Anyone with a Velox 5050 with the 220V 3 Phase Tekno spindle want to post pictures of their VFD wiring?
Velox totally shipped a lemon with our machine. We can only run at 0 RPM or 18000 RPM, nothing in between. We get floating spindle speed values in Mach 3. It appears that ours has no signal bus wiring actually going from the controller to the VFD, it all just goes in and immediately back out to the spindle. Maybe we’re misunderstanding this thing, but that’s our running theory.
I’m highly suspecting that Velox quickly converted our machine from a 220V router to a 220V 3-phase spindle and crated it. No way this thing got the testing that they claim to do.
On top of all that, they shipped us an incorrect (and broken) dust hood and didn’t give us our VCarve seat. We also had to re-dress some of the home position switches because the cabling was wrapped AROUND the ball screws. Pretty darn sketchy…
Have to say I’m currently extremely disappointed in our purchase.
