Modern mill turn machining centers often can handle profile turning combined with continuous tool axis orientation. Let’s see how can we program this in NX!

Marek Pawlus Marek’s focus is development of postprocessors, NC code simulation kits and NX Open applications for NX CAM.
In 2016 Marek founded NCmatic in Poland to provide services for NX CAM users. In 2017 NCmatic became Siemens’ Software and Technology Partner. In 2018 Marek launched second location of NCmatic in Morgan Hill, California, to make it even easier for companies from United States to cooperate with NCmatic.
Marek graduated from University of Technology in Rzeszow, Poland in 2010 with master’s degree in Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering.
While Marek’s area of interest is CAM software and CNC controllers, he also has hands-on experience as CAM programmer in motorsport industry.
I am interested for b axis live machining.
I have intergrex (I 100 -Mazak) turn mill machine with nx cam.
shall you send me the post processor for the same.
please send me test program with cam file for trial..
looks briliant on the screen, bu never worked on the machine. NX for turning is such pain, so overcomplicated…
believe me – it works on real machines as well 🙂 Just need a proper postprocessor and some training and you are good to go.
