The use of Multi-Task Machines (MTMs) offers many benefits, including the reduced set-ups, increased precision and accuracy, and considerably higher throughput—which all result in higher profits for the production shop. MTM, however, does present challenges, ranging from the selection of machine configuration, to matching parts to machine, to programming the parts, and synchronizing turrets and spindles for safety and maximum efficiency. This webinar will address these topics, through discussion of machine configurations and benefits, and demonstration of part programming, toolpath verification and machine tool simulation.
