TopSolid makes everything easier!
TopSolid makes everything easier!

Programming a B-Axis Mill Turn machine can be difficult. But if you are using the right tool, maybe it doesn’t have to be. With TopSolid, you have a product that really understands what these machines can do. Moreover you have a product that makes it easy to get these types of machines cutting. This video is a teaser of a new series that I am developing. That new series will show you step by step how to program a Mazak Integrex like this with TopSolid.¬†Enjoy the video…and Buy TopSolid! ūüôā

TopSolid 7 – Can programming a Mazak Quick Turn 200m really be this easy?

Let’s be honest…we’re all busy. ¬†We’re all busy working to find little ways to increase efficiency. ¬†Little ways to maybe turn a tiny profit into a slightly larger profit. ¬†Or in some cases, just outright looking for the holy grail solution to solve all of our problems. ¬†In my case, I am always looking to help you, our customers become better at what you do. ¬†After all…that’s my job.

In this video series, I thought it would interesting to show you some fundamentals about programming basic turning and simple milling on a Mazak Quick Turn 200M machine.  This is a great machine. However, there are limits to the machine. This machine for example does allow live tooling, but it has no Y axis.  So in this case to do any milling you need to know how to do C axis programming.  I thought that this part would be a great sample to show how easy it really is to program a machine like this off line.

So¬†without further delay…here are 4 videos for you to check out. ¬†Enjoy.
