Multitasking technology allows manufacturers to select from a variety of part production scenarios. However, it’s not always easy to identify the most efficient process for a job. In response, Mazak will host a free webinar on Tuesday, February 18 at 2 p.m. EST that will explore the role CAM software plays in process planning and optimizing mill-turn operations.

Derek Patrick, Esprit application engineer for DP Technology, will present this Mazak webinar titled “Process Planning for Improved Multitasking Machining.” He will discuss how process planning via CAM software can take the complexity out of multitasking machining so manufacturers can produce parts easier and more efficiently. 

By the end of the 30-minute webinar, participants will be able to:

  • evaluate different machining scenarios and determine which one is the most efficient for their shop;
  • understand how to coordinate multiple operations for maximizing machine uptime;
  • calculate the average working diameter for OD and ID operations to determine if the two are a good match for simultaneous turning on the same spindle;
  • use synchronization codes to coordinate simultaneous machining operations; and
  • perform a time study analysis for evaluating a complete machining process.

Registration for the free webinar is now open on Mazak's website

  • The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining

    The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.

    The Future of Machining - 2005 Efforts to create a CNC-usable product data model are inching forward, but in the meantime, advances in CAM software will make the programmer's job function super-efficient rather than superfluous.

  • 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.
