Foes Racing on TV - Titans of CNC Season Opener
@foamfreak: all day everyday for the last 20 years. I have used Powermill, mastercam, gibbscam, and now I use NX unigraphics. Yesterday i drilled 8000 holes .16mm in diameter in medical carbon. I program hydro-electric runner blades that weigh 500 pounds each before welding, i program internal engine components for 2 of the biggest aircraft engine builders in the world from nickel superalloys. I have programmed for 4 companies in 2 years, 2 of them had Haas machines and they just don't measure up in high precision and difficult materials in 5 axis tool paths. I have posted jobs that ran fine on a Kitamura Mytrunnion 5 to a brand new Haas VF4 and the parts didnt have the required surface finish and didnt respect geometry.

@cheetamike: volumill is great for roughing parts. But you still cant cut rotor blades and Blisks on a 5 axis Haas. The controller cant handle the simultaneous movement with precision.

@rivercitycycles: ROI? Thats great but you cant make a buck if you cant cut the part.

@rivercitycycles: they cant run 5 axis tool paths in Waspalloy or inconel, they arent rigid enough or precise enough. They are great for aluminium and standard steel for job shops, but they just cant handle aviation parts and superalloys.

@taquitos: if you have ever used one you would know just how shitty they are. I work with kitamuras', matsuura's, mitsui seiki's, DMG's and have used Haas's in the past. They are 10 years behind Fanuc and Heidenhain controllers and the machines are very flimsy. Built with cheap ball screws and linear bearings.

@siderealwall2: camera work and aluminium... maybe if they machined some real materials they would use some real feeds and speeds. And that some cute 3+2 postioning they do on those Haas machines, too bad those machines arent capable of high precision, high speed, simultaneous 5 axis tool paths. I have used several Haas machines and they are just a dissapointment every time.
