3-axis Simultaneous Turning
Efficiency and flexibility for turning operations
hyperMILL® MILL-TURN Machining offers easy-to-program CAM strategies for simultaneous roughing and finishing.
Simultaneous machining further boosts the mill-turning efficiency of machines with a swivel head on the third axis. Complex workpiece geometries can be machined in a single operation by simultaneously adapting the approach angle during turning.
Simultaneous turning programmed with ease
Two special strategies for simultaneous roughing and finishing make programming both simple and reliable. Here, synchronization lines are used to control the movement of the third axis. The simultaneous movement of the third axis is calculated automatically between the synchronization lines.
hyperMILL® MILL-TURN: 3-axis Simultaneous Turning
hyperMILL® MILL-TURN provides 3-axis Simultaneous Turning strategies for finishing and even roughing. The innovative aspect of using a third axis during roughing offers some important advantages like more flexibility and optimal tool utilization.
