Multitasking's "Big" Advantage
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.

The Buzz about the B Axis
The rotating milling head is a defining feature on a turn-mill machine designed for efficient production of complex parts in low volumes.

Video: Turn-Mill Probes for Accurate Camshaft Machining
Feature-to-feature accuracy for diesel camshaft segments is possible thanks to in-process probing.

Video: Two-Spindle Machine Turns and Mills Turbo Housings
This five-axis, two-spindle machining center shows how multitasking machines can be used for production applications.

The Value Of Probing On Turn-Mills
Part probing isn’t performed as often on turn-mills as it is on conventional machine tools. It does offer advantages for multitasking machines, though. Includes video.

More Efficient Turbine Blade Milling
Video shows a multitasking machine milling a turbine blade in a cycle that few machining centers could replicate.

High-Volume Alternative To Machining Centers
Transfer machines that are flexible rather than dedicated can run large quantities without dedicating labor or floorspace. (Includes video.)

Hobbing on a Turning Center
This manufacturer’s use of live-tool lathes overcomes labor cost in various ways. One of the latest sources of savings involves bringing another operation—hobbing—into these machines. INCLUDES VIDEO.

The Part Is Longer Than The Lathe
Here is one custom machine builder’s system for producing a 40-foot part that has to be passed through the turning center and out the other side. INCLUDES VIDEO.

Side Turn-Milling Of A Massive Crankshaft
This video footage showing the machining of a massive crankshaft suggests some of the possibilities of turn-milling. Not all shops realize possibilities such as this even on their own smaller-scale turn-mill equipment.
