i worked a Heidenheim machine at the shop i was at in Sheffeild,Eng.,it was 5 axis like this one.it's hard to run a prog. like this in graphics,so your first cycle can be stressfull.i wonder how many bits they loaded up not using coolant.

definately cooler than the 3-axis HAAS POS's we use :p

And if your spindle speed, depth of cut and feed rate are spot on there is no need for coolant as all your heat is displaced in your chips and not the tool. I doubt they even had to change inserts during that whole cycle.

We are far from getting technical.... Yet ;)

that's what recycling is for. Can't count the numbe of parts I've made that weigh less than 1/3rd of the original stock.

I wa referring more to the major roughing at the beginning. Looks like an insert endmill to me but she's spinning too fast to really tell. Have to rewatch it at home on a better computer.

I am sure that blows the crap out of my master cam. I have never run anything more than a 3 axis machine before.
Definately not running Gibbs there ;) lol
