    Thanks everyone I will check Dell. I was also getting price as high as 5000.00 Canadian. I took the recommended requirement off the mastercam site to the computer store and asked for something in the middle of the requirements . So this time I will take 2000.00 dollars with me and see what I can get. Cheers

    Angled slots

    I have plate with about 100 slots in it. they are .750 wide 3 inches long. they go in a 30 deg angle .875 deep. I have the ability to tilt my head at 30 degs . Is there a way to tell mastercam the tool is at 30 deg. Thanks screen.mcam

    The material we are drilling is graphite.

    Tool break monitor

    we don't get continuity thru our speeder spindle, maybe because of ceramic bearings. And I was told a laser is bigger then the drill so it wouldn't detect a broken drill. I was trying to find a way to energize the work piece and hook a light up so when the drill touches the work piece the light goes on. Maybe I'm not thinking straight.

    Tool break monitor

    Does anyone know of a tool break monitor that will work with a 20 micron drill? I am drilling 10 pieces with 1300 hole in each piece and would like a light or something to alert me when the tool breaks. not sure if there is something like this available.

    Micro drills

    Thanks for all the input I will check out these options.
  12. Looking for some options on how to set the length offset on a 30 micron drill. we have been doing it with a portable micro scope , but we are not very efficient right now , looking for a quicker option . thanks
  13. Thanks for all the info . We have a company coming from Toronto to help us with this. I think it will be a big investment but hopefully it works out.
  14. we are running it on a brand new hurco. but that may have to change . I know it can be done our competitor is doing now. I will contact hurco and see what they say. Thanks
  15. I know that this exists, but not sure where to look for it. What I want to do is energize my work piece, so when my tool comes in contact with the top of the part it automatic zeros my z axis. What our customer wants, is to keep the hole within .0003 in depth over 540 hole our drill dia is .020 . the problem is the material is graphite and the top surface is not 100% flat. Does anyone have experience with this?
