Prima Optimo - anyone using?

Prima Optimo - anyone using?

Anyone have one of the old Prima Optimos, especially one of the (US) Amada systems? (CRG 306, Coherent EFA 51 or Arrow)
This is mostly curiosity - I worked on that project, wondering how many are running nowadays.

RE: Prima Optimo - anyone using?

OK - anyone seen one of them in the last 15 years or so?
Last I heard, there were
two machines at BF Goodrich (was Rohr Industries) in Chula Vista
two machines at Milfab (was Milford Fabricating) up near Detroit
one in Arkansas somewhere (was at P&W East Hartford, moved in 90's)
one in Indiana, was in Grand Rapids
one that was in Orange, Ca

just curious
I imagine many of the survivors have been re-powered, and maybe gotten new controls as well.
