    I researched this, and more generically OEE pretty extensively a couple years ago at a previous employer.

    Here is my two cents: the cost of entry is ridiculous based on the ROI for low to medium...

    Figured it out. Door has to be open, and use permissive button while tramming.

    Hermle C600U Spindle Lock

    We have an older Hermle C600U 5axis with the Heidenhain controller. We are trying to tram in a bore, but in hand jog mode it locks the spindle. Does anyone know how to unlock the spindle in hand jog...

    We are in the same boat. Was slow 6 months ago and now we are overwhelmed. The process we use is to bid only to our core customers, and core industries.

    We make parts for all industries, but our...

    You could EDM it for sure. We do some turn and burn, as well as internal threads where you could not get a tap or thread mill. I think the hardest part is going to be the length.

    That is a viable strategy. I think you should get with a precision manufacturing company that you are willing to share the design and intent with. My experience has been that GD&T often gets misused...

    Could you make this modular. Instead of one single piece, you have maybe 6 pcs that get attached then lapped in together?

    As a self identified noob, I wouldn't discount things you don't understand. I am currently working on a project where we are holding a .0005" profile across a 46" span. Certainly are not going to...

    I cant think of a swiss machine that can make a 47" long part.

    Without seeing what the actual part is, I would rough machine in a standard lathe, then grind between centers for the profile.

    I dont understand the necessity of having it all done in house. We do machining, grinding, and edm in house. Heat treat and plating we sub contract. But the vendors we use are within 15 miles....

    Maybe take a step back from the modern age of CNC and get a jig grinder. I have seem them go for very cheap. Put your part on an air bearing and holding that tolerance is no issue at all. Might be...

    Command Tool is one that I have been using for years. A litte more expensive than Maritool, but also USA made.

    Try talking to someone who isn't a buyer. At my current job, we sell to the engineers. Then the engineer tells procurement who to buy from.

    And full circle,

    I was able to get a parts list with exploded diagrams, as well as a write up for the adjustments that I need to make.

    If this information is use full to anyone else, shoot me...

    The manual should be the same for a 20-40 if someone has one of those.

    We are trying to adjust the outer guides for the saddle. The front guide has a single hex head screw to turn, but the rear...
  17. Looking for saddle diagram - Okamoto ACC20-36DX

    As the title states, I am looking for the saddle diagram found in the instruction manual for an Okamoto ACC20-36DX.

    We purchased this machine used so it did not come with any manuals. Any help is...

    I don't think a new company, or a very small company (under 10 employees) could manage the debt. But it is the cost of business for working with some of the big guys.

    The debt held in accounts...

    I dont know about sketchup, never used.

    I have done what you are talking about in Solidworks, Pro-e, and a bunch of different free "home remodel" software that I found online. Here is my take on...

    I would make an "L" shaped fixture and hold the part on the sides and the small side bottom with some sort of wedge clamps.

    Then I would use a facemill to cut the blue surfaces, and a slitting...

    I really liked this response.

    I have been working in aerospace for a few years. The biggest difference I encounter is that making a part to print is making it to print. In a previous career,...

    Not sure about your area of the world, but what about a similar generation Hurco. Takes up a little more floor space, but can handle more variety than a tap/drill machine.

    The model does not get converted to Gcode. Either the machinist will program the parts at the machine using conversational format, or it will be programmed offline using CAD software.

    We gave up on the synergy. Never had any bacteria or smell issues, but the residue on parts created some plating issues. We also never got the coolant to tap well at reasonable concentrations.
