    I think that is a pretty bold and untrue statement. It all depends on your industry/goods you sell or service. What you are describing, IMHO, is the very definition of the race to the bottom if you...

    On a Haas, It's G187 P1 = rough
    G187 P2 = medium
    G187 P3 = finish
    You can also add an E value for max corner rounding on each of those. The difference is, I think even setting a G187P1E.1 the...

    I suppose I am not working to the tolerance where I would see a benefit in tool life and/or finish with shrinks or hydraulics. We cut aluminum and brass all day everyday at current job. Shrink would...

    Interesting, but seems like any gains you might get are immediately taken away with a gage length that is 3x longer than needed. :crazy:

    Since we started talking about eggs. The yolks are orange in the Bandung, Indonesia area. No idea if it was because of different feed for the chickens or what. They also didn't refrigerate them in...

    You missed the second part of my statement. Make the machine default to high accuracy, but allow the user to disable. On your example the user could disable (or enable faster positioning or whatever)...

    Whhaatt?? That is just flat out asinine. Why isn't that standard (look ahead)? They should configure these machines out of the box to cut everything to size AS PROGRAMMED, not having to enable an...

    [/B]Technically, nothing, they will both adjust where the tool is cutting.
    BUT if you use the wear offset you can track tool wear. So if for example you are adjusting your tool offset a couple thou...

    That is ridiculous!! If you were trying to hold tenths, I could see needing to compensate somehow with accuracy codes, or a slower feedrate, but for .010" ?!?! ouch! :ack2:

    Double edged sword. I certainly won't advocate running at the tolerance limit, but a part here and there is fine IMO. I worked with a guy some years ago, very good lathe guy, but he busted his balls...

    Actually Haas machines with the smtc run the tool change on the probe at a reduced rate, similar to assigning it as a heavy tool. Not sure on other MTB's but I agree that I can't imagine a straight Z...

    I suppose the real point I was making comparing the tool change and/or chip to chip time is - What percentage of people take advantage of that? If you have a robot loader maybe saving 1 minute per...

    See this is something that should be brought up more often IMO (thread is way OT now so.. :o). You have to either -

    1) adjust parameters in these little 30 tapers to get them to cut right
    2) slow...

    On what, their 1985 YAM's...? Haas toolchange (with a sidemount carousel) is around 3 seconds, a speedio or robodrill'ish 1-1.5 secs. Gee I can almost think what a "oh tools have changed in both...

    Do you really need .1mm (.004") wire for some reason? I think that could be some of the reasons for no quotes, or maybe quotes that are sky high. We run .01 & .008 wire (sorry we make our own product...

    Weelllll, that's a pretty harsh critique but I won't disagree with your opinions as they are just that. One text I did not respond to and you sent me an email as I was going to bed last night.

    This number sticks in my head, but I won't swear by it... I *think* to have 100 "lids" (.063x1.5x2" ish) gold plated is around $500. So--- $5/each? Keep those costs in mind in your research.....

    I've never seen (in person) a holder pull out from a 40 taper either. Either the machine alarms out, or a part gets thrown. I was one time running a "quick and dirty job" of facing down some parts...
