Does anyone have thoughts about Busellato vs. SCMI nested machines. Parts and service issues along with tech support?
Biesse. Machines just run and run
Comparing Busellato and SCMI only? I have had better reliability with SCMI by a large margin for both parts and tech support. The one I have now, a Northwood beats both hands down and it is not even close. Based solely on my experience. I have used all of them extensively.
If your used to Northwood/Fanuc and Gcode youll hate them. I ran a rover 6.5 5 axis machine. Junk. No techs in the area so always have to fly in. Lots of money. Tech was there every 3 months for one thing or another. Im back on Northwoods again at new job thank GOD. My buddy that is still there says nothing has changed.
Same EXACT machine. Parts will be the same on both machines and a tech that can work on one can easily work on the other.
Looks like I will be looking @ a Northwood on the next machine. Any advice on edge banders ? We have good luck with our machines, but always looking for better.
I believe Busellato is owned by SCM, It is my understanding that some of the controllers are cheaper quality in the Busellato.
A good friend just bought a Biesse skill with the full auto load unload set up. We were talking machines and one that he looked at had an interesting quirk. The machine had to return the tool from the router to the holder before it could start drilling operations. About 15 seconds every time and double the cycles on the machine
Scott, where do you get your information?
Most companies that make the larger machines have tried to make cost competitive machines to compete with the $60K and less machines. Maybe those entry level machines are what you are talking about.
Busellato makes a wide range of machines.
The shop I work at is considering one of these machines. Any thoughts about one vs the other?
I really don't think it matters what controller you have, or what cnc you have. What matters is when you crash it, or when it decides it is going to take the day off, how long will it be for you to get it going again?
We are located in central WI. We are considering easy jet or pratix. Does anyone have one of these machines in that area? How is your tech service? How is your machine?
Did you ever make the purchase? I'd like to know how this went for you.
I have Busellato easy jet 5.12 for over 2 months and itís been a rollercoaster since day 1. On the second day of installation unpleasant accident happened, I was attacked by Scm/Busellato tech, but I didnít press charges. Easy-jet came with one part broken- they call it muffler- and 2 months after I received 4 or more packages with spare parts but there is no-one good! Today I called about problem with post processor and tech Benjamin from SCM/BUSELLATO hang up on me accusing me of using illegal copy of Alphacam. I was train in Europe where I bought alphacam. They are telling me that they will not help me because they donít have alphacam license in their data base in here.
