My Quad IVc's will also do the same thing. Mine are equipped with CyberOptics scanners, not QuadAlign. The Cyberoptics scanners do go bad and once they do, they get very warm to the touch and at the same time, if the Quad is reset, the theta axis wil

Check that the new vacuum tubing isn't restricting the theta rotation. It can "wrap" around the Midas head, if not secured properly.

Hey everyone, We use a MyData MY12 machine and we are experiencing a problem with the Midas head. I recently replaced a torn vacuum tube that goes on the zfib card. The machine worked perfectly for a day and a half but now MY12 has completely stoppe

Thanks all. I didn't check any further as I dont want to mess the midas head any further especially because I'm not sure how to take it out to work on it.

Hey Rob, I don't know where the MOT cards are located on MY12 or how to change them. Do you have any documentation or instructions on how to change the MOT cards?

From what I remember, shut off machine, unplug cable/hose, unscrew 4 screws and the head is out.

Start by checking cables. Odd that the C-motor would initialize, but, then, theta fails when you move the Z-motor. Sounds like something's got a loose connection somewhere. Possibly in the connector going into the C-motor. If that's a no-go, try

I am assuming you are initializing each motor individually through the service program. The z motor theta is hard to see so I put a mark on it with a colored marker so you can watch if the midas tool nozzle is actually turning or not. You should be a

Hmm...that's a good point, Bilal. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure where the MOT cards are in the MY series (or if they're still using MOT cards the way the TP series did). In the TP's, they were in the computer bay on the left hand side of the
