SECTION 1 KEYBOARD CONTROLS


THE CONTROL PANEL
The figure below shows the control panel of the SummaSign series cutters. The main functions of the liquid crystal display (LCD) and the control panel keys are explained in the following paragraphs. The explanation has been written for a T-series cutter. The only difference with the Dseries is that some menu and configuration points have been omitted. The D-series cutters work the same as T-series cutters when a drag knife is installed.

Service Manual

THE LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY The 32-character liquid crystal display (LCD) contains two lines of 16 characters each. The LCD provides cutter status information during operations and displays menu options for the configuration of the cutter. The contrast of the LCD can be adjusted from the control panel in order to ensure optimum readability under varying lighting conditions. Instructions for adjusting the LCD contrast are given in Section 1.6.12. The various menu and submenu items are always presented in a loop, which means that, when the last menu or submenu item is displayed, pressing the appropriate key will automatically take you back to the first item of the same menu or submenu. Next to the status messages and/or menu options displayed on the LCD, arrow symbols representing the , , , jogging keys and key will tell you what keys to press to go to the next menu item (top line of the display) or to the next value for a given submenu item (bottom line of the display).

THE RESET/LOAD KEY The key (RESET/LOAD) is used to move the origin, to initiate a load sequence, to key reset the cutter, to abort the cut in progress or to recut the last file. When the (RESET/LOAD) is pressed, the cutter goes off line, suspends all operations in key until SET ORIGIN, progress and displays the RESET/LOAD menu. Press the LOAD, RESET, ABORT or RECUT is displayed. To confirm RESET, ABORT or RECUT press the key (ENTER). To execute the SET ORIGIN instruction move the knife origin using the , , , jogging keys and press the key (ENTER) to confirm the new origin position. To initiate the LOAD instruction press the 1 or 2 key to initiate a load sequence for a ROLL or SHEET respectively. Upon termination of any of these instructions, the cutter goes on line again. The SET ORIGIN instruction is used to move the knife origin. The LOAD instruction is used to initiate a load sequence. The RESET instruction performs a complete reset of the cutter. The ABORT instruction simply cancels the cut in progress. Aborting a cut will not reset the cutter parameters: the parameters which had been selected for the cut remain in effect. The RECUT instruction recuts the last file sent to the cutter (provided that it fitted into the buffer). When using the multiple recut function the different copies will be cut in the media in such a way that there is only a minimal loss of media. The distance between the copies can be changed (See Section 1.4.18).

NORMAL OPERATION
The term "normal operation" covers on line operation, off line operation and local operation, i.e. the three types of operation for actual cutting or plotting. They are explained in further detail in the following paragraphs. ON LINE AND OFF LINE On line and off line are two important concepts when using the SummaSign cutters. The cutter is on line only when the following message is displayed on the LCD : 800mm/s 120 g .45mm(1) ON LINE K 1

This display message should be read as follows : 800 mm/s 120 g K = .45 mm(1) ON LINE 1 = velocity = knife pressure or pen pressure knife operation (K) or pen operation (P) or pouncing operation = knife offset - only displayed when in drag knife mode = cutter is ready to receive data = user number

In all other cases, the cutter is off line. When on line, the cutter can be addressed by the host computer, which means that the cutter will execute cutting or plotting instructions issued by the host computer's application software. The host computer will first issue a SELECT sequence to the on line cutter, and the message "*ON LINE" will be displayed on the LCD. The asterisk indicates that the host is in communication with the cutter : i.e. the cutter is now selected by the computer. When the cutter is on line and ready to receive instructions from the host computer, it will remain deselected until actual instructions from the computer are received. When the cutter is on line, but has not been selected by the host computer, the message "ON LINE" is displayed on the LCD, without the asterisk. For normal cutting operations, the cutter MUST be on line, so that it can receive instructions from the host computer and the cutting/plotting software.

