This KOMO On-Site Maintenance Training is a 1-1/2 day course is designed to provide an overview of machine operation for maintenance personnel. Trainees spend the majority of their time at a fully functional CNC machine, and are required to set up the machine and run several sample part programs. A qualified CNC machine instructor is present to direct the class and answer questions. Instruction is provided in short segments, which allow trainees to absorb and act upon the instructions one piece at a time. At the conclusion of this class trainees have the ability to run a machine in Manual mode and to enter simple programs to facilitate machine testing.
- WELCOME / INTRODUCTION
- KOMO Informational Session Tour the Komo Machine facility. Receive a brief history of KOMO Machine, Inc. and take a look at our product lines.
- Machine Overview Discuss basic machine operation, machine safety and observe machine movements.
- Operator Console / Basic Machine Operation Students receive information about the layout and operation of the console. All areas such as the display screen, keyboard(s), control panel and other devices are covered. Students learn to start up and shut down the machine, home the tool changer, jog machine axes, and use MDI (Manual Data Input) to execute programming codes.
- Coordinate Systems Cover the five coordinate systems that are instrumental to machine operations: Machine, Work, Absolute, Relative and Local. Learn the programming codes associated with each coordinate system.
- G Code Programs Use Word Pad and the control to open, read and modify G code programs. Learn to search through the program for the machine setup variables. Instructor explains the operation of each G code command word used for machine setup.
- Hands-On Machine Operation Set up work coordinates and tool offsets for all machine components, such as spindles, drill banks and aggregate tools. Examine the difference between negative and positive tool offsets; automatic touch probe. Learn different methods of loading and running programs, and how to test and run programs safely by single blocking (one step at a time).Discuss recovery procedures that can be used in case of programming error.Locate and explain use of safety devices.
- Machine Options Discuss the operation of the optional controls and/or equipment installed on each machine. Some common options are programmable air blast, spindle counter-clockwise, twin table operation, tool length measurement, C axis and remote pedestal.
- Tooling Describe the components used to assemble a tool: tool holding block, tool holding clamp, tool presetter stand, tool torque wrench and a digital presetter. Learn the correct methods of cleaning, handling, and assembly of all tool components such as retention knobs, tool chuck, collet, collet nut and cutting tool using the tool assembly components. Learn to use the digital presetter to accelerate the process of setting up tool offsets.
- Vacuum Hold Down System Examine the entire vacuum system, consisting of the vacuum pump, vacuum prefilter, piping and connections, vacuum manifold and table. Learn how to read and interpret the vacuum gauges so that the correct amount of vacuum is directed to the material to be cut with both flow-through technology and fixture boards.
The KOMO On-Site Mechanical Maintenance is a 1-1/2 day course is designed to develop competent machine technicians. Trainees will spend their time at a fully functional CNC machine. A qualified CNC machine instructor is present to direct the class and answer questions. Instruction is provided in short segments, which allow trainees to absorb and act upon the instructions one piece at a time. Majority of class time is spent in hands-on learning.
- Component Terminology The participant will use drawings, diagrams, machine parts and a machine tool to learn to identify various machine components and understand the function they perform. This discussion will include safety considerations, devices and locations.
- Machine Maintenance Discussion of the routine maintenance procedures necessary to keep the machine functioning at peak performance will include maintenance requirements, lubrication points etc.
- Mechanical Components An overview of basic mechanical components, such as ball screws, bearings, the pneumatic system and spindles. Participants will perform actual procedures for replacing major components, checking alignment and making adjustments to ensure proper cutting operation of the machine.
The KOMO On-Site Electrical Maintenance 1-1/2 day course is designed to develop competent machine technicians. Trainees will spend their time at a fully functional CNC machine. A qualified CNC machine instructor is present to direct the class and answer questions. Instruction is provided in short segments, which allow trainees to absorb and act upon the instructions one piece at a time. Majority of class time is spent in hands-on learning.
- Alarms and Messages A look at machine alarms and messages, what they mean, how to correct them and how to clear the alarm.
- Electrical Components We’ll look at the electrical layout of the machine, learn how to read machine schematics and get an overview of basic electrical operation. Participants will be presented with exercises and hands-on scenarios to help them understand some of the electrical circuitry in the machine. Major electrical components such as servos, servo amplifiers, inverters and power supplies will be discussed.
- Electrical Component Maintenance, Replacement and Repair Some electrical components can be maintained, repaired or replaced by the customer. Participants will receive instructions regarding procedures for adjustment, calibration etc. as appropriate.Preventive maintenance procedures and schedules will be explained.
- Control An overview of the control, basic parameter settings and advanced maintenance functions. Topics for discussion include setting parameters, reading diagnostics and other advanced control features.
- Troubleshooting by Diagnostics When participants are comfortable with navigating within the control and understand the electrical schematics, they will be presented with a ‘bugged’ machine to help them further understand machine functions and how to use the control to diagnose the problem.
- Service and Warranty An explanation of the machine warranty and an introduction to the Customer Service department, with an explanation of available services, part shipment capabilities and Komo’s 24-hour technical phone support.
- Review and Questions Ample time will be allowed for questions from participants and review of course material.
