Is that accurate?

I know. I saw that and thought "holy shit!".

First CNC I ever manned (lowly parts swapper) was an A55 (1992/3). And I don't remember it being that fast.
Fun fact, that machine is still to this day sitting in the exact same spot, running the exact same part.
Modern Industries, Erie PA, Bendix big-truck twin-cylinder compressor crank-case.
At least my buddy that still works there (management now) says it is. You can still see it in website pics.

After making that post, and pondering it for a day or two, I can't even fathom how many of those crank-cases that thing has processed.
I don't remember what quota per/shift was? But, it was a decent pile. Maybe 40~50?
It is pretty awesome to think the same machine has been making the same part for 28+ years!
I would love to see the service records!
Do we have any members that work @ Modern that can back up the info I get from my buddy?

We have two A55e's next to a new A51, and it's pretty clear to see how the A51 was essentially an exercise in reducing the cost while giving up as little performance as possible. The SAME part / program / tools runs faster on the A55 than the A51 :). (Not accounting for controller advancements that allow things like the magazine door to be programmed to open *just* enough for the length of the tool being changed, or SGI magic, etc.)
