Expanded Functions For Workshop Programs

The company has expanded the functions of the workshop programs ShopTurn and ShopMill to reduce the programming time for CNC applications and increase productivity at the workshop level. Suited for cycle-controlled flatbed machines, inclined bed lathes and horizontal or vertical turning and milling centers, they are also suited for complex machining centers in machine tool building and mold making. In graphical programming, ShopTurn now supports complex complete lathes with swivel axes and associated milling spindles.

The company has expanded the functions of the workshop programs ShopTurn and ShopMill to reduce the programming time for CNC applications and increase productivity at the workshop level. Suited for cycle-controlled flatbed machines, inclined bed lathes and horizontal or vertical turning and milling centers, they are also suited for complex machining centers in machine tool building and mold making. In graphical programming, ShopTurn now supports complex complete lathes with swivel axes and associated milling spindles. Turning tools, as well as milling tools, can be used here. In the milling area, the B axis can be swiveled and thus functions like a normal swivel axis. The milling tools or drills are aligned or oriented with the B axis. The orientated turning tools can be programmed interactively and graphical milling and drilling allows simple programming in the case of inclined surfaces. ShopTurn also contains a tool management system for multiple tools. Graphical simulation is available for oriented tools and guarantees process safety with swiveled axes. The ShopMill workshop program contains functions like trochoidal milling and plunge milling. The trochoidal milling function is integrated over one cycle, dispensing with the separate programming on an external CAD/CAM system that used to be necessary.
