So satisfying :D

#2 I do not think it is any particular part but more of a show piece as it has "Siemens nx cam" machined into it , which is the software suite used for the machining process, So my guess is that its a demo.

#2 A Showpiece item from the producers.

Wonder how long we have to wait for the next unbeleavable video with an higher tech machining unit. :D

Why no coolant?

#9 well if they'd used coolant we wouldn't be able to see the whole process clearly. Also it's an aluminium at relatively low speeds and low feeds you can do the operation without any cutting fluids.

Interestingly, has no coolant

#10 you sure it's AL ? and not cooled by Air ?

#10 it can´t be Aluminum because of the colored hot chips. Al wouldnt get blue.
Looks like a hot forged steel to me, something like a S355J2G3 or 16MnCr5...
Also it´s most likely they use cold compressed air with a hint of cutting oil for cooling and chip removal.

It looks like mild steel from the orange, rusty colour on the outside. Could be 1018. I worked as a saw operator and worked with similar steel which could be up to 12 inches in diameter and 20 feet long. 1018 steel is very soft and will dent easily. I always used cutting fluid when I worked but I was using saw blades and not a cnc machine. However when I did use the cnc machines for aluminum cutting fluid was used. But that doesn't mean every machine needs it.

Just think, they had men called machinist doing the same thing who had skills to product the parts. Now we have lackys doing software. That's progress until the big sun spot. Then we have men called machinist doing the same thing.............

The machine is actually playing that music. It comes as a standard option. For only an additional $40,000 it comes with a 'Sinatra' upgrade...

#9 No coolant because their using carbide insert cutting bits which pull a lot of the heat from cutting away in the chips making coolant not as important. However, It's also becasue they want to show the cutting process, under normal manufacturing conditions coolant would be used to increase the life of the cutting bits.

#19 Seems it was made vor the vid. Shazam didnt found results, the original vid didnt gave any info and in the comments they also asked about the track name..nobody got an answer.

Usually if a cnc machine requires lubricant there are supply tubes directed at all points
where cutting is going on. I see no sign of them or ducted cold air (yea right) tubes
anywhere on the machine. Carbide cutters reduce the heat and friction usually associated with
machining metals so lubrication is not always needed.

Aluminimum doesn't rust like that so I am guessing steel.
