Much like VoluMill, VoluTurn offers manufacturers the ability to significantly increase productivity by reducing cycle times while also reducing wear on cutting tools. VoluTurn is a task-specific turning solution targeted at the types of parts most commonly associated with the power-generation industry. However, VoluTurn may well prove to be effective elsewhere in other industries which experience similar challenges related to complex toolpath creation and hard-to-machine materials. Currently, VoluTurn supports the use of round inserts only.
VoluTurn will also increase productivity for manufacturers by greatly reducing man-hours for programmers who are currently required to manually create toolpaths by using CAD geometry, such as lines and arcs, to drive cutting tools.
