Turn-Cut is a programming option available on Okuma horizontal machining centers that allows the machine to create bores and diameters that include circular and/or angular features. This enables users to turn features on large, unbalanced parts on the same platform where standard CNC machining functions are performed, eliminating the need to purchase special-purpose machines, tooling, fixtures or add-on components. Adding the Turn-Cut functionality to a machining center does not interfere with performance or longevity of the machine, and often enhances performance with the addition of abso-scales and in some cases, Super-NURBS.
Cutting is performed on a horizontal machining center with the Turn-Cut function by synchronizing the circular motion of the feed axis with the spindle’s turning angle (tool tip position control). The surfaces created by Turn-Cut can be either on the outside or inside diameter of the machined part.
-Provides process optimization without the need for specialized tooling, fixturing, or attachments
-Simplifies fixturing and reduces set up time
-Eliminates the need for expensive index chucks for manufacturing small valves or Ts
-Eliminates the need for complex heads or specialized tooling to control the tool path
