What is a Mill-Turn Machine?

Mill-Turn machines are multitasking, multi-function CNC machines capable of producing complex parts in a single operation through rotating tool operations. The machine’s ability to perform multiple functions simultaneously increases shop productivity by reducing setups, redundant fixturing, manual part handling, and idle time.

Mill Turn in Mastercam

Mastercam Mill-Turn hosts a single environment for both establishing routines and testing cutting strategies before you set your stock on the machine. With its smart, stock-aware toolpaths and visually-precise machine simulation feature, you can create parts without the risk of costly collisions or damage to your machine.

This mill and lathe hybrid software uses Mastercam’s milling and lathe toolpaths to simplify the programming process with automated job setups and part handling tools customized to your machine. 

Some highlights of this Mastercam product are:

  • Optimization, synchronization, and visualization in a single platform
  • Automation to easily manage complex operations between multiple machine data streams
  • Efficient milling, turning, and drilling operations with fewer setups at high speed
  • Program simple lathes to complex machines
  • Powerful Gantt- or Tree-style synchronization
