    It's funny that running 3 8 hour shifts in a software seat at the same time and then doing nothing for 16 hours is considered different than running 3 consecutive shifts for the same 24 total hours...

    The Rouge tools are the shit. No bullshit pricing games. Good performing tools. I'm a fanboy of this stuff.

    Mazak had all but one of the O-rings and seals needed to do the rebuild, so we ordered the one missing O-ring from McMaster Carr and it arrived this morning for the install. The whole spindle had to...

    Today the ATC arm's positions are reported correct, the arm springs, knuckles, plungers are rebuilt with new parts. There is a problem with the drawbar now. The Drawbar is apparently hesitating to...

    Yeah it would be cool if they were sold with the manuals, that's how we sell them here, but we're not professionals, we're just a shop selling our used machines at times. The 2 we've sold to date...

    I guess the machine is still tossing tools, so hydraulic didn't do it. There are some other theories.

    The RTS apparently requires some macro variables that we've unfortunately begun to use for...

    I finally got a chance to see and talk to the technician. This is the same person who settup the machine- he was here for 5-6 days setting up the pair. He tested pullforce today at 1900lbs which is...

    Good point. I couldn't afford it anyway. We pay people pretty decent money and the machines have to run reliable and smooth or we're taking a bath. One machine down often puts 1-3 other machines...

    I actually had a settup guy tell me today, well, we could put in ____ (a program) ... but we'd have to put someone on this machine all day because they would have to hand load the tools.

    I hope they can fix the tool changer spindle throwing tools thing Monday. Somehow I feel like they will get here and parts will be required, extending that out. I'm wondering how many things we...

    By the way I heard today there are 2 spindle designs, and we have the one that is incapable of detecting a false tool load with sensors. I guess in order to get a safe CAT-40 tool change, you have...

    Floor integrations on machines tend to go a little long. PDF supporting documentation is something I'm going to literally hold hostage for the next order. I'm tired of feeling helpless asking for...

    Our M30-70's have the cyclonic filters, so no filter elements. We use an X-air drum vac to pull the old coolant, and because we were changing coolant, we just cleaned sumps and refilled tanks with...
