This DMU 60P iTNC 530 machine has failed to operate properly since installation.
Does anyone know of other people or 'P' machines with cycle 19 A and C axis compound angle calculation problems. The manufacturer has not been able to fix it and has said i'm a pain in the arse. It is still covered by their warranty!
Secondly i have tried to find the address for Dr.Rudiger Kapitza, the chairman of DMG. If you know his address could you please inform me. DMG themselves will not return mt emails for this.
My machines spindle stops after 15 minutes constant machining, the machine loses position and has to be shut down, it continually locks up, it cannot machine a 5 axis program without slowing the feed rate down to ridiculas feeds or it goes into error mode and locks up.
Normally i thought these machines were very good, but my experience has forced me to cut staff and drop a product line as the blowout time of 13 months and my huge investment of $800,000.00 to get everything ready for machining without any income has brought me one big financial problem.
