AutoSet 1500 Troubleshooting
AutoSet 1500 is designed to let you know when fault conditions occur. This chapter

Before you reset AutoSet, you want to be sure that you have completely corrected the
problem, and that you have determined if the press shutdown because of a nuisance stop
or a tonnage fault. Here is the difference between the two:

tonnage cause AutoSet to shutdown the press.
A tonnage fault occurs when the tonnage has fluctuated enough to exceed the
high and/or repeatability setpoints being used by the load monitor. A fault
may be caused by a various die malfunctions. To correct the problem,

have completely corrected the problem! Failure to do so will
result in damage to the press and tooling.
