Can anyone teach me how to utilize some industrial servo motors?
I have acquired a couple nema 34 allen Bradley servo motors and want to use them in a home built cnc machine.
These are attached to top quality linear tracks. The bearing assembly is located inside long square tube aluminum and have heavy cogged belt drive.
The specs on these assemblies show little to no backlash or deflection over 7 feet length.
(My research shows these tracks are worth several thousand each. And i have several tracks with bearings)
That being said, i really want to get these operational on a easy level?
I have some experience with useing a shapeoko 2 machine with upgrades
I also have experience with useing a 3d printer, printerbot simple metal also with several upgrades.
I am very capable of mechanical fabrications ect, however the electronic controlling is my weakness.
- Will getting these servo motors working be too difficult?
- Should i consider nema 34 steppers instead?
The servo motor is (ab-n-3412-02-h00aa)
I believe its 3 phase?
( Looks like these cost around $2000 each)
I have the Mach program installed for a smaller cnc build project but haven’t used it yet.
Does anyone have any input or guidance that could help me out in regards to feasibility on this project?
Thanks in advance
