According to the company, the M20 × 60 mid-sized combination lathe is flexible enough to handle a variety of work ranging from single-piece prototypes to high-volume production. The machine features a 15-hp spindle motor, a 20.4" swing over the bed and a 10.25" swing over cross-slide. Bed lengths of 60" and 80" are available, as are spindles with 2.56" or 3.15" through-holes.
Equipped with a GE/Fanuc 21iT control, the lathe can be operated in four different ways: basic, manual, fixed cycles and G-code programming based on job type.
Editor PickRobotic 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.
