  1. I have the okay to replace one of our Bridgeport Mills this year. I am considering something like a Trak mill. I need something that has a similar foot print and also can be run manually. Any recommendations?
  2. A better question would be, how do you make sure the people in shop clean the tool holders?
  3. I've been using MC Wire for over 20 years on Mitsubishi Machines. I am currently using MC 2020 to program 3 Mits. machines, one of them being a new MV1200-R. I have no problem programming tapers. I don't quite understand what you are trying to accomplish and where your struggles lie.
  4. Soft it machines like D2 but It's a pain to grind after hardening.
  5. What is the most efficient way to program countersinks? The flat on the end varies . There doesn't seem to be a spelled out standard for these tools. I have been physically measuring tools before I program them.
  6. It has been my experience with X+ crashing in 2018 is when I open a part that was previously programmed and try outputting a setup sheet with doing a regen.
  7. Possibly it could be your plunge parameter settings??
  8. Have spoke to the engineer of the part? Possibly that small of a radius isn't necessary and was over looked in the design. I run into that quite often.
  9. what do you have here in the post processor drop down?
  10. We have 4 of them here but I'm not involved with them . They are used here in production, engraving our light cases. examples: https://www.zippo.com/collections/lighters?page=2&sort_by=price-descending
  11. Does anyone have a sample file they could share?
  12. If I understand it correctly, if I have a complex part and want to use optirest, I can set up a stock model using the previous operations to use for the rest mill setup?
  13. I'm trying to grasp the use of stock models, when? how? why?
