General Mach Discussion / Deckel Mach Retrofit
« on: August 13, 2007, 07:17:08 PM »
Hi Everyone,
My name is Sean and I am the moderator of the Deckel forum over at Practical Machinist.

After many years of talking about it, it looks like the "Deckelites" may finally be willing to attempt a PC conversion of a Deckel CNC milling machine as a group.

While I am a pre-Mach user/owner of Art's software, it has been years since I have been in this forum as at the time, Art's software was quite "young".  I did manage a Bridgeport Boss retrofit using the beta of Mach 1, but the Deckel was out of reach at that time.

Today, as Mach has evolved, and more interest in converting a Deckel NC has been introduced, we are now very interested in moving on with a retrofit.

The Deckel NC is a very special machine, of the highest quality, and a very friendly conversational called a "Dialog", which can still hold it's own 20 years later.  This control excels at shop floor programming and the logical subsitution of buttons/modes for what would otherwise be a "manual" milling operation using handwheels.

In any case, if you could offer and help, or would just like to follow along, that thread can be found here:

We'll probably be directing most tech' questions to this topic here on the Mach forum, but will have more machine specific issues at the Deckel forum.

It's good to be here again, and thanks for having a look!

Sean
