Hello!

I’ve got Next Wave Automation’s CNC Shark and purchased the water cooled spindle accessory.
It’s been fine for the first couple of months, no issues at all.

However, today the spindle started acting funny…The motor will turn on and ramp up the RPMs, but the bit won’t move at all. If I leave it, it gets to 13,000 RPMs and cuts off with an “EOCA” error code. I figured maybe the bit was catching, so after turning the motor on, I flicked it with my finger, which got it spinning. It’s not taking it up to speed though because the wood smokes as it cuts…

Any ideas as to whats going on? I took the spindle apart and cleaned out any dust/lubed it up to see if that was the issue, but no improvements.

Thanks for the help!

Call Next Wave. I’ve heard that they have good support.

It s not taking it up to speed though because the wood smokes as it cuts…

If it’s smoking, then the bit is probably spinning too fast, or the bit is very dull.
A bit spinning too slowly will not smoke, it’;ll just break.
