How to define "mini-turret" / "Flash" tool holders for IS&V

Esteemed Contributor
Esteemed Contributor

Working on a mill-turn where they want full IS&V.

They will be using "multi" tool holders (AKA "flash" or "miniturret" tooling)

for example Sandvik C5-ASHR3-36123-20  - http://www.sandvik.coromant.com/en-gb/products/pages/productdetails.aspx?c=C5-ASHR3-36123-20

 

When defining the tool library tool & tool geometry for this type of holder, how do you do it?

Separate tool ID for each insert / position?

Then separate tool geometry / assembly file for each insert, with the tool rotated to the correct position?

 

Or something else?

Currently, we recommend to use a device as multi tool holder and insert individual tools in each position.

We are developing multi-tools now, which you should probably see around NX 11.0.2 or later. @Ken_A let me know if you would like to see a demo.

Well, we'll be on NX10 for a while yet.

How do I set up the junctions so I can mount a "regular" tool or a "device" in the (live tool) "spindle"?
