  • Need Lots Of Help

    I was just given a Cordax 1808 MEA and told to set it up and figure out how to work it. The machine was used, supposedly works, comes with a box on a pole with a visual display that is also made by Gidding & Lewis as well as a computer with a "teach program". I have no manuals and no in structions. Does anyone know where toi find a manual(s)? The display shows only zeros.
    Any Help would be appreciated.

    We are going to need lots of help on this one. Any markings on the units such as model numbers etc would be a good start. You are in deep and asking a lot. What ever details you can give will be to your advantage.

      Where are you located?

        It's about time that you came out to play, today, Craiger.


        Yeah, he's right. You might want to contact the mfg. to get manuals. If your boss tells you no, tell him that they will be a requirement to using the machine in ANY possible way and that you will also need manuals for the software. If it is using Pcdmis, that shouldn't be a problem.

            It is Giddings & Lewis Sheffield Cordax 1808 CMM built in 1988, the display box is says Giddings & Lewis model number 58006619. The computer is a pentium II and has CMM Self Teach Software V 3. Right now I am just trying to get the display to work.

              DCC or Manual?

              Does the cable from the DRO hook up to the PC's serial port or to a card in one of the slots?

                That sounds like a Helmel software. I would have thought OFI/FLB software.

                  To get the display to show other than zeros you may need to home the machine and here is where knowing manual or DCC machine type would be good. If memory serves me (that's push'in it!) home is X to the left, Y to the front, and Z up. Give that a try, eh?

                    MEA would require homing, but he said "only shows zeros", wouldnt it show "Set Zero" in the Z display if it was waiting for a good homing....

                      I think you're right, yup, that was hoping for too much from the old memory nut.
