Hey Everyone,

 

I recently purchased the 4 Axis X-Winder and have been attempting to run dry trails to ensure that the X-winder functions properly. I have gone through the set-up wizard and ensured everything is set-up correctly. Now the issue I am running into stems from when I open the X-Winder Executer software. The rotary, linear motors will connect without issue but the carriage and mandrel motor will "blink" and display this error.

4X-23 DH Rotary Not Zeroing at Horizontal.

Hello,We are running through getting our university's XWinder repaired and recalibrated and have run into a snag with the DH Rotary not being horizontal after zeroing. When we home the machine, the Rotary axis rotates until the limit switch is hit, then rotates back to its zero position, but this zero position is about 15 degrees off horizontal which is giving a +-15 degree rotational offset to our test winds.We have been unable to find anything about how to configure this in either the…

Want to sell 2-AXIS MODEL 2X-23

2-axis model 2X-23 never used. Bought in 2016 for a prototype project but it took a different direction. Added mini lathe chucks for use with bar stock, tubing or gun barrels. Still has original chuck plates. Comes with two 4lb creel of carbon 6k tow-roving fiber. Willing to let go for  very reasonable price. Need to free up space.

Fibre slips off left end

Hello all,after many trials, we still have problems with fibre slippage on left end but right end works perfectly.For various winds the fibre aligns excentrical on the DH roller during the linear pass to left end. An additional tool before the roller to keep the fibre in the centre only showed minor improvements in the winding process. Furthermore, it seems that the elliptical moves are slightly different in terms of speeds and rotations of DH and the fibre tension drops significantly more on…

"Asking $1,500 including shipping. Filament winder is broken down into two 12x12x48 boxes for easier shipment UPS. Broke down to sub assemblies. Should be easy to reassemble."
