【Press Release】A new function “Drop Converter” eases multi-turret programming!

HAKUSAN, ISHIKAWA – Nakamura-Tome Precision Industry Co., Ltd (President Ken’ichi NAKAMURA) developed a new function “Drop Converter”. This function enables to shift each process from one turret to other turrets easily and contributes to reduce operator’s workloads and to create a program shortly.

■ Outline of the Drop Converter
The Drop Converter is a function to copy and drop each process of a programing created for one-turret two-spindle machining to multiple-turret machining. When it transfers a process, the Drop Converter automatically converts Z-axis direction, M-code and G-code responding to the original turret and program. Therefore, this function achieves to expand one-turret two-spindle program to multi-turret program more simply at once.

■ Background of the development
Ordinary, when operators copy and drop a process from one turret program to multiple turret programs, they need to modify the program manually. It requires operators to recognize the difference of the turrets to transfer sub programs included in the process or invert Z-axis direction correctly. We developed this function to reduce the complexity and enables anyone to create a multiple turret program easily.

■ Comment from COO Shogo Nakamura
Multifunctional multitasking machines equipped with multiple turrets are showing up increasingly in the market in these days. This situation enhances the level of productivity and many types of manufacturing becomes possible.
On the other hand, many customers suggest insecure feelings whether they are able to create a program for multiple turrets, or express they would like to make the program more easily. Then, the Drop Converter was developed.
The most attractive point is this function can create all program if you create a one-turret program to machine on the both of the L-side and R-side spindles. I hope many people use the Drop Converter and create a program even with a multi-turret machine.
