Can somebody tell me a thing or two about this AC servo/stepper motor (mitsubishi)? Answered
Hey I'm planning on building a mini/desktop-ish CNC milling machine, so I've started gathering materials for the building of it (when ever i stumple upon a great deal :) )
SO I've got this big Mitsubishi AC servo/ stepper motor (from a real industrial CNC machine) it's not working (that's why I got it for free)
I'm trying to disassemble it to see if it's something fixable (for me)...
It's divided into two compartments
the first "chamber" contains the elctronics; (looks like an optic sensor and some other stuff)... well IT WAS FILLED WITH OIL!?
that surprises me since my logic sense tells me that electronics and liquids don't mix? is it supposed to be filled with oil or could that be the reason why it doesn't work? (the electronics/ chamber 1 is pic 4-6)
I can't disassemble it any further... even thoug i can't se any more screws... has anyone done something like that before and can tell me how to proceed? (btw. I'm pretty sure the second (and last) "chamber" contains the stators and the actual motor parts..)
someone please help me... It would be a REALLY nice start of a hobby CNC milling machine project to get a strong, professional and WORKING stepper motor :D so come with all the inputs you can think of.
will be greatly appreciated! (sorry for the no so good pictures..)