FLEX-CUT FLEX-CUT can be set to OFF, to Mode 1 or Mode 2. When the cutter is set to mode 1 or mode 2, it will alternately cut one length with full pressure, and one length with reduced pressure. The feature FLEX-CUT offers the advantage that it cuts completely through the material, yet allowing the material to stay together by means of the small media bridges. MODE 1 is the quickest mode, but it is less precise because the pressure changes during the cutting. MODE 2 is a lot slower, but at the same time it is much more precise, as the cutter stops at every change of pressure. Pressing the 1 key will activate the configuration menu, which allows you to set the cutting pressure and the cut length. 1. CUT LENGTH This parameter determines the length that is cut with full pressure. By pressing the 1 key, the FLEX-CUT test pattern will be cut. 2.

TANG. KNIFE CALIBRATION The purpose of the knife calibration routine is to detect and, if need be, to correct problems related with the concentricity of the TANGENTIAL knife blade. This routine should only be run when required. When noticing cut quality problems with a new knife, perform a knife calibration test as described in the following paragraphs. During the knife calibration routine, the cutter will cut a series of test patterns which will allow you to identify errors in knife rotation and concentricity. Corrective measures can be taken using the control panel keys. Knife calibration errors may be due to any of the following causes (see Fig. 1-5): Concentricity misalignment. The knife tip is slightly rotated in relation to its theoretical 0 angle. This error can be corrected by means of the ADJUST ORIGIN test routine. Horizontal misalignment. The knife tip deviates from its theoretical longitudinal centre. This error can be corrected by means of the ADJUST LONG. test routine.

REPLACING THE MAIN PCB


The SummaSign and SummaCut cutters manufactured since December 1995 have a different main PCB from those manufactured before that date. The boards on the new cutters have the logic for the head control on the same main PCB whereas the parallel input is on an extra board. You can obtain this option by ordering part number 421-174. The new type of boards are fully compatible with the old type of boards, the only difference being the position of particular connectors, and certain parts, previously situated on the small PCB, that can now be found on the main PCB. The old type of boards can be exchanged for the new type of boards. Summarizing, there are two types of main PCBs:

0Type 1: Main PCBs dating from before December 1Type 2: Main PCBs dating from after December 1995
To replace a PCB, proceed as follows: 42.Remove the right-hand cover (see Chapter 2. 2, Removing the right-hand cover). At the top of the PCB 43. 44.Disconnect the various connectors. Pay close attention to the positioning of the connectors. They should be returned to their original location when re-installed. 36. Note: 37. In the Type 1 models the connector for the cam roller switch has to be removed from the small PCB. 45. 46.Remove the flat cable for the head by pulling the flat cable connector up. On both sides of the connector cover there is a small protuberance that you can pry up using a screwdriver. Gently pull the flat cable out of the connector. 38. 39. 47. 48.Remove the flat cable for the keyboard. 49.Remove the flat cable for the LCD. At the rear of the PCB 50.Remove the safeguard located a few inches above the grounding wires. Loosen the two grounding clamps so that the earthing wires can be removed.

REPLACING A DRAG HEAD OR A TANGENTIAL HEAD


Below is the description for the replacement of a standard drag head. The procedure described is also roughly applicable to the replacement of a tangential head. The areas where the replacement procedure for the tangential head differs are indicated between brackets and in italics. The only major difference between replacing a drag knife and a tangential knife is the positioning of the screws on the carriage plate. To remove the drag head, proceed as follows: 65.Take the knife holder out of the drag head. 66.Remove the front cover of the drag head by loosening the two (three) screws . 67.Loosen the flat cable by pulling the flat cable connector cover up. On both sides of the connector cover there is a small protuberance that you can pry up using a screwdriver. Gently pull the flat cable out of the connector 68.Remove the drag head. To do this, loosen the three screws with two counterclockwise rotations using a small diameter screw driver and lift the head upwards to remove it from the screws. To re-install the drag head, proceed as follows: 69.Place the head back onto the screws. Tighten the screws with a 1 1/2 clockwise rotation. Do not tighten them firmly because the height and position of the head still need to be adjusted. 70.Put the knife holder into the drag head. (Put the nose piece into the tangential head). 71. 51. 52. 72. 73.Secure the knife holder. 74. 53. 54. Note: This only applies to the re-installation of a drag head. Caution: Make sure the tip of the knife does not protrude.

