When we talk of multitasking machines, we mean flexible, versatile machines, with an emphasis on flexibility. Only in this way can the user’s demand for economical production, even in small lots, be fulfilled by drastically cutting or even completely eliminating retooling times in the production of complicated and close-tolerance parts. Shorter product life cycles, decreasing batch sizes, shorter cycle times, reduction of stocks, downsizing of the working capital – these are the trends that confront machine tool manufacturers with great challenges, leading WFL to present benefits of this special machining concept through examples of using Millturn machine tool technology.
Multitasking machining is engaging a big field of diverse applications and the latest trends in this field will be addressed in this presentation. By the end of this presentation the audience will gain an overview of the various technologies a multitasking machine can offer.
