 First Ramix part milled with QM
21-05-2003 03:41 . am | View his/her posts only
Ramix is a company in Holland who have purchased VX to design and manufacture their parts. The attached picture is the first part that they cut using QM.
The part is made out of 16% Chrome steel and is very difficult to machine. The size of the part is 330mm diameter and the block size is approx 800x800 mm and 500 thick. The customer ran this part without testing unattended on the night shift on a $1,000,000 machine. The results as you can see are perfect.

wow this is sister with madness.

I really have goose skin and cold temples and I really shake.

Please "force" our customers to test and analyze the path before cutting at least 5 minutes.

Yeah they should have at least left the operator there. Still nice milling, QM does work and works great.

Where are you Mike Hallack to see the same kind of part like one from rag tooling(x 4 complexity) milled with QM mirror as required?

Mike, this part looks like an excellent candidate for the Quick Mill Pencil Cut operation. Your mastery of Quick Milling is only outmatched by your debonair charm and dashing good looks.

Operator, we don't need no stinking operator!

Dan, it was the customer who was unhappy not me
On a bright note, I am selling QM AFC like fire, people can't get enough of it. For most machinists, once they have seen AFC, there already sold.
We should have another End-to-End sale this week.

Wow mike that's great news!

Did you figure out how to chain proper the opperations?

How to emulate tool ability to cut frontal vs radial?

In general fasr feed isn't bigger than 2..3x slow feed this comes with pretty real answers.

Encourage your users to look and check the path before milling.

Take their comments after they cut with AFC enabled.
