Seimens 840D SL vs Heidenhain iTNC 530 HSCI control on Jobs LinX 5 axis gantry mill?
Considering a Jobs LinX Compact 5 axis gantry mill and want to know the differences between the two available controls. The machine will be used for one off tooling, so quick setup and ease of function is very important. Interested in capabilities that are important to one off parts, things like tool setup, program editing features, program restart function allowing easy startup in the middle of a program, etc. How do these two controls stack up against each other and what are their pros and cons versus each other? I have only used controls like HAAS, Yasnac, Fanuc, Mazak, etc. I have a little experience with Fagor, also.
P.S. Fidia control is possibly available, also. Any thoughts on Fidia controls?
