Advanced mill-turn programming in SprutCAM
Swiss-type machines and MTM (multi-channel machining) with synchronization

All milling and turning strategies are suitable for advanced mill-turn programming in SprutCAM

Swiss-type toolpath calculation and machining simulation

The simulation show all complex moving parts with no exceptions and provider proper collision control to the user.

Multichannel with synchronization (MTM)

Multi-channel machining on turn, mill-turn machines and Swiss-type machines.

Sync points setup

Each MTM node works with a separate controller, according to its program.

Therefore, it is necessary to create NC code for each machine controller.

These programs should be synchronized, so, waiting possibility is necessary.

SprutCAM has the sync points setup feature for this purpose. Sync points can be put anywhere in the NC code.
Machine time optimization
Evaluation and load balancing on each of the control channels. Distribution of job between channels.
Toolpath calculation and simulation
Machine kinematic schemes with several nodes, several workpiece fixing places and possibility of axes distribution between several channels.
Auxiliary operations
Loading, unloading and takeover of the workpiece programming.

Automatic part loader programming
CNC lathe and industrial robot work together. The robot loads, turns and unloads the workpiece. Lathe works according to it's NC code. The machine and the robot are synchronized. The whole process is programmed in SprutCAM.
