ShopTurn is an operating and programming software program for
turning machines that makes it easy for you to operate the machine
and to program workpieces.
Various tools are used for machining workpieces. The geometry and
technological data of these tools must be known to ShopTurn before
you execute your program.
ShopTurn provides the "Tool list", "Tool wear list" and "Magazine list"
screen forms for managing your tools,
You must enter all the tools that you want to use on the turning
machine in the tools list. The tools that are in the tool turret must be
assigned to specific magazine locations. You can also sort and delete
Load/Unload When a tool is loaded, it is taken to a magazine location.
Unloading removes the tool from the magazine.
Sorting Tools can be sorted in the tool and tool wear lists according to
magazine location, name and type.
Machine data can be set to hide "Load", "Unload" and "Sort" softkeys.
Manual tools are included in the tool list, but not stored in the
magazine. They must be attached to the spindle by hand.
You must enter the wear data for your tools in the tool wear list.
ShopTurn takes this data into account on machining the workpiece.
You can also activate tool monitoring here as well as disable tools or
identify them as oversized.
The magazine locations are listed with their tools; magazine locations
are indicated as disabled (G) / not disabled ( ), and the properties
assigned to the active tool (e.g. oversize (U) are displayed in the