75. 76.Adjust the height and position of the head. 77. 78.The standard operating procedure for doing this is described in the SummaSign Upgrade Kit (p/n 391-950). 55. Note: 56. The operating procedure described in the Upgrade Kit applies to a tangential head. However, the procedure to be followed for a drag head is roughly applicable.

Apart from the standard adjustment tools used in the standard operating procedure, you can use an ordinary 3" disk to adjust the height and position of the head. To do this, proceed as follows: a. Put the disk against the drag head (the same way as you would put an adjustment plate against it) to verify that the drag head is positioned perpendicularly to the cutting surface. b. Slide the disk under the knife holder. If the disk touches the knife holder this means that the head is mounted too low. Readjust the mounting of the head. 79. 80.Firmly tighten the screws once the drag head is properly positioned. 81.Put the flat cable back into the connector and close the connector. To ensure good contact, the flat cable must be positioned as deeply as possible and in the middle of the connector. 82.Remount the front cover of the head and firmly tighten the screws. 83.Proceed in the reverse order of removal. Make sure to firmly tighten all screws. 84. 57. Note: 58.

CLEANING THE DRIVE SYSTEM


After a time, the sleeves of the drive drum may become clogged with accumulated residue from the media. This situation may affect traction as the media will tend to slip between the pinch rollers and the drive sleeves. 1. To clean the drive sleeves, proceed as follows: First disable the sensors by covering them, or via the configuration menu (see 1.4.12 Media Sensor). Place the cutter in local operation. (See Section 1.2.2.) Local operation will allow you to use the control panel jogging keys, even when no media is loaded. Remove the backing from a piece of vinyl. Place the vinyl with the tacky side down between one of the pinch rollers and a drive sleeve. Lower the pinch roller arm. Use the and jogging keys to move the piece of vinyl backward and forward several times, until all residue is removed from the drive sleeves. Raise the pinch roller arm and remove the piece of vinyl media.

!NOTE!
One of the characteristics of a drum driven machine is that different thicknesses of media give different results while calibrating in the xdirection. So if a high accuracy is needed, the unit has to be recalibrated when different thicknesses of material are used. However, recalibrating is not needed for normal usage. Calibration: Load media in the machine (the wider the media, the more accurate the calibration). Start the SummaCutter Control program. Select Menu.

OPOS CALIBRATION (optional)


NORMAL CALIBRATION

The CALIBRATION OPOS sub-menu is used to calibrate the OPOS (Optical positioning system). This calibration is normally done in the factory. When the system is no longer working precisely a calibration test must be performed. Calibration allows to fix the exact distance between the knife tip and the sensor. To calibrate the optical system, proceed as follows: 1. Power up the unit and load a piece of black vinyl with a white backing. The load procedure is described in section 1. 2. Set the origin on a clean, blank part of the vinyl. 3. Press the on the LCD. key (MENU) key until the message INTERNAL TEST is displayed

FINE TUNING The Opos system has to be fine tuned when: the normal calibration didnt do the job. the Opos system has been removed from the head. The markers are extremely glossy (sometimes in cas of photoquality with thermal wax transfer). Calibration: Load vinyl. Make sure the Opos system is placed perpendicular on the media. Go to the internal test - system test-optical sensor. Remove the black piece of vinyl from the Opos sensor. Turn the left pot meter 15 turns CCW and the 8 turns CW . Place the sensor top above a piece of white matt media. Turn the right pot meter CCW until the LCD display shows a value higher than 300. Then turn CW until the value doesnt decrease anymore and turn 1/8 of a turn CCW. Place the sensor above a glossy piece of black material. Turn the left pot meter CCW until the display doesnt increase anymore (more than 8 turns is useless). This value is usually between 1950 and 2000. Continue with the normal calibration.

!NOTE!
When the OPOS system still fails to work properly, do the fine tuning on the media giving trouble. Change the matt white media with the troublesome media and change glossy black media with the marker on the troublesome media. If everything else fails just try to make the difference, between the readout above the markers and the readout above the media, more than 800. The left pot meter changes the gain and the right pot meter changes the threshold level between black and white.

