    Universal Robots UR3 Robot review

    We bought 2 Universal Robots UR3 robots in late 2016. The Robots were sold to us with pneumatic grippers and they had one purpose in life, to unload tubes from CNC turning centers. We make ~8500...
  2. We had batteries go and couldn't get them...

    We had batteries go and couldn't get them replaced before a brown out so it was needing to be re-homed.

    We were able to eventually get MC Machinery to quote what we originally asked for and they...

    I got another contact in Michigan, we're going to send them an RFQ tomorrow to see if they can service the machine.

    MC machinery never replied to our e-mail when we requested they remove the...

    I'm on Windows 7 and windows started acting funny yesterday, Google chrome is hanging and crashing, and other softwares like Kipware won't open, and I looked into my drives and a file named "cm-lock"...

    With Doosan, Hurco, and Mazak, phone support is also free. With Yama Seiki I don't know because I've never owned a used YSI machine. The Doosans we have 2 used, 7 new and our first was a used...

    Agreed 100%. It's appears to be extortion, and it's embarrassing for a company to have that stupid of a policy. It takes a company that had some opinion they could be a solution provider, and it...

    We paid it under a manufacturing agreement with another company on our ONE machine that we had proof we paid for (we provided that proof at one point and after a lot of stressful and unnecessary...

    Thanks for the advice, I will give them a call and see what they can do. I was referred another service this morning by a former MITS EDM machinist, and that service said MC Machinery was...

    I think our batteries went dead a while ago. We were hoping to find a service tech who was third party so we could get off the crazy train with MC Machinery (the headquarters for mitsubishi EDM's in...
  10. Does anyone other than MC Machinery service Mitsubishi MD PRO III EDM machines?

    We have a Mitusbishi EDM that we bought used. At the time we thought Fanuc made the best EDM and I still do. I knew a shop owner who bought one for 135K and I wanted to buy the same machine for the...

    An applicant signed an offer letter today. Thanks to all who participated. We accept resumes at any time to file, so if you have a desire to be considered in the future go ahead and submit a resume.

    In production parts we avoid 3D whenever possible. It's a time suck so you want to make the part by the most time efficient means possible.
  13. I have a highly motivated applicant with 2 years...

    I have a highly motivated applicant with 2 years of mastercam experience right now to interview monday. I'm hoping he's the rain man, because then we'll have a 6 figure guy who only has 2 years of...

    I own a company, I can do things, but I'm working 72 hours a week, it's Saturday I'm at work, Memorial day I'll be at work. If I sound desperate it's because my company is successful and I can't...
  15. Well honesty is nice. I'm more used to guys...

    Well honesty is nice. I'm more used to guys saying they can settup machines and then 3 months later we have the world's best paid operator who never settup a machine. It's a weird time. Guys are...
  16. That's the way I see it. And hopefully...

    That's the way I see it. And hopefully eventually we're not in as urgent of a position and we can move some employees in a training program and do some cross training so we don't need guys who can...

    The programmer is like a company rendering a product (the work). The company he works for is like a customer. If the programmer can't respond to the needs of the customer, the customer should find...

  19. I can see what you mean. I believe the invoices...

    I can see what you mean. I believe the invoices are written in an odd way that the material can fluctuate in price later and require compensation as well, AKA if we buy today, and five months later,...
  20. Yeah I don't understand why with the Raw material...

    Yeah I don't understand why with the Raw material surcharge stable, the price has to fluctuate 40% on the finished good. It seems like they just got confident and decided to price gouge.

    Yeah 3+2 post. We don't need simultaneous 5 axis cutting.
  22. We machine this stuff and scrap the turnings for...

    We machine this stuff and scrap the turnings for 18 cents per lb all the time. It would seem pretty logical that they could recover raw material from the 90 percent of the stock we cut and...
  23. The quote had rms (raw material surcharge) moving...

    The quote had rms (raw material surcharge) moving about 3 cents or 1.5 percent of the 40% implying that majority motion was just price motion.

    17-4 is 17% chromium, 4% nicle, 4% copper, so not a...
  24. Competitive mill run pricing on 17-4 bar stock?

    We bought 4 mill runs from carpenter tech in February and got to a reorder point for four more now in December and quotes are 40% higher per pound.

    Anyone know which mills are competitive for...

    The old employee had a dealer dongle for his work supporting a dealer for onsite training when he wasn't working for us (that other half of the year), and he made a deal with me to exchange his post...
