Course information

This is a practical course aimed at Mills CNC customers who have Fanuc-controlled Doosan single-single lathes or similar Fanuc-controlled single-spindle lathes manufactured by other machine tool builders.

The course will appeal to companies who have an in-house Machine Tool Maintenance or Service Department and need to increase the skill levels of their employees, thus enabling them to plan and undertake systematic trouble-shooting and preventative mechanical maintenance on Fanuc-controlled single-spindle lathes.

To get the most from this course it is important that attendees have experience of machine tools' mechanical operation and CNC controls systems and functions.

Specific course content includes:

  • Explanation of turret indexing mechanism
  • Identification of components and their replacement -: spindle, bearing assembly etc.
  • Position encoder replacement
  • Alignment procedure for spindles and turret
  • Grid shift and backlash adjustment
  • Axes assembly - X, Z and (Y)
  • Ballscrew gib alignment
  • Motor and pulse coder replacement procedure
  • Bearing replacement procedure
  • Tool setter operation and calibration
  • Touch sensor replacement
  • Lubrication system
  • Flow rate checking and flow unit replacement
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Wiper inspection
  • Belt inspection and adjustment
  • Oil level checking and cooling fan inspection.

This course is run at the Mills Mills CNC Training Academy's facility in Leamington or can be held at a customer's facility.

This course is practical with a significant proportion of time spent training on a Fanuc-controlled single-spindle lathe. As a consequence, if training is required at a customer's facility, it is important that attendees have unrestricted access to a Fanuc-controlled single-spindle lathe.
