Setting up Model R800 Roll Attachment

Q: How do I Set up my model R800 Roll Attachment

A:

SET-UP INSTUCTIONS FOR

O.D. MARKING TOOLS IN AUTOMATIC SCREW MACHINE

1. Index the part to be marked to the selected marking position.

2. Advance the Marking Tool slide to the highest point of its cam. ( This should be as far forward as

possible, using any standard cam with an advance of slide per revolution, not in excess of .005”, but

more than .0015”.)

3. Insert Marking Tools in slide and move it forward until starting cam ( or die ) contacts the part. Strap,

or lock marking tool in this position.

4. Set up tripping mechanism to assure automatic tripping of the ratchet pawl after each marking cycle.

5. Start machine to mark part. IF MARKING APPEARS TO BE EITHER TOO LIGHT OR TO DEEP ,

MAKE ADJUSTMENTS IN POWER PAK OF TOOL. See below.

6. After the part is marked and when the tool slide in fully retracted it may be adjusted forward .005” to

.010” to assure marking of undersized parts.

NOTE

Should the tool fail to mark after adjustments are made as instructed above, the slide may be advanced but

only at the maximum rate of .010 on each test cycle until marking appears on part. If marking does not

appears on part. If marking does not appear after the slide has been advanced a distance of .030”, repeat

steps 3 through 6.

NOTE

Increase or decrease of marking depth can only be made with the CAM ADJUSTING SCREW in the

Power Pak of the marking tool and NOT by adjusting the tool slide. Turn cam adjusting screw ( either ¼-

20 x 2” or 10-32 x 1-1/2” depending on Model No. ) in for lighter impression and back screw off for

deeper impression. You may have to adjust slide travel in if you back off screw in order to make contact

with part O.D. By starting down on cam you get more rise, more pressure and deeper impression. And

the reverse if starting close to first character.
