Mandrel Stop Error - RK-7XX-3

Freeset® mandrel STOP (Service warning)

If your Freeset tool becomes inoperable and the following message is displayed, then you may have a service block activated on your tool.  The service block provides preventive maintenance warnings at intervals you specify.  The tool is supplied with intervals specified by RivetKing®, and although not suggested, they can be disabled.  This error occurs when the tool counters for preventive maintenance have expired.



CHECK PREVENTITIVE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS

Connect your tool via USB to a computer running RivetKing-freeset-manager.

The values on this screen are set to the recommended service amounts. The tool will automatically prevent operation (mandrel stop error) once the values on the right become greater than the values on the left. The values on the right provide the service technician with the running total of use to be used to determine the level of service needed. Changing the values on the right will void the warranty.

 


 

INCREASING THE PREVENTITIVE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS

Once service has been performed then the values on the left may be adjusted (doubled). This will remove the Mandrel Stop error and allow for use of the tool.

 


 

DISABLING THE PREVENTITIVE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS (Not suggested)

If service and or preventative maintenance is to be ignored, then these values to the left of “x1000[rivet] may also be set to 0. Changing these values are acceptable but not suggested.  Changing the values on the right will void the warranty.
