  • Diamondback stopping mid index

    I have been running my Diamondback for almost 3 years with no index issues. Recently I reconfigured my shop so I changed the direction of printing from clockwise to counter clockwise. At first everything was fine but now sometimes (happening more frequently) when the servo goes to index the fork that grabs the knob pulls back and the spin stops mid index. Any clue what is causing this? Also I tried switching back to clockwise and it never does it going that direction.

      Greetings,

      The M&R Service Department suggests this solution:

      Replace the clevis cylinder. Sounds like the cylinder is not going all the way in.
      If you have additional timely needs, the quickest solution is to contact the M&R Service Department directly.

          If the clevis cylinder was bad wouldn't it do the same thing no matter which direction the press is indexing? It only does this when indexing counter clockwise.

            Here is additional information from the M&R Service Department:

            Looking at the video looks like cylinder is weak causing the clevis fork to back out. You can try to extend the stroke of the cylinder by adjusting the rod end piece that is attached to the cylinder shaft. I would definitely replace the cylinder.

              Thanks for the feedback. Can you let me know what part number that is? It is a Diamondback S.
