This month’s product spotlight highlights turning equipment—lathes, turning centers, mill-turn machines and even a CNC specifically designed for turning. Many of the turning machines covered have features designed to make them more flexible. For example, the EcoTurn 650 turning center from DMG MORI can be equipped with an optional C axis for turn-mill machining. Meanwhile, the Hwacheon VT-1150 vertical lathe has a geared drive system that enables high-torque turning at low speeds as well as high-speed turning.

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

  • B-Axis Turn/Mills Have Their Place

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.

  • 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.
