Kitamura Mycenter Zero Mycenter-0 Manual

Kitamura Mycenter Zero Manual

For anyone who needs a manual for a MyCenter-0 see the above link. 

I purchased a 1989 Mycenter Zero in January 2017.

Now I am attempting to convert it to LinuxCNC control. I had to replace the z axis servo and amp. I did so with a Delta servo 750w with brake. I have also replaced all of the airlines as they were old and brittle. I pulled the Kitamura System 1000 with Fanuc O-M controller and have replaced it with a touch screen PC booting Linux.

I am currently working on getting the spindle and axis servos connected to the Mesa 7I77 so that I can get to the configuration portion of this conversion.

11×26 Lathe CNC Conversion

I have the 3 phase Leeson motor hooked up to the Teco L510 VFD. It is running strong. I suggest this modig=fication even if you do not intend to convert to CNC. You can hook up a potentiometer to control the speed from the panel or just adjust it at the VFD. I have the stand offs turned. Now I just need to machine the mounts for the steppers and ball screws. 



Hello and welcome!

My goals for this site is to have a place to share ideas and demonstrate how I accomplish so many of the tasks that I am faced with regularly. I had to learn many skills the hard way, then came the internet with free sharing of information. This is how I give back.

I plan to cover topics such as,

  • Machine shop operation
  • CNC and other automation
  • Machine design and optimization
  • Research and development
  • Foundry operation
  • Shop setup
  • Lean manufacturing
  • Promoting yourself in the digital age

Please feel free to comment. Especially if you know of an easier way to do something!
