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
machining process.
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)
respectively.
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.
