Yea I upload the program from a wireless server. And the aluminum chips go into a hopper then when its full we take them to a pucker which compacts the chips together about the size of a hockey puck then we sell them for scrap

Yea once we sell them to scrap then they melt the pucks down. The manual programs I write are actually at the machine. Just small things like turning bushings, cutting dovetails, or taking stock to size. To actually make a plate that has any kind of detail like pockets, chamfers. Etc you have to run that through a program. Then run Veracut on the computer which shows all the passes the machine is gonna make to make sure everything runs good and you don't crash the machine
