    OK, I am getting closer to finding my next mill.

    - 20k rpm min.....I really want 40k

    - 5-axis continuous fast controller

    - 450 x 450 x 450mm workspace without collision

    5 x 5 fixture of 98mm disks. Or actually horseshoe shape. (Dentures or full arch stuff)

    This is as close as I can find for new machine to meet my specs and not be too expensive.

    The Japanese will change Spindle to 46,000rpm

    Weight is over 12,000lbs

    Maybe close to 15k?

    Cost is over $300,000usd

    HAAS comes close with their UMC 750 , but Spindle is too slow and too strong.

    Not correct machine.

    Same with many others.

    Maybe the MX-850 with custom spindle?

    nice mills i think Medentika runs them too but denture milling on this is waisted time and money to expense cost per hour is min 60 Dollar either 5 cheap mills for 35 bucks with 1 kw sycotec spindel or printed

    I need all 25 on same fixture to pack denture base and cure together.
    Then back into machine.

    Of course I realize there are cheaper mills but work space is too small.

    the general problem with each big mill is time it makes no sense to mill for example zircon in a 300 bucks mill for 300 bucks you get 7-8 mills with loader and their output is higher milling pmma in the sample you save time because of no versus less tool change but therfore you always have to load the whole mill and thats unrealistic with individual products 24/7 . or you make it via loader but time advantage is more less than.

    I want 10,000mm/min feed cutting plastics.
    I never see a small machine go more than 2000mm/min

    No reason to go slow with coolant and high speed spindle.
