Seeking Manuals for a MyData M9 Placement Machine...| 31 August, 2017
I have to learn how to program an old MyData (M9) pick and place machine that's been sitting in the company's basement for several years. Unfortunately, I have very little documentation. The machine runs, and there are some programs stored on the controller, but what I need is a full programming manual. I'd also like to get a maintenance manual too! I've tried to go to the company, but they want an egregious amount of dollars for a "maintenance package" plus more for programming classes, etc., which we don't have. We don't want maintenance (we can probably fix it ourselves if it breaks; we got it running). Plus, we are using this for opensource hardware projects, and we're working on a shoestring budget.
