Video: In-Process Scanning of a Turned Profile—via Robot

A robot reaching into a lathe measures along the entire part length in seconds, determining whether additional machining is needed.

Video: Turn-Mill Probes for Accurate Camshaft Machining

Feature-to-feature accuracy for diesel camshaft segments is possible thanks to in-process probing.

Video: Two-Spindle Machine Turns and Mills Turbo Housings

This five-axis, two-spindle machining center shows how multitasking machines can be used for production applications.

Turning On A Machining Center

VIDEO. Part of Renishaw’s automated production process, this turning operation uses tools affixed to the machining center’s table while the workpiece is mounted in the spindle.

Video: Increased Productivity With More (Not Fewer) Setups

VIDEO. Valve maker Richards Industries took a part that used to machined at one machine tool and added an additional setup on a vertical machining center. Higher throughput was the result.

Video: Three-Machine Lean Cell At Richards Industries

VIDEO. For this valve maker, a part that might have been machined in one setup on a multitasking machine tool is instead machined with greater throughput using a series of simpler machines. Company personnel explain.
