Is anyone able to, or knows someone who is able to, repair EMCO CNC
machines? I am having an issue with one of my machines (it is the
strangest issue) and I think someone needs to repair something.
However, Emco wants to charge me hundreds of $ just to CALL them,
before they even send someone here.
If you don't find a solution here, you might try at the web forum
"CNCZone.com", they specialize in hobby CNC machines like the EMCO.
But as Tnik said, the more you detail your problem, the better the
chances are that someone might successfully hit on the cause.
Is Emco hobby? I thought they made really expensive multi-axis/spindle
jobbies -- at least that's what I thought I saw at some show.
ENco is the import, right?
And to the OP, Fadal tries to help you out as much as they can over the
phone, including the dealer, who you'd think would be angling for a service
$$ just to talk to you is an outrage.
The plant I work at is German owned. They force us to use German equipment,
for the most part it's over engineered and outrageously priced. I learned
something interesting from a German that was over at our plant installing
equipment, In Germany they are charged for how much it rains. No kidding,
it's calculated by the area of their roof, how much rain they get, and
charged to them on their sewer bill. Explains a lot about why they nickel
and dime you to death, except it's hundred and thousand dollar you to death.
Anyway, we had one row of tire curing presses with German controls and about
5 rows with Allen Bradley controls, the row of German controlled presses
were responsible for about 80% of the cured scrap tires. One little program
glitch or bus fault = scrap. The Germans forced us to use their equipment
and cut our pay because they wanted us to be more productive. But what can
you expect from a people that gets charged for their rain!
It's the same company. Austrian as far as I know. I have two of the
little training style CNC lathes in the stores somewhere. Ought to
ebay them I guess.
Actually very expensive new even for a serious toy. I seem to recall
the later of the two I have which is all kitted out with extras was
close on 4k GBP when new. I used to run a couple little delrin and
cast acrylic jobs on them which it handled well when the quantities were
in the 10 to 100 realm.
I wonder where the OP is, Hit N Run post?
Yea, Emco is a machine tool brand, kinda like Haas from the quick look
at their website.
And I agree, for them to charge you just to talk, that takes some balls.
I know damn well if when we bought a Haas and called support they said
we had to pay to talk to them we would have never bought another one.
One thing I have to say about our HFO here in town, the guys are very
