Our Mori AL-22S w/ Fanuc 0T-C has a software problem that will require new EPROM chips. Our local Mori distributor wants $1200.00 per chip for the 2 EPROMs (That's $2400.00 total !!!!) that have the PMC program on them.
If someone has an AL-22S with the same software, I'd be very willing to purchase an EPROM reader, come to your facility, and make you back-up chips if I'd could copy yours.
I understand that no machine tool company is a non-profit organization, but I'm sure this represents a serious gouging akin to a scene from the movie "Deliverance" on the part of Mori Seiki and our distributor. (And my name ain't Ned Beatty !!)
