Step 5 – Programming a Multus U3000 – Finish Groove with Lower Turret

In the fifth video of this 25-video series on programming a Multus U3000 with TopSolid, I finish our groove using a lower turret.

I changed the type of finished I want to profiling, but just to be a little different, I decided to use the machine’s lower turret. After selecting the tool I believe will be best for the job, I must adjust the toolpath because the machine contains a slant bed lower. The machine’s kinemetric information I have already taught TopSolid allows me to visualize exactly what is going on and make the proper decisions.Step 5 - Programming a Multus U3000 – Finish Groove with Lower Turret

Finally, I want to program from two directions at once and to program my two points for a highly accurate toolpath.

After a quick setting of our feeds and speeds and a final check using TopSolid’s simulation, we are all set.
