Benefits and Description

Multitask solid turning tools are introduced to better address the production requirements of mill and turn centers. These tools have multiple inserts and can be rotated in the turret to provide multiple turning tool definitions while using a single pocket. Each insert has an associated offset number and the outline of the multitask tool, based on the selected tip orientation, is used for toolpath degouging.
