The use of hybrid machines can, certainly with the mill-turn combination, be called succesful. Without the piece that has to be machined, a lot more operations can be realised. Therefore, the machining proces is simplified, but the creation of the NC-programme has become more complex.
A good CAM software and an even better postprocessor are of paramount importance when programming such machines. Also a complete simulation of the proces is important.
Produsoft writes his own postprocessors and will finetune them on the machine according to the customers specific needs.
