    No direct experience here, but the Mori DCG machines are impressive from a design & construction point of view. The iron seems very well thought out. That being said, I can imagine that dual ball...

    If you haven't done so already, go out and buy a copy of Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends & Inlfuence People." Pour a glass, sit down & read a chapter or two.

    First of all, thank's for coming back with an update.

    Weather you enjoy the new job role or not, you've certainly learned a ton, and that alone is a positive.

    Maybe now is a good time to have a...

    Perhaps a different question to be asked - Should we expect the obvious " corporate spies" of presumed Chinese firms wondering the show, taking obsessive photos & notes of products, as in years past?

    Not so simple. "Herd Immunity" varies with how infectious the disease is. For measles, the number is around 95%.

    It depends on the minimum corner radius. IE- where the smallest diameter of the trunnion transitions into the faces.

    If you can swing it, a full-radius dog-bone insert would be best. Could cut the...

    My understanding is that the code gets posted to the CNC in normal G-code. The 'nurbs' simply translated into XYZ. It's then up to the control to interpret all of the incoming moves, and smooth/tweak...

    Tool setters inside the machine enclosure, or in the magazine offer a few things. First, they can set tool lengths automatically. That saves time, but also reduces risk of a TLO being input wrong,...

    Understood. My comment about right angle heads was just food for thought. If you were wanting to work on the side of plates, it would require an aftermarket right-angle head, like a Lyndex-Nikken,...

    I'm assuming you're speaking specifically to the fact that you bought an Okuma mill? Don't take it from me. Do some homework on graphics. Okuma's graphics are pretty powerful.

    The MVR I ran in the past didn't have auto coordinate/axis swapping, or if it did, no one was aware of it. (97' model I think, with a Fanuc 15M) We would switch to G18 or G19 mode for drilling &...

    Another thing to think about is 5-sided cutting. A lot of times, these bridge mills will come with programmable right-angle heads, and there's a good reason for that. Say you're working on a big...

    While the Mitsubishi AJX is a good cutter, it's old tech by now.

    What is it that makes this "deal" so attractive?

    Like I said before, length of tools is what will highlight the biggest difference between 40 & 50 tapers. You can do a lot with a 3" high-feed mill...

    #1 - Big red flag here... You're trying to "sweep" a ring-gage, in a Horizontal spindle, with what I presume is a 'test indicator' such as an Interapid? I assume a test indicator, as you used the...

    I'm assuming that by "Bridge Mill" you mean a BIG machine, and not something sized like an Okuma Genos.

    Personally, I don't know about it. Big machines usually end up with long tools to...

    I would be curious to know where the runout is coming from. Is it the holder, collet, etc...?

    Anyway, if you can't improve the runout, ease up on the depth of cut since you are cutting a...

    The fact that your Helical tool will run for 30 minutes is fairly impressive. I'm assuming this is a (mostly) internal contour that you're cutting. Regardless, you have to get the chips out of the...
