Ikegai FX30 Retrofit

This is a Centroid T400 AC-servo retrofit to a 1981 flat bed turret lathe, completed by CNC Services Northwest in the Fall of 2006.

The machine has a 12-station hydraulic turret; hydraulic chuck; and 15HP two-range spindle.

We mounted the console in the original cabinet face.

I installed all other components on the original cabinet behind the headstock.

I kept the original disconnect switch and circuit breakers, control power transformer, and a DC rectifier assembly for the magnetic spindle clutch.

The new spindle drive and servo drive are in the upper part of the cabinet. Hydraulic, coolant and emergency stop contactors are below the servo drive. The PLC and logic power supplies are on the door.
