    Default integrex 200SY air issue

    I just got a integrex 200SY I been working on getting it set up.
    I have a 40 tool magazine and was attempting to load tools.
    I must have hit wrong button and now I have air escaping somewhere in machine.
    My Air compressor is marginal and after couple minutes I get "low air pressure" Alarm
    Any help appreciated it has a 640T controller
    Thanks

    A little more info would be helpful.

    When in milling mode (unclamped mill spindle) my machine will blow a lot of air in the milling head fore some reason. Try clamping the spindle and see if it goes silent.

    I would bet money it is the positive air purge on the spindle. This is normal and you are going to need a bigger air compressor.

    The air purge on and around the spindle (except through the spindle during toolchange) is almost non existent on my machine. I have the C6 spindle though, and KMZ might be different.

    But when in milling mode it blows ridiculous amount of air on the belts and an air-oil mist on the gear in the head. The 200SY Mk II does not have an integrated milling spindle and has gearing in the head instead of the whole motor.

    I have a 7.5 kW screw and it works quite hard to keep up with the air supply. Since I hate hearing the compressor work so much I have installed an adjustable valve on the supply of air to the belts and the gear. It was like a handheld airgun wide open. I refuse to have that amount of air blowing and the gears get well lubricated even when choked a bit.

    But even so, this machine is a big air consumer compared to anything I have experienced before and I could not get away with much less than the compressor I have now. So yeah, he probably need a bigger compressor.
