  • brown & sharpe ONE

    Does anyone have a brown & sharpe ONE machine? If so how do you like it? We just purchased one and I'm hoping it was a good move.

      We have 3 of them on our shop floor. Rarely ever have any problems. Most problems are due to grease on the scales. Our shop has poor air quality. The y-axis velco sometimes comes unstuck and that allows for some contamination there. In the summer time, the computer cabinet becomes very hot - you may look into adding some fans to draw air in and suck hot air out. We fried one hard drive last summer from the heat. Other than that the machine is very durable and dependable. If you got the computer station and printer stand with it, it's a pain to change out keyboards, mouse or printer because of the way the wires are routed. Any specific questions?

          We don't use the ONE, but I have heard nothing but positive feedback from people using them.

            We have 2 (7-10-7) for about a year and a half maybe 2 years now.

            I think the Z axis ram is flimsy and whips a lot durring manual measurements. I can bang a part out manually on one of our MicroExcell PFX's or our Excell 7-10-7 and be just as accurate as DCC. Not so with the One. The Z counter balance looks cheap I expect it to go first but I can't say I've had a problem with it yet. Shrouds are velcro not fastened, expect to that to need replacing. Drive system is still rack and pinion. Have not had problems with it but I find the ball and lead screw on Sheffield a little more impressive.

            I can't complain over all. The problems I point out are problems that I anticipate not problems I've had per se. Nice not running on air, you can move it with a pallet jack and be up and running botta bing. And we have, several times. Cover bellows issues like djayne pointed out but it does not sound like it is as severe as his issue.

            We bought it simply because of price. Over all it looks like a flimsy cheap piece of crap. I can't say it is though so no real complaints. Both of ours are on the shop floor and run 24/7. Unlike djayne we did not buy their computer cabinets, we procured our own.

                They are cute little machines. I've ran one before in training but here @ work I'm running an Xcel 15-20-10 (for the past 11 years now) to accomadate the large plastic housings I measure and some dies/tooling.

                      We have twelve ONE machines. Ten 7-7-5s and two 7-20-7s. Our shop coudn't be happier with them. They take a lot of abuse (as far as CMMs go) and still maintain their precision and accuracy.

                      I have only had to put in one service call in three years for the ONE machines. Other that that, general maintenance is all that has been required. Haven't had a single one fail calibration after installation, either.

                        The shop I work in has two of the Ones and I like it. The only problem we have had was that both of the machines are on the Shop Floor and they do get pretty dirty. Once in a while I do have to clean the scales off. They are very user friendly.

                          The company I used to work for had ONE 7.10.7 and it was a lemon. So bad that we got an upgrade to a Global 7.10.7 for the shipping cost only.

                            The CNC shop I work at has been running a ONE for about 10 years now. Other than the bellows velcro coming off (which can be fixed with new velcro strips) and the scales getting dirty once in a while (pre-packaged wipes for glasses clean these nicely) we've had no trouble with it. I've noticed that the computer cabinet gets quite warm in the summer, but since it rarely gets above 25ÂșC here, it hasn't been a problem. The machine has been moved around the shop a couple of times as we've expanded and after the calibration guy sets it up, it runs as well as it always has.

                            This is the only machine I've ever worked with, so I can't compare it to others. It's excellent for the small aluminum parts we manufacture.

                                Try not to take your CMM's air from the lowest point in the line. Take the air above the lowest point preferably in a straight run down towards the floor....
