Hi Guys, anybody with feedback on either of the machines or on the Genos line in general. I know the Lathe is out of Tatung production, and was wondering what the general consensus is on these machines.
The Lathe seems to be a bit on the weaker side with 15KW spindle, while competitions offerings are around 22KW.
I am also looking at the Doosan Puma 280LM and DNM mill series which are a lot cheaper by comparison. I know what the response for a Doosan/Okuma comparison would look like, but the Genos line being an entry market product things may not be as clear?
I am also looking at the DMG ecoline CX510 and 1035v and initially prices on the DMGecoline website looked promising, but I have been quoted prices for the baseline that are 80,000 USD above the advertised pricing without any options... I have read very few comments about the DMG ecoline, with one person saying they are built more cheaply than even a Haas...
I like the idea of getting both mill and lathe from the same supplier for training and service reasons...In general I would like the OSP-2000 control best, followed by the new siemens, followed by fanuc...
In this context how good is the new Okuma control by comparison, is it worth the extra dough?
Also looking for some feedback on the up and downside of the driven tool turrets. From what I gather the Mori Seiki turrets are supposedly the most rigid ones, followed by the BMT then VDI. Any feedback on either type appreciated as well.
Last Question: What is your real life experience in regards to the comparison of Box way, vs ball-type, vs roller type linear bearings.
It makes sense to me that from a maintenance perspective linear bearings are easier to replace, where box ways are on top for heavy duty cutting conditions and reduce vibrations. But how much of an advantage are the roller type bearings over the ball type, wondering how much is marketing hype and how much of it is a real life advantage.....
Thanks guys for reading through all this, any input appreciated.
