Q: How long does it take to learn?
A: We will stay on site until your main operator is comfortable downloading and running a program, it usually takes one day of training.
Q: Will I be able to run my old programs?
A: Programs written for 3 and 4 axis machines are relatively easy to transfer to the Fagor. If your shop runs 5 axis programs, there will be some manipulation required. In some cases it may be easier to start with the computer model and post it with a Fagor specific postprocessor. Fagor offers a conversion program to update low level NC code from older Fagor controllers to 8055 language.

A: We have programming capabilities and resources to customize a ‘postprocessor’ for your machine. The cost of programming varies and can range from $500 to $2000.
