Turn/Mill & Multitasking Machines

Turn/Mill Machines are capable of both rotating-workpiece operations (turning) and rotating-tool operations such milling and cross-drilling. The machine is typically recognizable as a horizontal or vertical lathe, with spindles for milling and drilling simply available at some or all of the tool positions. A part requiring a variety of operations can be machined in one setup, particularly if a subspindle allows the part to be passed from one spindle to another during machining. More recently introduced turn/mill machines depart from the lathe design into something much more like a hybrid machine—combining a lathe’s chucks and spindles with the travels and milling power of a machining center.
