Introducing Mastercam Mill-Turn
Mastercam Mill-Turn makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and full-function machining centers simpler and easier than ever before. Machines that eliminate multiple setups, manual part handling, redundant fixturing, and reduce idle time boost production and maximize profitability.
Mastercam Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process on these complex machines with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Utilizing intelligent work plane selection, it’s as easy as selecting the spindle and turret you wish to utilize, and creating your toolpaths using Mastercam’s proven milling and lathe toolpaths.
Synchronization between spindles and turrets is accomplished through a state-of-the-art interface called Mastercam Code Expert. In Mastercam Code Expert, users are able to graphically synchronize multiple streams (upper and lower) of code with ease. Custom G- and M-codes are as easy as selecting a menu item and the code is generated the way you expect it, every time. Once synchronized, Machine Simulation is a click away with accurate visual feedback of the program running on your machine. Check for collisions between the tool, part, shank, fixturing, and machine components visually or through a reporting mechanism. The power of Mastercam, along with Mastercam Code Expert, ensures that your code will be correct and efficient—the way you want it—long before it reaches the machine.
