This webinar focuses on the various functionality milling machines and controls offer for combined mill-turn operation. In addition of the large set of standard turning cycles the webinar also discusses special topics such as facing slides and gear hobbing as well as option such as CAD import and tool compensation. Benefits of the combined mil-turn control are introduced and it is touched on requirements for operation (locking the spindle and switching between the modes). 

Primary Topics: 
• Mill-Turn: what are the advantages to do that in a VMC. (Focus TNC640) 
• Cycles that are offered and the basic requirements and benefits 
• State-of-the-art eccentric turning and 5-Axis simultaneous turning 
• Special functions: Facing head applications, interpolation turning and gear hobbing 
• How the Heidenhain Dynamic Precision Package enhances interpolation turning.
