I don't know what they made but it was fun watching it being made.

Neat video. I do not think they made anything. Just showing a potential customer what they are capable of creating.

Interesting that no cutting/cooling fluid was used. Dave

When I was in machine shop in High School that would have taken at least 5 different setups and no less that 3 machines and most likely days not minutes to complete

Fastening. Much quicker than using a file and a micrometer but probably more expensive and not as much exercise.

Can't wait to see what this machine looks like 5 years from now, when this machine starts making the next variation of this machine. Maybe even a drone to watch over the machine it self.

I purchased a similar machine for our machine shop several years ago and I can say that multi-tasking works. We haven't even scratched the surface of what this thing can do.

As for coolant it's not really needed any more if you have the right tooling.

It takes a talented individual to program, setup and run this type of equipment. That was one factor we had to consider on our purchase. We have only three machinist with the skill level to run it.

The downside of this technology is any small accident can lead to huge repair costs, don't ask how I know.

I think this is where machines are drastically going to grow over the next decade. Additive machining processes allow for complex geometry otherwise obtained by lengthy machine processes.
