The SPRINT 20 linear production lathe combines driven tools and a main-spindle Y axis with an accommodating, functional work area to simultaneously machine with two tools, the manufacturer says. The machine is suitable for turning bars ranging to 20 mm in diameter for automotive, electronic, medical and hydraulic sectors. The traversable spindle functions as an integrated spindle motor with an 80-mm stroke along the Z axis. The tools in linear arrangement on slide 1, combined with the driven tools, enable efficient machining on several axes at once, the company says. Simultaneous operations can be conducted on both the main spindle and the counterspindle, which is also designed as an integrated spindle motor.

Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality

Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
