Deckle's are beautiful machines and extremely accurate, they are kind of a pain to run, the german osha laws are actually stricter than ours here, you have to press one button with your left hand, press one button with you big right toe, press one button with your nose, dial in handle mode with your left hand and hop on your left foot just to open the door. and then the control is siemens which only germans can make sence out of, the instruction manual it is translated from german to chineese to french and then to english just to make to easy to understand.

That is just UNREAL, The only thing is that video is mean to impress anyone looking for a machine like that if they never had a ton of experiance with them. and then makes you guys who design things look easy. Shame on us for thinking that.

What machines do you guys use Tom? I have seen machine similar to those but larger in beach park Il. Those guys used to be the manufacturer of the Hummer chrome parts.

Don't see any reason why it couldn't cut that.

we are production oriented shop so we run mainly live 4 axis horizontals with pallet changers with fith axis capability via cnc rotary indexer, they allow us to get parts done in two operations which is the same that a 5 axis parts usually require. One of the main advantage a 5 axis offers is with the right software they would run a bullnose type cutter so when machining a 3 dimentional part the software programs the tool to use areas of the tool to make the most tangent cutter contact to drastically reduce cycle times and of course you have full access to 5 sides of the part which is very convienient. where as in 4 axis programming you would normaly use a ball mill, which only has a tiny contact point to the part requireing many more passes for a fine finish. making cycle times much longer. we would love to have a live 5th axis in our shop but without the right work at $500k ish each its pricey and that machine is not oriented for production, it is a mainly used for mold bases and accurate and complicated short run components.

for the size parts we run i would like one of these

heres a demo, not as nearly cool as the helmet program

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0eJnh0BT9k

its a lathe and 5 axis mill, you can complete almost any part in one operation unmanned.

See I wouldn't have thought it would be a manual programming deal. I figured they Placed in some type of 3d laser scanner type thing and maybe let a program like Master Cam Write the program. Either way still would have a good bit of time in Set-up. and I've never Generated a Master-Cam program that i didnt have to modify the hell out of. I guess after all that It could very well have taken 2weeks to program and setup.

that is not mastercam software, thats high end, tebis like.

3d code is actually much easier to post unedited programs, than a multi tool standard program.
