Amada laser conditions settings

Amada laser conditions settings

Amada laser conditions settings

Hi everyone, we have received an armada laser cutter (LC 657 II)

The machine is set in Japanese and we are having a very hard time finding a certain screen.

Does anyone know the process to change the cutting conditions?

We are missing this section of the manuals

Thanks heaps!

RE: Amada laser conditions settings

You have received a used Amada LC 657 II with incomplete documentation? Was it this one: https://www.grays.com/lot/0001-3015605/manufacturi... If not, then there may be someone nearby to you who can help.

Anyhow I can see that Amada probably won't off free help for what seems must be an antique; probably they would offer a service contract and negotiate for the manual. I saw some dodgy sites supposedly offering a boot-leg copy, but won't link here for both reasons.

RE: Amada laser conditions settings

Japanese - that suggests it was a gray market machine.
I wonder if the control can be converted somehow to the US/North America ROMS /language.
I suppose the keyboard is also non-English?

Other than those 'little' problems it may be very similar to the LC667-II that was marketed in the US for many years. What laser resonator does it have? Which control, exactly?

(otherwise, it either becomes a parts machine, or snag the CNC and control panels from a 667 that's getting junked.)
