Hi, just a heads up that if this does become available cheap, I would need time to get organised if I had to collect it before 28th.

If it gets as low as 300 I will take it for spares.

For Sale/Wanted, Suppliers / RV1S for sale
« Last post by arvydas on September 20, 2020, 06:54:29 PM »
Hi! Moving out of country so have RV1S for sale. Was used in production until I purchased a new Chinese machine two years ago and it has been sitting there as a backup since, but never had to turn it on after I switched to the new machine.

I have 9 feeders that came with it, lots of spare parts, nozzles. I upgraded PSU on this machine with the help of this forum and PC which runs 98 so supports USB flash drives. Will also provide the original PC running 95 as a backup.

Not sure about feeder types and their condition. Will very likely need servicing, because I only needed and used three out of nine. There are:

- four 10 lane
- three vibration feeders
- one that has 4 small lanes and 3 larger
- last one has 3 very large lanes.

Can be seen running in this video:

Available in Hitchin, Herts. Would need to be gone before 28th of September.

Won't sell separately, want £900 for the whole lot or highest offer. Can't do VAT invoice, because it was purchased personally before the business was set up.

My first stop is to take the trapped I/O and pass it through to an FT2232 in
bus emulation mode so it will drive the original ISA card over USB. I've got
the bits sitting on the side here and will try to solder over the next few weeks.
However, a better solution might be to be to spin a USB card which doesn't
need to go via ISA.

I'm currently burning too much time finishing other projects and getting hit
with lab issues such as my GPSDO going intermittant and finding the critical
part is obsolete. <sigh>

That's weird I thought I already replied to this...

>>> the arm/table unit just lifts off.

Thanks Mike, I didn't realise that. That worked well and allowed enough weight reduction that the cabinet could be manhandled down some steps.

I have a 10 lane 8mm feeder last serviced on 20/04/20 and wondered if anybody would like to swap it for a 12mm feeder in good condition ? I am located in south Somerset. (Machine is an RV4S).

Many thanks for your reply. I have moved on and am placing components both from the 10 lane feeders and my 3D printed jig for the job. One thng that I would like to clarify, is that I set up a new feeder as a matrix, entered the dimensional offsets x and y for the lanes. Set reference 1 and 2 then had to set biases for each component. I had a ssumed that the software would have calculated that. Is this correct to have to set all biases or did I set my lane offsets incorrectly ? Big learning curve !

Well its been quite a while since I've been anywhere near one, but presumably you have created custom matrix tray roughly following pages 11+ with reference locations. Then when you setup a job you fill that tray with the requisite part just like any other feeder, trays have a few extra options which are of course a little quirky. IIRC every "pocket" is pretty much a lane so one matrix can have multiple part numbers loaded in it (I can't do that on Essemtec). There's a rotate 180 on refill option to cover the fact the arm might only reach half a tray and so you aren't refilling but turning it round, that option might drive you nuts, it doesn't always seem to do what you expect. Otherwise it should be much like using the other feeders, I'm sure an active user will chime in soon if I've forgotten something key. Otherwise perhaps you could describe exactly where its behaving badly.

Gopher, many thanks for your reply. I have a copy of this manual and the original one. Things that are causing me problems are my job has components which are in strips of 12mm, 16mm. 24mm. I 3D printed a pocketed equi-pitched jig (16mm x 11mm - 4 x4 matrix) but can't seem to get the gist of setting this up as a passive feeder properly. What steps do I have to do to ensure that the head moves onto the next location of the same component for board 2 of my 2 x 2 matrix and so on.
