    Like Mike said, you don't have a small lathe you can barfeed these on? Assuming they're not already cut of course.

    20k/month is 666/day = 43 seconds per part over an 8 hour shift.

    If they're as...

    That's the one I was looking at.

    I think I will skip it. If it was any good they'd still be making them that way...

    ISO is how everyone refers to them over here. ANSI numbers are usually printed on the box somewhere for reference, but nobody uses them, including the manufacturers themselves.

    I will agree with...

    I see two possibilities;

    1. You cut those jaws using an adaptive toolpath from Fusion using 10 million IPM feedrates that you saw Titan yelling about in one of his videos. This combined with the...

    The only time I've ever seen this is on drawings that I know for a fact were generated by Creo, and the only two relevant results returned by google are this thread and the one you linked...

    Nothing I can do about the pressure, it's a gear pump with no bypass. It's supposed to be entirely free flowing round the circuit and back into the tank...
  8. Harrison Alpha "U" Slant bed type - anyone familiar?

    Never seen one of these in person, but see them come up for sale occasionally. Maybe possibly might consider buying one, but cautious of the unknown.

    The bed arrangement is very unusual, looks...
  9. What kind of hose for oil circuit spindle chiller?

    Need to rehose the chiller circuit on one of our older Hurcos. It uses hydraulic oil, and it gets pretty cold on the outlet side.

    Current hoses are basic 3/8" PU tubing, I think they are kinked...

    Yep, although PowerPC is still going strong in it's niche.

    Take a look at Raptor Computing if you weren't already aware of them, for a little glimmering of hope...

    Yes, I forgot about that!

    Nonetheless, I kinda fail to see how this move benefitted AD in any way. All it did was push users to stick to whatever older version they had rather than upgrade, which...

    Surely that's just not the intended use case?

    I demoed this system years ago and it is clearly designed for first ops on raw stock...

    Chip management and coolant configuration is definitely a weak point of Hurcos. The coolant tank/pump configuration/chip removal on our VMX64 is truly terrible. But it is a solid machine otherwise....

    That's only true of text encoded files, which most are not in reality.

    It's perfectly common and normal to encode data files as packed binary, and if for example you write a struct of ints out to...

    They have added back the ability to open 32 bit files in one of the recent updates.

    Edit: Sorry Seymour, somehow missed that you'd just written that!

    If surface finish is your primary concern then you should stick to square inserts. They have significantly better insert location repeatability than any of the 8+ sided systems, which means more...

    So I got around to this finally, and the lathe has been running without problems for the last week or so.

    In the 90's and early 2000's (maybe still idk) Autodesk had a policy of using token copy protection methods only, leaving their software trivial to pirate.
