amada turbo run time,and chiller temp?

amada turbo run time,and chiller temp?

we had are turbo replaced about a year ago or so by fanuc i failed to log the hours off of the machine i was wondering if the run time in the system menu is the correct time to judge for oil life and etc. also what is the temperature ranges for the chiller im assuming if it gets to hot i will get a alarm. Is there a max temp i don't want to run? the machine is a amada 2415 a ii 2000 kw the chiller is a koolant koolers c class. thanks for this great site and all the info.

RE: amada turbo run time,and chiller temp?

chiller temp should be 25°c or 77°f if the resonator is a Fanuc C2000. I forget the tolerance, I will look it up next week and post it. Our C2000 has roots blowers, so not exactly sure, but I should have the manual for yours at work. we purchased the Fanuc Idocs from GEFanuc which has most of them. In the winter we keep our chiller reservoir heated to 70 degrees when laser is not running because the resonators do not like cold chiller fluid.

RE: amada turbo run time,and chiller temp?

thanks for the info its running around 85 or so but has gotten up to 96 we are scheduling a maintenance on it.

RE: amada turbo run time,and chiller temp?

You usually set the temperature on the chiller. is it set for 77, but can't get cooler than 85? If it can't get cooler, then you probably need a freon charge. it is possible someone set it higher than recommended on purpose. not familiar with koolant kooler, but if you have the manual for it, it should tell you how to set it. If not, get the part number off the temperature controller and download the manual for it. alot use eurotherm controllers which are readily available online.
