too well as a result. There is another machine on site ( a Fanuc), that uses air assist which works really well, so, i'd like to try the same approach on the affected machine.


Controller is a Turbo Pmac2 in a UMAC configuration. I've configured a spare output (M7135) and tested it ok. Could someone provide me with a code example on how to fire this output? Output to energise an air solenoid.


Basically what is required is, once a counter-clockwise movement of the motor is detected, M7135 needs to go high. Motor is #3 in the system.


Many thanks.
