DWX-53DC - Part Names and Functions

Front

 


DWX-53DC_Front
 1 Milling area coverCovers the milling area. Workpieces are milled in the milling area. It is also a location where machine maintenance, such as cleaning and collet replacement, is performed. *1
 2 Adapter area coverCovers the adapter area. Adapters are installed in and removed from the disc changer in the adapter area. *2
 3 Tool area coverCovers the tool area. Milling burs used in milling and detection pins are loaded in the ATC magazine in the tool area.*1
 4 Built-in panelThe LED lights on the built-in panel display the status of the machine. When the machine is connected to a dust collector with built-in linking function, pressing the touch sensor with a cover open turns the dust collector on.
 5 Tablet baseUse this part when operating the machine with a tablet. When using a tablet, use the included tablet holders and cushions.
 6 Bottom storageUse this area to store items such as replacement tools and maintenance parts.

*1 For safety, the machine stops if this cover is opened during operation.
*2 For safety, the machine stops if this cover is opened during adapter replacement.

Milling Area

 


DWX-53DC_MillingAreaCover
 1 IonizerThe ionizer works to eliminate static electricity from milling waste when cutting PMMA. This makes it easier for the milling waste to move away from the material during milling, which has the effect of maintaining the milling quality. *3
 2 Status lightThis light is linked with the status light at the top of the machine and indicates the status of the machine with its color and depending on whether it is lit or flashing.
 3 CameraThe camera allows the milling status of the machine to be checked from VPanel. When the camera settings are configured, recording starts at the same time as milling. Images are automatically saved only when an error occurs. The images are useful in checking the milling status and in identifying the causes of errors.
 4 Rotary axis unitRotates the adapter to which the material to mill is attached, allowing the milling bur to cut the material according to the CAM data sent to the machine.
 5 ClampRemoves the specified adapter from the adapter magazine and holds this adapter until milling is complete.

*3 To obtain the optimal ionizer effect, ground this machine. RELATED LINKS

Adapter Area

 


DWX-53DC_AdapterAreaCover
 1 Adapter stocker numberDisplays the adapter stocker number. Each number has a disc stocker light to indicate the status of the machine and of the adapter installed in the stocker.
 2 Adapter magazineLoad adapters, in which the pre-milling workpieces and automatic correction jigs have been set, here. Up to six adapters can be loaded in the machine. When milling data is sent from the computer, the clamp automatically grips the adapter loaded in the magazine, and milling starts.
 3 Adapter stockerInstall adapters, in which workpieces have been loaded, and automatic correction jigs here.

 1 Milling bur stockersLoad the milling burs and detection pins to use in milling and correction here.
 2 Milling bur sensorJudges whether the amount of extension of the milling bur gripped by the spindle unit is appropriate. To maintain good sensor accuracy, clean this part periodically.
 3 ATC magazineTransports milling burs and detection pins used in milling to the spindle unit. When milling data is sent from the PC, the spindle unit grips the milling bur in the stocker with the specified number, and milling starts.
 4 Maintenance coverCovers the aperture used for machine maintenance such as spindle unit and spindle belt replacement.
 5 Spindle belt*4Conveys the rotation of the spindle motor to the spindle unit. The spindle belt is a part that wears out. To maintain highly accurate milling quality, replace it at the appropriate time.
 6 Spindle unit*4Conveys the rotation of the spindle belt to the milling bur. The spindle unit is a part that wears out. To maintain highly accurate milling quality, replace it at the appropriate time.
 7 Air nozzleDischarges compressed air during milling to blow milling waste away from the workpiece.
 8 Collet*4This part is attached to the tip of the spindle unit and grips the milling bur or detection pin used in milling and correction. The collet is a part that wears out. To maintain highly accurate milling quality, replace it at the appropriate time.

 4 USB connectorUse this connector to connect the USB cable between this machine and the computer.
 5 Tablet cable insertion portPass the cables used to connect this machine and the tablet through this port. Pull the tablet base toward you, and then pull the cables from the aperture on the right side.
 6 Power switchTurns the machine's power on and off.
 7 Power cord connectorConnect the supplied power cord to this connector.
 8 Dust collection hose attachment portAttach the dust collection hose to this port. Attach the dust collection hose included with the dust collector you are using.

Statuses Indicated by Status Light Color

 

 

Status Lights at the Top of the Machine and in the Milling Area

 

To ensure that operators can determine the status of the machine whether they are right next to it or far away, one status light is provided in the milling area () and another on the top of the machine (). These two synchronized lights display the status of the machine.

BlueLitThe machine is in standby. To reduce power consumption, if no operation is performed for 30 seconds while the machine is in standby, the machine will change to the sleep status, and the status lights will turn off.
FlashingThe machine is undergoing the initial operation after it turns on. Alternatively, maintenance such as automatic correction and spindle run-in is in progress.
WhiteLitMilling is being performed or has been paused or the milling area cover or tool area cover is open.
FlashingThe dust collector is in standby.
YellowLitAn error has occurred during milling, and the machine has been paused. Check the error details shown on VPanel. Press the touch sensor on the built-in panel to resume milling.
Flashing

An error occurred during adapter replacement, and the machine has restarted. Follow the instructions displayed in VPanel to remove the adapter.

Red

When lit or flashing in red, an error has occurred and milling has been stopped. Milling cannot be resumed.

LitHold down the touch sensor on the built-in panel to cancel milling and return the machine to the ready status.
FlashingTurn the machine off, and then restart it.
OffThe status lights turn off when the machine is in the sleep state or the power is turned off.
