MORI-AP is PC-based system which is compatible with the MAPPS II/III conversational programming system used on its machine tools. MORI-AP allows operations which previously had to be done at the factory to be performed in the office. The machining program data created on PC can be transferred to MAPPS II/III. Also, data which ischanged on MAPPS II/III, such as cutting conditions, can be transferred back to the PC and re-edited, allowing the data created using the conversational programming function to be centrally managed. The MORI-AP line-up has four different packages: MORI-APL (for CNC lathes), MORI-APM (for machining centers), MORI-APZT (for opposite 2-turret lathes) and MORI-APNT (for integrated mill turn centers). MORI-AP allows operations which previously had to be done at the factory to be performed in the office.
