SolidCAM Mill-Turn for multiple turret and multiple spindle CNC machines

  • The fastest growing and most demanding class of CNC machines on the market today are multi-task machines, that combine several capabilities into one machine. Multiple spindles, multiple turrets, material being machined in multiple stages, transferring from spindle to spindle without handling, stock inserted at one end, finished parts coming out the other.
  • 4/5-Axis Simultaneous Mill Turn machines have many uses and allow much more flexibility and capabilities, not offered from other machine configurations. With this in mind many of these have multi-axes, upper turrets, lower turrets, CYB and Sub Spindles.
  • SolidCAM has the advanced technology to support the programming of all the latest multi-function CNC machines, providing powerful programming tools that are easy to learn and use, with the ultimate in flexibility and configurability.

  • The use of tail stocks, steady rest, sub spindles, rotary and linear turrets along with C Axis, CY Axis and B Axis, are regular features on today’s Mill-Turn machine tools. In this collision rich environment, the programming of these machines is made simple and safe by utilizing SolidCAM’s turning and milling operations in a single environment.
  • Support for multi-turret and multi-spindle Programming, with turret synchronization and full machine simulation, is seamlessly integrated into one extremely powerful package.

 

 

Use revolutionary iMachining in mill-turn

All SolidCAM milling and turning operations, including the powerful, revolutionary iMachining operations, are available for the programming of mill-turn machines. All ancillary devices can also be defined and taken into account for simulation and gouge checking.

"iMachining halves cycle times and makes cutters last 5 times longer for mill-turn on Mazak" 

Turning Envelope for Complex Mill-Turn parts

Turning Envelopes of complex mill-turn parts are automatically generated by SolidCAM. This aids the user in quickly turning the outermost profile of the part.

Rest material management

SolidCAM goes beyond just programming these complex machines, with intelligent management of rest material between Milling and Turning operations, for the most efficient toolpaths and reduced cycle times, ensuring the highest possible productivity.
