VMC - 10-Pocket Umbrella Tool Changer - Mechanical Switches and Proximity Sensors - Maintenance

Pieces of material or other contamination can prevent the operation of mechanical switches or proximity sensors. This procedure tells you how to clean mechanical switches or proximity sensors for a 10-pocket umbrella tool-changer. The illustration shows mechanical switches and proximity sensors, but a machine has only one type.

  1. Mechanical switches
  2. Proximity sensors
  3. Carousel motor sensors (2)
  4. Shuttle motor sensors (2)
  5. Sensor Bracket
  6. Areas that must be cleaned

Push EMERGENCY STOP when you do maintenance on the machine.
Remove the mechanical switches or proximity sensors [3] from the motor plate. Remove all metal chips and debris from the mechanical switches or proximity sensors [3]. Clean the area [6] around the mechanical switches and proximity sensors [3] with a clean towel.

Remove both the IN and OUT mechanical switches or proximity sensors [4] and clean them. Clean the area [6] around the sensor bracket [5] and shuttle motor sensors [4].

Install the parts in the opposite order they were removed.
