Bumotec’s S-191V is among the smallest VMT machines on the market. It is ideal for multitasking applications in the watch-making and medical industries.

Machining a workpiece in the vertical plane has long been an efficient way to load/unload and take advantage of gravity. Applying various forms of machining processes to what was traditionally a turning process has opened up significant advantages to this workpiece orientation.

Milling, drilling, turning and boring are now available to shops looking to perform multitasking operations on what is basically a vertical turning lathe. This article looks at applying multitasking machines in efficient and productive ways. Moreover, it looks at how to best program the multiple operations in a sequence that optimizes production. Programming systems have come a long way to help automate programming of complex workpieces and the sequence of operations that multitasking machine tools are capable of performing.
