    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Forgot to include the hardness : HB = 490 After heat treatment, solely for the boring operation of the leaf spring eyes.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Yes, depending on future projects, but finding the sweet spot of not cutting it too short or going overboard takes some time, but hopefully it'll be obtainable with experience. Thank you for your insight.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    ye Mazak seems to have its reputation, however, I've yet to confirm whether or not we have local customer support, we have one for the Haas and CNS (JAZZ J18/2). Thank you for your insight.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Apologies for the lack of details as I've felt that the post was plenty long already, as for the material it's : 51CrV4, and we drill + trimm it before heat treatment, as for boring leaf spring eyes they are annealed, so increased hardness and rigidity. As for the RPM, we didn't go above 4.2k...

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    I agree, however, 4-axis and 5-axis machinery would be too much for our use, we machine simple parts, so no need for the extra axes, plus, I may be wrong on this one but don't they require a load more maintenance due to all the extra moving parts ? As for why we need a new machine, the Haas...

    We have Haas customer support along with CNS (JAZZ J18/2). I'd need to verify the Mazak. Thank you for the insight.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    We have Haas support + CNS (JAZZ J18/2), as for the Mazak I'd need to verify, cause usually when there's no local service support, we call-in from abroad which is more costly, thank you for the advice.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Apologies for any confusion, I'll clarify : The material is : 51CrV4 used in Leaf Springs also known as spring steel. And the parts currently machined on the Haas TM-2P are 1260x450, however, the parts we want to go for are of the dimensions I've mentioned (1800x500x100) but the Haas won't fit...

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Never thought of it that way, perhaps due to what "can't it do" sometimes being overlooke as "standard" exactly like you mentioned, thank you for your insight, will add that into my list of questions, that also seems to work in everyday life scenarios as well with any item you need to buy.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Will consult the machine and let you know, I believe if the machine is good it's worth to learn how it works differently, no time spent learning is wasted ! Thank you for the recommendations. Also my bad, I didn't include the operations, I'll update it.

    Buying the right CNC Machine and avoiding overspending

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and to the machining world in general, with surface-level knowledge but am looking to learn and improve along the journey. In the past few weeks I've been comparing several VMCs and have narrowed down my search to four, I've also confirmed that the specs should fit our...
