USER INTERFACE TERMINAL
The Eagle Conveyor gantry is controlled by the UIT (User Interface Terminal) located on the operator
side of the gantry. After plotting a marker file from the computer, the UIT allows the user to operate the
machine from the gantry. With it‘s touch screen keypad and 4 line display, the operator can easily
home the table, zero the panel or begin cutting a file. The text display shows the current status of the
cutter as well as any error messages.
Commands are sent to the plotter by pressing specific keys or key sequences on the UIT. The UIT has
preset menu keys along the left side of the screen and preset function keys on the right side. The
function keys are the most commonly used functions for operating the machine. The menu option
toggles between the (5) touch screen menus depending on the desired functions. The Keypad menu
allows the user to input requested information using a standard keyboard interface.
The menus are as follows:
Main Menu: This is the menu that is displayed at power-up.
Key Board: Key layout is similar to a computer keyboard with letters and numbers.
Cut Menu: Keys generally used while operating the machine.
Tool Menu: This menu has functions related to operating the tools manually.
Options: Allows operator to manually input some commands.
Besides the touch screen, other controls on the gantry include an Emergency Stop Button/Lamp, a
Pause Button/Lamp, and a Tools On/Off Button/Lamp.

The “Enter” button is used the same as the enter key on a computer to accept inputs. This key is also
used to reset the cutter if an error occurs. The UIT Error Message will say “Press Enter to Clear the
Fault”.
Zero Table
Pressing this button homes the gantry by moving each axis (X, Y and Theta) one at a time until they hit
their respective home switches. This will square the Gantry as well as return each axis to its known
starting point.
WARNING
The "Zero Table" key must be pressed each time the system is Powered Up, Easicut is started or an E-STOP is
activated. Failure to Zero Table can result in the Gantry and/or Y-car traveling past table limits and crashing into
end stops.

Key Board Menu
The Key Board menu works like a standard computer keyboard and is used to enter Option Codes
when in Option Mode or can be used to enter requested information. (See Figure 2)
Option Button
The OPTION Button changes the touch screen to Option Mode. This allows the operator to enter a two
digit/letter option code to change machine settings. Changes made using the options commands are
temporarily saved but are lost as the plotter program is exited. Permanent change must be made in the
"Machine" menu by clicking on Options/Machine in Easicut. To use the option commands, press the
OPTION key on the keyboard page. The display will then prompt for a two-letter option code. After
typing the two letter command press the ENTER key and you will be prompted for a value or the action
will take place immediately. If prompted, input the new value and press the ENTER key again. (Note:
Use the enter key in the keyboard screen on the touch screen, not the Enter button on the side of the
touch screen.)
NOTE
If you do not enter a new value and press the ENTER key, the current value is maintained. Option
codes values can also be entered on the computer keyboard in the plotter status window. The two letter
option codes are not case sensitive.
(AA) Change Acceleration: Sets the acceleration rate of the gantry.
(AB) Airbrush On/Off: Activates and deactivates airbrush option. (If available.)
(BB) Layer Names On/Off: Toggles the layers names command on or off. With layer names turned off
this allows CMD file formats that reference CUTN and CUTF commands to be compatible with the new
motion control software.
(CC) Change Laser Max Power: For laser plotters only, it sets the maximum power for the laser.
Expressed as a number between 0.0 and 1.0. This will adjust the cutting CURP for specific cut speeds.
It should never be set above 0.95. This command is only available on machines that have a laser
cutting tool. (Not the laser pointer)
(DD) Digitizing Mode On/Off: Enters or exits the pattern digitizing mode. (See the section on Digitizing
in the EasiCut manual.)
(EE) Change Overall Rate: (Not Used)
(FF) Laser Service Modes On/Off: For laser cutting machines only. Sets the software mode to enable
several power and alignment tests. (Not for laser pointers)
(GG) Load Cut File: This command loads the current CMD file active in the Easicut window to the
plotter file for cutting. This is the same as plotting the file through the Easicut software from the
computer terminal.
Form E-541

(HH) Change Slow Speed: Sets the slow JOG speed of the gantry, Y-car and Z-axis. This command
can be used to slow down the gantry when trying to jog the laser pointer to a fixed point on the table.
(Is the same as the
(II) Change Time Interval: Sets the update interval for the motion control card. There is no reason
ever to adjust this value except during calibration of the M9000 system at the factory. Changing this
variable will result in inaccuracies in cutting.
(KK) Key Dump On/Off: Enables or disables the key dump feature. Key dump is normally off. With it
turned on the signature of the key pressed is displayed on the computer's screen. This is a valuable
diagnostic tool that helps troubleshoot UIT keypad problems.
(LL) Change Cut Speed: Sets the top speed during manual use of the primary tool. Changing this
variable does not effect the cutting speed when cutting in automatic mode.
(NN) Next: After plotting a file, this command starts the machine cutting the active panel. Like pressing
NEXT on the UIT this can be typed into the Plotter Status window at the computer.
(OO) Options: Allows the operator to enter the "Options Mode" of the UIT from the computer terminal.
This command is only available from the computer keyboard and duplicates the OPTION key on the
UIT.
(PP) Pause On/Off: Toggles on or off any <PAUSE> command within the current CMD file. With
pauses turned off the plotter will move from panel to panel without prompting for the NEXT command.
This feature works in conjunction with CMD files that have pre-designated pauses in the file for product
inspection. (This is not related to the pause buttons on the gantry.)
(QQ) Exit Plotter W: Exits the Easicut program. When reopening Easicut the table must be homed by
pressing the ZERO TABLE button on the UIT keypad. Failure to home the system will result in the
gantry running into the end stops and/or causing damage to the system.
(RR) Set CMD repetitions: Sets the number of times to repeat the current CMD file. Note that the next
repetition of the CMD file will start from the plotter position at the end of the last repetitions of the CMD
file. When repetitions are used zero marks are disabled.
(SS) Change Scale Factor: Sets the scale factor of the current CMD file. This allows user to expand or
contract the size of the entities within a CMD file by an input coefficient. For example entering a value
of 0.5 will yield parts 50% of normal, therefore entering a 2.0 will yield parts twice the normal size.
(TT) Change Laser Minimum Speed: Available on M90 Laser cutting machines only. Sets the
minimum speed at which the laser tube will fire. This is useful for reducing cutting CURP as the gantry
decelerates to a stop. If set to high, the parts may not be cut all the way to intersections.
(UU) Tools On/Off: Toggles the primary tool on or off. Works like Tool On/Off switch.
(VV) Speed Change: Sets the top speed during dry haul when the machine is neither marking nor
cutting. It’s the speed that the machine moves between cuts.
16
Form E-541
(WW) Pen Speed Change: Sets the top speed during manual use of the pen device. Pressing the
Option button followed by WW will change the speed that the pen will mark in manual mode. The pen
must be down and the gantry jogged before it takes effect.
(YY) Reference Mark On/Off: Toggles all zero marks in a CMD file either on or off. Note that it affects
both the <MARK> command and <VMARK> command present in many CMD files.
(ZP) Zero panel: Sets the current gantry and Y-car position as the panel home position. The cutter will
use this position as it's zero reference point when cutting a file. (See ZERO PANEL button.)
(ZT) Zero Table: This does the same function as the ZERO TABLE key on the touch screen. By typing
this command into the Plotter Status window on the computer, you can zero the table without walking
over to the gantry.
(ZZ) Set Display Units: Toggles the UIT and computer display between different units of
measurements like inches (IN), feet (FT), centimeters (CM). The current units setting is indicated in the
upper right corner of the display.
(11) X Offset Change: Sets the X offset of the primary tool from the reference laser pointer. Setting the
Offset from the UIT or Plotter Status screen is only temporary while the system is powered. The cutter
will default to the original settings after software is exited or system is powered down. All offset setting
need to be made on the calibration screen or in the Option/Machine menu to be permanently saved.
(22) Y Offset Change: Sets the Y offset of the primary tool from the reference laser pointer. Setting the
Offset from the UIT or Plotter Status screen is only temporary while the system is powered. The cutter
will default to the original settings after software is exited or system is powered down. All offset setting
need to be made on the calibration screen or in the Option/Machine menu to be permanently saved.
(33) Z Offset Change: Sets the rotational offset of the primary tool from the sensing point. Setting the
Offset from the UIT or Plotter Status screen is only temporary while the system is powered. The cutter
will default to the original settings after software is exited or system is powered down. All offset setting
need to be made on the calibration screen or in the Option/Machine menu to be permanently saved.
(44) Cut Up Time Change: Set the time delay from when the tool up command is set and the gantry
begins to move. This prevents the gantry from moving and catching material while the tool is moving
up.
(55) Cut Down Time Change: Set the time delay from when the tool down command is set and the
gantry begins to move. This prevents the gantry from moving and catching material while the tool is
moving down.

