Mill Turn

CAMWorks Mill-Turn is increasing productivity and flexibility by allowing Milling and Turning on the same machine tool. The same Mill and Turn features identified by Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) and defined using Interactive Feature Recognition (IFR) are supported in Mill-Turn.

Key features in CAMWorks Mill-Turn include automatic roughing, finishing, thread milling and single point (drilling, boring, reaming, tapping) cycles and all 3 Axis cycles.

  • PRODUCT DETAILS

    Mill-Turn extends the capabilities of CAMWorks Milling and Turning

    • The same Mill and Turn features identified by Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) and defined using Interactive Feature Recognition (IFR) are supported in Mill-Turn. IFR can be used to define 3 Axis features for Y-axis milling and wrapped features for cylindrical features machined by C-axis motion.
    • The operations that are generated for features are the same as the operations in CAMWorks 2.5 Axis Milling, 3 Axis Milling and Turning. These include automatic roughing, finishing, thread milling and single point (drilling, boring, reaming, tapping) cycles and all 3 Axis cycles.

    C, Y and B Axis Machining

    Machining cycles are available for C, Y and B axis machining at compound angles and on the Face, ID and OD of a part.

    The following mill tool axis motion is supported:

    C-Axis OD (OD Free, Wrapped)

    • Generates wrapped toolpath on a cylinder about the turning axis (Z). Z and C arecontrolled simultaneously while the tool stays on the centerline of the part.

    Y-Axis OD (OD Fixed)

    • Toolpath is generated on a fixed C-axis position.
    • For 2.5 Axis Milling, the tool moves to depth in X with Y,Z simultaneous cutting.

    B-Axis OD

    • Toolpath is generated on a fixed C and B axis position
    • For 2.5 Axis Milling, the tool moves to depth in one axis with simultaneous cutting in other axes.

    Face Milling (Fixed, Free)

    • For 2½ Axis Milling, the tool positions to depth in Z with X,Y simultaneous or X,C simultaneous cutting.
