Heh kinda old. You should watch a CNC Wheel machine! Turns a solid blank into a rin in about 5 minutes. I having done this kinda work for years. Used to make rims for the solar car races.

I know it's old..but I've never seen a video if it like this. It's so amazing to me!! That's awesome that you get to work with this type of stuff. Probably a pretty fun job!

Wasn't all that impressed until the complicated milling portions at the 3 min mark.

As for cutting a wheel from a blank in 5 mins ... maybe just a solid train wheel for wheel set.

Something with a bit more complication usually takes about an hour or even 2.

Bullshit!!! Yea I guess since I have been in the machining business for about 15 years I wouldn't know. Seen it done in person.

5 axis is where it's at.

Check out the W-12 in the beginning of this clip

Ummm, I ran a prod dev department and industrial design department for half a decade chief.

We had quick tooling machines, rapid prototyping machines, CNC lathes, and CAD/CAM along with the full suite of Solidworks.

I've yet to see any finished product beyond the most basic and smallest design get cut out of a solid blank/billet in 5 mins - let alone something the size of a wheel.

Not even the rapid prototyping machine would be able to spit it out in 5 mins.

OHHH a whole 5 years? How long ago was this? I did that 10 years ago. What was the max RPM of the machines used? So I guess what I saw was a trick huh? Shit on an HAAS with 7500 max rpm I made rims in 22 min from blanks!

Water jet cutters are great. But very rough edges unless you go real slow. Same for lasers. Lasers work great with sheet metal and water jet works for milling.

I dunno, I just have to know the maximum production output on a given day, how much we could ramp up to if I ran it 3 shifts, and make sure the P&L is tight. I hired machinist / mechanical engineers to know the super technical stuff and tell me the parameters.

I do know the machines were an Xcelsior or Xceeder (It's been a minute) a Mazak and they costed more than a house.

Now in so much as milling a blank - maybe if you're just talking about the face of the wheel on say a 5-axis machine, single head, ok I'll give you that. So long as the design is not overly intricate - I can see it cutting it out in 5 mins.

But milling out an entire finished 22 in rim in 5 mins?