Other UIT Controls
Emergency Stop Button/Lamp
When the Emergency Stop button is pressed the Gantry will decelerate to a stop and power will be cut
to all axis of motion. The Stop Buttons are 12 VDC normally closed switches and are located on both
the operator and non operator sides of the gantry as well as at each end of the machine. After releasing
the emergency stop the gantry must be "Homed" before proceeding. When the Emergency Stop Button
is pressed, an LED light inside the button turns on. If the LED is lit, check each emergency stop button
to make sure they are pulled out.
CAUTION
Hitting the E-stop repeatedly can cause the heat thermisters in the High Voltage power supply to heat-up
and shut down. The result is no DC power to the amplifiers and either an “X1 Amp Fault” or and “Estop” condition. The power supply will restart after cooling for approximately ten minutes.
Pause Button/Lamp
The "Pause Buttons" are generally used to pause a cutting operation to clear material, make
adjustments, inspect work, etc. Pausing the machine stops all axes of motion but does not cut power to
the amplifiers. The servo motors are powered and maintain position. Yellow pause paddles are located
on each side of the Gantry as well as pause buttons on the gantry and at each end of the machine. To
resume cutting simply press the NEXT key on the gantry keypad and the program will resume where it
left off. When the Pause Button is pressed, an LED light inside the button turns on. If the LED is lit,
check each of the pause buttons and paddles to make sure they are not active.
Tool On/Off Switch/Lamp
Turns the tool head on and off and can be toggled at any time during machine operation. The tool head
can be turned off to prevent the tools from coming down during test runs or cut simulations. When the
tools are turned on, an LED light inside the button turns on.

Software File Relationships
Easicut is Eastman’s proprietary plotter software used to interface and operate the Eagle Conveyor.
The software is Windows NT, 2000 or XP compatible and can read a variety of data files types
including dxf and cmd files. Easicut stores all the Eagle Conveyor machine settings in as few as three
files. (Machine.ini, Material.ini, Easicut.job and any file that ends in .job) These data files are ASCII text
files with specific formats, which must be correct to be read. Some files can be viewed in Microsoft
Notepad.
NOTE
It is highly recommended that the customer periodically back up the Machine.ini, Material.ini, Easicut.job and
any file ending in .job. These files should be stored on a floppy disk, flash drive, network drive or separate hard
drive. These files contain all machine settings and will save hours of set-up after a hard drive failure, virus or if
the files get corrupted. Files located in:
C:Program Files/Eastman/Easicut 2000 folder.
PLOTTER.KEY: Required on all machines using a UIT and on some older M90 models. This file
maps the keypad data coming from the UIT to the plotter program.
DESIGN.CMD:
These files contain the pattern coordinates and commands read by PLOTTERW.
The CMD file uses Eastman’s proprietary file format. Easicut automatically converts
several file formats to CMD files when opened.
MACHINE.INI:
Contains values pertaining to calibration, velocity profile, table dimensions and layer
to tool mapping. Easicut writes to this file as changes are saved to the Machine
Settings window. Changes to the Options/Machine menu will be saved to the
MACHINE.INI file.
PLOTTER.DRL: Required only when <DRILL> function is used in your CMD file. This file contains
default values used by <DRILL> function when specified in CMD files.
EASICUT.JOB:
Contains tool setting and cut file optimization information used when plotting and
cutting a job. The JOB settings are set in the Options/Job menu and stored in this
file. Multiple job files can be created and saved to cut different materials. The JOB
file settings take precedence over the MACHINE.INI settings.
MATERIAL.INI:
Contains tool information (pressure, speed, boost time, etc.) for different materials if
material files are used. The MATERIAL file temporarily overwrites the machine
settings in the MACHINE.INI and the EASICUT.JOB files.

Cutting Different Materials
When cutting a variety of different materials or patterns it is recommended to setup specific Job or
Material files. These files contain the cutting information setup required to cut that material.
Job File:
Different Job files are used to optimize the cut file depending on material type,
pattern size or shape, piece size, etc. Some files may require removing common
lines, removing edge cuts, or changing tool pressure, cut velocity, etc. By creating
different job files you can optimize the job file based on the file and/or the material to
be cut.
Material File:
A unique Material file can be created for each material type. When loading a cut file
the operator also opens the corresponding material file. Each Material file contains
the Tool, Cut Speed, Tool Pressure, Boost Down Time and Overcut. This simplifies
the setup when changing between several different materials.
1. Spread the material on the conveyor, making sure it is straight and parallel with the X-axis.
2. Change tools or adjust the blade exposure for new material. (Only required if material is a
different thickness then previous material.)
3. In the Easicut software open the file to be cut.
4. Turn on the conveyor vacuum.
5. Jog the belt for approximately 12 inches (30 cm) to remove any slack in the belt.

CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
The following Eagle Conveyor calibration procedures are used to calibrate the machine so each piece
is cut to the correct size and shape. The tool calibrations ensure each tool is calibrated to one another
and the accuracy of cuts between different tools. The calibrations are initially done at machine
installation and should and only needs to be recalibrated if there is a cutting problem or modifications to
the tool head. The calibration numbers are stored in the Machine.ini and Easicut.job files in the Easicut
2000 directory.
The Eagle Conveyor calibrations should be performed in the following order:
1. Pen X-Y Offset (Calibrates the pen to the laser pointer)
2. Size Calibration (Calibrates the size in both the X and Y axes)
3. Square Calibration (Aligns the gantry square to the table)
4. Mount Theta Calibration (Straightens the Theta angle of each knife to the cut)
5. Mount XY Calibration (Aligns each tool to the pen (and laser pointer) in the X and Y axes.)
6. Cut Normal Calibration (Aligns the tool offset when cutting from either direction)
7. Tool Calibration (Circles/Squares – Adjusts the over and under cut of each tool.)
8. Punch Calibration (Aligns the punches to the cut lines.) Punches are optional tool.
9. V-Notch Calibration (Aligns the V-Notch punch to cut lines) V-Notch is an optional tool.
10. Gantry to Conveyor Calibration (Calibrates the gantry movement to conveyor movement)
Before beginning calibration procedures:
- Clear all material from conveyor surface
- Open Easicut software and “Zero the Table”
- Click on Options/Job and the “Preference” tab and change units to centimeters.
- Set tool blade depth’s to material and masking tape thickness.

The Gantry to Conveyor Calibration synchronizes the conveyor movement to the gantry. This ensures
that the gantry and conveyor are moving at the same speed and distance when the conveyor is pulling
material and the gantry is cutting. If this calibration is off it can cause piece size problems or damage
the belt.
Gantry to Conveyor Calibration Procedure:
a)
b)
c)
d)
Press the Cut Menu screen on the UIT.
Turn on the vacuum and jog the belt a few feet.
Click on the “Sync” button in the UIT Cut Menu.
Using the UIT “Jog” buttons move the gantry all the way to the feed side of table with the
tool head down by the operator.
e) Place a piece of masking tape under the laser pointer and make an X with a pen on the
laser dot.
f) Click the “Sync Jog” button in the lower right corner of the UIT. The gantry and belt will
move down the table together. Make sure you release the “Jog” button before gantry gets
to table limits.
g) Watch the penned “X” with respect to the laser pointer. If the laser moves ahead of the X,
increase the Conv. Calibration. If the laser falls behind the X then decrease the Conv.
Calibration.
h) If the laser pointer moves ahead or behind the “X” adjust the Conveyor Calibration.
i) Click on Options/Machine then the “Size” tab.

Replacing Cutting Belt
The following procedure provides step by step instructions for removing and installing a new Eagle
Conveyor cutting belt. In some cases where the belt is in good condition but the vacuum holes are
clogged or closed, it may be possible to re-perforate the belt with new holes to give it a second life. If
the belt is going to be re-perforated it is important to cut the belt down the existing seam. Contact
Eastman Machine for feasibility and pricing to reperf a belt.
Required Tools:
(4) 10” C-Clamps
(4+) Quick Grip Clamps
(1) Belt Seam Kit
(1) Thin tipped Heat Gun
(1) Hand grinder with grinding pads
(1) Plastic drop cloth to cover belt surface.
Heavy Weights, cinder blocks, heavy bags, or something heavy to lay across seam.
1.
Remove the old belt by powering up the machine and jogging the belt until the seam is centered on
the table. Move the gantry to the take on side of machine and close Easicut. With a utility knife
and straight edge cut the belt along the existing seam.
2.
Once the belt is removed, move the tension rollers (Take-on Side) all the way in towards the table
surface. You must first loosen the (4) bearings block bolts for the roller then use the adjusting nuts
to move the roller in.
Form E-541
55
Eastman

3.
Place new belt on table and unroll about 10 feet (3 meters) at a time. Feed the belt around each
roller under the table and up around the drive roller. When laying out the belt the bottom part of
the skive needs to be on the take up-end of the conveyor and the top part of the skive needs to be
on the drive end (take off side). Position the seam of the belt in the middle of the table.
4.
Once the belt is in the approximate position, work on the bottom skive side first. Position the entire
edge of the belt on the table up against the aluminum angle. (Operator side) This is critical for
creating a straight reference line for the entire belt. Clamp the belt into place at the corners of the
conveyor to keep it from moving.
5.
Go to the skived area of the belt and put plywood down near the edge. Clamp the belt down with
10” C-clamps over the plywood so the belt is not damaged. Make sure the C-clamps are only
putting pressure on the aluminum extrusion and not the plenums.
56
Form E-541
6.
Place the wax paper supplied with the seam kit under the skive.
7.
Now the drive roller will be needed to push the other end of the belt towards the seam so it can be
properly spaced. Someone will need to press the belt against the drive roller while another person
operates the MEI software. Have Quick Grip Clamps ready at the corners of the machine to lock
belt into place quickly.
8.
Open then close Easicut.
Then open the MEI software located in at C:Program
Files/Eastman/Easicut 2000/MEI Console/ MC_DSP_NT.exe. Click on Controller 0x320, Axis 0 for
the conveyor motor.
Form E-541
57
Eastman

10. Highlight Controller 1 then double click on Axis 0. This will open up the Motion Configuration menu
that allows you to operate the belt drive roller manually. This will be used to help drive the belt to
close the gap between the two ends.
Set-up Parameters:
•
•
•
•
58
Click on “Relative Move” and set incremental count to -10,000 counts/unit. (This is equivalent to
about 1 inch (2.54 cm) of belt movement. This can be mad larger or smaller as required.
Set “Delay” to 1 sec between moves.
Set Velocity to 20000 cnts/sec and Acceleration to 40,000 cnts/secs2 (cnts = encoder counts)
Use the Play button “►” at the bottom of the window to move belt. Each time the button is
pushed the conveyor roller will move.
Form E-541
11. Only move the belt in small increments when seam space is beginning to close. You can adjust the
Increment (Counts) smaller if required. Once the seam is in approximate position, the belt edge
needs to be positioned along the operator side aluminum rail to complete the belt alignment along
the edge of the machine.
12. The gap between belt ends should be 1/16” to 1/8” wide and should be even the entire length of the
seam. On wider belts the gap in the middle may be slightly wider then the gap at the ends but
every effort should be taken to make them as even as possible.
NOTE
The gap should not start small and get continuously wider from one side of the table to the other. This
will make the belt to be out of square and cause belt tracking problems.
13. Once the gapping is correct put clamps on the belt at the corners of the conveyor and then put
down plywood and clamp the belt about 3 feet away from the skived end so that it can be flipped
back.
14. Once the top skive side of the belt is in place, put plastic on both halves of the machine and turn on
the vacuum. Before gluing pull the top skive back and let it fall back into place. The gap should
remain the same and edge of the belt should still be a straight line. Do this a couple of times to
double check. If this does not happen the repeat steps 7-11.
Form E-541
59
Eastman

