At Ramjet Tooling we have realized that our most important assets are our employees and of course our customers. Our Toolmakers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our company and this is why when we were looking at a cad cam system, there was no real question. Our designer / programmer has been using OneCNC for many years. I remember the first version of OneCNC that I started with, it came on a 5 ½ floppy and was loaded on a 486 running Dos Michael says. OneCNC has grown so much from those early days and so have the programmers that use it.
This sort of experience gives us the confidence to allow us to run our Vmc and EDM unmanned as much as we possibly can in conjunction with our web cameras. Below we show a picture from one of our cameras that we monitor from home so that our machines can run long programs unattended.
All this means we make a lot of electrodes for our EDM and do a lot of extremely fine cavity finishing which can take up to 10 hrs at a time to run. It is extremely important to us to be able to run our machines over night to utilize these hours.
