    Robot Multiaxis

    One thing experienced people aren't aware of is the functioning behind having three sections in the tool plane GUI. you can have different coordinate systems between 'tool plane' and 'comp'. and it will effect the direction that the toolpaths run along the surfaces. Or said another way ; the orientation that the calculations are looking at the part. I'm not putting lots of time into this explanation, and others could describe it better. Just pointing out it exists.

    Matsuura or Mitsui for Aerospace CNC

    I stand corrected. Any perceived negativity by me towards Matsuura is purely hyperbole Ford vs Chevy. Apparently i don't even know what i'm talking about the grease spindle specification either (where'd i get that from?). Can't edit or correct posts anymore so i'll just STFU, after saying the support you get with your machine purchase might just be more importance than spec warfare by manufacturers. If it can be done by a machine tool, a cncappsguy/Matsuura combo would be extremely tough to beat.

    Matsuura or Mitsui for Aerospace CNC

    The heat issue is what I was referring to as to being well internet-documented. Just wanted to make you aware the Matsuuras are grease pack lubricated, AFAIK. Correct me if I'm wrong. Grease pack spindle are generally rated lowest at 8000 hrs and shouldn't run more than 2 hrs of non-stop use. If you think toyoda is better you might be disappointed.