15. Located on the belt are several lines from when the belt was skived. Make sure the lines line up
between the top and bottom skive sides of the belt.
16. Flip the top skive away the bottom skive to prepare for applying the belt adhesive. Make sure there
is the wax paper under both skive sections before applying the glue.
CAUTION
Make sure the belt is properly fed through the machine prior to gluing the seam. Once the glue is
applied the only way to remove the belt is to cut it off.
17. Open the belt seam kit and mix the hardener to the adhesive. (If the adhesive is filled too high you
may have to pour a little out before adding the hardener.) Measure the hardener in the small vile
provided and pour it into the adhesive. (One vile per can of adhesive)
18. Cover the Belt with two pieces of plastic leaving the seam visible.
60
Form E-541
19. Using the paintbrush apply a healthy coating of adhesive to the bottom skive then to the top skive.
Apply a second thinner coat to both ends. Make sure the entire skive is coated with no bare spots.
Both coats should be applied within ½ hour.
20. Flip the top skive down to meet the bottom skive. Once the two ends meet they can not be
separated. Take the provided seam roller and roll the seam down to compress the glue. Then put
heavy weights on the seam and let dry overnight. (Minimum 12 - 16 hours)
21. If possible turn the vacuum on with the plastic down for a few hours to hold the belt into place as
adhesive dries.
22. Before welding the belt seam, practice on a scrap piece if possible. It is best to use a hot air gun
with a small ¼” tip to apply a narrow air flow. The weld stick should be held over the gap and
melted so that it flows into the gap. Make sure the weld seam is higher than the two sides of the
belt.
Form E-541
61
Eastman

23. Let the seam cool before grinding. With a hand grinder, grind the weld as level as possible with the
belt surface. This will eliminate any hangers when cutting material over the seam. Let the seam
cool before grinding.
24. It is time to re-tension the belt by ¼ percent. Measure 100 cm on both the operator and nonoperator sides of the belt. Use a piece of tape and a pen line to mark the 100 cm. Using the belt
tension roller stretch the belt until the measurement reads 100.25 cm on both the operator and nonoperator side of the belt. (100 inches can also be used with a stretch to 100-1/4 inch)
62
Form E-541
25. Run the belt continuously. Make sure that the belt tracks away from the edge control sensor.
When the belt moves off the sensor, the steering roller should actuate and force the belt back
towards the sensor.

Pressure Transducer Calibration
The pressure transducer regulates the tool pressure and is set through the Easicut Software. The
pressure for each tool is set in Easicut and transmitted via a 4-20 mA signal sent from the Multifunction
Board to the transducer. It is important to calibrate the transducer to ensure the tool pressure is
correct.
1. Set main pressure regulator to
100-125 psi by turning
regulator knob.

is pointing to the outside of gantry for easy access.
Slide the bearing and bearing block unto the linear rail. Be careful not to damage the bearing seals
when mounting on the rail.
Position the bearing and bearing block directly under each of the backlash adjusting screws and
replace the 10-32 screws through the side plate and into the bearing blocks. Do not fully tighten
screws until the backlash is adjusted.
Begin adjusting the backlash adjusting screws to raise the gantry. Use a level to make sure that
both blocks on each side plate are adjusted level to each other.
Adjust the backlash adjusting screws until the X-axis spur gear is fully engaged into the gear rack.
Pull back and forth on the X-axis belt and make sure that there is no backlash between the gear
and gear rack. (The gantry should move immediately when changing belt direction. The gantry
should move easily without a dead spot.)
Tighten the 10-32 screws holding the bearing block to the side plate and recheck the backlash.
Re-adjust the backlash if necessary.

Abort Y Axis Fault
Abort Z Axis Fault
Description of Problem:
The Abort Axis Fault message indicates that the servo amplifier located on the right-hand door of the
blue control cabinet has faulted. The failure could be caused by a variety of issues and can be either
intermittent or continuous. Once one axis faults the software and system will cut power to all axis to
prevent damage to the equipment. Due to this if the error message changes between “Abort X1 Axis
Fault” and a second Error message, the problem is more likely related to the additional error message
and/or axis.
CAUTION
If the E-stop is hit too many times in a row it can cause the High Voltage power supply to over heat. If
this occurs allow the machine to sit idle for 10-15 minutes before clearing the fault.

Troubleshooting:
Intermittent Fault: (Clear Fault by pressing ENTER button on UIT)
An intermittent problem is more difficult to track down and usually associated with an electric problem
rather than a mechanical problem. It is important to keep track of the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
How many times per day does error occur?
Does it happen only with specific files or any file?
Does the Fault always clear when you click on the “ENTER” key?
Does it happen only in certain areas of the table?
Does it happen at certain times of the day or after running for a fixed time?
Does it happen only when other machines around it are operating?
Step 1
The problem may be with the 5 VDC or 12 VDC power supplies located under the operator side of the
gantry. If the voltage is set too low or if there’s a bad connection and the power supplies are arcing or
heating up it can cause intermittent voltage drops on the 5 or 12 VDC power supplies causing the servo
motor encoders/halls or the E-stop circuit to drop out.
Check:
a) Remove cover from operator side and locate the 5 VDC and 12 VDC power supplies.
b) Measure the voltage at each power supply and adjust the voltage as required. There is a
potentiometer with adjusting screw on each power supply. The voltage should be between 4.9 5.1 VDC and 11.9 to 12.5 VDC respectively.
c) Close EasiCut and power down machine and control box.
d) Inspect the 6 pin white connector on the power supplies for browning caused by heat.
e) Remove the 6 pin white connector for each of the power supplies and carefully pop out one
connector at a time and bend them open in order to provide a better connection. (Call Eastman
and request Tech Note 23 for a pictorial on how to remove pins from connector.)
Step 2
The problem may be caused by an amplifier starting to fail. It’s possible that the amplifier output has
degraded and can not supply the power to the motor.
a)
b)
c)
d)
Power down system and turn off power to diagnostic control box.
Push the gantry up and down the table making sure that it moves freely.
Open the right side door of diagnostic box and locate the (4) gantry amplifiers.
Switch the amplifier from the bad axis with it’s corresponding amplifier. (Note the X1 and X2
amplifiers can be swapped and the Y and Z amplifiers can be swapped.)
e) With the power off unplug and swap the P1 connector and the Motor A, B and C wires from the
P2 terminal block. Make sure you wire the leads in the same order based on color.) You do not
need to swap the DC power (Pins 4 & 5) on P2 connector.
f) Request Tech Note 3 from Eastman for amplifier tuning and wiring procedures.
Form E-541

