Removing the Toothed Belt from the Rail

Look for Red Dots (only these screws are to be adjusted).


1. Loosen one full turn only the 3/16 Allen belt tensioner screw located on the right bottom side of the lower rail marked with a red dot (Fig A). Only loosen it so that there is some movement in the belt tensioner; about one full turn (Fig B). Belt tensioner springs should be visible.

WARNING: Do not over loosen this screw. One full turn is usually sufficient.

5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 with the upper rail.

Slide off Gantry


1. Move the gantry to the left to dislodge the belt anchors (Fig A). The belt anchors are sunk into the left ends of the rails and are attached to the toothed belts. Lay the belt anchors over the toothed belts and rubberband them together. 2. Hold the gantry on the bottom and along the gantry arm (Fig B) and gently roll the gantry off the rails on the left side of the board and set aside (Fig C). The gantry only weights about 30 lbs, but it is large and awkward, so having a second person standing in front of the CMC helping may be beneficial.

Gantry Installation
Put the Gantry on the Board
1. Before installation, look at the bottom set of gantry wheels. The bottom wheels are spring-loaded, the top wheels are on a center-pivot (Fig A). Move the top set of wheels as needed for ease of installation (picture shows gantry being put on rail from back) (Fig B).

Fig A.

Fig B.

2. Before installation, look at the top set of gantry wheels. Both sets of wheels are spring-loaded (Fig C). Wheels may need to be eased over the rails (picture shows gantry being put on rail from back) (Fig D).

Fig C.

Fig D.

3. Hold the gantry near the left side of the CMC and line up the upper then lower wheels of the gantry to the center channel of the rails (Fig E). NOTE: Installation is easier if you line up the upper wheels first, then slide the lower wheels onto the rail. Sometimes having a second person for this step helps. 4. Carefully ease the gantry onto the left side of the rails, taking care that all of the wheels line up. Upper and lower gantry ends must be slid on at the same time. Make sure that the toothed belt lies within the channel on either side and is not pinched between the gantry and the rail (Fig F). 5. Roll gantry past where the stop screw was removed. Replace the 3/16 stop screw into the left bottom rail (Fig G). Roll the gantry to the far right of the CMC and back to the left to make sure it moves smoothly.

Hook Up the Gantry


Connecting the Board Cable *Carefully align the in-line pins of the board cable before applying pressure to plug it in. If forced in incorrectly, the CMC will malfunction.*
1. The board cable connects the gantry on the CMC to the ECU, which is a shoebox-sized peripheral. Connect the male end of the board cable (Fig A) to the back of the ECU (Fig B) by aligning the pins and turning the locking ring until it seats itself and locks into place. 2. Connect the female end of the board cable to the back of the gantry in the same manner (Fig C). 3. Move the gantry to the far right of the CMC and back to the left to make sure the board cable does not get caught on anything. If the board cable is obstructed, this will affect the cuts.

Attaching Air Lines


1. Follow the air line with the red connector from the top of the gantry and connect it to the right side of the air regulator by inserting the red connector on the end and twisting it into place (Fig A). 2. Follow the air line with the blue connector from the top of the gantry and connect it to the matching blue airline on the back of the board (Fig B). Make sure that none of the air lines are crimped. 3. Turn on the air.

Fig B.

2. Locate the head wheel adjustment Allen screws on the left side of the head under the blade depth adjustment plate. They are next to the head wheels and are marked with red dots. Do not touch the Allen screws on the wheels themselves. 3. Loosen each head wheel adjustment Allen screw only until the wheels are loose; about two full turns (Fig C). The wheels are spring-loaded and will pop into place. NOTE: If having difficulty getting the head wheels onto the gantry during head installation, loosen the head wheel adjustment screws, roll the head onto the gantry, then continue with the following instructions. 4. Grasp the head with both hands and gently rock it back and forth to ensure that the wheels are lined up to the gantry grooves (Fig D).

5. Retighten the head wheel adjustment Allen screws consecutively; tighten the top screw half a turn, then the bottom screw half a turn, back to the top and continue until they are both tight (Fig E). 6. Check each of the head wheels to make sure there is no movement (Fig F). There are the two visible wheels on the left side of the head under the blade depth adjustment plate, and two wheels on the backside of the gantry, which can be felt by hand. They should sit firmly into the gantry groove and be difficult to turn. If not, repeat these steps of loosening the wheels, gently rocking the head back and forth (Fig G), then retightening the wheels.
