    Because it wasn't a competent test/demonstration of anything. He:

    1- Used the wrong machine (I am sure Ti-TAN has access to a 50 taper he could film on).

    AND

    2- Used it the wrong way...

    Or you could:

    1- Use a way better holder with less gauge length.
    2- Use the modern HSM techniques that machine was designed for.
    3- Not run abusive speeds/feeds.

    The demo is going to be very dependent on your application. I would tell them your setup with parametric derived CAD data, and how you want to simplify programming of those parts in NX. They will...

    As someone pointed out earlier though, that holder looks janky. Some Kennametal hydraulic dingus? IDK what it is, but it seems stupid to have a long stickout neck, than a big holder section, then the...

    I switched from HSM Works/Fusion to NX in April. Some notes:

    NX CAD is amazing. I switched because we had a big project that needed some very tricky CAM work (funky 4th axis simultaneous) so the...

    Everyone keeps citing rolling shutter. I won't go into a technical discussion of camera stuff, but just look at the floor of that cut - that shit is full up Machu Picchu. Obviously the end mill was...

    I think he is on Fusion/Inventor HSM. Look, there are guys who are doing some neat 5 axis stuff with these packages, but you need to be *really* dedicated to the software, tweaking your own post, and...

    He is apparently a really very nice, very normal guy in real life, but the Reality TV bug bit him hard, so if you point a camera at him, it's all BOOM and orangutan orgasm moans. I guess it works for...

    WTF is this motion under heavy load?

    YouTube

    Titan (boom, and all that) posted this video with some Kennametal end mill doing full slotting in 1018. Someone asked if this was adaptive toolpath, to which he said it isn't... just the...

    I forgot about this thread, but anyone who notes how correct I am gets my business!
    Look for that 3 line item order of aluminum end mills. Looking forward to giving them a run!

    If the machine is a Speedio, the High Accuracy settings are probably way more important than the marginal differences between high quality holders. Have Yamazen install firmware V10, use the new...

    No Go. Jergens have been tested and found wanting. You already pointed out why (aluminum base).



    You can run the shit out of a Schunk. The things will survive nuclear winter. They just go and...

    IDK, the dude has basically had to return/replace 2 CNC mills in 12 months. Something is a bit fishy about that from his end.

    Haas seems to have done right by him (as much as they can given the...

    Second this. Just go buy the transformers now. Literally every Speedio running on a PhasePerfect/Rotary winds up needing them, and you don't want to be in a scramble during commissioning to get a set...

    I despised the Space Mouse for *years*. Until I became an NX user. It took about a week of forcing myself to use it and breaking previous habits. Now? I literally won't use CAD without it. Even...

    I think Rob Lockwood said it best a while ago; handing someone a seat of NX without any guidance is like putting some raondo in the seat of an F22 Raptor.

    The CAD side is easy enough to pick up if...

    I saw that on a wire forming machine and immediately wanted it on my mill. We do lots of multi-axis work with *very* tight clearances between tools and work holding, reaching deep into the setup to...

    Frank has sold the higher strength (I think from J&M) pull studs for a while, but he was working on something further improved beyond that, and made in-house. Due date in 2020 or so, I know they are...

    Ahh! The hissing sound you hear is machine air blast, pointed at the probe tip, cleaning off both the ruby and the inspection area.

    The Renishaw can handle it just fine. The coolant is from the high pressure face/taper wash down on a tool change. If you are *production* probing on a turret machine with Big+, it is probably a good...

    I believe Frank @ Maritool is working on such a thing.

    I've been very happy to do production probing using the factory macros, but stripping them down and calling them with very particular options to speed stuff up.

    For example, on one quick...

    Nope. 16k is ceramic as well.

    The spindle itself is actually quite robust. I've seen them bumped a bit in XY, and massively buggered in Z. The real Achilles heel is the pull stud. If the crash...

    IDK, Haas wants about the same amount for their 12/15k spindle:

    With 1.5" of Z travel? I hadn't seen that, but that tells me it won't really do any job for anyone!

    It strikes me as odd that Haas hasn't entered the market here yet in a real way. They could put...
