Getting a quote for PostHASTE is fast and easy.
Just call or eMail us... (Use our contact page after reading below...)
...with the following information:
Your e-mail address and phone number
What CAM system are you using?
How many differentmachine program formats do you need to support? (If you have several machines that read the same code, that only counts as 1 'format' [1 template].) For each different machine, please supply us with the following information: - Machine control make and model - Machine tool make and model - Machine type (2, 3, 4 or 5 axis Mill, 2 axis Lathe, Punch Press, XYZC MillTurn, etc) - Note the axes letters and which ones are linear, rotary, quill, and/or redundant, etc.
The above information is all that is needed for your quote covering the PostHASTE software licenses (only). If you plan on doing all the post formatting work yourself, this is all we will need. (If so, then please contact us with the above information and we will quickly provide your quote.)
--- (Optional) Formatting Services: ---
If you are quite busy, you may prefer to have us customize your post templates for you.
IF you would also like a quote for our formatting services, then we will also need this information for each (different) machine:
If it is more than a basic 4 axis mill or MillTurn* [X,Y,Z,C], please include a picture or sketch showing the relationship of ALL axes (including rotaries, spindles, turrets, etc.).
We will need a short sample working NC program for your machine tool(s). The ideal sample program is one to three pages in length and contains...
One tool performing a milling operation (linear and arc movements) with cutter compensation activated (if machine is so equipped) and
two or more tools performing different types of drilling ('point to point') cycles (we prefer to see peck drilling and tapping, if that is convenient).
...For Lathes or MillTurns*:
One tool performing a turning operation (linear and arc movements) with tool nose radius (TNR) compensation activated (if machine is so equipped),
A threading operation (more than one if you want to support multiple types of threading cycles)
two or more tools performing different types of drilling (hole processing) cycles. (Again, if convenient, peck drilling and tapping is preferred.)
For MillTurn* (more):
Also make sure that you include two or more types of milling and drilling cycles (in 'both' orientations - 'face drilling' vs. 'cross [O.D.] drilling' - if machine is so equipped).
* "MillTurn" is what we call a lathe with 'live tooling' capability.
NOTE: If your machine has any unique requirements, please include code demonstrating those functions.
It's "the land of the free"...
of the brave.
and Military -
the world is forever in your debt. Thank you for all you have selflessly done - for all of us.
