Could use some advice in choosing a vertical machining center. The travel should be approximately 30 x 16 x 20 We will use this machine to cut 17-4PH , 304SS , 410SS , 420SS.
The operations will involve some heavy milling as well as close tolerance work.
I'm looking for a machine that will last fairly trouble free to the 10-15 yr range.
Any thoughts as far as box vs linear ways , integral vs geared spindles and the like would be appreciated.
