Drive retrofits are smart and economical ways to revive your aging CNC equipment.
The Challenge: Our customer had a Mori Seiki SL-2B that was still a solid machine but the aging spindle drive CIMR-MT-15K was beyond repair.
Our Solution: IcarTeam provided a solution to retrofit the original spindle drive with a newer Yaskawa M5 series inverter/spindle drive. Using the customer’s original chassis from the MT drive we were able to fit the inverter and converter in the frame. Then we mounted several other components such as a signal converter for the resolver on the old motor and some relays for the machines I/O. With some custom programming of the new drive parameters and custom cable connectors we were able to provide the customer a plug and play solution that got them up and running again!
