The goal of multi-task machining (MTM) is to produce an entire part in a single, uninterrupted, automatic program without stopping to change the setup or tooling manually. MTM enables getting at many sides without re-chucking, a high level of precision, increased productivity, and lights-out machining. Through one machining center and a single setup, shops have reported significant time and cost savings.
To use multi-task machines effectively, you need specialized CAM software to define the tool movement, simulate the operations, and post process the output.
Using multi-task machines with the right CAM software enables shops to reduce cycle time and improve part quality, which leads to increased profitability.
