Mazak Space Gear G48 Mirror Alignment

Mazak Space Gear G48 Mirror Alignment

Mazak Space Gear G48 Mirror Alignment

Hi guys,
I'm trying to align internal bean on my Space Gear SG-48. This Machine has Fanuc control and Panasonic CO2 resonator.  Fanuc resonator is easy to align (internal bean) they have control PC where u can hook up your digital multi-meter and get max power by adjusting the Micro meters on Output mirror and Rear Mirror. The concept of these both resonators seems very similar Panasonic also has Micrometers X,Y on Output mirror and rear mirror. Does anyone know how to hook up multi-meter on a Panasonic C02 laser??? Any suggestion/help would be appreciated.

==> Anyone here with panasonic Resonator Alignment Exp at all?

RE: Mazak Space Gear G48 Mirror Alignment

If you require info for Mazak please email us at enquiries@mba-eng.co.uk.
Regards your question......
Is the Resonator a Type 7 or Type 8 panasonic.
Please be careful when setting up a Panasonic, early version the mirror verniers were connected to the HV!!
You will need a power probe to confirm the o/p power from the resonator, but I can give you the basic setup procedures.
If you are in real difficulties contact Graham Eaton at Mazak Laser UK, ex fanuc CNC and Laser Eng

RE: Mazak Space Gear G48 Mirror Alignment

I believe Graham no longer works for Mazak but if you need to contact them we have found them more than helpfull and with the space gear you can do a lot of damage to the torch and external mirrors if you do not get the alignment carried out correctly (if the internal alignment gets adjusted then the external alignment will be out and that will also need to be re-aligned). I would suggest maybe you get a Mazak engineer to check out your machine if you are at all worried about doing something wrong as you could be looking at an expensive repair if you attempt it youself and get it wrong.
Good luck.
