Fixing of issues with 4X winding


Hello all,
 
I am writing to you from Robert Gordon University, UK. My manager bought this X winder equipment from you few month ago and now we are facing issues when it is operated in 4X. We have calculated all the values following your demo videos and generated the G-code. in the start, the carriage moves from right to left direction and keeps the tension but once it reaches at max length,…

DHL problem Y-axis wrong direction


I have a problem when starting 3-axis and 4-axis winding. Before starting, the elements move to their home positions and pressing the switches. 
The carriage and DHR bounce after pressing the switch, but DHL remains on the pressed switch. After that, instead of moving towards the mandrels,
DHL starts pressing on the switch trying to break through it. At this point I…

Z Axis offset does not updating location


When I try changing my Z-axis offset to a different number, the winder does not go to that location. My z- axis offset was set to 2.5 inches, I wanted to change that to 5 inches, and even though on I saved the z axis offset as 5 inches, the winder continues to go to the 2.5 inch location instead of the 5 inch location.

Is there anything I should do or am doing incorrectly? I am currently using the 14.9 version of software.

4axis winding stops and gets stuck at the hemi ends

Greetings,We are a group of undergraduate students who are currently working on the winding of a pressure vessel. We have successfully assembled the machine and calibrated it to account for any offsets. During our initial tests using the trace function to ensure proper alignment, everything appeared to be in order. However, we encountered difficulties when attempting to initiate the 4-axis hemi end winding process.To kickstart this process, the machine's executor homes it, aligning itself with…

Incomplete Windings after Software Finishes

We are working with a 4-axis x-winder in 2X mode. We have successfully wound a 3.5-inch mandrel many times however are now struggling to wind a ~12-inch mandrel (we have the 16" expansion kit). The software claims to be 100% done with the wind but in reality, the part is 95% done (see photos). Has anyone else had this problem when working with larger mandrels? We have done multiple winds with the same result. Thanks for any ideas!
