Re: Computer cut mounts

Strange that you are offering Computer Cut mounts. Then you ask if anybody can cut them for you. We do this type of mount. It is not easy. For example if you only want MUM on the left hand side but then the name on the right is say -BARBARA. You end up with two different font sizes and it is just no...

Re: CS 4008xl

NYAF.
The CS79 is a pure manual underpinner and as far as I know does NOT come with a battery.
Unless of course yours was a custom model.

Re: CMC hangs up

have you tried resetting the rails yet ?
Even if you change the wheels/bearings, this same problem will happen again if the bed is warped.

You will need to talk to Chuck Terry the Valiani USA rep. Once WCAF has finished.

Re: CMC hangs up

This fault has come up before. I suspect that you have the wooden table and the reason that the Y arm is locking is that the right hand end of the table is slightly warped. This means that the Y arm tracking rails are not parallel to each other. One quick way of checking is loosen the bolts on the r...

Re: Valiani 'Maximus 2T' World Premiere at Spring Fair

It is interesting that some people seem to want more speed on their CMC.

Are you cutting >300 mounts per day ?

Equally, a large number of CMC users say they slow their machine down.

Just saying !

Re: Need some clarity around CMCs.

Yes, my PC handles the CMC software and the email client plus Skype being open at the same time.

However, having said that. I really do not do any email work or surf the net when designing / cutting mounts.
I can multi task normally but not to that extent. :xcomputer:

I can only speak for Valiani - I am sure other manufacturers will be along shortly. We do not tie you into having another dedicated PC.
