The 12-axis Swiss-type machine features an independent three-turret design to allow three tools to be used at any time, working simultaneously in the cut. Fully independent front/back machining capability enables a variety of tools to make complicated parts in a single operation. Providing fast rapids and a quick tool change with great accuracies, the ECAS-20T is suitable for traditionally difficult and complex parts, the company says.
The company’s motion control system optimizes machining operations by controlling the position of multiple tools, tool feed rates and machining speeds. Each control system can function independently, allowing all tools to carry out separate operations for optimum machining. According to the company, an advantage of the system is a reduction in idle machine time.
