The Traub TNL18 P production turning machine is capable of five-axis machining in a single setup. Able to accommodate barstock ranging to 20 mm in diameter, the TNL18 can produce long or short precision parts with or without a guide bush. As many as three tools can be used on the part at once.
For increased productivity, the tool capacity can be increased to 54 tools through dual- and multi-holders. The high-precision, fast turret indexing enables chip-to-chip time of 0.3 sec.
Suited for medical component machining as well as for aerospace parts, the machine delivers precision and qualified surface finish in a single operation, the company says.
