We had Fadal Engineering do a test cut for us using their new Augusta control, otherwise known as the 104d.
Its pretty fast, has good compatibility with legacy Fadal routines, is supposed to be their new control on all the CNC line by early 2004.
Fadal has finally decided to address the serious deficiencies in their control designed in the 1980’s. That is 15 years ago!
The CNC industry should not tolerate any longer poor performance and high repair and component prices!
Why should we have to pay hundreds of $s for memory, keyboards, even the PC in an MP32 control option is 3 times what a PC would cost… And how about the price they ask for a floppy drive, you’ve gotta be kidding!
Is there any interest out there in discussing the limitations and solutions for this aging CNC control?
I’d be glad to help…
