May 15, 2013 - Methods Machine Tools Inc. is introducing Version 6.0 of CAMplete TurnMill software for Nakamura-Tome multitasking turning centers, which includes several upgrades for greater macro language support, improved error handling and increased post processing capabilities. CAMplete TurnMill software is an integrated suite of G-Code editing, optimization, analysis and verification tools, enabling a full range of turn/mill functions, and comes standard on the full line of Nakamura multitasking turning centers.

CAMplete TurnMill Version 6.0 offers added support for FANUC Macro B language including G# and M# calls; G65 macro calls; local, common, system and shared variables; variable math; IF/GOTO statements and sub program calls. Users now have the ability to create custom macros that can be easily inserted into any G-Code or formatted program.

Upgrades also include improved error handling, reporting and navigation, and an enhanced simulation progress display that now shows nested program calls. Newly designed regeneration controls have been added to show the active program and current location, including line number, within the program. Post processing support has been broadened in CAMplete TurnMill Version 6.0 to be compatible with Delcam's PowerMILL CAM software for milling from CUT files for 3+2 milling, 5-Axis milling and canned cycles; Mastercam CAD/CAM software support from NCI files; as well as OPEN MIND's hyperMILL post processing from POF files. Mastercam and HyperMill post processing works with ATC and WT-Series machines, turning, milling and 5-Axis milling.

"CAMplete TurnMill Version 6.0 features upgrades that will further enhance our Nakamura multitasking solution. Users now have a number of new functions which will result in greater productivity," said Richard Parenteau, Director of Applications Development at Methods Machine Tools.

Additional upgrades include stock creation for the main/sub-spindle and new material removal simulation. CAMplete TurnMill Version 6.0 offers full 64-bit support to accommodate larger programs and provide increased performance. The tool library has been redesigned and enhanced for greater ease-of-use and faster processing. CAMplete TurnMill software was originally developed to create a program that could combine G-Code from CAM systems and hand-coded G-Code into a set of programs that could be simulated, fine-tuned and optimized using detailed 3-D Nakamura machine models.
