Siemens SiPlace 80S - help! | 27 August, 2007

We bought a used Siemens (thus we have no factory support just yet...) and have run into a bit of a "catch 22" situation.

We got an "General Error :694 Incorrect nozzle length" and in the past this had to do with having a defective nozzle on the sleeve so we replaced the nozzle and retried. Same message, so we performed a full maintenance on the sleeves and the vaccuum plugs....Still no change.

However, in the process of the maintenance we think that we may have mixed up the nozzle configuration.

Our problem....we can't access the service menu to check the original configuration without completing the reference run. It can't complete the reference run without confirming the nozzle configuration.....I know I'm missing something incredibly obvious......

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Siemens has always offered me a good service - no matter if i bought the equipment used or not. They are not even expensive. Check their hotline for further information.

Log on as adminstrator and go to the file. The list of nozzles is in there. Put all 0's in and you can reference with out any nozzles.

As in the previous reply, When the machine is powered up don't press the start button. Just wait until the software has loaded then go into Sitest (you may need to logon as SERVICE). In the gantry or head menu's you should find the nozzle configuration. The best way I find to get more info on this is to do a nozzle height check, this will give you the offsets for all nozzles. If it all looks OK you could have a problem with your Z-axis or the star zero point may be wrong
