A mill/turn machine is a versatile, computer numerical controlled (CNC) piece of manufacturing equipment that incorporates both milling and turning capabilities into a single machine. By combining the tool rotation of a mill with the workpiece rotation of turning equipment, a mill/turn machine allows users a higher degree of control and speed, facilitating the completion of complex operations with an exceptional degree of speed and accuracy.
At JIT CNC Machining, we are committed to providing the highest quality machined parts for customers across numerous industries. Our state-of-the-art Mazak Turn/Mill Machines incorporate the latest machining technology into a powerful, flexible system that can produce complex components with extreme efficiency. Unlike more traditional equipment, our turn/mill machines allow us to accommodate complicated designs without multiple setups, part transfers, and in-process adjustments.
Benefits of Mill/Turn Machines
Mill/turn machines are powerful and versatile, with a host of capabilities that allow them to complete highly intricate designs without moving the workpiece between different machines. The added functionality of mill/turn machines offers a variety of benefits over more traditional equipment, including:
Mill/turn machines can complete up to four operations at once, ultimately reducing manufacturing time. Mill/turn machines also offer easier and faster setup than traditional CNC mills and CNC turning centers. Without the need for adjustments and transfers, operators save a significant amount of time and labor on each workpiece.
Precision-machined parts require an exceptional degree of accuracy. Moving workpieces between machines during the manufacturing process creates opportunities to compromise precision cuts and features. With mill/turn machining, the workpiece undergoes multiple processes without the need for manual adjustments, thereby reducing the potential for errors and inaccuracies. This capability makes mill/turn machines ideal for parts that require extremely tight tolerances.
Automated CNC mill/turn machines facilitate the automation of the manufacturing process, offering increased accuracy and better part-to-party repeatability. They also accommodate automation for repetitive ancillary tasks, such as loading and unloading stock materials. Automating these tasks allows manufacturers to redirect labor to more complex tasks and mitigates the risk of repetitive stress injuries among valuable personnel.
