How Fast Can You Change Over a Multi-Spindle?
Today’s CNC multi-spindles feature design elements that enable these high-production machine tools to be effective for lower-volume jobs that require more frequent setups.
What’s Still Cam-Driven and Why?
Combining select cam-driven functions with CNC technology for this multi-spindle platform is said to help reduce machine cost while retaining high machining speed, precision and production.
Production Turning to CNC
The precision production turning industry is trending away from cam-actuated automatics. While limited legacy machine capability and skilled labor resources are two large factors, economics is the primary driver.
