Ganesh Machinery’s Bolt-Master series of CNC gang-tool lathes feature a variety of workhandling solutions, including vibratory bowl feeds and racked parts to automatically feed the spindle without operator assistance.
The three-axis Cyclone GT-32 lathe features 6,000 rpm, 10 hp, 1"-diameter ballscrews and hydraulic collet actuation. It also offers rigid tapping and a bar capacity of 1 3/8", and quick-changeover tool bars and high tool-density solutions. When additional tooling is needed, an eight-station tool turret is available that can mount multiple tools in each tool station.
The lathe features a C axis for machining cross holes, wire holes or Nylok slots on fasteners, and high-speed-driven and servo-driven tools are available that can rigid tap to complete the job in one handling. A Traub A-32 or 5C collet chuck can be used for workholding, and a 5"-diameter, three-jaw hydraulic chuck is available for larger work.

This machine can run for a long time without any operator intervention, and users can machine finished parts from slug stock or cast blanks while achieving the same high productivity as if they were machining from barstock, the company says.
