Reduction of floor to floor time

The number of machines involved in the machining process is drastically reduced. Queuing up in front of machines or transportation from one machine to the next is reduced to a minimum. Work scheduling and planning is extremely simplified. The cost-consuming stock piling of semi-finished parts is reduced.

Increased flexibility

Set-up times for MILLTURNS are usually less than 30 min when changing to another clamping or part. Expensive and complicated fixtures are not necessary. Due to the enormous technological capabilities, MILLTURN’s offers more creative possibilities in the customer's design department.

Increased utilisation

Decreasing set-up times are equivalent to a significant increase in productive hours.

Reduction of manpower

The reduction of the number of machines involved in the production process automatically reduces personnel requirements for operation, inspection, part transport and work scheduling. The complete machining process combines formerly individual processes in just one operation with a now comparatively longer task time, which makes it possible for operators to work on several machines.

Increased quality

As opposed to single-process machining where workpieces have to be clamped several times, complete machining saves clamping time and costs and at the same time avoids clamping and adjustment errors.
