  • Not recalling probe or alignments...

    We recently had one of our machines re-calibrated. Ever since the BnS guy left, our usual electrode checking system hasn't worked. Basically, we have a 3R system chuck clamped to the surface plate and we have an alignment program to pickup the chuck. Anytime we do a probe change (manually) we have to re-calibrate the ball AND re-do the fixture alignment manually. If we don't, the machine will crash into the table!

    We used to just change the tip, and recalibrate the probe, now we have to go through our whole setup process.

    This is on a MicroExcel pfx uha, with a tp-200 tip.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like you might have to go into the machine interface and reset the calibration position to zero's and then re-teach the calibration tool. You have to have admin rights to the computer to do this. I'm not sure if that's the problem but we had a similar issue once. Do you have to manually calibrate every tip? Can't see getting very good tip qualifications that way.

      How do I get to machine interface and what exactly do I need to change???

        I remember doing this in the settings editor. Set X, Y & Z of the calibration sphere to zero or leave blank - it's been a while.

          Or something simpler - check your search paths for your probes and programs.

            Or something simpler. Call the B&S tech back in to fix what he f'd up.

              Don't know if that would be simpler but it'd be the right way!
