Methods Machine Tools Inc.’s Nakamura-Tome NTJ-100 multitasking turn/mill center is well-suited for a range of production needs. Applications range from low to high volume lots of medical, aerospace, general job shop components and more.
The multitasking center offers fast tool changes compared with a full tool spindle ATC machine. A tool capacity—up to 54 tool stations for turning and 24 tool stations for milling tools—reduces setup time. For faster cycle times, the NTJ-100 has two high rigidity turrets, each with a Y axis – 3.5 inches (80 mm) on the upper and 2.6 inches (65 mm) on the lower, facilitating pinch turn and pinch mill operations. An upper turret swiveling B axis with a range of 182 degrees is ideal for easily producing angular features, eliminating the requirement for expensive angle milling heads.
The Nakamura NTJ-100 is a great option for job shops looking for an economical, efficient multitasking turn/mill solution versus a full tool spindle machine.
