Our shop is currently looking into purchasing a new 10" cnc lathe with live tooling. I have researched hurco as we have 4 of their mills in house. I am trying to find information on the Haas conversational programming side. We do all of our programming at the machine and ease of programming live tooling is very important. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
I will add just a little and say DON'T use Haas programming for a live tool lathe. The Haas VQC/QC is nice on a tool room lathe and that is about it.
Get yourself some real software. Or a Mazak.
