High Performance Turning
The TMX series of slant-bed lathes from Hurco includes three turning centers: TMX8, TMX8MY and TMX8MYS, all of which include construction and high-performance specifications for efficiency. Specifications include rapids of 950 ipm (X axis) and 1,200 ipm (Z axis), a spindle speed of 14,500 rpm and a 36-hp spindle motor. The all-digital control, drives and motors along with absolute encoders on all linear axes provide superior surface finish capability, the company says.
Two of the turning centers, the TMX8MY and the TMX8MYS, have a live tool turret with Y-axis capability for multitasking. In addition to high-performance specifications and live tooling, the TMX8MYS has a programmable, synchronous subspindle with C-axis control and bidirectional part transfer capability.
