Any one interested in converting a bunch of Contact Systems 3AV programs to Philips Topaz format?

I believe Megellen Service would do this for you. I see another company has decided to replace Contact before they go under. I know some people do not believe Contact will go under but believe me when I tell you they only have months left. Apex will be thier final effort. If no one bits at the c5, Which is only a prototype being thrown together for the show, With no actual run time or testing. Contact will be a company of the past

To be fair, we are not replacing them. I also have a 3Z. The 3AV is too slow for us. The 3Z is a good machine and we are keeping it. Its in line with a Panasonic MMCG3 chipshooter. We now have a Topaz also inline with a Panasonic MMCG3 chipshooter and need some help getting started with it. I dont know about the future of Contact. I know they put a lot of money in the new machines and with their sales volume I dont know why. I doubt they can compete but the owner also had a lot of money and wanted to keep the company going. Since they are American I wish them the best. If they would have spent thier money fixing the shortfalls of the 3Z they would probably been way better off.

Ron, No one asked you about future of Contact Systems. It sounds like you are feeding on the B.S. magellan has been telling everyone. Why don't you get your information from reliable sources (such as Contact Sytems) rather than those with obvious alterior motives (you don't need to be a brain surgeon to figure this out). The sanctity of the forum is ruined by your bogus comments and forces guys like me to spend time responding for fear that people might start to believe your erroneous posts. I make a motion that the moderator of this forum please intervene.

Greg Pompea Vice President of Engineering Contact Systems p.s. See you at APEX Ron
