cut exceeded the hp of the machine. My 15 hp fadal could do that cut.
Proly a 5 hp machine could.
Ahm no 'spert, but vmc's have a way of detecting a crash condition, and it
looks like that's what was happening here. If he came in at, say, 60 ipm,
and then *ramped up to 120 ipm*, I'll bet good bucks that the Haas would not
have alarmed out.
If this is the case, one could arger that the Haas was a *safer* machine,
and that you just have to work around this a bit, from a production pov, but
once worked around, will still have better "crash protection".
I don't think anyone, not even Haas, would debate that the makino is a
"better" machine. It all boils down what you actually require, and
Also, I don't think ramping up is such a bad idea, anyway, altho mebbe
unnecessary once a program has been proved out, for full production.
