    Default Tell me all about the Deckel CNC 3M control

    Hi all,

    How does the Deckel 3m compare to the Dialog 4.

    What are it's strong points and weaknesses.

    How hard is it to change over the CRT to a LCD?

    I have only operated the 3m machine. I have 2 3m fp4nc's. From what I heared the 3m was the more expensive control option if that has any significance. The negatives I can think of are , no dnc and because it was a less popular option there are less of these machines around so less spares. I like operating it, quite intuitive.

    Don't have much to add other than that I helped a friend set one up and flipped through his programing manual when doing so. Seemed to have a bunch of built in 3D surfacing routines.

    Doubt they would be used much these days but it hinted at a more capable processor than my Dialog 4 to be able to run those routines.

    I like the 3m it vectors to position and is faster in production runs than the d4. ( I have both) It Programs like Fanuc controls.
    It's limited memory storage can be a problem at times.
    if you use the subroutines and canned cycles it is fine
    It is every bit as capable as a D4 machine in accuracy and functionality but slightly faster in cycle times.
    Make sure you have the parameter list on hard copy in case something goes wrong