CAUTION
The X1 and X2 amplifiers are tuned differently then the Y and Z amplifiers. You can not swap an X1 or X2
amplifier with a Y or Z amplifier without retuning. If an X1/X2 tuned amplifier is put on a Y or Z axis the motor
will vibrate and over heat damaging the motor. (Refer to Tech Note 3 for tuning)
g) If the Error message switches to the axis the amplifier was moved to then the amplifier may be
bad.
Step 3
The problem can be a cable problem with a loose connection or an intermittent break at a flex point.
Eastman provides strain relief and high flex cables to help prevent cable damage.
a) With the power on the gantry, tug and flex the cables under the non-operator side of gantry.
Flex the cable to simulate gantry moving to try and identify an intermittent break in the cable.
b) Close Easicut and power down the Eagle Conveyor
c) Inspect all cables from the non-operator side of gantry back to computer. Look for any cables
rubbing where cable may have worn through insulation. If Y or Z axis, check the Y/Z motor
cable across gantry.
d) Check all connections on the non-operator side of gantry and at the computer and diagnostic
box. Make sure all screw terminals are tight at the connectors.
Continuous Fault: (Fault does not clear by pressing ENTER button on UIT)
Open up the right hand door of the blue diagnostic cabinet in order to view all (4) Servo Amplifiers.
Power up the Eagle Conveyor using the standard power-up procedures. Start the EasiCut software
while watching all 4 servo drives while the software is booting up.
If all 4 Servos have no power, then proceed to Step 1.
If all 4 Servos power-up Green then all turn Red Step 2.
If the Servo drives stay Red or pulse on and off, go to Step 3.
Step 1 No Power on Servo Drives
1. If fan in Diagnostic box or E-box is running:
a) Verify if LED’s on the High Voltage Power Supply in Diagnostic box is lit or not lit.
b) With power off, disconnect the red High Voltage wire on one of the amplifiers(P2 Pin 5). After
disconnect the red power lead tape off the exposed wire to prevent the 165 VDC power from
shorting to ground. Turn on power and verify if the remaining three axes power up with a red
LED.
c) Repeat this process of each axis until the amplifiers light or you find a bad amplifier..
d) If you have 115 VAC power to the High Voltage power supply but the fan is not running and/or
you do not have 165 VDC power output to the drives with all drives disconnected, then it is likely
the High Voltage Power Supply is not functioning.
72
Form E-541
2. If the fan in the Diagnostic box is not running check:
1. Make sure all E-Stops are turned off.
a) Check the LED status of E-stops on the X-axis Board (Request Tech Note 002 to verify EStops)
b) Make sure Gantry Power Switch is on at the Diagnostic box.
c) Look at Plotter Status in EasiCut software to see if E-Stop is active.
2. If the Power Switch is on and E-stops are up.
a) With a Volt Meter and qualified electrician, verify there is 115 VAC at the connection on the High
Voltage Power Supply in the Diagnostic cabinet. Check fuses in 115 VAC line.
3. If you have 115 VAC at the High Voltage power supply but low voltage (Under 140 VDC) at the
amplifiers:
a) With power off, disconnect each amplifier one at a time to determine if one of the axes is
shorting out the High Voltage power supply. Remember to tape the end and tie off the Red
power connection since this will have 165 VDC at power-up.
b) Repeat this process for each axis until the High Voltage Power supply lights up.
This would indicate a short in one of the axes that is pulling down the High Voltage power Supply.
4. If you have 115 VAC at the High Voltage Power Supply but get no DC output to the servo drives
with all the drives disconnected.
a) Make sure you have 5 VDC and 12 VDC power at the low voltage power supply(s) located
under the Operator side Gantry cover. Make sure you have 12 VDC output on upper power
supply.
b) If you have 115 VAC power to the low voltage power supply(s) but no output, the power supply
is bad or shorted. Disconnect the 6-pin connector and measure directly on pins. If the 5-volt
line is low it can be adjusted using the potentiometer. The 5 VDC line should be between 4.9
and 5.2 VDC
Step 2 If all Servo Axes are turning Green then Red at the same time:
1.
Check the Hall Signals for the servo axis. The LED’s for the Hall Signal is located at the back of
the Diagnostic cabinet. You will need to look at the LED’s for the Halls while someone slowly
rotates the motors. This can be down in slow jog mode if the motors are powered or by hand if
machine is faulted.
a) Moving the gantry, Y-car and spinning the tools slowly by hand, make sure the hall signal from
each axis blinks on and off. At all times you should have at least 1 or 2 of the Hall A, B or C lit
for a single axis, but never all 3 lit at the same time.
b) If one axis have all the Hall LED’s lit at one time or all the LED’s off at one time then the
problem is in the hall signal. It could possibly be the Amp I/O board with the LED’s, the X-Axis
Board or in the motor cabling. Call Eastman’s Tech Service for further testing to determine
cause.

