Different levels of multitasking machine tools address different types of parts.
Combining flexible manufacturing with volume production capability helps this shop cover all the bases.
One of the biggest challenges to tool monitoring on a multitasking machine is coping with simultaneous cutting operations. Caron Engineering (Wells, Maine) designed a system to meet this challenge.
This article looks at part processing and CNC programming considerations for vertical multitasking applications.

Available from Starrag, Bumotec SA’s S-191 Linear series of CNC turning/milling centers uses linear motors to ensure maximum precision and reliable repeat accuracy when processing gold, silver or platinum for producing parts such as watch components, medical implants and instruments.
Mazak has been manufacturing machine tools in Florence, Kentucky, for 40 years. The growth and development of the production technology deployed in this plant reflect the most important advances in manufacturing during this span—from enhanced flexible manufacturing systems and multitasking part processing to automation and digital-driven manufacturing.
The Traub TNL32P or TNL32 turn/mill centers include several new features that set new standards for sliding/fixed headstock machining, including an even larger workspace, ten-station turrets, higher performance data and the “dual drive,” which is a turret, with two integrated drivetrains that reduces secondary processing times.
