50 taper=150% more material removal than the 40 taper. The tolerances that can be held with a 50 are amazing considering the material removal rate. But theyre pricey as anything youll find!looks like the engine block i just got from Chuck Nuytten gutted like a fish lol.
Mori seiki make a killer 7 axis machine for about 400 g's but its only a 40 taper.
If you look closely the smaller tool is tapered which helps alot when using the extended holders.I wonder long of a cycle that was with all the 3-d cutting it was doing. I also wondering how many they crashed it before they figured out. Them were some long tools not to be chattering.
Im good with 3 & 4 axis and simple 5 axis positional programming also. But programming a true 5 axis is rough. Some of the best programmers I know have alot of trouble and are VERY slow getting it done and it takes tons of revisions also.Wow!!! I can program basic stuff on a standard 3 axis Haas, but nothing even close to that..
I sure miss running and programming stuff.