Check the Encoder signals from the motor to the MEI board located in the computer. This is done
by opening the MEI software.
a) Hit the machine E-stop to cut power to motors then pull up on the E-stop.
b) Close the Easicut Software.
c) Open the MEI software. If there is not already a shortcut on the desktop, use Windows Explorer
and go to C:Program Files/Eastman/Easicut 2000/ MEI Console/ MC_DSP_NT.exe
d) Click on Controller 0 then open up each of the Axis 0-3 in the right hand window.
Axis 0 – X1 Motor
Axis 2 – Y Motor
Axis 1 – X2 Motor
Axis 3 – Z Motor
e) Click on “Reset Controller” to clear the position of all the axes on the MEI board.
f) Put a mark on each motor pulley and rotate the motor one complete revolution. The X1 and X2
motors will have 8000 encoder counts/rev and the Y and Z motors will have 4000 encoder
counts/rev. If the encoder count is significantly off then that axis is loosing encoder counts. (It
could be the MEI board, X-axis Board, Motor or cabling)
g) Call Eastman and speak to a technician for additional testing.
74
Form E-541
3.
Check the Limit Switches to make sure none of the Limits are active.
a) Physically check each limit switch (1) X limit and (2) Y-Limit switches. Press them in and out to
make sure they click and are not stuck.
b) Remove the non-operator side cover and check the Limit LEDs on X axis Board. Each of the
limit switch LED’s should be lit signaling that the limits are not active. Press the limits switches
on and off to verify the LEDs change.
4.
If all the Hall and Encoder signals are good, the problem could be with the power to the motor.
a) With the power off, unplug the X1/X2 Motor Power Cable and the Y/Z Motor Power cable from
the back of the Diagnostic cabinet.
b) Power-up the machine and start EasiCut to see if all the amplifiers power-up green. If they do,
turn the power off and connect the X1/X2 or Y/Z motor power cables back in one at a time to
determine which cable is causing the fault.
c) Once you determined which cable is faulting, connect both cables back up and unhook the
motor power directly at the amplifier. (Motor A, B and C wires)
Example:
If the Y/Z motor power cable was the problem, disconnect the Y or Z motor power at the
amplifier then power up the system and see if all the amplifiers power up green.
d) Once you determine which axis is bad, swap the connectors between the Y and Z amplifiers or
the X1 and X2 amplifiers. (Never swap the Y or Z amplifier with either X amplifiers)
e) With the power off unplug and swap the P1 connector and the Motor A, B and C wires from the
P2 terminal block. (Make sure to wire the leads in the same order based on color.) Do not
swap the DC power (Pins 4 & 5) on the P2 connector.
If the problem stays with the amplifier it is most likely a bad amplifier. If the problem stays with the axis
then it is most likely in the motor or cabling.
Step 3 If the Servo Amplifiers are blinking or flashing from Red to Off:
a) With power off, disconnect each amplifier one at a time to determine if one of the axes is
shorting the High Voltage power supply. Remember to tape the end and tie off the Red power
connection since this will have 165 VDC at power-up.
b) Once the loose wire is taped off, repower the diagnostic cabinet and see if amplifiers stay
powered.
c) Repeat this process of each axis until the High Voltage Power supply lights up.
This would indicate a short in one of the axes that is pulling down the High Voltage power Supply.

Error Message:
Abort X1 Error Limit
Abort X2 Error Limit
Abort Y Error Limit
Abort Z Error Limit
Description of Problem:
The “Abort Error Limit” indicates the motor can not get into position and has a difference of over 1000
encoder counts between the commanded and actual positions. This can be caused by mechanical
problem with the gantry and/or an electrical problem with the motors.
Troubleshooting:
1.
Verify the acceleration and velocities are set properly for the material your cutting. Try slowing the
cut speed and move speed down. If it is a Z-axis fault click on the Options/Machine then Motion
tab and make sure the Z acceleration is not set above 205 radians/s*s and the Z velocity is not set
above 150 radians/s
2.
Power down the system and move the effected axis by hand to verify that it moves freely
throughout its’ full range of motion. Look for any sticking or mechanical interference that could be
causing it to bind.
Intermittent Fault: (Fault Clears by pressing ENTER button on UIT)
1.
The problem could be caused by the 5 VDC power supply dipping resulting in the degradation of
the encoder signal and loss of encoder counts.
a) Remove cover from operator side and locate the 5 VDC and 12 VDC power supplies.
b) Measure the voltage at each power supply and adjust the voltage as required. There is a
potentiometer with adjusting screw on each power supply. The voltage should be between 4.9
-5.1 VDC and 11.9 to 12.5 VDC respectively.
c) Close EasiCut and power down machine and control box.
d) Inspect the 6 pin white connector on the power supplies for browning caused by heat.
e) Remove the 6 pin white connector for each of the power supplies and carefully pop out one
connector at a time and bend them out in order to provide a better connection. (Call Eastman
and request Tech Note 23 for a pictorial on how to remove and bend pins from connector.)
2.
The problem could be caused by a broken or exposed wire.
a) Inspect the motor and encoder cables for any twisting or rubbing which may have caused an
exposed wire.
b) Check the connections at the computer and X axis board to make sure cables are securely
fastened.
c) Turn off computer and try and reseat the MEI board.
d) Observe if fault occurs in same area of table in the X or Y direction.
e) Push and Pull on the cables at bottom of gantry testing for intermittent shorts while running the

Error Message:
Emergency Stop
Description of Problem:
The “Emergency Stop” error message indicates that one of the (4) emergency stop buttons are active
or the 12 VDC power supply on the gantry is gone. The 12 VDC power supply is used to power the
emergency stop circuit as well as fire the tools.
Troubleshooting:
1. Check all E-Stop buttons on both sides of the Gantry and any remote buttons. Push each
E-stop button in and pull out to verify they are off.
2. Check to see if the E-Stop Red Light on the operator and non-operator side of the Gantry is
lit. If one of the red lights is lit check E-stop Button and wiring on that side of gantry. This
will verify the gantry E-Stop buttons are working.
3. Remove operator side cover of gantry. Verify the low voltage power supply is properly
adjusted. (5 VDC between Red and Black wires, 12 VDC between White and Black wires)
If voltage is too high or low adjust the potentiometer on the power supply board. Re-install
the gantry cover making sure to reconnect E-stop circuit. (If covers are not plugged in then
E-stop circuit is active)
4. Remove non-operator side cover on Gantry while keeping the E-stop circuit connected,
then check the X-Axis board. There should be (2) Green LED’s lit on the front center of the
board. If only one green LED is lit, check the button and wiring on non-operator side of
gantry. If neither green LED’s are lit check the button and wiring on operator side of the
gantry. This will verify the E-stop signal is getting to the X axis board.
5. Unplug the “Table Remote” cable from the back of the Diagnostic Cabinet and jumper pins
2 and 10. If the E-Stop condition can be cleared by pressing “Enter” on the gantry then the
table remote E-Stop boxes have a broken wire or short. Check wiring and E-stop buttons
on the remote E-stops.

Abort Y Not Enabled
Abort Z Not Enabled
Description of Problem:
The “Abort ## Not Enabled” fault indicates the amplifier for the corresponding axis did not receive an
input to enable. This can be an indication of a bad cable or bad trace on Amp I/O Board.
Troubleshooting:
1.
Check the Enable signal LED on the Amp I/O board. This is part of the LED’s on the AMP I/O
board which can be seen on the back of the Diagnostic Cabinet. The AMP Enable LED should be
lit. If not then check the following:
a) Unplug the Amplifier I/O Cable (31-B1021-10) from the Amp I/O Board and measure the voltage
between pins 2 and 14. You should be measuring 12 VDC.
b) If you do not measure 12 VDC, then ohm out the Amplifier I/O cable 31-B1021-10.
c) Locate the Amp Enable LED on Multifunction board and see if it is lit. The Amp Enable LED is
the green LED located just below the second connector from the back of the board.
2.
Check the individual Amp Enable signals from Amp I/O Board to amplifiers if only one amplifier is
not enabling.
a) Swap the cable from the Amp I/O board to the Amplifiers, between an amplifier that enables and
an amplifier that does not enable.
b) If the problem switches to the other axis it may be the cable that is bad.
c) If the problem stays with the same axis it may be the Amp I/O that is bad.

