    We use Kluber and Fag grease in our 5x machines, yes, it's like $75 bucks a tube. FYI, our service rep said someone tried to go cheap and put in Mobile 1, the grease caked in the lines and everything...

    I did not read thru all the responses, but I will say that you seem to have great attitude and some sort of plan. Come to Wisconsin, we would hire you in an instant.

    Talk to an Iscar rep, we have a bunch of their facemills that use the two opposite sides of the standard APKT insert that we would otherwise toss out. It works great, and inserts are "free".

    If you only have a few months until time of production, the clock is really ticking.. You will need some sort of foundation to put that new machine on, that's a month right there to do it right....

    I have a hard time trying to picture what you are trying to cut, but If you have a High end Hermle, and you can't do it, you will be hard pressed to do it elsewhere. If your using ball endmills many...

    I program High feed tools as form tools to get the exact shape, rather than cheat the radius. The Hanita and Kyrocera high feed tool's form measures exactly the same. Either the tool is ground by the...

    I only have my post using the .H files, I believe Heidenhain can read several types of files, but I never had any reason to look into it. I guess what I am trying to say is, it does not really matter...

    Your comment is correct. "it creates the code" and then simulates it. This means CAMPlete creates the code, NOT your cam system. I use Powermill, I can create a .H file for the 640 Heidenhain control...