MOTOR HOT
Cause: Heavy media can overload the motors, especially the X-motor. The P on the PCB calculates the power dissipated in the motors. When this dissipation becomes too high, the message MOTOR HOT appears. This is not a fatal error. After a while this message will disappear and the machine will continue its operation. Action: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Wait until the motor has cooled down to an acceptable level. Lower the speed using the menu and use a lower knife pressure if possible. Use lighter or smaller media. Check the cam rollers, replace any damaged cam rollers. Call CalComp for assistance. A system register may have changed the default value. Check whether the drive drum is turning smoothly (first switch the machine off and place the cam rollers in the up-position). Replace motor and/or drum.

ERROR IN X-AXIS
Cause: The drum motor cannot move to the required position. This is a fatal error. It can only be solved by turning the power off and then on again. This error is usually caused by a media crash in the machine. Action: 7. Remove the crashed media and restart the machine. Should this happen rather frequently, the cause can be : knife depth or pressure is not well set. bad tracking because an unstabilised media type is used. bad tracking because the humidity is too high or too low. bad tracking because an unapproved type of media is used. the media hit something on the floor while cutting. the media shows already different tracks, so that the media does not know which track to follow. 8. Lower the speed of the media. 9. Check whether the drive drum turns smoothly (first turn the power off and place the cam rollers in the up-position). 10.If the error in the x-axis happens at start-up, check the x-axis motor, the encoder connectors and the cables. 11.Replace the X-motor encoder. 12.Replace the PCB. 13.

ERROR IN Y-AXIS POSITION


Cause: The motor driving the machine head cannot move to the position wanted. This is a fatal error. It can only be solved by turning the power off and then on again. This error is usually caused by a media crash. Action: 14.Remove the crashed media and restart the machine. 15.Lower the speed and/or the knife pressure. 16.Check whether the head moves smoothly (first turn the power off and position the cam rollers on the outer edges of the media). 17.Check the y-axis motor and the encoder cables. 18.Replace the Y-motor. 19.Replace the PCB.

LOW LINE VOLTAGE


Cause: The secondary voltage of the transformer is measured by the P on the PCB. When it measures a value lower than the lower limit setting, the machine will give this error. This is a fatal error. Switching the power off and making a corrective action is the only solution. Action: 20.Measure the line voltage. Check whether the voltage selector at the back of the machine is set to the correct line voltage. The line voltage should be between the selected voltage +8% or -10%. 21.Check the secondary voltage of the transformer. It should be at least 22VAC. If that is not the case, replace the transformer. 22.Check the DC power on the PCB (on the power cable going to the machine interface board). It should be at least 27VDC. 23.Disconnect the motor cables, the encoder cables, the flat cable going to the head, the fan cable, the sensor cables and the 28V power cable going to the machine interface board, and switch the machine on again. 24.When you have done this, plug in the cables one by one until the energy consumer is found. Replace it. 25.Replace the main PCB.

REMOVING THE LEFT HAND COVER


To remove the left-hand cover, proceed as follows: 1. Remove the five screws holding the left cover in place. Two are located at the back, one at the top, one at the bottom and in front just under the baseplate Pay attention to where each of the screw goes. They should be returned to their original location when re-installed. 2. Gently tap the top of the cover. 3. Be careful not to tear the flatcable off the keyboard 4. Remove the connector. Play close attention to where the connector of the flatcable goes. It should be returned to its original location (top three pins uncovered) 5. Remove the cover. To re-install, proceed in the reverse order of removal. Make sure to firmly tighten all screws.

CAUTION

Make sure that you do not jam any wires between the cover and the side plate as this may cause considerable damage.

