  1. 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,...
  2. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  8. The mazak phone support is like asking my kid to...

    The mazak phone support is like asking my kid to talk to strangers on the phone. He's 5. It's not functional, but they pick up. In their defense, Mazak makes too many versions of machines for...
  9. He's worth good money, but for us, he was getting...

    He's worth good money, but for us, he was getting paid for a whole year, working half the year. At the new employer, he's working more hours every day, and working all year, so they are getting at...
  10. I finally got an edit, initially arcs flipped...

    I finally got an edit, initially arcs flipped without compensation, and we tested that, got the comp flipped, it now will run an upper right face in y-axis properly. We ran the original code and it...

    My Ellison Service is fairly good, granted Haas has an excellent service reputation. I think with Doosan you will need less service, but then that's an opinion from what I've heard, and I don't have...
  12. My machine is pre- resolution to that engineering...

    My machine is pre- resolution to that engineering flaw of not being super rigid with regard to the forward mount of the trunion just being a leg hanging out in space. I think the limited Z travel is...

    The guy we bought the vcu from was selling the mazak to get a haas umc 750 5 axis. I was surprised about that at the time.
  14. That first part just means a programmer who was...

    That first part just means a programmer who was leaving us offered a trade for a post he hasn't yet delivered in 6 weeks. I gather its a time problem not an ethics issue so if I could get a post...
  15. Anyone have an opensource Mazak 500a-5x post for Mastercam?

    I've got a Mazak VCU-500a-5x, (5 axis with y aligned trunion tilt axis, and 500mm rotary) and a programmer offered me a deal to write a post in trade for gap health coverage when he took a higher...

    Good for you. Maintenance can be a joke sometimes when you cant get any and you're paying for it.

    I have a hurco mill and 2 doosans, get the doosan.

    There may be posts that use 3 different planes to control an operation, but I don't have any of those, I am only aware of combos that use one for WCS, and another for T&C, or for an example of an...
  19. The subspindle planes WCS is a copy of Top which...

    The subspindle planes WCS is a copy of Top which is located on the transferred part face on the subspindle, and which essentially drives the G55 second side Z0.0 face output and tells Mastercam where...
  20. Upper right Y axis Face milling only. I don't...

    Upper right Y axis Face milling only. I don't believe this problem is applicable to lower right which is C axis only because the TT1800SY has no lower Y axis. Doosan does have a sexy new twin that...
  21. Correct in the upper right combo. (Initially I...

    Correct in the upper right combo. (Initially I reported it with toolpath images and a zip to go as bad code, but I didn't know it was simply flipping G02s and 3's until I figured out how to use Cimco...
  22. One of the guys made a comment about training...

    One of the guys made a comment about training just kind of face saving for the reseller to make me look stupid, and I'm not saying I'm excellent but I'm somewhere in the vicinity of average in the...

    It seemed like CNC software was looking into this as indicated by their team on Emastercam.com but the post over there just evaporated. It's gone. I don't have a mill turn sim mod turned around...

    We ran the code and it ran like it backplotted like it ran. When I divide X by 2, to correct for diameter mode, and then use simple math to replace G03 with G03.1, then G02 with G03, then G03.1 to...

    I was able to talk to Chris from Postability and deduce from talking to him that dividing X by 2 for fanuc milling backplotting of the Mill turn milling op, I was able to derive a correct view of...
