I'm in the discovery/planning stage of doing this with my 1050. I also intend to add PLC control similar to JMorris' conversion.
I could use a little help in acquiring parts.
Could someone give me a little help with the motor specs and supplier?
One other question, from the video/pictures I've seen, it is unclear how the roller chain sprocket is attached to the shaft on the press end.
I have a machine and welding shop at my disposal and the required knowledge for the PLC, VFD, etc. With motor specs and drive questions answered, I'll be ready for the design stage.
