One of the outstanding capabilities of CNC Swiss-type machines is their ability to produce complex parts complete in a single handling. In an effort to emphasis this capability, Tsugami has adopted the theme “touch-once” manufacturing in its IMTS Booth S-9410.
To help call attention to the theme, the company is passing out blinking buttons to booth visitors. During the show, four randomly selected attendees spotted wearing the buttons in the show halls will win an iPad. The iPads are being given away once each afternoon, Monday through Thursday.
New at IMTS is Tsugami’s model BO326 CNC Swiss-type machine, which it is demonstrating in its booth. This newest member of the BO Series is a 32-mm, six-axis machine that can quickly be converted from a direct-drive guide bushing, bar-fed operation to a non-guide bushing operation using an optional chucker kit. This convertibility makes it ideal for continuous production of traditional Swiss-type parts with the flexibility to efficiently manufacture short or prismatic parts from blanks.
The machine uses modular live tooling for quick changeover from job to job and an ergonomically designed work zone for better accessibility. Its dual path Fanuc 321-B CNC enables true simultaneous operation of its main and sub-spindles to optimize cycle times.
In addition to showing the new model BO326, the Tsugami booth also features live cutting demonstrations on seven other models in the Tsugami product line.
Stop by the booth, get a button, see some very cool technology and be registered for a free iPad.
