    Good thing I have 600, LOL

    I seriously doubt, in my shop, running my parts, that thing will ever pull more than 50-60 amps.

    My lathe states 33 KVA on the tag. It is on 20 amp fuses, and runs...
  2. What year is this Kitty? Cause, that is just...

    What year is this Kitty? Cause, that is just ridiculous.

    Specs from the brochure for the Doosan I am looking at: Pallet change: 8 seconds. Chip to chip tool-change 2.3 seconds. Tool pre-call...
  3. This is exactly why I am here! Your drilling...

    This is exactly why I am here! Your drilling holes to gain another 4 indexes is the perfect example. I never would have though of that!
  4. Yea, well aware. The parts are small, weigh mere...

    Yea, well aware. The parts are small, weigh mere ounces. Easy to span the two in jaws with two fingers while the vise is snugged.
    The ones in Pitbulls/mandrels pretty much hold themselves in place...
  5. No doubt in my mind, 4 Brother set up on these...

    No doubt in my mind, 4 Brother set up on these parts (one of the 4 needed parts in each machine) would absolutely run circles around a horizontal.
    Time - for - time. In one 8 hour shift, the...

    Just don't forget to read post# 48. You have seen this stock Andy.
  7. Exactly why I said the robot would have to feed 4...

    Exactly why I said the robot would have to feed 4 different machines each running A/B OPs of all 4 parts!
    Probably two robots, because I don't think one would be able to keep up (actually I know it...
  8. I would love to agree with you Greg! And, if this...

    I would love to agree with you Greg! And, if this was just one part? I would really be inclined to do so.
    But, its not. It is 4 separate parts x 1000/ea/wk. Two of the stock blanks I don't think the...
  9. Unfortunately, that someone is ME! And, I'm kinda...

    Unfortunately, that someone is ME! And, I'm kinda tired of it. Joe is doing it for one shift. And, doing it well. But, he wont do it forever.
    He came here to learn. And, learn he is. I'm glad he is...
  10. I wish! I have been thinking about this for...

    I wish! I have been thinking about this for years.
    I even have a thread floating around here somewhere wondering why you never see a bar-feeder on a multi-tasker.
  11. If a horizontal comes in here, two machines...

    If a horizontal comes in here, two machines leave. Yea Doosan says that is an 80KVA machine (200amps). Maybe at what? 200% spindle load in tough material?
    Haas says a VFss is an 80 amp machine. Mine...
  12. Good post. I appreciate the input. One thing that...

    Good post. I appreciate the input. One thing that needs to be stated about this:
    I've been making these parts for years now. I have a very reliable process dialed. Most of the tools that are in the...
  13. That never occurred to me! Yea, that could make...

    That never occurred to me! Yea, that could make for a bad day if the stone will only turn in 90' increments at the change out station.
  14. Looking at a Doosan NHP4000 which actually rapids...

    Looking at a Doosan NHP4000 which actually rapids FASTER! than the Brother. By a lot :eek: 2362ipm for the Doosan vs. 1969 for the Brother.
    I don't know the acceleration rates? Or even how to...
  15. This right here ^^^^^^. I think it would be far...

    This right here ^^^^^^. I think it would be far more pleasant feeding a pallet-pool vs. 4 hungry Brothers.



    My plan would be the same as the plan in my other current thread. Double station...

    Three of those 6" Kurts fit. Four 5"s would not. So, three 6"s it is.
  17. Depends the ergonomics of the fitting! I would...

    Depends the ergonomics of the fitting!
    I would rather operate one quick-connect at an ergonomically correct wrist angle to operate 4 vises, than crank on a vise handle 4 times.
  18. See my last post...............

    See my last post...............
  19. This is true. And, I am well aware. I have...

    This is true. And, I am well aware.

    I have given serious consideration to robots guys. Really I have. I have a quote right here on the top of my desk from Yamazen for a FLEX-cell.
    A couple...
  20. one horizontal vs. how many verticals? (Brothers at that)

    Okay, shit is brewing over here. I have some really big decisions to make..............
    I think we all know, I run a production job that is a two piece assembly. One of the parts currently gets...
  21. Need to clamp on entire stock length for first...

    Need to clamp on entire stock length for first OP. A wide (.4375") 2.5" dia. saw goes right through the ends of the stock.
    If the ends are not clamped it chatters like mad (I have tried it, LOL)
    ...
  22. I have actually been using MSC for almost all...

    I have actually been using MSC for almost all tooling lately.
    I managed to find a good sales lady. She got me hard-coded in to some good discounts on cutting tools.
    I still shop everything around....

    4" is too narrow for this app. 5" would be ideal, but don't really exist. 6" fits, so 6" it would be. I also am not a fan of X mounted vises.
    Some of those long Gerardi's with many stations might...

    It is surprisingly hard to find people who have "the feel"!

    Del, I just switched to the whole dove-tail jaw system (Orange).
    They repeat pretty well. I wouldn't count on them to get a sub-.0010"...
  25. RIGHT?! This was exactly my finding. Every time I...

    RIGHT?! This was exactly my finding. Every time I search this stuff, I am like: "where is all the damn info?!"
    Most of the good info does not originate from the USA (go figure). And, I can't follow...
