Mill Turn

Mastercam Mill-Turn

Mastercam Mill-Turn gives you fully associative programming for turning:

• Powerful graphical synchronization.
• State-of-the-art interface (Mastercam Code Expert).
• Machine Simulation is a click away with accurate visual feedback.

Simplifying Complex Machines

  It makes machining on today’s high-
  powered, multi-stream machining centers
  simpler and easier. It automates much of
  the complexity, letting you program parts 
  faster and with less effort. Designed to
  compliment Mastercam’s powerful milling
  and turning toolpaths, Mill-Turn delivers the
  best in shop-tested cutting techniques
  combined with the latest in machine and
  toolpath management and verification.

 

Streamlined Workflow

1. Job Setup Choose the initial machine environment. Mastercam uses it to automate part transfers, toolplane creation, stock definition, setup, and multi-stream machining.

2. Tooling and Toolpaths Mastercam Mill-Turn combines our powerful milling and turning strategies with automated toolplanes, simplified toolpath and tooling selection, and fast axis combination definitions. This eliminates many of the common programming complexities, saving you time and effort.

3. Automated Part Transfer Proven, pre-defined strategies simplify the part transfer process and ensure it works the first time.

4. Interactive Synchronization Management The Sync Manager lets you quickly sync operations across multiple streams, customize G-code output, and provides visual cues to help you optimize toolpath sequencing and the code sent to your machine.

5. Machine Simulation Simulate machining operations, synching across multiple streams, part transfers, and highlight any potential timing issues or collisions.

6. Post Your Code and Cut Your Part Send G-code to your machine, confident that it will run with little or no modification needed by the operator.

Synchronization Made EasyMastercam

Mill-Turn has all of the tools necessary to graphically optimize part cycle times and avoid collisions. With the Sync Manager, you can:

• Use an unlimited number of streams.
• Drag, drop, and sync operations across multiple streams.
• Expand and contract the timeline for trouble-free viewing of the part process.
• Graphical feedback, tooltips, and color-coded operations keep you better
   informed.
• Vertical Stream and Gantt timeline views helps you coordinate machining
  operations and track cycle time estimates.
• Customizable programming “tokens” let you tailor the G-code representation in
   the final output based on your requirements.

Fast and Accurate Simulation

Safely simulate your job on a virtual machine before it reaches your shop floor.

 • Full simulation of every moving component
   of your machine, including material, main
   and sub spindles, tool holders, and part
   handling devices.

 • Automatic collision detection. Catch
   potential collisions and identify areas of
   optimization in a virtual environment prior
   to running on the machine.

 • Accurately represent spindle and turret
   indexing.

 • Start, stop, rewind, or jump to any point in simulation using the progress bar and 
   playback features to view specific operations.

• Simultaneously view all streams while simulating your part, analyze material removal
   and view statistics on the entire machining process.

Machine Environment

Mastercam Mill-Turn uses an advanced machine environment to ensure accurate
programming. A set of interdependent components and parameters model your 
machine’s behavior for precise simulation, part transfer, tool location and setup,
operation libraries and post processing.Multiple machine environments are available,
and you can purchase additional environments as your needs grow.

Code Expert

Mastercam Code Expert incorporates an entire suite of tools for managing multitasking
applications. Easily access your syncing, simulation, and G-code editing and posting from
a single simple interface