Description of Problem:
The “Home Not Found” fault indicates that the software is not seeing the Home Sensor when the ZERO
TABLE” button is pushed.
Troubleshooting:
1.
Open up the non-operator side cover and look at the Home LED’s on the X-Axis board. All the
Home LED’s should be lit when the home switches are not pressed. Press each Home Switch
making sure the LED goes on and off.
Form E-541
81

2.
If the gantry or Y-car move slowly away from the switch, this is an indication the home switch is
active and you need to unstick or replace the switch
3.
If the gantry begins homing and hits the end stops without seeing the home switch, then check the
switch to make sure it is contacting the cam plates. If switch does not hit the CAM plate adjust the
switch accordingly.
4.
If Z-Home is not found, check the Z photo eye sensor to make sure it is activating.
a) Rotate the tool by hand and see if the Z Sensor lights when the nut on spindle 3 pulley passes
in front of it. The back of the senor will light and can be viewed behind the Y-car. You may
need to remove gantry cover to view.
b) Put the tip of a screw driver in front of the sensor to see if sensor lights. If it does then adjust
the sensor position closer to the nut.
c) Check the Y-Axis Board and see if the Z-Home LED lights when the nut passes in front to the
sensor. If it does not light try unplugging the sensor to another plug on the Y-axis board and
see if it lights. (Try plugging it into one of the tool plugs which you know is working.) If it still
does not work it could be the sensor or the cable.
d) If the Z-Home does not light when plugged to any of the (4) plugs below the Z-Home plug on the
Y-axis board (Sens 1 – Sens 4) but works on the Tool plugs then the 12 VDC power from the Zaxis board may be missing. Contact an Eastman Tech to determine what wires can be
swapped in the wire harness.
Error Message:
Abort X Limit Error
Abort Y Limit Error
Description of Problem:
The “Abort # Limit Error” fault indicates the limit X or Y switch is active. It could be the gantry or Y-car

Troubleshooting:
1.
Check the position of the Gantry and Y-car and make sure they are not positioned over a limit
switch.
2.
Remove the non-operator side cover and check the Limit Switch LEDs to see if any of the limits are
active. All the Limit Switch LED’s should be lit when the limit is not active.
3.
Press Each Limit switch in and out and watch the LED’s to make sure they go on and off.
4.
If a LED stays lit, then unplug the I/O cable from under the gantry repeat step 3. If LED now goes

Conveyor Error Limit
Description of Problem:
The “Conveyor Error Limit” fault indicates the conveyor motor can not get into position.
Troubleshooting:
Intermittent Fault: (Clear Fault by pressing NEXT button on UIT)
1.
Check the roller bearings for the belt rollers and make sure they move smoothly.
2.
Check to make sure roller did not shift on shaft and is running on frame.
3.
Check under the machine for material that the belt maybe dragging over. Remove any scrap
material from under the machine or wrapped around the roller shafts.
4.
Remove the center cover of the conveyor on the operator side of table and look at the vacuum
gage mounted on the blower box. With the table fully covered and the blower on, the vacuum
gage should be about 8”. More pressure creates more drag on the belt which requires more
torque from the motor. If the vacuum gage is over 10” of vacuum, adjust the vacuum down by:
a) If you are using a VFD drive on the blower, just dial down the blower speed until the pressure
drops to about 8” of water.
b) If you do not have a VFD drive just open the slide gate on the blower box to allow more airflow.
The slide gate is located on the opposite side of the blower box from the vacuum gage. You will
have to move the muffler to the side to gain access. Loosen the allen head screws and raise
the door which will lower the vacuum pressure.
5.
Verify that you have 3 phase power going to the amplifier. Open the diagnostic cabinet and check
the CB1 and CB2 breakers to make sure they are all closed. If you have fuses in the diagnostic
cabinet then check fuses F1, F2, F3, F7, F8 and F9.

The error can be caused by a blown internal fuse of the conveyor amplifier. To check the fuses:
a)
b)
c)
d)

Open up the left door of diagnostic cabinet and locate the large conveyor amplifier.
Remove the conveyor amplifier cover and there are (4) fuses located on the inside cover.
Verify that each of the fuses are good
Disconnect motor from gearbox and jog belt to see if amplifier faults when under no load. Run the
belt at slow jog speed and make sure motor turns uniformly without any jerky motion. Verify that
the motor has holding torque. If motor rotates on it’s own then check the hall and power
connections.

Disconnect motor from gearbox. Verify that the motor spins freely and has holding torque.
2.
Open up the right hand door on the diagnostic cabinet and confirm that the Conveyor Amplifier has
power. Red LED indicates faulted, Green LED indicated amplifier OK, no LED indicates No Power.
If the Power LED on Conveyor Amplifier is not lit than:
a) If No LED is lit check the 230 VSC 3 phase power into amplifier. If you do not have power at the
amplifier trace the power back and check all circuit breakers and all fuses.
b) If there is power at the amplifier, power down system and remove the cover of conveyor
amplifier. Check the fuses located on the inside cover. Check board for burnt components.
c) Disconnect conveyor motor power cable from back of cabinet and see if LED lights.
d) IF LED still does not light then amplifier is more than likely bad.
If the Power LED on Conveyor Amplifier is Red:
a) Check the incoming power to make sure you have 230 VAC on each leg.
b) Disconnect conveyor motor power cable from back of cabinet and see if LED lights Green.
c) Skip to step 3 below.
3.
Verify that the conveyor motor is getting encoder counts to the MEI board.
a) Close Easicut software.
b) Remove conveyor motor from gear box.
c) Open the MEI software. If you do not have a shortcut on the desktop go to C:Program
Files/Eastman/Easicut 2000/MEI Console and double click on the MC_DSP_NT.exe program.
d) Highlight Controller 1, address 0x320 and then click on Axis 0 in the right hand window to open
up the Axis window.
e) At the bottom left of the Motion Configuration Window is the position status. (See Below)
f) Click on the Clear Position window then spin the motor one complete turn and the Actual
position should be approximately 4000 counts. (If the encoder counts are correct then skip to
step 4 below)
g) If there are no encoder counts or the counts are off by over a few hundred, then unplug the 100
pin connector from the back of Conveyor MEI board and plug it into the gantry MEI board. (You
will need to unplug the small ribbon jumper cable from the gantry MEI board) See MEI Axis
Window below.
h) Close the Controller 1 axis 0 window.
i) Highlight Controller 0, address 0x300 and then click on Axis 0 in the right hand window to open
up the Axis window.
j) Click on the Clear Position window then spin the motor one complete turn and the Actual
position should be approximately 4000 counts.
k) If you get the correct counts the problem is with the Conveyor MEI board. If you still get the

