Add a machine profile for an MT 1036 Bed Mill?
I am looking as a hobbist / professional for information on CNC software I am only senior machinist because i am the only one in the company, and i own the company Lol. We are looking at moving up to a cnc machine made by Detroit machine tools. It is the MT 1036 bed mill. I am wondering if you have this machine listed in your program or if you can add it after the fact? This information will help me to make a decision as to what software and hardware we will buy. I am really only a hobbyist with a manual lathe. In fact it is a 1947 South Bend 9A that i have completely restored. It came to me in parts and completely non working, with broken and missing parts. Now it runs every day making parts that we use in our frame building business. Some day i will want a bigger and better lathe but for now this one will do, but we really do need a cnc machine that will make certain parts we now need a lot of. The Detroit machine tools bed mill will do what we need and more for what we consider a good price . BUT!!! I want to make sure i am not going to buy something no program supports. It uses seimens controls so that seems good . This is the linkto the machine website. https://detroitmachine.tools/MT-1032 the actual machine is MT-1036 which is the upgraded version of the 32 with more horsepower and such. thank you for your time. Also if you have an opinion on this machine itself i would be interested. Thanks again.
