Good evening Phil,
I recently purchased my first mazak. It’s a 1995 qt15 with the mazatrol t plus controller. Long story short is the machine was sitting for 2 years due to original owner passing away. Is there anything that I can anticipate with it sitting for so long? (Corrupt parameters) also any recommendations on first start up would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
For sure, the batteries will be dead and all parameters will be gone. You will need to get a copy of the parameters and replacement batteries. I do not know off hand which batteries your machine will need.
You also need to make sure the transformer is set correctly for the voltage you are going to be feeding the machine and also to have the correct phase wiring. If the phase is backwards, the hydraulic pump will be running backwards and not generate pressure. Switch two of the three legs on the incoming machine wiring to get the pump making pressure. DO NOT switch the wires on the hydraulic pump itself.
I am not an expert in this generation machine. Please repost your question over on the Mazak area so it is more visible to those that can help.
