Have you looked at the French hobby machinist web site ?
If any of this is useful then post some Photos of your machine :)

Hi,
thank you for your suggestions. I have not had any time to go through it yet but I will in next few days. There is a lot to take in with this machine. I have stripped out all the TNC155 controls and planning to use LinuxCNC with mesa card but again lot to go through there is a lot of mesa cards to choose from and for some reason I am having issues getting help from them. I got reply to my first email but nothing after that, not sure what is going on.
I need to find replacement for the original servo drives if anyone had any suggestions I would definitely appreciate it. They are 190 VDC servos with only tachogen feedback (I can get rid of tachogen and install optical encoder no probs if needed) and there are linear scales on the axes.
I just realised that I only have detail photos of the stripout but dont have many photos of whole machine.
Example of my struggle is the hose in the second photo, I have absolutely no clue what it is for? any suggestions?

thank you
Josef

My guess is that "hose " is for the horizontal spindle hydraulic tool release , there should also be one for the vertical spindle.
You might reconsider gutting all of the electrical wiring ,micro switches,transformers , Etc. before preceding on your retrofit .
For instance , why not use the existing servo motors and their drives as they were part of Mikron's overall original machine design .
Mikron designed and built very high quality machines ,and still do. Replacing the servo motors and their drives with something that is equal or better would not be easy or cheap. Does it have the Heidenhain LS 403 series of linear scales ?
Replacing the TNC155 controler with LinuxCNC sounds good .
However
It is your sandbox , your Mikron , and your conversion . I just wonder what it is that you want to end up with .

Might read ---- Hardware & Machines - Milling Machines- Retrofitting Mikron WF41C thread .
Photo hungry as always -

Hi, yeah I was being stupid and just ignored the fact that it has the horizontal spindle. The hose is for sure the tool release.
I was considering using everything including TNC155 but it has two problems learning new tricks is one problem I found the tnc155 very difficult to use and second but more significant problem is space I can not afford to have control cabinet almost double the size of the machine.
I want to end up with similar control interface I had on my router.
I will try to use some modern servo drives with existing servos I might throw encoders on those servos to make it run better and if this all fails I will have to figure out how to make original servo drives fit in the footprint I need.
It has LS403. TNC 155 definitely has to go there is no way around that it is so massive and ancient.
