Example: Rotary case
Horizontal machining centre (multi-channel)
Several tool holders are put into dependency by means of synchronous operation (waiting tickets). There is no limitation with regards to the number of channels (tool carriers) used. For example, 3 turrets may be used either synchronously or asynchronously on different spindles. CutView determines and shows the resulting waiting times and allows the user to purposefully optimise the process.
Multi-channel machining operations may be documented with the aid of an operation sequence plan in the form of a timeline thus making the correlations of synchronous maching operations easily visible.