Using an electrical meter measure the DC voltage of the Hall Signal back at the amplifier.
Measure the DC voltage between pin 12 (Ground) and pins 1 (Hall A), pin 2 (Hall B) and pin 3
(Hall C). The voltage should be 0 VDC or between 3.5 to 5 VDC. When you measure each Hall
make sure that at least one hall is between 3.5 VDC and 5 VDC but never all three Halls high or
low at the same time.
e) Rotate the motor about 1/3 turn and repeat step d. Do this again until you have seen each Hall
signal on and each Hall signal off.
f) If one Hall is always high or always low then check motor cabling.
g) If all 3 Halls are high or all 3 Halls are low at the same time, this indicates a fault with the hall
cable or motor.

Problem:
Cutting Belt is tracking to one side of conveyor
Description of Problem:
The cutting belt is moving to one side of conveyor and starting to rub against side plate. It is important
to determine if the belt is moving to the side with the air sensor or away from the air sensor. The design
of the belt tracking system is based on when the belt moves over the air sensor the belt steering
actuator is down but when the belt moves off the sensor the actuator pushes the steering roller up
forcing the belt to track back towards the sensor. It is important that the belt normal movement is away
from the sensor for the steering roller to work.

Form E-541
Troubleshooting:
Belt rubbing on side towards sensor.
1.
Remove machine cover and check that air sensor is working correctly. Cover and uncover the
sensor to see if actuator moves up and down. If actuator is all the way up but does not move down
then:
a) Check air pressure at actuator and sensor. The sensor should be set at 10 psi and the actuator
should have a minimum of 75 psi.
b) Check the pneumatic amplifier P/N 67-26492 to make sure signal from air sensor is being
transferred to the Air Pilot Valve P/N 67-26494.
c) Check the output of the air pilot valve to the actuator.
d) Remove hoses to actuator and cover and uncover the air sensor to determine if the air pressure
is changing to the actuator.
e) Look at the actuator slide for binding. Loosen slide and see if roller actuates.
2.
If actuator is working properly and steering roller is down but belt is still tracking towards the sensor
than adjust the roller at take-on side of machine.
a) Remove both endplate covers on take-on side of conveyor.
b) Loosen the bearing bolts and tighten the belt tension on the side the belt is tracking to. Use the
adjusting rod to move the roller out and force the belt away from the sensor. (You may also
slightly loosen the other side)
c) You may have to loosen both side of the roller and manually move the belt to the middle of table
and re-tension the belt . (See the belt installation instruction on how to stretch the belt.)
d) Check the roller heights at all four corners of the table. Measure the distance from the bottom of
the side plate to the floor at each side of roller. (Compare the height at each side of roller not
between rollers) Adjust the height of the side plate/roller as required.

Problem: Cutting Belt is Slipping
Description of Problem:
The cutting belt is slipping causing the pieces to come out smaller or cuts in the Y direction don’t line up
after conveyor moves. On occasions it maybe necessary to re-stretch the belt to obtain the correct
tension. If the belt stretches over time, it could cause the belt to slip. Also if the vacuum is too high it
effects the belt.
Troubleshooting:
1.
Check the vacuum at the conveyor by removing the center cover on operator side and looking at
the vacuum gage mounted on blower box. With the table covered you should have les then 10” of
vacuum. If the vacuum is over 10” then:
a. If you have a VFD drive for the blower, lower the blower speed to reduce vacuum.
b. If you do not have a VFD drive then remove the center cover on the non-operator side of
machine. On the back panel of the blower box is a door that can be adjusted up and down.
Loosen the door and adjust it up to decrease vacuum in the blower box.
2.
Loosen and re-tension the belt:
a) Remove the end covers for the tensioning rollers at the take on side of conveyor.
b) Loosen the bolts on the bearing at both the operator and non-operator side of machine.
c) Loosen the belt by turning the belt adjusting rod on both the operator and non-operator side of
machine.
d) Once the belt is loose on the machine, measure 100 cm on both the operator and non-operator
sides of the belt. Use a piece of tape and a pen line to mark the 100 cm.
e) Using the belt tension roller stretch the belt until the measurement reads 100.25 cm on both the
operator and non-operator side of the belt. (100 inches can also be used with a stretch to 1001/4 inch)
f) When finished tighten down the bearings and replace the covers.
2.

Run the belt continuously. Make sure that the belt tracks away from the edge control sensor.
When the belt moves off the sensor, the steering roller should actuate and force the belt back
towards the sensor.

Problem:
The Cutting Tool or Pen does not come down.
Description of Problem:
A tool or Pen does not come down when cutting a file or they are delayed coming down at the
beginning of a cut. This can be caused by an electrical short, tool mapping in software or a problem
with the power supply.
Troubleshooting:
1.
Make sure that Tool power on gantry is turned on. This can be verified by making sure the laser
pointer is on.
2.
Check the mapping of your tools and the layers are mapped properly under each tool.
a) The quick way to verify tool and layer mapping is to look at the tool bar at the bottom of the
EasiCut window. If there is no Tool Bar then click on “View” then click on “Show Layers” and
“Show Tools” in the main Easicut menu.
b) If the layer is not mapped to a tool or the tool is not on the spindle then just click and drag the
tool to the spindle or the layer to the tool before sending the file to the cutter.

RF/EMI Interference
Some factory environments may have equipment that generates Radio Frequency (RF) or ElectroMagnetic Interference (EMI). These signals in close proximity to the Eastman Eagle-C conveyor can
generate electrical noise and cause problems for the machine and computer. (Eastman does offer a
shielded mouse.) It is recommended that any RF Welders or other equipment generating RF or EMI
noise be a minimum of 75 feet (23 meter) from the conveyor.
Problems of this nature are typically difficult to resolve and must be approached in a systematic
manner. To reduce the effects of electrical noise generated by RF, Eastman Machine Company has
the following recommendations:
 Install an earth ground as close as possible to the transformer feeding AC power to the
cutting machine and power feed unit.
 Enclose all AC power cables in rigid conduit and ground securely to the earth ground,
Route the four power cables for the computer controls around the end of the conveyor
instead of under the unit, and
 Ground conduits to the frames of the power feed unit and the conveyor assemblies as well
as to the individual chassis of the computer control assembly.
Implementation of the foregoing should at least reduce the level of interference to a workable
level but in the event that it does not, you should be prepared to provide RF and/or install
power line filters as needed.
