I'm not sure,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

H/T to Bob in KY

Good ol' boy.. Time to retire...

  1991 Kitamura that has been on the floor since 2005.  

I saved it from being scrapped back then.

It needed some various missing parts and through the years we have rebuilt the table clamping system for the pallets as well as air lines, hydraulic lines and wiring. Mag starters and relays were updated as well as memory and option parameters. The Fanuc OM-C is a good basic
control but doesn't compare to the new generation controls with high feed, contour control
and processing speed.

Finally it has gotten too tired and re-doing the turcite on the box ways is not cost effective.
That is one of the downfalls of the box way system although they are very rugged.

The new generation linear rail machines only need grease/oil as maintenance.

Off it goes to the be returned as something else made from the cast iron and steel.