Procedure to flash from internal ROMs


General: There exist a critical point of time on which you may not switch of the machine while you reflash it. Normally if you wait long enough there will not occur any problems. In case something rare happens during reflashing and you are unable to boot the pcb then there exist a method to falsh the flash Roms from internal Roms. Procedure:
1. Do all the necessary stuff to expose the main PCB, make sure the unit is not powered on. 2. Put in MW9955 and MW9965 in (LO and HI are marked on the PCB) 3. Put jumpers next to the ROMs on 12 and 34 (this usually means that they all have to be put one pin lower). 4.Power the unit on, wait for at least 5 minutes (the cutter beeps if it is ready). 5.Power the unit down. 6. Remove the ROMs, put the jumpers back on position 23 and 45. 7. Power the unit back on and check whether the flashed PCB works. 8. Put everything back youve disassembled.

APPENDIX A
Removal of the left side
General
Under normal conditions, it is not advisable to remove the left side because the base is assembled with different fixtures and molds to ensure straightness of the base. However in some unexceptional conditions, it might be necessary to do so. The following procedure is a guideline to do so, but does not guarentee succes. Some unforseen things can happen which will make the unit unstable. Therefore the suggested test at the end of the explanation should be performmed meticolous to either ensure good performance of the machine or either suggest a special handling, done by a certified calcomp thechnitian, or a second operation guided over the phone with a calcomp technician. Also make sure that you a spare stralock for 8 as a spare since the one that will be removed will be damaged during removal.

Procedure
To remove the left side proceed as follows:

1. Take the machine of its stand. Put it on a steady and flat table.
1. !!Open the camrollers and leave the lever in that position until the top cover is back on the machine!!

2. Remove the left and right cover. (2 times 5 screws) 3. Remove the top cover. (4 screws - mind the washers, if any, between the cover and the side.) 4. Remove the headcover. (2 screws for the d and 3 for the t) Slide the head to the right. 2. !!Mind the two washers of the t-head, so they do not end up inside the head through magnetism !!

5. Measure the distance between the nose piece or knife holder and the cutting strip on the left and right. Write down and remember the values, you wil have to reassemble the unit in exact the same way. 6. Push the idler y-pulley to the side to take the tension of the y-belt. 7. Unscrew the y-belt (only the right screw situated on the left side of the headcarriage) 8. Release the idler pulley gently (so the spring does not jumps away). 9. Remove the idler pulley and the spring (in the mean time the y-belt will have to come out of the side plate.) 10.Remove the belt(s) from the x-motor(s). Do this by pushing the motor(s) towards the x- pulley and turning movement.

11.Unscrew the motor(s). 3 screws a piece. There is no need to disconnect them, just lay them apart. 12. Remove the x-pulley. (1 or 2 setscrews) 13. Remove the plastic endplate. This plate is held with only1 screw situated near the drum left). (up-

14.Unscrew the guiding rol near the machine. On the other side the rol is fixed with (removable) loctite so the screw on the left side should come loose the first. 15. Remove the two caps from the screws holding the rear guiding rol. Remove the rol. 16. Remove the star lock from the pinch roller bar. Remove the nylon bush. 17. Measure the distance between the base plate and the top beam. Also check the perpendiculrity between the top beam and the base plate. Write down and remember the values, you will have to reassemble the unit in exact the same way. 18. Put something soft between the base and the table and between the base and the top beam.

19. Unscrew the left steel plate. (6 screws) if it does not have to be replaced, then just put a little bit aside just enough to reach the faulty components. 20. Now the camroller assys or the headcarriage can be removed. The headcarriage sits between the outer camrollercarriages and has to be removed if there is a defect with the right camroller. 21. Remove and replace the faulty components.

3. !! If a Ccamroller assy is replaced, make sure the plastic cam inside the assy is 4. positioned the same way as the one the are removed!!

To reassemble:
22.Reseat hte left steel plate. 23.First secure the base plate with three screws, beginning with the one closest to the drive drum. Screw the first one almost completely in, the check whether the sideplate is perpendicular to the table then secure it. The hight of the base will be almost correct since the diameter of the hole in the siede plate for this screw is the smallest. Then secure the side plate to the base with the other two screws. 24.Secure the top-beam with three screw, beginning with the lowest one. check the hight and perpendicularity between the base and the top beam before thightining the screw. Adjust if necessary. Secure the top beam with the other two screws. 25.Proceed in the reverse order of removal starting from 16. 26. 5. CAUTION 6. While reinstalling the belt, make sure the right double pulley seats in its place 7. Also make sure the long y-belt follows the right path

Check the hight between the nose piece or knife holder and the cutting strip left and right, if they differ more then .3mm then the base has to be adjusted a little bit.

