Multitasking's "Big" Advantage

As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.


The Buzz about the B Axis

The rotating milling head is a defining feature on a turn-mill machine designed for efficient production of complex parts in low volumes.


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.


The Value Of Probing On Turn-Mills

Part probing isn’t performed as often on turn-mills as it is on conventional machine tools. It does offer advantages for multitasking machines, though. Includes video.


More Efficient Turbine Blade Milling

Video shows a multitasking machine milling a turbine blade in a cycle that few machining centers could replicate.


High-Volume Alternative To Machining Centers

Transfer machines that are flexible rather than dedicated can run large quantities without dedicating labor or floorspace. (Includes video.)


Aluminum Molds In Three Weeks Or Less

While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the s...


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.
