Multitasking Machines

To help shops react quicker and more flexibly to market demands for increasingly complex parts in smaller batch sizes, multi-tasking machines use a single setup to perform different metalworking operations that completely process a part of raw material into a desired final shape and size without manual intervention. This improves part quality, accelerates manufacturing and directly impacts shop capacity, floor space, personnel and profitability.

Multi-Tasking Mania: The Vanishing Single-Function Machine

Multitasking can deliver considerable savings, particularly on complex work that is highly profitable, by completing a part in one cycle and dramatically reducing setup and other non-value-added time, preventing opportunities for error and eliminating work-in-process inventory that might otherwise lay idle between standalone machine tools.
