Hi. I'm a new member and have searched the forums several times for answers. I am an Engineering Mgr at a manufacturing company that does machining and fabricating. We have about 70 cnc machines and most of my interests deal with DNC and machine monitoring, although I oversee programming of the machines as well. I've worked at a few different companies and have seen lots of changes over the years. I date back to running paper tapes in to machines, or sending programs as slow as 300 bps. Now today with built in ethernet, wireless DNC, controls that display videos and connect to the internet, there's lots to talk about and lots to learn. I look forward to learning and contributing when I can.
