way oils that are detailed in the table below. For more information on way oils, refer to machine
operator manual.

2. Push the Function Button (manual override button) to pull oil through tube (see Figure 27) and check
for leaks.
3. Power on the oiler: The automatic oiler is powered through the spindle drive contactor (C2). When
the spindle variable frequency drive (VFD) is on, the oiler is on. Keep this in mind if you are often
cutting air or running the high-speed spindle without the VFD powered on, as the oiler will not be
active in this condition.
4. Purge the system: After first connecting the oiler (or if the oiler has run out of oil), purge air from the
lines. Push and hold the Function Button in four second increments; repeat four times.
5. Set the interval time: The time interval defines the time between applications. Push and release the
Interval Time Button (see Figure 27). This activates the interval time setting as indicated by a blinking
Interval Indicator (INT) light (see Figure 27). In this mode, the Interval Time Button increases the
interval setting and the Function Button decreases the setting. The setting is displayed in the Interval
Time window (see Figure 27). This should be set to 240 minutes (four hours).
6. Set the actuation time: The actuation time defines the time of oil application, or the length of the oil
application pulse. Push and release the Actuation Setting Button (see Figure 27). This activates the
actuation time setting as indicated by a blinking Actuation Indicator (ACT) light (see Figure 27). In this
mode, the Actuation Setting Button increases the actuation setting and the Function Button decreases
the setting. The setting is displayed in the Actuation Time window (see Figure 27). This should be set
to 12 seconds.
7. After the actuation time and/or the interval time is changed, the system pauses for five seconds before
it reverts to run mode as indicated by an actuation of the oil application for a duration equal to the
actuation time (ACT light illuminated) followed by the start of the interval time (INT light illuminated).
NOTE: The operator may find the need to tweak the Interval or the Actuation time per individual circumstances.
CAUTION! Pressure Hazard: Do not set the actuation time too high as excessive pressure may result in
hose damage or a cracked manifold. If more lubrication is needed, shorten the interval time. Failure to do so
may result in damage to machine and cause personal injury.

Automatic Oiler Operation

As mentioned above, the automatic oiler powers on whenever the spindle VFD is powered on. If
the machine is left powered on for long periods of time overnight, for example oil is wasted. It
is always a good idea to power off the machine when not in use, or power off the VFD by turning
the spindle lockout key to the Off position to prevent oil waste.
The automatic oiler comes with two alarms relating to routine operation. The first alarm sounds
when the level in the reservoir drops below the required minimum, indicated by an illuminated
ALM light and the Actuation Time window display flashing. The second alarm sounds when
low pressure is detected, indicated by an audible beep, an illuminated ALM light, and both the
Actuation Time window and Interval Time window displays flashing. This second alarm is critical,
as the machine is no longer getting oil. If a second low pressure alarm goes off, refill the reservoir
with oil and purge air out of the system. For more information on purging air, see Automatic Oiler
Setup section earlier in this document. To clear an alarm, push the Function Button.
Turn the spindle on and press the Function Button to manually oil the machine as needed.
Oil machine any time it has been unused for more than 48 hours.
Troubleshooting
Problem

Possible Solution
NOTE: Pressure will only read on the gauge while the system is actuating.

No pressure indicated on pressure gauge. If no pressure is indicated while actuation is in progress:


a) Make sure there is oil in the reservoir, and
b) Check for leaks in the system hoses and fittings.
Pressure is indicated, but no oil is getting Check for blocked hoses and fittings on the machine. All bearing surfaces
to the ways and ball screws/nuts.
and all ball nuts have an oil line; verify all are getting oil.
Check that the VFD is powered on (or that C2 is activated).

Automatic oiler has no power.1

Measure AC voltage across L16 and L26 and the contactor. If 230 volts
is present, re-check wiring inside the oiler. If the wiring inside the oiler is
correct, replace control board.
If voltage is not present and the VFD will not power on, refer to Spindle
Drive Subsystem troubleshooting section in the machine operator manual.