8. !! IMPORTANT !! 9. 10. If the unit is assembled, then do following test : 11. cutting dept test : 12. Load the widest vinyl available. 13. Set the knife depth critical on the right side 14. Check the knife over the full width of the machine, check for irregularity in 15. cutting dept - be critical. 16. If not in order reset the top beam and base plate or call for help 17. tracking test : 18. Do a couple of tracking test (preferably over 6m or more) to ensure the tracking 19. quality 20. If it fails the test then following action might be taken : 21. Check the sleeves for dirt 22. Check the brake on the roller guiding 23. Try switching the camrollers 24. Try and set the rear backscrews in the camrollerassy the same as the one you might 25. have removed. 26. Measure the pressure each camroller has and change if necesarry

APPENDIX C
Procedure to set the pinch roll lever play
General:
The amount of play the lever has is not critical, but there should be at least some. Otherwise you have troubles with tracking. The following procedure describes how to check it and how to recalibrate is the setting is off.

Procedure:
1. Remove the right hand cover. 2. Put the camrollers in the up position. Loosen the setscrew in the lever (item 7). 3. Put the camrollers down on the sleeves without media under them. 4. In order to avoid damage to the cam detection switch (blue switch, not visible on figure), loosen careful the cam detection ring (item 1 - 1 setscrew). 5. Stand in front of the machine. 6. Whilst holding the pinch roller bar (it 10) and the lever with one hand loosen the other setscrew in the lever. 7. Turn the pinchroller bar away from you whilst pushing it to the right, then turn it 3 degrees back. 8. Tighten the setscrew in the lever. 9. Check the play of the lever by measuring the distance between the bumper and the lever , this distance should be between 2 a 7mm. By play I mean that you can move the lever before the cams on the pinch roller bar begin to push the camroller upwards. 10.Put the camroller up and tighten the second setscrew on the lever. 11.Push the lever of the blue switch against the switch so you can reposition the cam detection ring again. 12.Turn the cam detection ring clockwise so that the long screw (it 4) is just under the end of the lever on the blue switch. Before tightening the setscrew be sure that there is no lateral play on the pinch roller bar

APPENDIX D
Procedure to set change the motor on a T-head
General:
Although a head is considered as a spare part on its whole (because fixtures are used in PR while assembling it) there exist a method to change the motor on its own.

Procedure:
1. For removal of the head and putting it back on the machine, refer to the service manual 2. Once the head is off and before taking off the motor check the tension of the belt and remember it. When you will replace the motor then the tension of the belt should be exactly the same (more or less). The tension this belt needs is not as much as one should think. 3. disconnect the motor from the head. 4. loosen the setscrew in the pulley on the motor in order to access more easily the hex screws 5. remove the motor from the head (two hex screw 4mm) 6. put the new motor on with the two hex screws you can set the belt tension, but do not secure the pulley on the motor yet. 7. connect the motor to the head and connect the head to the flatcable of the machine 8. start the machine in FSM mode (standard) 9. press the "menu" key until you come to "internal test" 10 press the "up arrow " until you get to knife calibration 11 press "enter" 10.press "2" this will set the motor on the head in its origin position. 11.turn the nose piece holder so that the two holes in it (there to hold the nose piece) face the back of the head. Be sure it is aligned with the head because you are now busy setting the mechanical zero point of the knife. If you are to far off then you will never be able to set the origin correct if you do knife calibration. It is here that in production a fixture is used to put the head in so that the mechanical origin is set almost perfect. 12.when you are sure that the nose piece holder is aligned and that you haven't turned the motor shaft , then you may secure the pulley on the motor shaft. to be sure press the "2" key again to check whether the origin point of the knife is correct (after pressing "2" the nosepieceholder should be aligned with the head and the two holes should be facing the back of the head.) 13.Power the machine down, the head is now ready to be remounted.
