    Default Looking for a Makino CNC mill equivalent to Haas TM1p or better

    Hello Makino fans!

    I am looking for equivalently priced and featured alternatives to the Haas TM1p.
    I like the Haas, except I would prefer better rigidity, a higher speed spindle and 20 piece tool changer.

    I can spend about 25k on a used machine, however I am looking for a well supported low hour professional machine, not a bailing wire DIY kit.

    Price as usual, is the final deciding factor, but I need to achieve a minimum feature set for this price as well.

    I will be producing low volume prototypes and small batches. Working in plastic, aluminum, stainless, steel and a minimum work envelope of 12x12x12.

    Here are my minimum specs/features so far:

    Work Envelope: 12x12x12 or larger
    HP: 7.5 hp to 15 hp
    Rapids: +400 ipm
    Spindle: +6000 rpm
    ATC: 20 pc
    Chip removal: Yes
    Taper: Standard industrial taper, not R8
    Electronic Probing: Yes
    Upgradeable to 4th and 5th axis: Yes

    So how about it, is there such a machine out there?
    Thank you for your time!
    Steve

    Makino and Haas are complete opposites. Haas is designed for low cost, Makino for HIGH quality.
