Ganesh says its KSL-7612T heavy-duty boxway CNC turning center with Fanuc control is suited for manufacturers looking to reduce cost. It features full bar, chuck and shaft machining capability; 3" bar capacity; a 10" chuck; a 15.75" turning diameter; and a 25.5" turning length.
The 0.3-second index of the 12-station turret lessens cycle times and virtually any combination of ID and OD tools can be mounted. The 50-hp Fanuc, AC-digital spindle motor powers roughing operations and the 3,500-rpm spindle provides fine surface finishes, the company says. The machine’s power, coupled with the rigidity of heavily ribbed cast iron construction to damp cutting vibration, enhances productivity and provides quality surface finish and improved tool life. The heavy-duty MT-5 programmable, tagalong tailstock with M-code quill activation supports shaft work.
