The brain arrived.
Today was the day when we would get back “the brain” to our paint box, the one that can be programmed and then work without anyone doing much more than see if we need to change program because something new is going to be painted that needs more or less paint pressure and so it did. Now it’s so much more intelligent or lets say it’s much smarter so it actually can tell us exactly what’s wrong when something goes wrong.
And so it did after only a few minutes 🙂 It turns out that if one puts around 80 000 volts into a big object (that’s what we charge the powder paint with so the entire thing we paint then gets charged too) it suddenly disturbs a sensor so it can’t communicate with ” the brain” 🙂 We already knew this sensor sat in the wrong place but the old brain couldn’t tell us what was wrong, just that something was and then it chose any kind of alarm and stopped the machines from working. Now we know better 🙂
This is actually a rather easy thing to correct but it will take a few days to build a frame that we can place some distance away from the painting box but still not be in the way for the coming material and naturally that’s only the place we really have very little space to place anything 🙂 But the good thing is that the brain works perfect but we can’t use it until we’ve moved that sensor. So we are still working with the machine in manual mode and that means I’ll have to check it more often and really keep an eye towards it just in case wider material is on its way so it doesn’t crash in to the painting guns because those are nasty expensive 🙂
It took some time to understand what was going on so we didn’t do as much as we had planned today but I have to admit that the day passed fast 🙂 Now it’s only Friday left until the weekend comes and Fridays are short days 🙂 Now I have almost daylight when I go to work and I have daylight when I go home after. The roads are great since it is so warm so now I feel some kind of hope that we’ll get a spring this year too 🙂
The fire is burning in the stove and it is time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. All the animals have had their dinner and now they all sleep somewhere in the cottage. I feel like joining them 🙂
Have a great day!
