Our company is considering several new machines and one brand that EDM Network is selling is kind of an upscale Chmer, by a Chmer division called AMS Tech. Has anyone had any experience with this company? I'm trying to figure out if the control is a Fanuc compatible as the Chmer ones supposedly are.
Also, another consideration is the Charmilles Cut 30 machine, apparently made in China.
My main concerns are:
1: Overall quality
2: Tech support
3: part availability
4: Posting my programs using Esprit.
DP Technology doesn't know what post it would use, but they may have to quote us on a custom one.
I know what to expect from Charmilles, good and bad, but it's the fear of the unknown that gets me.
Thanks in advance.
We went ahead and bought the machine and just had it installed. So far, so good. They incorporate some features that I really like, such as a Z lock to prevent the head from being lowered too far (and crashing) and a great threading system. More later.
