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.


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.)


Hobbing on a Turning Center

This manufacturer’s use of live-tool lathes overcomes labor cost in various ways. One of the latest sources of savings involves bringing another operation—hobbing—into these machines. INCLUDES VIDEO.
