System solution
Adopt vector control 1 to control engraving machine. The line speed is given by AI1 analog terminal. The start/stop is controlled by digital terminal X1. Corectly set the motor parameters of variable speed drive, controlled by multi-steps V/F curve. Thus the engraving machine can get stronger torque.
Through the motor nameplate, we can calculate the base running frequency of motor, and the group of P9 motor parameters:
The base running frequency of motor f: 133/200=X/380. So X = 252.7Hz. We set f = 250Hz.
Motor poles: n = 60*f/n = 60*133/2000 = 3.99. So the number of pole pairs of motor is 4. So this is 8 pole motor. P9.01 = 8.
Rated speed of motor: r1 = 60*250/4 = 3750r/min. Because there's error for the real rated speed, generally smaller, the real rated speed can be set, r2 = 3700r/min. That is, P9.02 = 3700 r/min.

Function code setting
The original function code parameters are: P0.03=0, P0.04=1, P0.06=1, P0.08=5, P0.09=5, P0.11=400, P0.13=400, P0.14=5, P0.15=400HZ, P5.00=2, P9.01=4, P9.02=1500 r/min, P9.03=3.7 kW, P9.04=7.7A, P9.05=4.0A
According to this setting, the torque of grinding castings is not strong. We notice the running parameters of V&T variable speed drive: running frequency is 106.8Hz, the output current is varied in the range of 0.9A ~ 1.1A.
The correct function parameters are:
...
If set a V/F multi-step curve point, can increase the torque of variable speed drive better: P4.00=1, P4.05=133HZ, P4.06=58%, P4.07=250HZ, P4.08=100%. Now the running parameters of V&T variable speed drive: running frequency is 80Hz, the output current is varied from 1.8A to 2.0A. The torque of grinding castings is increased obviously.

Attention
From the above example of different parameters setting of variable speed drive, it's important for input the correct parameters for the drive according to motor nameplate. This makes the torque of motor larger, thus meeting the demands of the customers better.
The parameters setting of V/F curve is better if the according voltage of the frequency is increased 10%. For example, 133Hz is for 200V. Then increase the voltage to 200V, this will be better. ...
During the adjustment, note the output current and running frequency of variable speed drive, and observe the surface of grinding castings. This is the factors to evaluate if the parameters setting can meet the requirement.
