Thanks for your replies to this one, It seems the problem wasn't height just accuracy, I think after reassembly of the arm head the nozzle position was slightly different, I re worked the tool positions and now it works perfectly.

Yes, thanks I had seen that one. I had thought about bidding on it for spares. But collecting it would cost more than its worth. Plus I have no where to store two of them.

Also, they weigh in about as much as a small elephant.



Have you seen this one on Ebay?

Maybe you an take the controllers off it and spare heaters etc for yours?
General SMT / SMTech Reflow Oven - Applications software

Hi Everyone,

New here. I've already pinged PhonoPlug a private message about this, but thought I'd post it on the open forums as well just in case anyone else can help out

I recently picked up an SMTech reflow oven (IRC300) at auction along with the control PC, unfortunately the PC was damaged beyond repair and the driver software is gone forever.

Brochure attached.

The oven itself seems to be in good condition at least cosmetically. I've buzzed out the 3phase connector and there doesn't seem to be any shorts line to line or to ground so I'm hopeful when I apply some power to it, it might work.

I've scoured the net looking for the original driver software so I can at least try the machine and managed to find a demo version of the software, but that has no capability to connect to the serial terminal on the oven.

I'm hoping someone has the original software. If you do, could I trouble you for a copy of the software? It would be a massive help.

Eventually, I may do as PhonoPlug has done and ditch the original controller. It doesn't look that well designed at all to be honest.

But I'd like to see if I can check everything out as built before modifying it.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks in advance

Kind Regards

One thing that took me a while to figure out originally - is that I had one tool that didn't load well. Turned out it had a mostly blocked orifice (can I say that on here :) ) - and the resulting back pressure was stopping it from being pushed on properly.

I've tried the tool block height cal a few times both with and without the nozzle and in both cases the results didn't seem to make much sense - so I reverted to the old height - but I would like to learn the right call method too as I think I have a small error on pickup height.

Also, anyone know how to do the fid cam cal? A member on here recently implied they did.

I've been using my RV a lot over the last few days and by-and-large it has been working out well. I sure wish I had access to the source code though so I could make some UI improvements.

I am having the same problem but only have the issue with tool 2 (or I should say tool position 2) tool 2 in any other position works fine

The z axis was making a grinding noise so I decided to replace the rack and pinion, in the end I changed the pinion and turned the rack back to front as only one side was worn, on reassembly I went through the calibration procedure for the cams using tool 2 and tool5, and reset the focussing etc for camera 1 and camera 2, I then ran the tool height routine which seems to run without a nozzle fitted (no instructions).

Since carrying out the above I have a problem where the machine cannot put the nozzle back into the tool station, and occasionally doesnt pick up the tool, I have never used the tool station height calibration before and I am wondering whether it needs tweaking somehow so that the nozzle is picked and place lower in the tool station to allow it to turn and lock properly.

Any Ideas?
