    There are so many different options with NX that I'd double check that it is the same package. Some of the Mach packages have things that a typical job shop wouldn't use. Team center...etc.

    Yep, a 2016 and a 2018 is what I've seen. I think they bumped the magazine up to 48 tools this year, those were still 32.

    Yeah not sure why they are loose on the market, I wouldn't expect them...

    haha...nope. Just had local sales and region manager in the shop, I asked that very question. I've seen a couple on the used market pretty damn reasonable though.

    I can't imagine having an hsk holder "fuse" while at speed would protect the spindle in any meaningful way. High speed spindles are usually ceramic bearings where the distance from good to junk is...

    cat40 dual contact. 15K is an arbitrary number but after 15 the steps usually get bigger, and hogging isn't really the purpose of the spindle.

    16 or 18K I'd still go cat40 dual contact, by the...

    Under 15K Dual Contact CAt40 > HSK63 > taper only Cat40

    Over 15K HSK63 > DC CAt40 > Taper CAt40

    It's not any harder than that. RPM dictates interface.

    Wait...is Asiatic offensive now? I thought that described a geographical region on the planet...not a person or persons?

    Have we reached a point where I no longer care? Yes, yes we have.

    OSP300 is one of the faster controls out there...it's not a volume of code problem, the control is slowing things down on purpose. I suspect tolerance is too tight in the high cut settings.

    You said Titanium...which means the answer is not Haas. It's Okuma, or a box way kitamura. The standard m560 will eat Titanium all day...I've done it and it won't even notice cutting aluminum.
