    Why not wire the full part profile then slice?
    Hold slices in softjaws in zero point system to perform any cnc operations.

    The description is unclear but it sounds like some of the jobs are forgings being machined to finished size?
    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    Its not very clear what you are doing exactly, obviously is one thing machining 200mm thick part or 10mm thick part. But from what i have seen and know- what you are doing is done usually either using a vice and parallel plates below part, either 2 piece vice for long parts, parallels if needed and a combination of screws and clamps.

    Skimming flat on mill is achieved by fly cutter, for your case best would be custom heavy duty fly cutter so you cut at once as much wide as possible. meaning made so that is reinforced with disc.

    It is clear what hoezap is doing. The only way to really speed it up is change the process. He is already wiring. Wire the whole job. The speed increase is seen when the part is sliced...

    So wiring gives a better surface than machining?

    My interpretation, is they're surfacing both sides of the plate, but I'm not sure if the wiring is being done before or after the surfacing...

    No it's not cleat at all.!! . . . . Where does he say he slices the part with this fixture.? . . . Your assuming this.!

    To me it sounds like they are Wire cut to rough size and he's doing the Finish passes.? . . .But this isn't clear.

    My thoughts exactly, and my humour was lost on the expert
