DIRECT MILLING ON CNC CAROUSEL

Abstract

The article discusses an application of new possibilities for the older type of machine. This machine is a heavy vertical lathe in the single column design (series carousel SKJ) which after modernization has a new CNC control system. It has a generally wide range of standardized machining cycles, which are determined not only for carousels. When upgrading the system usually not all software on the machine is operational. That would be useless and expensive. Limited possibilities of the original carousel are then enhanced by the software. In particular, it is the machining of non-rotating surfaces on rotary components. Longer production cycle shorten time because there is no need to move the direct machining to another machine. The operation of these heavy machines are energy-intensive, so the use of advances positively influence the economy of production.
