CAP II FOR TWO–PATH LATHE
WITH TWO OPPOSING SPINDLES
1. CAP II FOR TWO–PATH
LATHE WITH TWO
This is a conversational automatic programming function which is
dedicated for creating part programs for the 2–path lathe with two
opposing spindles each of which accompanies its own turret.
D Part programs are generated associating the primary turret tools with
the primary spindle for the primary machining process and the
secondary turret tools with the secondary spindle for the secondary
D Coordinate systems for both the primary turret (path 1) and the
secondary turret (path 2) are as shown in Fig.1.1 (a) and Fig.1.1 (b)
D Conveying process of the work between the spindles can be
programmed by using the Sub Cycle Function.
D Animated simulation for both primary and secondary machining
processes can be performed simultaneously.
